The Hope of the Christian

Regular price $9.95 USD
Regular price Sale price $9.95 USD
Christians declare their ultimate hope in two words: eternal life. What is eternal life? How does hope in eternal life relate to the challenges we face? Does hope for eternal life devalue our world or distract us from responsibility for the world we shape? And why hope, precisely? What is hoping? Why do we hope in God? An intellectually honest Christian does not ponder these questions out of idle curiosity. Without hope in eternal life our future is, ultimately, only death, and death puts into question the meaning of life, of whom we are now and what we are about in our history. In giving an account of their hope, Christians proclaim the Gospel anew and let their light shine for others.
