Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802863159, Paperback)

Much current theology is content with modernity's assertion that human experience is the true measure of time. Yet a distinctively Christian theology moves beyond that proposal and holds to a more sophisticated idea of time - that both the individual and the world are works in progress, and neither will be settled until established in relationship with God. This substantive new work by Douglas Knight confronts the central trends of modern thought with this ongoing progress, the "eschatological economy" of the Christian tradition. Throughout "The Eschatological Economy" Knight links Christian doctrine to an awareness of both being and becoming, and he gives pride of place to the work of God in the world through creation, Israel, and the cross. An ambitious and unique approach to systematic theology, Knight's "Eschatological Economy" presents an invigorating discussion of Israel, of the atonement and the Trinity, and of the ultimate fulfillment of this world.
