Description


This book presents an ecumenically sensitive explanation of the Catholic doctrine of purgatory. By recognizing that all Christians must answer the question about what happens to imperfect Christians at death, it is able to put the doctrine of purgatory in dialogue with other Christian responses to this question. The work of evangelical theologian Miroslav Volf is particularly helpful in this regard as his theology of the judgment is elegant, comprehensive and well-grounded in the broader Christian tradition and in Scripture. While there has been considerable disagreement and even polemics among Christian denominations on topic of purgatory and the afterlife, this reading resource suggests that there are significant possibilities for agreement and rapprochement. Highlights: -Aaddresses topic of purgatory ecumenically -Presents historical development and biblical basis -Reading resource accessible to both academics and general audience -Provides a good overview of Catholic understanding on this topic -Utilizes the work and insights of evangelical theologian Miroslav Volf -Review questions end each chapter -Bibliography for further reading -Resource for undergraduate or graduate courses on eschatology.
