Towards the Day after Tomorrow

Product Description
Humanity is moving ever towards its final destination without knowing why, when, where: teloi, multiple paths, leading towards God's eschaton. These essays examine the movement towards this day of reckoning, and how such eschatological events are projected back into time. Towards the Day after Tomorrow, or the one after that, or months, decades--centuries--away, often we behave as though the end is upon us. These essays start with the beginning of the end: the incarnation. We examine the origins of Karl Barth's realized eschatology in Expressionism. We consider death and judgment, as usurped by humanity, an eschaton without God's forgiving judgment: multiple Holocausts. War ushers in the eschaton, but how do Christians handle conflict in the light of a redefined just war theory? We analyze the eschatological insights into humanity's end in The Simpsons--post mortem. Consider the issue of atheistic human authorities usurping God's judgment. Finally crisis and judgment are glimpsed in the mindset of people who suffer seizures--postlapsarian exile, the sufferance of salvation: how God blesses us despite the chaos of our human-generated teloi, in preparation for the end. As the end approaches, events become darker, chaotic, confusion reigns: "Judas immediately went out. And it was night."
