Christianity, like other world religions, surprisingly acknowledges the existence of a plurality of human messiahs. In this comparative work, philosopher Jad Hatem examines Mormonism’s Three Nephites, Buddhism’s Bodhisattva, and Islam’s Mahdi; distinctive messianic figures who postpone Heaven, sacrificially prolonging their lives for the benefit of humankind.

About the Author:

Jad Hatem is a professor of philosophy, literature, and religion at St Joseph s University in Beirut, Lebanon, where he has taught since 1976. He has served as the chair of the philosophy department at the university, as also the director of the Centre d etudes Michel Henry. He is the author of dozens of books. Among his most recent publications are Quie est la vérité? (Hermann, 2012), L Amour comme puissance et comme vérité (Éditions du Cygne, 2012), and Un bruit d avoir été (Orizons, 2014). The translator Dr. Jonathon Penny is a published poet and scholar of letters, whose work examines the intersection of theology and literature in surprising ways and places. He has taught at universities in the United States, Canada, and the Middle East.

Review:

"Jad Hatem has a detailed knowledge of Mormon doctrine ranging from the Book of Mormon, and Pearl of Great Price, to Bruce R. McConkie, and Orson Scott Card. Beyond this, he brings in-depth knowledge of Islam and Buddhism. Remarkable. Postponing Heaven’s purpose is not to be motivational or even to necessarily promote belief in any of these teachings, though, those who see the connections, may be inspired by what they learn. This is definitely a high-octane read." — Charles Inouye, professor of Japanese literature and visual culture, specialist in comparative religion, Tufts University
