Item Description...
Overview
Most contemporary Christians pull a blank when it comes to imagining a life with God after death. Although the Bible is largely silent on the issue, our world is completely riveted by the up-to-date visions of heaven and hell that stock bookstore shelves and are found everywhere on the Internet. But what are believers to think and to say about the "undiscovered country" that is the life to come- from the pulpit, at the hospital, or in our daily lives? Peter Hawkins offers a fresh way to pose these questions, along with an imaginative framework for answering them. He challanges all of us, not just preachers, to think of Dante's drama of the afterlife-heaven, hell and purgatory- as a true story describing the lives we are living now. To this end Hawkins uses the Divine Comedy to help us imagine what happens when we die as he works his way through Christian tradition, contemporary culture, a rich array of literature, and his own personal experience.

Why do most contemporary Christians pull a blank when it comes to imagining a life with God after death? Although the Bible is largely silent on the issue, our world is completely riveted by the up-to-date visions of heaven and hell that stock bookstore shelves and are found everywhere on the Internet.

Peter Hawkins offers a fresh way to pose these questions, along with an imaginative framework for answering them.
