- Publisher La Due offers an evenhanded and accessible survey of the history of theological thought related to eschatology. He begins with the witness to the idea of eschatology in the Bible and then traces its early development from the early Church councils to the late nineteenth century. He devotes the next chapters to a consideration of various twentieth century New Testament theologians and systematic theologians. Included are Bultmann, Tillich, Rahner, Kung, Pannenberg, Moltmann, Hick, Cone, Ruether, and Elizabeth Johnson. In a day when the Left Behind series has focused everyone's attention on the end times, La Due's measured voice provides us with a wonderful guide to how we have come to this point.
