The Christian Doctrine of Immortality


T&T Clark 1897

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


These six lectures were delivered by Stewart D.F. Salmond in Edinburgh as part of the Cunningham Lectures series. As Salmond states in the introduction, “The present inquiry limits itself to the question, what is the witness of Scripture on the subject? The words of Christ are to me the highest authority, beyond which I seek no other.” Salmond’s essays cover the apostolic doctrine, the Pauline doctrine, Christ’s teaching, the Old Testament, and more.

Praise for the Print Edition

As it now stands, the volume is by far the most elaborate and valuable treatise that has yet appeared on the vital doctrine which it so fully and convincingly presents. The Christian Church owes Prof. Salmond an incalculable debt for such a discussion of such a theme.
