The State of the Blessed Dead


Anson D. F. Randolph & Company 1890

We all die. Some view death as a thing to be feared; some see it as the end. The question Alford asks is this: what happens when we die? As he closely examines the Scriptures, he brings his readers with him, using the Bible as the basis for his conclusions on one of the most important questions that we all must eventually face both in our own lives and the lives of those we love.
