There is no shortage of books on
eschatology ? the study of ‘the last things’ and ‘the end times’. Many arise out
of incoherent or superficial readings of the Bible that detract from the ‘once
and for all’ achievements of God through the death and re
of the Lord Jesus. Others fail to consider the manner in which God reveals
himself through the Lord Jesus and by the power of his Spirit. Too many fail to
distinguish sufficiently between the genuine hope provided by the gospel and the
superficial aspirations of culture.
David Hohne offers a trinitarian theological description of eschatology that is at once systematic, generated from the theological interpretation of Scripture, and yet sensitive to essential elements for Christian practice. His reading of the Bible is shaped by the gospel, informed by the history of Christian thought, and dedicated to serving the church in a world that is frustrated by sin, death and evil, yet longing for the return of our Lord and Messiah.
