Quick Overview

This book examines all the issues surrounding the departure of the soul from the body up until life following Christ’s Second Coming.  It looks at how the soul is separated from the body by death, and how human identity is preserved after this separation.  The delicate subject of why some infants die is considered in the light of what the Fathers have written on this subject. There is also a balanced consideration of what the soul encounters immediately after death – the ‘customs houses’.  The resurrection of bodies, the events of the Judgment, what is meant by the eternal Kingdom of God and what we must do in order to enjoy it are all covered.  For those interested in more theological background there are chapters on why the Church does not believe in purgatorial fire or that Hell will eventually be abolished.  This is a book that offers both knowledge and consolation, and should be read by everyone who is concerned about the death of those close to them and their own.  It demonstrates that by living within the Church, through life in Christ, man can experience the Kingdom of God from this the present life and overcome death.

It has been widely observed that great interest is being shown today in the life after death. Naturally this is connected with the so-called existential questions arising in everyone, especially in the young people. They ask such questions as: What am I, what is the meaning of life, where am I going after I die, is there life after the soul leaves the body, and so forth.
Of course, not only our contemporaries but, in general, people of all times and races have been concerned with these questions. Philosophers are characteristically concerned with the origin of life, the existence of the soul, the entrance of evil into the world, and death. Thus while these topics appear to be contemporary, they have always occupied man's spirit.
