Through the work of Christ on the cross, God is about the business of eliminating from creation all disorder and corruption, the bitter fruit of sin. How will he bring that process to its final, glorious completion? What will take place when Jesus returns? What are the different perspectives on this question? On a more practical level, does what you believe about the end of the world really make any difference in your daily life? Absolutely! Eschatology may be the doctrine of last things, but it can significantly influence how you live right now, affecting how you respond to tests and trials and forming the nature of your hope as a Christian.
