The Vision of The New Community

Public Ethics in the Light of Christian Eschatology


Lynn E. Mitchell Jr.

A major concern for Christian theology is the tension created by the «already» and «not yet» aspects of Christian eschatology. This study seeks to characterize the nature of that tension as it has been interpreted in the Biblical materials and in selected representatives of the history of Christian theology. The study then suggests the implications of eschatological tension for a Christian approach to a public ethic; i.e., an ethic for a pluralistic, natural community.
