The start of the twenty-first century evokes fresh concern for what the future holds. Will it bring an end to suffering and evil? Can we look for a new heaven and earth? Will judgment be cosmic or personal? Hope against Hope revisits these and other questions central to Christian eschatology and provides a fresh yet responsible look at the church's vision of the future.^Integrating images from the Bible and Christian tradition with analysis of contemporary Western culture, Richard Bauckham and Trevor Hart reinterpret the meaning of such eschatological themes as the antichrist, the last judgment, and the kingdom of God in terms that will benefit students and general readers alike.
Reinterprets eschatological hope for today's Christians, looking at images from the Bible & Christian tradition including the Antichrist, the Last Judgment, & the Kingdom of God.
