What Dare We Hope? by Mr Gerhard Sauter

Book Description

In this volume, Professor Sauter challenges the kind of eschatology he describes as a "theology of history," forcefully represented by Wolfhart Pannenberg and Jurgen Moltmann. He brings this "theology of history" into conversation with: (1) Albert Schweitzer's "Konsequente Eschatologie," that is, eschatology that can only be understood as expectation of imminent events, and (2) "radical eschatology," which deals with the foundation of Christian hope or with why we are allowed to hope in the first place. Drawing upon the reformers' (Luther/Calvin) understanding of the biblical term "promise," he defines the task of eschatology as establishing the relationship between justification and hope as well as the relationship between God's promise and our future. All Christians are called to "give an account of the hope which is in you" (1 Pet. 3:15). Is this "hope" simply within us or among us? To interpret thoroughly this sentence from all perspectives would be enough of an assignment for eschatology. To lead readers toward this task and to introduce them to eschatology's basic questions and related intellectual experiences of theology is the intention of this book. Contents 1.The Term "Eschatology" and Its Changing Nature 2.Jesus of Nazareth, "Bearer of Hope"? 3.The Activity of God in Humanity and Its History 4.The God of Hope The Power (Dynamics?) of the Future 5.One in Hope? Ecumenical Perspectives 6.Hope in the Life of the Churches 7.Basic Questions of Eschatology Gerhard Sauter if Professor of Systematic Theology and Director of the Ecumenical Institute at the University of Bonn. He has taught in the United States at Duke University and Princeton Theological Seminary and is the author of The Question of Meaning: A Theological and Philosophical Orientation and Eschatological Rationality: Theological Issues in Focus.

Books By Author Mr Gerhard Sauter

Protestant Theology at the Crossroads by Mr Gerhard Sauter Protestant Theology at the Crossroads, Paperback (June 2007)

Examines contextual theology, in which particular cultural heritages, race and gender, and economic conditions and the structure of social life inform the teachings of the faith rather than vice versa. This title argues that dogmatics can and should be used as the tool to save theology. It is intended for theology students.

Gateways to Dogmatics by Mr Gerhard Sauter Gateways to Dogmatics, Paperback (May 2003)

This challenging introduction to the tradition and practice of Christian dogmatics tells why reasoning theologically still is decisive for the life of the church. Sauter introduces readers to the various approaches to dogmatics and points out what is essential in a complete, meaningful Christian theology.
