Product Description

The fear of death is part of being human. Whether we chase immortality and longevity through symbolic means (procreation, adoption, activism, celebrity, "making a difference") or literal (healthy living, exercise)--time eventually catches up with us all. In this thought-provoking and encouraging book, Clay Jones urges the reader to embrace the true answer: Jesus, the "Resurrection and the Life."

Publisher's Description

Is There Life After Death?
 
For many, death is terrifying. We try to live as long as possible while hoping that science will soon find a way to allow us to live, if not forever, then at least a very long time.
 
Whether we deny our mortality though literal or symbolic immortality or try to turn death into something benign, our attempts fail us. But what if the real solution is not in denying death’s reality, but in acknowledging it while enjoying a hope for a wonderful forever?
 
Clay Jones, a professor of Christian apologetics, explores the ways people face death and how these "immortality projects" are unsuccessful, even destructive. Along the way, he points to the hope of the only true immortality available to all—the truth that God already offers a path to our hearts’ deepest longing: glorious resurrection to eternal life.

Editorial Reviews

"Honest, hard-hitting, unflinching—this book dares to tackle the uncomfortable topic of death but does so with creativity, wisdom, grace, and hope. You’ll cheer my friend Clay Jones for his insights, compassion, and wit. But most importantly, you’ll walk away grasping the only truth that can ultimately save you."
—Lee Strobel, bestselling author of The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith


"Immortal is exactly what I have come to expect from Clay Jones—insightful, well-researched, and convicting. This book is a game-changer for how Christians can think about the inevitability of death with both hope and biblical clarity. If every Christian would read this book and take its message to heart, it would transform how we relate to our nonbelieving friends and neighbors."
—Sean McDowell, PhD, Biola University professor, speaker, and author


"You should be dying to read this book. Actually, you’re dying regardless. That’s why Immortal could be one of the most important books you’ll ever read. After revealing the fascinating but ultimately futile ways modern people are trying to secure their immortality, Clay Jones brilliantly shows us what eternity will be like and how we can secure the glorious future that awaits us. But Immortal isn’t a book just about the eternity— it will help you live more fully right now. Highly recommended!"
—Frank Turek, DMin, coauthor of I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist


"This is an extraordinarily insightful book that I couldn’t put down. No matter what you believe happens after you die, this book will convict you that death is truly staring you in the face every day, and if you don’t confront that reality, you’re living in denial. But it will also convict you that if you confront death in Christ, there is nothing to fear—a perspective Christians often lose but desperately need. I love this book!"
—Natasha Crain, speaker and author of Keeping Your Kids on God’s Side and Talking with Your Kids About God


"If you are a Christian leader and you want to see those in your care get truly serious about their own faith and about spreading the gospel, Clay Jones has provided the perfect tool—Immortal. In this utterly convincing and engaging study, Jones pulls back the black curtain to reveal all the ways we attempt to suppress and avoid thinking about something that is more certain than birth and taxes—death. Clear thinking about death inevitably leads to clear thinking about sin and our desperate need for the Savior. Jones takes us down that path and leads us to the joy that comes from knowing that we have eternal life through the resurrected Son of God. Do everyone you know a great favor and get one of these books into their hands. It is accessible, transformative, and a source of immense hope."
—Craig Hazen, PhD, professor and director of Christian Apologetics, Biola University, and author of Fearless Prayer


"Immortal is a deeply insightful treatment of a phenomenon many people haven’t recognized: the immortality project. I believe Christian readers will find Jones’s book to be tremendously helpful, not only for self-examination and cultural understanding but also for thoughtful engagement with nonbelievers who are seeking meaning and purpose through such projects."
—Melissa Cain Travis, PhD, Houston Baptist University, author of Science and the Mind of the Maker


"In Immortal, Clay Jones examines our cultural interest in eternity and offers a reason why every Christian ought to celebrate the hope we have in the promises of God."
—J. Warner Wallace, Dateline-featured cold-case detective, author of Cold-Case Christianity and God’s Crime Scene and creator of the Case Makers Academy for Kids


"Thank God for Clay Jones’s declaration and affirmation of what God says about death and immortality. Very few people have the voice and clarity that Clay brings on a subject that can bring the greatest anxiety or the greatest peace. We get to choose! I am so excited that you have this book in your possession. Drink deep at this well of wisdom and insight and sense and feel your fear of death swallowed by truth and faith."
—Kenny Luck, leadership pastor, founder of Every Man Ministries, and author of Dangerous Good
