The Battle for the Soul: A Comparative Analysis in an Age of Doubt

by R. Crawford
     
 
Do we all possess a soul? If so, what is it? Can it be defined? Crawford argues that it is important that we have a soul because if it is immortal then we can hope for life after death. But some religions insist that it is the resurrection of the body which is vital.
