Providing unique perspectives drawn from Russian Orthodox sources not easily found in the Western world, this book explores questions regarding the nature of God's existence and the immortality of the human soul. It includes many examples of the awareness of life after death and argues that the expectation of a future life and faith in God form the foundation of a well-ordered life.

Author: Steven Rosen
Like taxes, death is inevitable. Everyone experiences it sooner or later. This book offers perspectives on death and dying from all major religions, written by experts in each of those religions. Focusing on the major world traditions, it offers important information about what death and dying means to those practicing these faiths. The second part of the book adds a necessary and truly unique perspective - a personal look at how people actually die in the various world religions, as told by a hospital chaplain, with anecdotes and experiences that bring the death process to life, so to speak. Each chapter engages the theology of each religion, giving quotes from the literature of their respective scriptural traditions, to explain the process of dying, death, and the afterlife. In doing so, each author draws on the history of his respective tradition and looks at real-life figures, exemplars of the tradition, showing how practitioners view death and hope to one day engage the death process themselves.

A deeply personal take on the mystery of what lies beyond death When he was 23 years old, Dale Allison almost died in a car accident. As a result of this experience, his ideas about death and the hereafter changed dramatically. In Night Comes Allison wrestles with big questions concerning the last things -- What happens to us after we die? Why does death so often terrify us? Armed with his acknowledged expertise in historical, theological, and biblical scholarship, Allison offers an engaging, personal exploration of such themes as death and fear, resurrection and judgment, and hell and heaven, discussing all these in light of modern science, Scripture, the history of doctrine, and his own experience. As he ponders, explains, criticizes, and creatively imagines -- engaging throughout with biblical texts, church fathers, rabbinic scholars, poets, and philosophers -- Allison offers fascinating fare that will captivate many a reader's heart and soul.

From the moment that Tsars as well as hierarchs realized that having their subjects go to confession could make them better citizens as well as better Christians, the sacrament of penance in the Russian empire became a political tool, a devotional exercise, a means of education, and a literary genre. It defined who was Orthodox, and who was 'other.' First encouraging Russian subjects to participate in confession to improve them and to integrate them into a reforming Church and State, authorities then turned to confession to integrate converts of other nationalities. But the sacrament was not only something that state and religious authorities sought to impose on an unwilling populace. Confession could provide an opportunity for carefully crafted complaint. What state and church authorities initially imagined as a way of controlling an unruly population could be used by the same population as a way of telling their own story, or simply getting time off to attend to their inner lives. Good for the Souls brings Russia into the rich scholarly and popular literature on confession, penance, discipline, and gender in the modern world, and in doing so opens a key window onto church, state, and society. It draws on state laws, Synodal decrees, archives, manuscript repositories, clerical guides, sermons, saints' lives, works of literature, and visual depictions of the sacrament in those books and on church iconostases. Russia, Ukraine, and Orthodox Christianity emerge both as part of the European, transatlantic religious continuum-and, in crucial ways, distinct from it.

The Mormon Church is the fourth largest church in the US. Though organized in 1830, and with a current worldwide membership of over thirteen million and annual growth rate of about three hundred thousand, it is without a doubt the least well-understood major church. Surveys show the public has good feelings and respect for members, but ignorance and even animosity toward the Church's beliefs and history. This timely book addresses ignorance, misunderstanding, and misinformation, providing a clear, factual, and comprehensive picture. It deals candidly with the issues and questions people are asking, with solid, documented reasons and facts. The hope is to increase tolerance, respect and good feelings. We may not see things the same way, but we can at least try to understand and respect each other. The book is in two parts, with different levels of detail, for different levels of interests, and easy reading. Walt Scott, a fifth generation Mormon, has twelve ancestors who crossed the planes. One joined the new church in 1837, seven years after it was organized. This book benefits from that legacy and the author's lifelong experiences in leadership and teaching. He has degrees in electrical engineering and management from George Washington University and MIT (Sloan Fellow). Walt, a "pioneer" himself, was part of a small team that built several of the U.S.'s first satellites, forerunners of today's GPS systems. He joined NASA at its inception, becoming a division director at age 34 (protocol rank of one star general). He was co-founder of a company that pioneered methods for early identification of leadership talent. When PC's were first introduced, he became a self-trained consultant. Later, he and his son designed and managed the construction of modular homes, a technology that was quite new when they began. Walt has served four times as a Bishop's Counselor, twice on Stake High Councils, and in numerous teaching assignments. He and his wife, June Langston Scott, have been married for fifty-three years and have six children, nineteen grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. From that group and their spouses, there have been twelve who have served fulltime missions for the Church, with another preparing to leave shortly, and more anticipating that experience. They have served in New York, Texas, England, France, Russia, Chile, Uruguay, Brazil and Taiwan.
