About the book:

The hopes by which the modern West has lived are widely understood to have failed. At the outset of the third millennium we see the ideology of historical progress for what it is  a myth that can no longer provide humanity with grounds for true hope. The threat of worldwide ecological disaster, for example, shows that attempts to master history and create the future have led not to confidence but the opposite: a deep suspicion and fear of what is to come. / In the face of the failure of secular hope, Richard Bauckham and Trevor Hart present a way forward  a radical faith in a future for the world that is in Gods hands. Looking at images from the Bible and Christian tradition, including the antichrist, the last judgment, and the kingdom of God, Hope Against Hope reinterprets eschatological hope for todays Christians.
