Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"As a brief introduction to the eschatology of the Bible, this book has no equal. O'Callaghan gives attention not only to the exegesis of the biblical texts, but also to the understanding of these texts in the Fathers of the Church, and to the discussion of these issues in both ancient and contemporary writers. The result is an exceptionally rich theological feast that informs and edifies."--Donald A. Hagner, George Eldon Ladd Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

"With so many developments and discussions in the field of eschatology, it is past time for a new handbook. As an active participant in those discussions, O'Callaghan is the ideal author for such a book. Carefully researched, clearly written, and profoundly synthesized, this book offers many useful insights over a broad range of topics for scholars and students alike."--Scott Hahn, Pope Benedict XVI Chair of Biblical Theology and Liturgical Proclamation, St. Vincent Seminary

"Christ Our Hope provides a comprehensive and concise overview of the major issues of eschatology. It is in the best tradition of `handbooks' providing the reader with judicious and well-structured presentations on the major eschatological questions. Its clarity should appeal to anyone seriously interested in the subject."--Matthew L. Lamb, Professor of Theology, Ave Maria University

"An astute and competent account of the Catholic theological and magisterial tradition on eschatology. O'Callaghan is very much at the service of what Catholic faith articulates as the Christian hope."--Ralph Del Colle, Associate Professor of Theology, Marquette University

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a well-researched, comprehensive book on eschatology. Written as a textbook, this book fails to deliver a captivating, emotional aspect that draws the reader in. Overall, this book addresses all aspects of eschatology nicely.
