When we see God, are we looking with our physical eyes or with the mind's eye? Both, says Hans Boersma in this sacramental and historical treatment of the beatific vision. Focusing on "vision" as a living metaphor, Boersma shows how the vision of God is accessible already today.


Seeing God is a historical study, but it also includes a dogmatic articulation of key characteristics that contribute to our understanding of the beatific vision. Theologians, philosophers, and literary authors have long maintained that the invisible God becomes visible to us. Boersma shows how God trains us to see his character by transforming our eyes and minds, highlighting continuity from this world to the next. Christ-centered, sacramental, and ecumenical in character, Seeing God presents life as a pilgrimage to see the face of God in the hereafter.
