內容簡介 Anxiety and fear are the feelings people often have about Christ's second coming and what will happen to the world. In the last two hundred years there have been new teachings about end times rising up among Christians that have created this atmosphere of fear and uncertainty.In contrast to these trends, Eric M. Vail explores in Eschatology the classic beliefs of Christianity by taking readers into Scripture and the teaching of the apostles. Readers will examine God's intentions for creation across the biblical narrative and consider how God works to fulfill those intentions. Vail brings Christianity's historic beliefs about the future of the world into focus. Ultimately, God is faithful and will bring creation into the fullness of what God has intended from the beginning.
