Acerca de


"[Thiel] suggests that the key lies in the theology of forgiveness and that forgiveness is directly related to sanctity, especially to that sanctity to which Vatican II says all are called. He has thus struck theological and spiritual gold: this history of salvation is the history of God's forgiveness of his people." --Cistercian Studies "[Thiel's] theological writing has always combined poise and a sense of urgency, and this intricately argued treatise on eternal life is no exception. . . . Thiel's book . . . raises questions about the role of the imagination in theology, and especially in eschatology. His emphasis throughout is on 'imagining' the last things. But he ends up proposing ways to 'think' or 'speak' about these things as often as he proposes ways to imagine them. . . . [O]ne can only be grateful to Thiel for a book that stirs us from our dogmatic slumbers about the world to come." --Commonweal "Icons of Hope, John Thiel's creative effort to explore Christian belief in eternal life, is clearly the work of a major theological thinker. . . . While highly speculative, Thiel's vision is both imaginative and deeply Catholic. His fascinating analysis of Catholic and Protestant artistic representations of the Last Judgment--by artists like Federico Zuccari, Giotto di Bondone, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Lucas Cranach the Younger and Albrecht Durer--enriches his narrative." --America "The theological community owes Thiel a debt of gratitude for bringing eschatology back into our consciousness. His 'thick' description of the afterlife will surely provoke a lively discussion. I recommend it to graduate seminars in eschatology and contemporary Catholic theology." "Icons of Hope is a bold foray into imagining the 'last things.' At once innovative and probative, this latest text from John Thiel argues on pastoral grounds the necessity for imagination to represent the unrepresentable other side of death. Not to imagine is to make an entire swathe of beliefs merely notional and thus effectively put them out of circulation. Among its many contributions, Icons of Hope helps breathe new life into an old topic, and its reimagining of the heavenly life of the blessed dead makes an indelible contribution." --Cyril O'Regan, The Catherine F. Huisking Chair in Theology, University of Notre Dame "This book is a theological rarity in recent theology: a wonderfully imaginative, well and clearly argued, 'thick eschatology' about such 'last things' as judgment day, the communion of saints, the Beatific Vision, and particular judgment. Grounded in what Thiel calls a 'noncompetitive spirituality, ' these reflections on a 'Pauline sensibility in its Catholic style' make an important and stimulating ecumenical conversation partner." --David Kelsey, Luther A. Weigle Professor Emeritus of Theology, Yale University "This is a deeply felt, intelligent book that dares to argue for a 'thick' description of the eschatological future. Read it and understand the power of premodern doctrinal symbols such as purgatory and Last Judgment to unlock new meaning when probed with a postmodern imagination. Forgiveness is the key. Thiel serves up the spirit and practice of forgiveness in compelling ways as central to resurrected life here and hereafter. In its movement from the grand to the most subtle nuances of hope, this is a most important theological work." --Elizabeth A. Johnson, C.S.J., Distinguished Professor of Theology, Fordham University
