Beyond the Tomb


James L. Fleming 2005

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


From the Preface: This is the door into a storehouse of truth that deals with a vital subject. I hope that every reader will find some treasures “new and old.” The most interesting of all subjects should be “Man, his Nature and Destiny.”

The Bible is the only book that clearly reveals our nature and unlocks the mysteries of eternity. It lifts the curtain and gives us a look beyond the tomb. In this work I have appealed directly to its authentic testimony and endeavored to present facts. I have tried to be fair with those who hold opposite views. Their honesty and sincerity I do not question. All Iask is a careful perusal with unbiased mind. Let us reason together, that we may as certain the truth. Whatever the future holds in store for us will not long be a question, for very soon all of us will experience its solemn realities. The subject of this book is of eternal moment to every human being. May our readers imbibe the spirit of deep interest and pleasure that the writer has enjoyed in its preparation.—Herbert McClellan Riggle
