What kind of life is the afterlife? How does that afterlife affect our lives here on earth? How do our lives here on earth affect our future lives after death? Rev. Frank S. Rose offers his own reflections on Emanuel Swedenborg s remarkable book, Heaven and Hell. Using everyday examples and conversational language, Rose takes the main topics from the sixty-three chapters of Heaven and Hell and demonstrates how these concepts relate to our lives right now. He helps us picture life in heaven and life in hell, and he shows how we are continually building a spiritual home and lifestyle inside of us - one that we will fully awaken to after death.
