If you've ever wondered if your dogs, cats, and other pets will be in heaven, then Father Jack's Will I See My Dog in Heaven? will help you explore your natural curiosity. While he admits that no one really knows exactly what God has in mind for the next life, he explores the Scriptures, Christian tradition, liturgy, and St. Francis of Assisi's teachings to introduce evidence that God desires all creatures in the afterlife. At long last, a response to an often asked, universal question. Paperback.
A Universal Question, thoughtfully answered! What do you think: Will we see our dogs and cats in the hereafter? Does God's plan for eternity include the created nonhuman world? Franciscan friar and popular writer Father Jack Wintz brings a love for all creation and infectious enthusiasm to the serious task of exploring answers to these long-asked questions, In Will I See My Dog in Heaven? Father Jack admits that no one really knows what God has in mind for us in the next life. But in ten thoughtful chapters, he lines up evidence from the Scriptures, Christian tradition and liturgy, and the life and teachings of St. Francis of Assisi, that God desires all creatures (yes, including our beloved pets!) in the afterlife.
