The modern generation is so preoccupied with the affairs of the present that they have pushed the future out of their minds. Yet time is taking us all, at breakneck speed at times, towards certain but often ill-defined deadlines.

In "The Last Things," the author leads the reader on a study of these deadlines - death and dying, judgment, hell and heaven. Its goal is not speculation ("I think ...") or sentimentalism ("everything will be fine in the end"). On the contrary, he seeks to identify in biblical teaching what the truth of God is, and that in order to affirm it with clarity, simplicity and concretely for life in the world here below.

He writes with care and reflection and aims for a serious, sober but lively study of his subject. He also shows humility and sensitivity because, as a Christian, he is convinced that we should follow the Word of God where it leads us, but no further. These pages clarify our conception of the future. They also provide a perspective of renewed freshness and clarity about our life in the present.
