A Brief Book Notice from Books At a Glance

By Fred Zaspel


It’s a question every pastor has heard: Will we recognize one another in heaven? I’ve never seen a book given to answering this question – until now. Hodge argues that the common assumption that life after death will be a continuation of life on earth is well-founded, and he uncovers evidence from every possible corner of the Bible and theological deduction. I don’t know of anyone who has thought through the question so thoroughly – with reference both to the intermediate state and the final (resurrection) state – and I was really quite impressed with much of Hodge’s work. Indeed, you may not have considered how so many of those passages that inform our doctrine of continued conscious existence after death bear on this question also.
