Overview

No happier phrase was ever coined than the last sentence of the Nicene Creed. ... The life of the world to come is above all and before all the true life of this world made eternal, immortal, carried to its highest potentialities. The difficulty lies in discernment between the true and illusory life, between the abnormal yearnings of a fallen nature and the steady aspirations of the sound spirit in man. -Dom Anscar Vonier

In The Life of the World to Come Abbot Vonier presents the Catholic understanding of eternal life as the greatest expectation of the Christian soul, and the completion of every perfection, both of spirit and body.

Along with a clear and beautiful exposition of the nature of life in heaven and the soul's union with God, Vonier answers many of the most pressing difficulties Christians find in coming to terms spiritually with the goodness of eternal life: How can we be content knowing that some souls are lost? Does the human personality disappear when it receives a new life? Can a changeless life really be joyful?

Consistently beautiful and illuminating, The Life of the World to Come is one of the great theological meditations on heaven written in our time.
