Immortality, Death and the Hereafter: Exposing Mankind’s Most Enduring Deception About the Soul

by Shefflorn Ballantyne

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Have you ever wondered where you will go when you die?

Do you dream of the possibility of immortality?

DEATH IMMORTALITYHave you ever wondered about stories of visits from departed loved ones? About life after death, demons and angels?

Do you wonder what the bible says about mediums and those who claim to have special abilities to communicate with the dead?

Will sinners be burning for eternity? Or will they be annihilated?

This timely and easy-to-read book is designed to shed light on the mysteries of immortality, death and the destination of our departed loved ones. The biblically sound research into these subjects will stun you with a simple yet profound interpretation of claims of sightings of departed friends and families.

You may be struggling with the death of a parent, child or best friend and trying to make sense of their death. Or you may be familiar with the arguments of immortality and the soul and wish to finally see a truly biblical perspective on this subject. It may be that you are questioning your own philosophical position on the nature of the soul, immortality, torment and the nature of the resurrection found in the bible.

Whether you are a friend in grief or a bible scholar in need of answers on seemingly difficult questions on this subject, Immortality, Death and the Hereafter provides a well-reasoned and biblical path to a clear understanding of these issues.

Immortality, Death and the Hereafter helps you by:
• Outlining the real origin of the doctrine of the Immortality of the Soul
• Providing answer on what dying entails, the state of the dead and the resurrection
• Demystifying the myths of the soul, spirit and the appearances of departed loved ones
• Addressing bible statements of Jesus Christ and Paul on heaven, hell and torment
• Uncovering the mind of Satan versus the nature of God’s Love
• Presenting the biblical perspective on how the controversy between Jesus and Satan will climax
• Urging you to take action in occupying the only safe theological position in light of the coming Mark of the Beast.

This biblically correct book gives you an understanding of a truth that has been lost for thousands of years. It may challenge everything you believe about the dead and the ideas held by your own religion.

REVIEW

What I love about this book is that the author backs all his assertions up with Scripture. This is a thorough, in-depth study on immortality, death and the hereafter based on Scripture.

I agree with much but not necessarily all Shefflorn offers, yet really enjoy it when people write with passion and back up their convictions. The author looked at all angles and covered them well.

Highly recommend this book to anyone who is curious about what God’s Word really says about the after-life.

BLOG TOUR OF GLIMPSES OF LIGHT

This week I’m participating in a blog tour celebrating the publication of the Anthology ‘Glimpses of Light.’

The Anthology is traveling from blog to blog and just arrived from Lynne Stringer’s blog. Before this Charis Joy Jackson shared her thoughts on her experience as part of the anthology. You can read her post here. On the 24th of January the tour will continue and ‘Glimpses of Light’ will be featured on  Adele Jones’ blog.

The anthology Glimpses of Light is the brainchild of and compiled by Jeanette O’Hagan (Goodreads Author) (Author, Editor) and Nola Passmore (Author, Editor).

Book Description

Be challenged, captivated and moved by these imaginative reflections on faith, help in time of need, joy in the midst of tragedy, and surprising encounters with God.

During 2015, the International Year of Light, twenty-one authors from Australia and the United States have come together to explore the theme of ‘glimpses of light’—finding light in dark places—through short stories, poems, flash fiction and creative non-fiction.

Glimpses of Light includes contributions from respected and award-winning authors and poets Jo-Anne Berthelsen, Paula Vince, Lynne Stringer, Adele Jones, Jo Wanmer, Jeanette Grant-Thomson and Ellen Carr, as well as exciting new talent.

Excerpt 

Where are you from?
And where are you going?

The basket of chips sizzles as it descends into the hot oil. The shop owner looks sideways at Amelia. ‘Where are you from?’
Amelia tenses, thoughts flashing through her mind. She doesn’t want to be associated with where she’s lived for the last eight years and anyway, she sure as hell isn’t going back there. As far as she’s concerned that means she isn’t from there. She leans against the counter, her clenched hands resting in her khaki trouser pockets. She realises that she doesn’t know anymore where she’s from or where she belongs, but this isn’t the right answer.

Through the shop window she watches her two teenage daughters mucking around in the car. The lyrics of Limp Bizkit transmitted by the car radio fill the air in and around the shop whilst the car trailer with all their stuff is shaken by the children’s antics.
The shop owner follows her glance, continuing his inquisition, ‘Oh, you’re on holidays, are you?’
No, she isn’t. She smiles at him.

Finally he’s covering the chips with salt and wrapping them in layers of paper.
He now demands, ‘Where’re you going?’

She pulls her faded jacket tightly around her whilst wrinkling her freckled nose. She looks up at the ceiling. If only she knew where she was going. The one thing she knows for sure right now is that sh doesn’t know how to answer any of his questions. She has absolutely no idea where she’s going and certainly doesn’t need to be reminded of this.

This above excerpt is part of my contribution to the anthology.

My review

Glimpses of Light contains stories and poems of imagination and hope. I was stoked that my submission for this anthology was accepted and even more jazzed when I received my copy. I feel proud and humbled that my name appears next to well-established authors and grateful that I was allowed to contribute.

I enjoyed reading all the stories and poetry in the anthology but one in particular touched my heart. It is called Window Seat and was written by Ellen Carr. I found her words warm and comforting despite the hopelessness conveyed.

What struck me most about Ellen’s poetry was not what was said, but the power and holiness of the unspoken in her writing.

Jeanette O’Hagan enjoys writing fiction, poetry, blogging and editing. She is writing her Akrad’s Legacy Series—a Young Adult secondary world fantasy fiction with adventure, courtly intrigue and romantic elements. Her short stories and poems are published in Tied in Pink romance anthology, Another Time Another Place, Poetica Christi’s Inner Child, FAWQ’s Brio anthology, Let the Sea Roar, Glimpses of Light and Like a Girl Plan anthology.

Jeanette has practised medicine, studied communication, history, theology and, more recently, a Master’s in writing. She has lived in Australia and Africa. She loves reading, painting, travel, catching up for coffee with friends, pondering the meaning of life and communicating God’s great love. She lives in Brisbane with her husband and children.

Glimpses of Light is a wonderful gift idea and available as a kindle or a paperback. You can find ‘Glimpses of Light’ on Amazon by clicking this link.
