Building on his much acclaimed study "Ascension and Ecclesia", Douglas Farrow extends the line of thought and presents it to a wider audience. "Ascension Theology" places the doctrine of the ascension in the context of the biblical narrative of descent and ascent, in order to shed light on 'the upward call of God in Christ Jesus' and on the eucharistic community that hears and answers that call. It is a book for the Church as well as the academy. "Asension theology" also offers a contemporary account of the Eucharist itself. It addresses the relation of the heavenly session of Christ to the conflicting currents of the present age, and the transformation to the life of the world to come. Specialist and non-specialist alike will find much to ponder in its traditional yet controversial claims.
"'Expressed with a clarity that comes from years of careful thinking through the issues involved, Ascension Theology is an absolutely first-rate addition to the body of Catholic systematics' - Aidan Nichols, O.P., Blackfriars"
