Christian Reflection Issues > Heaven and Hell
Christian Reflection Issues > Heaven and Hell $2.99
Though caring deeply about heaven and hell may seem passT in our 'approved' culture, our "Touched By An Angel" popular culture is rampant with fascinating, self-serving forecasts about the boundaries of the world. We relentlessly twist heaven and hell into projections of our selfishness and limitless ambition, turning our hopes and fears into distorted caricatures of the Christian concepts. No wonder we are embarrassed to enter the popular fray.

Yet we should treat heaven and hell both carefully and seriously, for we are deeply shaped in our moral lives by what we hope for and what we fear. Our contributors offer thoughtful reflection to enrich our understanding of these transcendent realities, through articles, inspirational pieces, book reviews, an interview, Christian art, new hymns, and worship aids.

Christian Reflection is an ideal resource for discipleship training in the church.
