Omhels jou sterflikheid en leer werklik leef

Todd Billings is die Gordon H. Girod Navorsingsprofessor van Gereformeerde teologie by die Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan. Hy is ‘n geordende predikant van die Reformed Church in America en die outeur van verskeie publikasies. Billings leef met veelvuldige myeloma, ‘n ongeneeslike vorm van bloedkanker. In ‘n onderhoud met die Calvin Institute of Christian Worship gesels hy oor sy nuwe boek, The End of the Christian Life: How Embracing Our Mortality Frees Us to Truly Live.

In die onderhoud sê Todd onder meer:

The End of the Christian Life doesn’t focus on my cancer story per se. Rather, it’s on a broader topic: what does Christian hope look like if we embrace our mortal limits, whether we are 15, 50, or 95? I’m immersed in the cancer community, where (someone) dying has become an everyday experience. That immersion is a gift to the book. But the book itself has a much larger scope and will definitely interest people who have not experienced cancer or serious illness. The book is ultimately a biblical and theological exploration of what resurrection hope means. Its cultural analysis helps unveil the cultural idols that lead us away from true resurrection hope.
