Product Description

A compendium of biblical insights on the world of tomorrow and the hope to come

We live today in a world whose problems far surpass our ability to manage them. Social unrest and growing intolerance at home, terrorism abroad, worldwide simmering ecological and financial crises - the changes escalating on this planet point to a daunting future. What we desperately need is hope.

Hope is what the Bible offers. From Genesis to Revelation, it points toward God's coming kingdom beyond the sufferings and injustices of this present age. "The essays in this book provide an overview of 'the blessed hope' among the people of God," writes Timothy George in the foreward, "beginning with the Bible continuing through the many challenges, reversals, and revivals of this hope in the course of Christian history."

The twenty-eight contributors to Eschatology: Biblical, Historical, and Practical Approaches communicate biblical perspectives on what the future holds for the world and the followers of Christ. In four parts it explores:
  • The Doctrine of the Future and Its Foundations
  • The Doctrine of the Future in the Bible
  • The Doctrine of the Future in the History of Christian Thought
  • The Doctrine of the Future and Christian Ministry
For Bible students and readers who desire a deeper biblical understanding of the future, this book offers a multifaceted view of both the challenges and the promise that lie before us.

    There is an old saying, "You can't judge a book by its cover..." and this is true with Eschatology: Biblical, Historical, and Practical Approaches. When I ordered this book, it was on the basis of the subtitle with consideration to the words biblical, historical, and practical. While I found this book informative, I did not find it biblical, historical, or practical. I will qualify my findings based on the subjective definition of all those words.

    Eschatology by Bingham is one side of a box. The Christian tradition is rich and diverse as is the Jewish tradition from which Christianity is derived. When I considered "biblical" and "historical," I was expecting a thorough treatment of the subject of Eschatology, which is defined as "The part of theology concerned with death, judgment, and the final destiny of the soul and of humankind." I suppose I did get treatment on the subject, but it was very narrowly defined and almost exclusively from one perspective and tradition and that being Protestant and Reformed. While this was not totally unexpected, it was rather disappointing considering again the subtitle. I was hoping for a more inclusive and expansive treatment of the subject. As such, the material was presented in such a way that an unsuspecting reader might assume the dispensational view of biblical "final things" is the only way to understand and interpret the Scriptures.

    It was my hope that the presentation of material would be more comprehensive and delivered in an objective manner, allowing the reader to make an informed decision on what theory they might understand as "more practical." Unfortunately, this is/was not the case.

    In fairness, the material, narrowly defined as it might be, was presented well. I appreciated the essay format with multiple authors. Likewise, I appreciated the effort and attempt at including a historical perspective although as a church history buff I noticed immediately how exclusionary the material actually was.
