Book cover of Telos: The Hope of Heaven Today by Leonard Sweet and Len WilsonTelos: The Hope of Heaven Today by Leonard Sweet and Len Wilson

Are we living through the beginning of the end?

The end has indeed begun – but it is not the special effects explosion many of us imagine. For too long, we’ve gotten the end wrong, which leads to poor decisions with dead-end consequences. To live a better Christian story, we need a better vision of the end.

Telos argues for a new way of looking at the end: as the culmination of God’s grand story. It introduces Jesus’ most important word in describing the end: the Greek word telos. Telos is the rhythm of human history; the presence of God; the plot, purpose, and completion of the story. The end is the kingdom of God, and the kingdom is here and now.
