Intersection - Dead Reckoning: Eschatology and Ethics

Dr. Brent Waters

Dead Reckoning:  Eschatology and Ethics

This lecture charts a trajectory for the Christian moral life between what Dr. Waters calls “the poles of anticipatory remembrance and imaginative restlessness.”

Influenced by pastoral theologian and faculty colleague Dr. David Hogue and his book, Remembering the Future, Imagining the Past, Waters examines the relationship between eschatology and ethics by likening the Christian moral life to the ancient mariners and early pilots who, when unequipped with charts and instrumentation, employed what is known as “dead reckoning.”
