These days it is a bit of a joke to think of heaven and hell as real places, and the devil as a real person. Many people only ever visualize the devil and hell in cartoon forms: burning flames, sulphurous smoke and a little red guy with horns and a pointy tail poking people in the butt with his pronged pitchfork.
But how can we be sure that heaven and hell are things to be made fun of rather than things to be taken deadly seriously? How does anyone know what happens after you die? How can you ever be sure of what’s next?
In this Little Black Book, Scott Petty looks at why we can trust what Jesus says about eternal life, what Jesus actually says about it, and what Jesus will do to bring it about. If you’re looking for a short book to help you think about life after death, this is it.
A new series of books that get straight to the point on the topics that Christians always have questions about. Not too big, not too fancy, and not at all boring. LBBs are ideal for young Christians (ages 14-20+), but speak biblical truths applicable to any age range.
Scott is the youth minister at Christ Church St Ives in Sydney, and loves the tricky questions young people ask about the Christian journey. He also loves his beautiful wife, Carolyn, his three energetic sons, racing bicycles, Italian coffee, food in general, rock‘n’roll and Apple computers, probably in that order.
