Are you finding all the talk about heaven and hell confusing? Most popular perceptions of the afterlife are actually a jumble of bedtime stories, folk religion, and wishful thinking. The Bible is clear and filled with a better hope than the cliches we cherish. In What's the Truth About Heaven and Hell, Douglas Jacoby provides a user-friendly survey of Bible texts and a level-headed critique of church tradition, current scholarship, and popular books. The truth will leave you with confidence in the face of death, comfort in times of grief, and hope when life doesn't seem to make sense.
