Contents The open-ended nature of history -- The conquest of death by Jesus Christ : real time for living -- The proper role of the Holy Spirit : ecstatic gift of divine communion -- The positive character of my death as assumed by Christ's death : perspectives on death in contemporary theology -- Death as sharing in the admirable exchange of natures in the person of Jesus Christ.
Summary This book presents a significant repudiation of the traditional eschatological doctrines, both Catholic and Protestant, based on the key idea that human death, as a dying into the death of Christ, is to be construed positively as a salvific event that confers the plenitude of life to the human. Offering helpful critiques of selected contemporary theologians, Novello explores how the proposed theology of death has liturgical and pastoral implications for Christian faith and praxis.
