A Fuller Hope

Many people assume without  question that the final Christian hope is to leave this wicked world of space, time and matter and to go off, as disembodied souls, into heaven‟. That is fine as a statement of what happens to God‟s people immediately after they die, but it won’t do as an account of the great scriptural promises of new creation. There is a further, fuller hope, for a new world in which we shall have new bodies and new tasks to perform, celebrating and implementing God‟s victory over evil, injustice and death itself. –N.T.
