One Minute After You Dieby Erwin W Lutzer
Synopses & Reviews
Many people spend more time planning a trip to Europe than they do preparing for their eternal homes. We are bombarded with suggestions concerning what awaits us when we cross the line from life to death. Is it as Betty Eadie claims, an eternal existence of peaceful and loving acceptance? Or could it be as Shirley MacLaine insists, simply reincarnation - a transfer from one body to another? We need not play this guessing game, wondering what will greet us on the other side - the Bible tells us that we can know for sure. For some, it will be a beautiful existence of eternal bliss; for others, an everlasting experience of pain and torment. And there will ever be a great gulf fixed between the two. The only question that remains is . . .which side will you be on?In One Minute After You Die Dr. Lutzer clearly enunciates what the Bible has to say about the life beyond. With biblical descriptions of the splendor of heaven and the horrors of hell, he authoritatively dispels fears for those who have placed their trust in Jesus Christ and presents the dread necessity for those who have yet to believe. Many who read it will be comforted; others will be disturbed; and everyone will be instructed. Each day is one step closer to eternity. Are you ready?
"One minute after you die you will either be elated or terrified. And it will be too late to reroute your travel plans."
Death comes to all, and yet death is not the end. For some, death is the beginning of unending bliss, for others, unending despair. In this latest edition of the bestselling book One Minute After You Die, Pastor Erwin W. Lutzer weighs the Bible's words on life after death. He considers:
· Channeling, reincarnation, and near-death experiences
· What heaven and hell will be like
· The justice of eternal punishment
· Trusting in God's providence
· Preparing for your own final moment
Though the afterlife is shrouded in mystery, the Bible does peel back the curtain. Dr. Lutzer will help you understand what is on the other side.
May the reality of eternity quicken and comfort you today.
One minute after you die, you will either be elated or terrified-and it will be too late to reroute your travel plans.
When you slip behind the parted curtain, your life will not be over. Rather, it will be just beginning-in a place of unimaginable bliss or indescribable gloom. One Minute After You Die opens a window on eternity with a simple and moving explanation of what the Bible teaches about death.
Bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges readers to study what the Bible says on this critical subject, bringing a biblical and pastoral perspective to such issues as:
