Product Description

"God has gone up with a shout," declares Psalm 47:5. Sometimes treated more like an addendum to the resurrection, the ascension is here seen as an essential tenet of the creed. Farrow's extraordinary study overflows with observations from Scripture, patristic writers, the Reformers, and modern thinkers. 192 pages, softcover. T. & T. Clark.

Editorial Reviews

How does the risen and ascended Christ exercise his life-giving lordship? Farrow's answer, developed out of a rich biblical and patristic background, provides strikingly fresh and accessible insights into ecclesiology, sacramental theology, Mariology, and the ongoing Christian engagement with modern culture. The theological passion is infectious.
The Trinity, the Eucharist, politics, cosmic order, all look different from the vantage point he takes up in this beautifully written book...Expressed with a clarity that comes from years of careful thinking through the issues involved, Ascension Theology is an absolutely first-rate addition to the body of Catholic systematics.
In this bracing and engaging book, Farrow shows why it is important for Christians to grapple with the Ascension as the natural outcome of the story of Jesus and the pattern of hope for those who are "in Christ"... The study nicely bridges the gap between the ancient faith tradition and political thought today.
Those who read Farrow's outstanding text will be sobered - but also strengthened for the many challenges Christians will face in the years ahead.
I read Ascension Theology in one sitting, unable to put it down... Much contemporary theology suffers from too much talk with too little said. Farrow, on the contrary, has more than a few things to say and he admirably succeeds in expressing them in the throbbing discourse characteristic of the early fathers... No serious theologian or student of theology can afford to ignore this work. Tolle lege, take and read!
Farrow is a widely read and deep thinker, and the book evidences a deeply passionate commitment and engages, in an often feisty manner, the many issues at stake in modernity's gnosticizing attacks on the gospel.
Farrow's book represents a wonderful example of contemporary theological reflection based on the 'traditional' Patristic interpretation of the very enigmatical episode of Christ's exaltation... We can only applaud Prof Douglas Farrow for his beneficial and inspired book and hope that it reaches the wide audience intended by its author.
The central thesis of Farrow's work, here and in his earlier book, is a crucial and timely correction to continuing 'gnostic' trends in contemporary theology. Much of what he says in commendation of Roman Catholicism is worthy of careful, if critical, response.
Recommended as a Book for Christmas by George Weigel in the November issues of First Things and Crisis Magazine.
Farrow's text is enhanced through the inclusion fourteen color illustrations, a fulsome bibliography and index, and a series of pseudo-appendices that form a short prayer book for the reader's own contemplation of the Ascension. It deserves a wide readership among thinking Christians everywhere.
