Many people are intrigued by what lies beyond death's door, but we live in an age bombarded with many conflicting views. How can we be sure of what is true? In this eye-opening study you'll examine the Bible's answers about death and what comes next. As you confront the inevitability of death in the context of the promise of heaven and the reality of hell, you will be challenged to examine your heart - and in doing so, find that, in grabbing hold of the hope of eternal life, the sting of death is replaced with peace. 6 sessions.

Karen5 Stars Out Of 5Heaven, Hell and Life After DeathJanuary 12, 2015KarenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Anyone familiar with Precepts study techniques will be comfortable with this method of text marking for emphasis and insight. It's not for everyone, but also is optional and not required to answer the discussion questions. Our Sunday school class (mostly couples 50-70 years old) is currently using this book and have found it to be interesting, provoking both questions and lively discussion. Most appreciate not having "homework", though some choose to work ahead and come to class prepared.

If I were writing this review completely based on the overall topic and content covered I would rate this study 5 stars. There are many misconceptions about this topic and there is a great need for a study that provides an in-depth look at what the scriptures say about it. I also love that it's a 40 Minute Weekly Study session that can be done as a group together....with no homework.
Throughout this book, there is a unique's study style that is taught. In reviewing Scriptures the reader is to draw symbols above keywords that represent the key topics of either God, heaven, death, or our perspective in the story. At first this was a very interesting technique because it helps you read the scripture with much more focus and allows you to dissect it more thoroughly. But by the time you get to Week Three in the study and you've repeated this exercise on nearly every page, it becomes quite tiresome and sometimes babyish. The question that is also repeated over and over is what did you learn from marking or drawing these symbols over the words. I found that I didn't always "learn something" from this exercise, especially when it was a verse that was already familiar to me. By the middle of the book I stopped drawing all the symbols. It just became too distracting. Based on the repetitiveness of some of the questions, "what did I learn "? and the monotonous study technique, I would rate this study 3 stars. If you average out the 5 star content and the 3 star study technique, I came to average overall rating of 4 stars.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Blogging For Books program from WaterBrook Multnomah in exchange for this fair and unbiased review.
