Product Description

Why is the physical death necessary? How do spirits spend their time? What kind of communication is possible between the mortal world and the spirit world? When does the judgment occur? What are family relationships like in the resurrection? Since the beginning of time, people have sought answers to questions about our next sphere of existence. In Understanding Death and the Resurrection, Jay and Don Parry carefully examine many such questions, using the writings of prophets ancient and modern to provide answers.

Understanding Death and the Resurrection
By , Submitted on 2016-06-27

I was apprehensive about the topic of death, especially when a loved one passed; but this book will put me at ease. Basically death is another birth. And I really appreciated reading about life in the Spirit World? Parry and Parry have a knack for locating obscure statements and stories about life in the Spirit World. And I really loved the chapter on types of the Resurrection. Makes perfect sense.
