The Christian Hope: A Study in the Doctrine of Immortality


Charles Scribner’s Sons 1919

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In this study of the doctrine of immortality, William Adams Brown frames his discussion around the Christian hope of eternal life. He defines the nature of hope, explains its origins and antecedents, traces its history, and shows its relation to other versions of hope which have preceded or accompanied it. Consider the different forms hope has assumed at different periods in Christian history. Explore the reasons many have abandoned this hope in modern times—and analyze the substitutes which have been proposed to replace it. William Adams Brown’s study will help you understand the basis of Christian hope, the need which it answers, and encourage you to maintain hope in a cynical world.
