Love and Eschatology

Jeanrond, Werner LU (2011) In Dialog: A Journal of Theology 50(1). p.53-62
Abstract
P>This article reflects on the connection between Christian hope for salvation and Christian praxis today. Following a discussion of Christian approaches to hope, salvation, and reconciliation, the eschatological potential of love is explored in conversation with significant theologies of love in Western Christianity. It is argued that love, properly understood, offers the most adequate and dynamic horizon for approaching God's coming reign and for being transformed in the process.
