Ascension Deficit Disorder: Youth MInistry as a Laboratory for Hope by Kenda Creasy Dean

"[Christians] do not merely live under the promise, which could be said of all men [and women]. They live in and with and by the promise. Tthey seie it. They apprehend it. They conform themselves to it. And therefore in their present life they live as those who belong to the future."

Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics IV, p. 120
