Overview

If you’ve ever felt challenged as a Christian to say what you believe about life after death, you will find intelligent proposals here. Fr. Grogan’s deep knowledge of the current scholarship on subjects like judgment, heaven, hell and purgatory is matched by his skill at clearly presenting insights through stories and examples.

This book begins with the idea that every inhabitant of this planet contributes to the shaping of God’s project – the life of the world to come – and it emphasizes that the relationships between God and ourselves endure eternally. Rooting everything in this sense of ongoing relationship, Grogan poses and responds to questions such as:
 Could hell be empty?
• Can knowledge of the future transform the present?
• What will it be like to be fully alive?
• What will we do in heaven?

He also makes a clear call to engage with God now in transforming our present relationships, so that everyone may become more truly/fully alive. This is the Christian gift to the world.
