Abstract

This chapter engages two interrelated aspects of Paul Fiddes's thought, namely his ideas on the futurity of God and his engagement with literature. The first part of the chapter sketches a constructive account of Christian eschatology in dialogue with Fiddes, emphasizing the implications of eschatology for our (always future) knowledge of God and self, and asking to what extent futurity can be predicated of God himself. The second part responds to Fiddes's choice to formulate his eschatological thought in dialogue with literature, and tests the relevance of literary form (particularly drama) to the theological concerns at hand.
