FROM THE BACK COVER
This book should be of interest to all who are mortal that is to all who will soon die in the months or years ahead. The short and limited existence of this life compels us to ask what is our fate after death?
The realities of life and death were well stated by the writers of the Scriptures:
- What man is he that lives and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? (Psalms 89:48)
- As for man his days are as grass: as a flower of the field so he flourishes.
For the wind passes over it and it is gone; and the place thereof shall be no more (Psalms 103:15)
- Wheareas you know not what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away (James 4:14).
These verses describe the truth of our mortal life. But Scripture also tells us of the doctrine of the resurrection of the dead. It is described as another life or rather a new life which is immortal. This is what some, but not all persons are destined to experience. The resurrection life is not a choice of man but is a gift and a promise of God brought about by the power of God.
This book also exposes some of the popular misconception on this subject such as the erroneous concepts regarding the nature of the resurrection body the location of where the resurection life will be the relation of the resurrection with the Kingdom of God and the true manner in which the coming of Christ applies and does not apply to the doctrine.
(Gives a different Scriptural interpretation and explanation of the "afterlife" than most books on this subject-ed.)
