What happens when we die? This question invariably confronts everyone. Yet, as Ironside shows in these three addresses, Christians respond differently—and less fearfully—than non-Christians to the question. Ironside surveys the New Testament in search of answers, and finds that in the absence of God, death constitutes a hapless void at best—but more likely the afterlife is filled with eternal punishment. He devotes his final address to the existence of the body and soul in the afterlife.
Harry Allen Ironside, one of the twentieth century’s greatest preachers, was born in Toronto, Canada on October 14, 1876. Though his education stopped with grammar school, his fondness for reading and a retentive memory put his learning to use. His scholarship was recognized in academic circles when he received honorary degrees from Wheaton College and Bob Jones University and was invited as frequent lecturer at Dallas Theological Seminary. Dr. Ironside was appointed to the boards of numerous Bible institutes, seminaries, and Christian organizations. He also served as director of the Africa Inland Mission. Ironside preached widely throughout the United States and abroad. He served as pastor of Moody Memorial Church from 1930 to 1948, and during his lifetime, he preached more than 7,000 sermons to over 1.25 million listeners.
