|About the Book|
Death—no other word invokes in our minds such feelings of ultimate loss, finality, and even fear—but what is death? To many people death is merely the cessation of life, the natural end of all physical organisms. To those who embrace the naturalist’s philosophy concerning the origin of life, that is the most logical answer. Natural forces, they say, created our life, and natural forces will reclaim that life. To those who embrace evolution, there is no hereafter, no reincarnation, no resurrection of life, we merely die and cease to exist. On the other hand, many billions of the inhabitants of this earth believe that there is something beyond the grave to which all earthly life is transfigured. While there are thousands of variations of beliefs, this book examines death using the only time tested and reliable source of information we have—the Bible. From God’s Word we can find the answers to these and other questions: What is death? Why is there death? What happens after death? Is there any hope for eternal happiness beyond the grave?
