The Logic of Eternal Joy

Jerry L. Walls

The Christian doctrine of heaven has been a moral source of enormous power in western culture. Recently, however, that doctrine has lost much of its grip on the western imagination and has become a vague and largely ignored part of the Christian creed. Walls argues that the doctrine of heaven is ripe for reconsideration and that we profoundly need to recover the hope of heaven in order to recover our very humanity.
