Product Description

"If Christian hope is reduced to the salvation of the soul in a heaven beyond death, wrote Jürgen Moltmann, it loses its power to renew life and change the world, and its flame is quenched." Thomas Rausch, SJ, agrees, arguing that too often the hoped-for eschaton has been replaced by an almost exclusive emphasis on the four last things death and judgment, heaven and hell. But eschatology cannot be reduced to the individual salvation.

In this book, Rausch explores eschatology s intersections with Christology, soteriology, ecclesiology, and, perhaps most intriguingly, liturgy. With the early Christians, he sees God s future as a radically social reality, already present initially in Christian worship, especially in the celebration of the Eucharist. This fresh and insightful work of theology engages voices both ancient and contemporary.

Editorial Reviews

The clarity and fair-mindedness with which Rausch presents and compares [the views of many theologians] is admirable. For anyone who is not already widely read in this subject, his book will be an invaluable introduction and guide.

Rita Ferrone, Author of Liturgy: Sacrosanctum Concilium

Thomas Rausch has once again filled a significant gap in contemporary theology with this volume that considers the aim and goal of Christian life with particular attention to the liturgy and Christology. With the thoroughness and clarity that have come to characterize his writings, he introduces the reader to a wide range of contemporary theologians while offering a clear path and solid Catholic theology.
John F. Baldovin, SJ, Professor of Historical and Liturgical Theology, Boston College

From the Bible to Benedict XVI, Thomas Rausch provides a wide variety of resources to engage the topic of eschatology today. I recommend this well-written and readable book for everyone interested in the interconnection between eschatology and Christology.
Michael L. Cook, SJ, Professor of Religious Studies, Gonzaga University
