Active Modes of Eternal Life

  • James Kellenberger
Chapter

Abstract

As there are possible modes of eternal life with an interior focus, so there are possible modes of eternal life with an exterior focus. The division between interior modes and exterior modes corresponds to what St. Francis de Sales calls the ‘two principal exercises of our love towards God, the one affective, the other effective, or … active.’1 Exterior modes may be characterized, using the descriptive phrase that Hick applies to active saintliness, as having a ‘practical engagement in social or political action.’
