NT Wright explains his view on the New Testament’s description of what happens after our physical death. Directly objects to a “Left Behind” doctrine, and proposes that perhaps our final destination isn’t Heaven at all, it’s a renewed planet. That we may go to Heaven after we die, but only for a holding period until restoration of the Earth is fulfilled.

May cause us to re:think how we preach, teach and communicate our theology.

Hannah and I are currently reading his book, Surprised By Hope, which deals more fully with his position, his review of early Christian thought on such things, etc. One thing in the opening few chapters that intrigued us was his take on the connection between our theological view of future hope and our current practice (or not) of redemptive work.
