This popular question-and-answer format makes it easy to find answers to specific questions on heaven, hell, the intermediate state, the final judgment, and life in eternity. Readers will find solid answers to many vital questions: • What should we conclude about those who claim to have seen heaven or hell? • Is it possible for us to communicate with the dead? • Is there such a place as purgatory? • What will our resurrected bodies be like? • What will we do in the eternal state? • Will there be animals in the eternal state? • What is hell like? • How can a God of love send people to an eternal hell? • Did Jesus “descend into hell” like the Apostles’ Creed says? Study notes point to additional resources for learning, and reflection questions at the end of each chapter make the book ideal for small-group studies. “This is simply an outstanding analysis of crucial and often difficult questions. .  .  . Alan Gomes has produced a discussion that is exceptionally clear, thoughtful, carefully reasoned, fair to opposing views, and relentlessly faithful to Scripture. I expect to turn to it again and again.” —Wayne Grudem, research professor of theology and biblical studies, Phoenix Seminary “A lot of us, even Christians, have non-Christian views of heaven and hell. Drawing on many years of teaching theology, Alan Gomes grounds his answers in Scripture. This is a superb resource!” —Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California “40 Questions About Heaven and Hell is a masterpiece. It exhibits fairness, rigor, deep theological acumen, and biblical fidelity. Gomes has given us a treasure trove of information. . . . It is a must-read.” —J. P.
