(p.128) Chapter 5 To Envision the Future
The Christian Consumer

Laura M. Hartman

Oxford University Press

When Christians consider consumption, they often do so by reference to an eschatological vision of a fulfilled world. Though there is considerable diversity within Christianity regarding the fate of this world, Christian insights into God's will for the future may still inform sound consumption decisions. This chapter examines two practices, Sabbath keeping and the Eucharist, for their insights into both eschatology and Christian consumption. The work of Ched Myers, Norman Wirzba, Marva Dawn, Wendell Berry, Seventh-day Adventist scholars, and Eastern Orthodox theologian Sergei Bulgakov are featured in this chapter.

Keywords:   Eschatology, Sabbath, Eucharist, Wirzba, Norman, Myers, Ched, Dawn, Marva, Berry, Wendell, Bulgakov, Sergei, Seventh-day Adventist, Eastern Orthodox
