Approaching the End

Eschatological Reflections on Church, Politics, and Life
$19.99
($24.00)
In this book Stanley Hauerwas explores the significance of eschatological reflection for helping the church negotiate the contemporary world.In Part One, "Theological Matters," Hauerwas directly addresses his understanding of the eschatological character of the Christian faith. In Part Two, "Church and Politics," he deals with the political reality of the church in light of the end, addressing such issues as the divided character of the church, the imperative of Christian unity, and the necessary practice of sacrifice.
