Life After Death explores the great mystery of what happens to us when we die and argues for the bodily resurrection of traditional Christianity. We live in a secular world organized to drive out of our minds all hope in a future life and all expectation of a new and renewed world, an ideology that makes death alone seem real and life just one meaningless task after ather. We can succumb to this ideology or we can defy the world and place all our hope in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. We can declare ourselves members of an Easter people, building a future that will last forever, living in the belief that what we do w has everlasting significance and importance, and that the most mundane tasks are of eternal value. We can live as though death is behind us and that w, in our moments of joy, we are tasting something of a new world where God is all in all.
