''The portrayal of heaven and hell is one of the great literary themes of Western literature, and is a subject that should be of high-priority interest to every Christian. . . . Markos writes with his usual insightfulness, and he again does what he does best--serves as an engaging travel guide through this chosen body of literature.''
--Leland Ryken, Wheaton College
''We have been given a rich theological, philosophical, and literary overview of the themes of heaven, hell, and the permanent things so often neglected in literary studies. We gladly salute Louis Markos on this marvelous contribution and trust it will receive the wide readership it deserves.''
--David S. Dockery, Union University
''Lou Markos has pulled off quite an accomplishment. He has managed to meaningfully explore the perennial (and perennially challenging!) issue of heaven and hell. . . . For readers looking for a contemporary Virgil to guide them through these classic texts--as they touch on an important issue--look no further. Take up and read.''
--Brad Green, Union University
''Lou Markos is not only an engaging speaker and a vital educator, but he is also an insightful thinker and writer. Heaven and Hell
is an important book on a topic that has been much discussed in Christian circles in the last five years. Markos does the important task of defending orthodoxy with wit and without rancor.''
--J. M. N. Reynolds, Houston Baptist University --Wipf and Stock Publishers
