Eschatological Preaching: Imitating the Tension, Movement and Hope of the Gospel
2020 Calvin Symposium on Worship | Workshop
In 2009, Thomas Long lamented that the pulpit has grown silent on matters of eschatology. This workshop addressed preachers who hoped to remedy that silence by developing a theological structure for preaching that imitates the tension, movement, and hopeful trajectory of the gospel. Participants came to see that eschatology was not an optional add-on to preaching the gospel, nor is it simply an isolated doctrine to be taught; rather, eschatological hope is intrinsic to the gospel message itself.
