Or we find ourselves passively waiting for God&'s future, Avoiding both of these traps, Essential Eschatology gets to the heart of the matter by examining how the Christian hope and practice of resurrection affects Christian mission and everyday life.

This creates within the world a unique community hope. Essential Eschatology explores Christian hope in relation to
  • the failure of the modernism
  • living in the midst of empire
  • the resurrection and judgment
