Abstract:

What is the point of such a small book on such a large subject? The question is both fair and accurate. Books much larger than the present one have been written on single aspects of the great subject attempted here, and it might seem to be nothing more than an exercise in compression to try to restrict the inquiry within these narrow confines. It is in some compensation for this that the objective has been limited to an attempt to summarize what Scripture reveals about the life to come. The Bible has a "sure and certain hope" to set before us, and when it uses the word "hope" it characteristically means something of whose occurrence there is not the slightest doubt. We sorely need to recapture this hope today. Even professing Christian people are uncertain and uneasy in face of death, and the professing Christian Church, reviving the practice of prayers for the dead and of "requiem communions", seems to have lost the certainty that believers are eternally secure in Christ. And not only so, but all of us, in daily life and relationships, lack that evident touch of the supernatural upon our lives which, to a large extent, comes through a confident grasp upon the eternal dimensions of Christian assurance. - Author's preface.
