BURGER, C.W.. Did we look away too soon? New interest in the ascension and sessio of Jesus. Acta theol. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.2, pp.21-35. ISSN 2309-9089.

In the last decade, after years of neglect, quite a number of interesting books about the Ascension and Sessio of christ were published. One thinks especially about the contributions of Farrow, Dawson, Redding and Burgess. The aim of the article is to have a closer look at the publications, to ask for reasons for the new interest and to question progress in the discussion about the two themes evaluatively.

Keywords : Ascension; Sessio; Presence; Absence.
