2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Andrew Morton on 2 Nov. 2009
Format: Paperback
The field of eschatology has become something of a minefield in Christian circles over the last few decades. Much discussion has revolved around proposed timetables for the parousia, more or less detailed descriptions of end-time events etc etc. Now, while these may make for lively discussion they are something of a specialised taste.
This book focusses on the significance of Christian hopes of the end times for the way we live in the here and now. A collection of essays, rather than a single work, the book is inevitably patchy. Some chapters are very good; others seem somewhat waffly. Some of the writers have the discipline of writing to a set target in terms of length of essay, others are less successful. Taken together, though, the book is definitely more than the sum of its parts and succeeds in its intention of demonstrating that eschatology has ramifications for all aspects of Christian living. I found the last section of the book, which deals with the environment and ethics, to be particularly stimulating.
