Robert Banks’ CV and Bibliography
-Publisher.

Examines the seminal contributions of Australian Robert Banks in the areas of ecclesiology and the theology of everyday life
-Publisher

This is the next book in the Task of Theology Today series. It examines the issues of evil and the end of time (theodicy and eschatology). This is done from various perspectives, including biblical (both Old and New Testament), scientific, philosophical, theological, and historical (within the patrsitics -- from the perspective of the early church Fathers). By means of eschatology, Christian faith offers to a broken world a recovery from evil. The heart of the Christian faith is the mediating eschatology of the incarnation. Eschatology functions as messianic promise for the world, not above the world. The difference between apocalyptic and eschatology is that the former offers a determinate content to particular messianic promises. Apocalyptic thus functions as a horizon, in contrast to eschatology, which is not in itself a horizon but is always the instrument of disruption for discerning a horizon. Contributors include Bob Russell, Mark O'Brien, OP, Christiaan Mostert, David Neville, Dorothy Lee.
