By Ephraim Radner
In A Time to Keep Ephraim Radner revalues mortality, reclaiming it as God’s personal. Mortality may still not be resisted but received. Radner unearths mortality’s real nature as a present, God’s present, and therefore unearths that the various obstacles that mortality imposes could be celebrated. Radner demonstrates how faithfulness—and no longer resignation, break out, denial, redefinition, or excess—is the correct reaction to the present of humanity’s temporal problem. To dwell rightly is to acknowledge after which willingly settle for life’s barriers.
In chapters on intercourse and sexuality, singleness and relations, schooling and vocation, and a panoply of finish of existence concerns, A Time to Keep plumbs the depths of the secular imagination, uncovering the constant struggle with human finitude in its myriad forms. Radner indicates that by wrongly positioning creaturely mortality, those components of human event have received an insufficient reckoning. A Time to Keep retrieves the main easy confession of the Christian religion, that lifestyles is God’s, which Radner bargains as grace, as the foundation for a Christian knowing of human life sure by way of its starting place and telos. The possibility and purpose of what comes among beginning and death is ordered by the trend of Scripture, but is performed faithfully only in obedience to the limits that bind it.
