Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This unique volume focuses on the subjects of time in the area of theology known as "eschatology," the consideration of the fullness, the limit, and the goal of time. Westhelle's novel approach includes the role of place/space in eschatology alongside time. Considering one's spatial location in the understanding of time, he examines the influence of place and geographically-limited culture on eschatology and the contextual influence and limit culture has on one's understanding of eschatology. He traces the historical development of understandings of eschatology from the Bible to contemporary theology and adds his postcolonial/subaltern perspective. This is a fundamental reconsideration of what the theological categories of eschatology, apocalypse, and the end of time (both for the individual and the world in general) means in terms of biology, psychology, philosophy, sociology, politics, and geography.
