Recent theology offers few attempts to come to grips with the meaning and implications of the ascension of Jesus.
Professor Farrow makes his approach through the scriptures, the Eucharistic liturgy, the fathers and the reformers, before tracing his subject into modern times. He not only demonstrates that the doctrine of the ascension has played a much larger role in the history of Christian and western thought than is generally realized, but tackles many of the difficult questions others have been content to ignore.
"A key study of an important but neglected topic. Farrow demonstrates admirably how much in theology depends upon a right approach to the ascension."
Colin E. Gunton
King's College, London
"This is a most important book. Professor Farrow's meticulous scholarship and penetrating theological judgement will together guarantee this study a long life and widespread influence."
Princeton Theological Seminary
"By reclaiming the ecclesiological and sacramental significance of the ascension this book takes a great step forward in the recovery of the full breadth of the economy of salvation. It is nothing less than a theological breakthrough."
