This book is unique in its treatment of the very important subject of the immortality of the human soul. It is uncommonly comprehensive. For it presents the testimony of Holy Scripture - the Old and New Testaments - the testimony of the sacred arts of Orthodox iconography and hymnography and that of the Eastern Church Fathers, as well as philosoco-theological arguments and relevant experiences contained in the Lives of Saints and other writings of the Orthodox Church.
The presentation in this significant book is well-organised, concise, clear, and lively. Its reasoning has been characterised by the reader of the manuscript as "gem-like and incisive, supported by thoughtfully-chosen and well-written passages."
Enhancing the text are many photographs of icons of traditional iconography showing holy personages who are closely related to the texts.
