After Lives

A Guide to Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory

John Casey

A survey of ideas on death, immortality, the Afterlive, sin, retribution, goodness and salvation, this book draws on philosophical and literary material from Ancient Egypt, Greece, Judaism, Islam, Christianity, and modern and secular work. As well as giving information and deploying arguments, Casey suggests a way of thinking and feeling, for ideas of heaven and hell raise questions about how we should understand the ultimate nature of sin, justice, punishment, and our moral sense itself.
