Coming to Christ provides a retrieval of the traditional Christian doctrine of eternal life through scripture and the history of theological reflection, while presenting the liturgy as primary theology since it addresses God directly. It traces back to Neanderthal man the reality of human hope that looks beyond death and demands final expression in eternal communion with God.

Cummings has provided an overview of the Christian hope from which much can spring in the future-eschatologically speaking, that is!" The Sixteenth Century Journal, Vol. Xxxi, No. 2 Summer 2000
