This chapter is the text of an unpublished 1980 college Evensong sermon on what kind of heaven is the subject of Christian hope, in response to Robert Mugabe's claim that in Christianity material things don't matter. The sermon founds on what happened to be the text for a reading at Evensong that day, linked to verses in the same Pauline epistle that are foundational for the teaching of the Second Vatican Council on the relation between good works in this world and their transfigured existence in Christ's completed kingdom.
