Death and the future are by their very nature mysterious. Many people tend to avoid serious discussion or thought on the subject of death, yet every person knows that in the normal course of events, sooner or later, death will happen. Nothing is more certain about life than the fact of death—all human history and experience point to that conclusion. This volume deals with the issue of life after death, not out of fear of the future, but from a natural, God-given desire to enter into the larger life and destiny which we instinctively feel is ahead. Immortality is divided into three sections: one each on physical death, immortality, and the intermediate state. Along the way, Boettner writes on biblical terminology—such as Sheol and Hades—purgatory, soul sleep, and much more. He also weaves numerous Scripture references and commentary from Reformed theologians into his narrative.

About Loraine Boettner

Loraine Boettner was born in 1901 in Linden, Missouri. He studied agriculture at the University of Missouri, but graduated with a B.S. after transferring to Tarkio Presbyterian College. In 1925, Boettner began his studies at Princeton, where he was influenced by the writings of Charles Hodge. He graduated from Princeton Theological Seminary with a Th.B. in 1928 and a Th.M. in 1929.
