B 11 New Heavens, New Earth: The Biblical Picture of Christian Hope (1999)

When we die, what happens next? The subject of immortality and of the nature of the Christian future hope remains of huge importance. And yet popular belief, as shown in conversations, hymnody and preaching, is often strangely at odds with the New Testament.

This refreshing study combines a wide understanding of the New Testament with remarkable clarity of expression. It sweeps away misconceptions and offers a vivid picture of the New Testament hope of immortality.
