Title

Eschatology and hope

Publication Date

2006

Abstract

This text offers an introduction to the central theme of Christian eschatology, the doctrine and study of what Christian's hope for as they follow the Way taught by the prophets and saints and, above all, opened up in the paschal mystery of Jesus of Nazareth.
Hoping for life after death, a sage once said, is not a particularly "religious" action. Here, Anthony Kelly examines the concept of hope in general and how eschatology enlarges the scope of what human's anticipate in ways that transcend mere continuation of life after life. Kelly helps the reader see that Christian hope involves much more than hope for personal immortality.
