Very accessible, deeply grounded in Scripture, pastorally helpful, and sensitive to that most democratic of all institutions--death. What a real gem of a book.
Archbishop of York
With his characteristically firm grasp of sources ancient and contemporary and with admirable clarity, Anthony Thiselton guides the reader through the complexities of such vexed biblical themes as hell, the final judgment, the return of Christ, and the resurrection of the dead--giving us a book that is not only theologically profound but also pastorally encouraging.
-Thomas G. Long,
author of Accompany Them with Singing--The Christian Funeral
Thiselton draws on a lifetime's study of Scripture, doctrine, philosophy, and the nature of language to construct a Christian theology of the last things. Immensely learned and rich in Christian wisdom, this book has much to offer all students of the Christian faith.
