The "Four Lasts Things" of the book's title refers to Death, Judgment, Hell, and Heaven. This, the 21st volume of the "101 Questions" series, covers a similar topic to the ninth volume: "Responses to 101 Questions on Death and Eternal Life" by Peter Phan (see my review) and although this book does not assume the reader is familiar with the previous book, reading Mr. Phan's book first would be useful.

"101 Questions and Answers on the Four Last Things" by Joseph T. Kelley deals with specific theological ideas and takes a more acedemic approach. Also, the division of the topics into chapters clashes with the more stream-of-consciousness Q&A format. Dr. Kelley overcomes these difficulties by arranging the questions in a logical progression so as to achieve unity from start to finish; and, despite the academic tone, the responses are highly intelligible (the glossary at the end is also helpful).

Despite the fact that this series has lost its more conversational tone. Dr. Kelley's respect for both the subject and his audience makes this a refreshing and enlightening read.

I found this book enjoyable to read based upon a number of factors. First, the topic is of the utmost importance. Secondly, the information was very well laid-out and organized. Thirdly this book was vey informative, summarizing the core beliefs of the Catholic faith on these issue. The information of ths book was referred primarily upon the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Pope John Paul II's Wednesday audience's of the Last Things along with other authoritative sources. Lastly, this book was easy to read, answering the most important questions on the subject matter. This book was informative with the meaning not being lost in lengthy explainations. A must read for the subject matter.
