In After We Die, philosopher Stephen T. Davis subjects one of Christianitys key beliefsthat Christians not only will survive death but also will enjoy bodily resurrectionto searching philosophical analysis. Facing each critique squarely, Davis contends that traditional, historic belief about the eschatological future is philosophically defensible.
Davis examines personal extinction, reincarnation, and immortality of the soul. By juxtaposing two systems of salvationreincarnation/karma and resurrection/graceDavis explores the Christian claim that humans will be raised from the dead, as well as the radical Christian assertions of Jesus resurrection, ascension, and long-anticipated return. Davis finally addresses Christian thinking about heaven, hell, and purgatory.
The philosophical defense of Christianitys core beliefs enables Davis to render a reasonable answer to the eternal question of what happens to us after we die. After We Die is essential reading for teachers and students of philosophy, theology, and Bible, as well as anyone interested in a reasoned analysis of historic Christian faith, particularly as it pertains to the inevitable end of each and every human being.
Daviss After We Die is extremely well written, up-to-date, and full of interesting arguments, dealt with in a systematic way.
A very effective and well-argued personal vision of.the afterlife
After We Die demonstrates that even the most minimal attempt to explain resurrection runs into logical snares and theological conundrums. Davis is scrupulous about noting difficulties and ingenious in offering possible solutions. I heartily commend his efforts to any preacher or teacher called upon to explain resurrection.
