Publisher's Description

The meaning of life is found beyond life.


Overview


We usually avoid talk of our own mortality. Author Tim Jones observes that Americans, with hospitals and funeral homes to shield them from death s inevitable presence, find it easy to sidestep that eventuality. But Christian faith teaches us that the meaning of our lives will be found beyond life and that death leads, for the believer, to something better than life. This study looks at how we should view death our own death even as we live, and what difference that view should make in the way we live today.
