"Redeeming Time "addresses the temporal imbalance and disorientation that is widely reported in the post-industrial West. The essay evolves by analyzing the philosophical and aesthetic contexts, first of our own experience of time, then of the Judaic context within which the Gospels developed, and finally of the Gospels themselves. In this way, Chilton interprets the visions of eternity in Israel's Scriptures and in the New Testament that healed the breaches of time in their own epochs and still have the power to do so in ours.

Throughout his career, he as been active in the pastoral ministry of the Anglican Church and is presently Rector of the Church of St. John the Evangelist.

Review:

"There is no one better than Father Chilton at penetrating the fog and the mists which intervene between our own culture and that of the first century of the Common Era. In this subtle and sophisticated investigation of the similar but different calendars of early Christianity and rabbinic Judaism he shows how the two traditions created for themselves different but complementary notions of time and eternity."
--Reverend Andrew Greeley, University of Chicago and the University of Arizona

"In Redeeming Time, Bruce Chilton offers a reflection on time in Judaism and Christianity that is both erudite and elegant."
--Walter Wink, Auburn Theological Seminary -- Review
