“Understanding the Afterlife,” second edition released

This book is a new effort to analyze and harmonize all the scriptures dealing with the various aspects of the afterlife. After several years of prayerful study and consultation the author presents a unified picture of what has happened, is happening, and will happen at death. He also discusses the second coming and the resurrection, bringing eschatology into the realm of common understanding.

In this book the author strives to prove beyond a reasonable doubt the following:

1) The story of the rich man and Lazarus is a parable.

2) The story of the sheep and the goats is a parable and those who are separated are only those who are alive at the second coming.

3) The Greek word for Hades has two meanings in the New Testament. In the Gospels it is equal to Hell, elsewhere it refers to Sheol, the place of the dead before the resurrection of Christ.

4) When Christ was in Hades, Acts 2:31, He was preaching to the dead, 1 Peter 3?:19, 4?;6 and John 5:25. This visit was not giving them a “second” chance.  It was their first chance to hear the Gospel of Christ.

The author also offers clarifying information on the meaning of Paradise, Tartarus and who are the dead mentioned in Revelation 20:12 as well as how Hades can be thrown into Hell in Revelation 20:14.

With the possible exception of some of the details of the Greek language, all this material is easily understood and is very comforting to all of us as we realize the temporary nature of this life.
