Eternal Blessedness For All from the Author: Anette I. Hagan. Eternal Blessedness for All?' is work shows how the acclaimed father of modern theology, Friedrich Schleiermacher, brilliantly approached this problem. It took many twists and turns of historical and philosophically minded analyses, however, for him to get to a theologically appropriate answer. is book unpacks those efforts in manageable form, based on a close examination of a pivotal 1819 essay, 'On the Doctrine of Election'; his masterpiece, 'Christian Faith'; sermons; and other related sources. Schleiermacher was the first modern theologian of stature to endorse the universal restoration of all humanity. Th is study also displays the historical, ecumenical, and doctrinal contexts in which his views were fashioned.
