By Matthew Levering
What occurs after dying to Jesus and to those that stick with him? Jesus and the death of Death deals a optimistic theology that seeks to reply to that very query, rigorously contemplating either Jesus' descent into hell and eventual resurrection as fundamental elements of a strong imaginative and prescient of the Christian physically resurrection. taking up the claims of N.T. Wright and Richard B. Hays, Matthew Levering attracts strongly upon the paintings of Thomas Aquinas to suggest a thorough reconstruction of Christian eschatological theology—one that takes heavily the profound ways that Christianity and its beatific imaginative and prescient were enriched by way of Platonic notion and emphasizes the position of the Church group within the passage from lifestyles to loss of life. In so doing, Levering underscores the desire in everlasting lifestyles for Jesus' fans and provides readers company and fruitful soil upon which to base conversations in regards to the Christian's future.
