Surely no subject has captured the attention of men and women like that of death and the life beyond. Millions have sought with Job to know “if a man die, shall he live again?” (Job 14:14). And if there is a future state, what is its nature? How best may mortal men and women prepare for it? Indeed, death has ever remained life’s most awesome mystery. In this book, representatives of several Christian groups address the topics of death and what lies beyond death from the vantage of their particular religious traditions.
