Publisher's Description

Redeeming Time addresses the temporal imbalance and disorientation that is widely reported in the post-industrial West. The essay evolves by analyzing the philosophical and aesthetic contexts, first of our own experience of time, then of the Judaic context within which the Gospels developed, and finally of the Gospels themselves. In this way, Chilton interprets the visions of eternity in Israel's Scriptures and in the New Testament that healed the breaches of time in their own epochs and still have the power to do so in ours.
