From the Publisher
Many worthy writers, from Tyndale onwards, have expressed their profound dissatisfaction with traditional orthodox ideas concerning "the immortality of the soul" and "the eternal torment of the wicked". Such Platonic and pagan views were imbibed into Catholicism yet despite the reasoned statementsn and forthright confessions of a wide range of writers over many centuries, these Catholic views are still firmly entrenched in the hearts and minds of Christians today. The author present a clear and concise view of the subject, giving definitions from the Bible for 'soul' and 'spirit' and other terms, and considering related subjects and commenting helpfully on a wide variety of texts.
