With these robust words popular author N. T. Wright challenges current liturgy and practice surrounding All Saints' and All Souls' Days, and sets out to clarify our thinking about what Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory are, what it means to pray for the dead, and what (and who) the saints are. He suggests biblical ways to celebrate the lives of those who have gone before us.
"In challenging the existence of an eternal soul and questioning the traditional view of heaven, Wright is taking a more biblical approach than most of his more liberal contemporaries,"---The Times (U.K.).

"We have been drifting into a muddle and a mess, putting together bits and pieces of traditions, ideas and practices in the hope that they will make sense. They don't. There may be times when a typical Anglican fudge is a pleasant, chewy sort of thing, but this isn't one of them. It's time to think and speak clearly and act decisively."
With these robust words Tom Wright, Bishop of Durham, throws down a challenge to current liturgy and practice surrounding All Saints' and All Souls' Days, and sets out to clarify our thinking about what happens to people after they die. Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory, what it means to pray for the dead, what (and who) are the saints, are all addressed in this invigorating and rigorously argued book.
