Eschatology : Death and Eternal Life, Paperback / softback Book

Eschatology : Death and Eternal Life Paperback / softback

Description

First published in English in 1988, Joseph Ratzinger's ""Eschatology"" remains internationally recognized as a leading text on the ""last things"" - heaven and hell, purgatory and judgment, death and the immortality of the soul.

This highly anticipated second edition includes a new preface by Joseph Ratzinger/Pope Benedict XVI and a supplement to the bibliography by theologian Peter A.

Casarella. ""Eschatology"" presents a balanced perspective of the doctrine at the center of Christian belief - the Church's faith in eternal life.

Recognizing the task of contemporary eschatology as ""to marry perspectives, so that person and community, present and future, are seen in their unity,"" Joseph Ratzinger brings together recent emphasis on the theology of hope for the future with more traditional elements of the doctrine.

His book has proven to be as timeless as it is timely.
