Visits to Heaven and Hell, Part Two

By Alan Gomes Jan. 28, 2015 9:00 a.m. Culture, New Testament, Theology, Historical Theology

This blog post is an excerpt from my forthcoming 40 Questions on Heaven and Hell. This book is part of Kregel Publisher’s “40 Questions” series, edited by Benjamin L. Merkle. Besides the issue treated in this blog post, my book will also deal with questions such as: Does the soul or spirit survive the death of the body? How could a God of love send people to an eternal hell? What is heaven like? What about infants who die? Are there animals in heaven? What are the new heavens and the new earth? How can we be happy in heaven if our unsaved loved ones are not there? And what will the resurrection body be like?

Mensajeros de Paz y Reconciliación

By Octavio Esqueda Jan. 20, 2015 9:00 a.m. Church Life, Culture, Ministry and Leadership, Missions

Las noticias a nuestro alrededor pueden ser bastante desalentadoras.
