What Are We Hoping For? New Testament Images; Daniel J. Harrington
Condition: Very good, edges bumped.
Scripture scholar and author, Daniel J. Harrington, SJ, explores fifteen images of hope in each of the following: Matthew's Gospel, Paul's Letter to the Romans, and the Book of Revelation. Chosen because they are among the longest, most influential, and most difficult texts of the New Testament, these three very different books begin with the hope that the newborn Jesus will be Emmanuel, God with us and end with the plea, Come, Lord Jesus.
Harrington, editor of Liturgical Press ' best-selling Sacra Pagina series, writes this book not so much for biblical specialists as for the general public. The author's popular and prayerful approach considers forty-five images of hope 'from star, water, and rock through childbirth, body, and house to scroll, woman, and beast.
In an age when hope seems to be in short supply, here is a book that will give fresh insight and energy to all who wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
