Product Description

This is the culmination of Kärkkäinen's multivolume magnum opus.

This fifth and final volume of Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen's ambitious five-volume systematic theology develops a constructive Christian eschatology and ecclesiology in dialogue with the Christian tradition, with contemporary theology in all its global and contextual diversity, and with other major living faiths—Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism.

In Part One of the book Kärkkäinen discusses eschatology in the contexts of world faiths and natural sciences, including physical, cosmological, and neuroscientific theories. In Part Two, on ecclesiology, he adopts a deeply ecumenical approach. His proposal for greater Christian unity includes the various dimensions of the church's missional existence and a robust dialogical witness to other faith communities.

Editorial Reviews

Choice
"Extraordinary. . . . Kärkkäinen's awareness of contemporary issues and vast learning make this volume a necessity for any scholar or Christian leader."

Peter Phan
—Georgetown University
"With awe and admiration readers of this comprehensive and lucid book will no doubt link its author's name with Thomas, Calvin, Barth, Moltmann, and other theological luminaries. After the completion of Kärkkäinen's five-volume project, theology will not be the same."
