"Carl Braaten has written an interesting book applying the eschatological perspective to different dimensions of the Christian faith, of the life of the church, and of Christian ethics. His extremely readable style leads to profound insight. I particularly like the chapter on the ministry and the wisdom of his reflections on ethical questions."
Wolfhart Pannenberg, University of Munich
"More than any other theologian today, Braaten successfully relates biblical faith and ethics to the whole spectrum of urgent current concerns."
Richard H. Hiers, Dept. of Religion, University of Florida
"Braaten rightly insists that the church has lost its eschatological 'bite,' and he does much toward recovering that loss."
Gerhard O. Forde, Luther Theological Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota
"This book continues Braaten's persistent effort to interpret vital human concerns by the promise that the Lord lives."
Robert W. Jenson, Lutheran Theological Seminary, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
