What awaits us after death? Flora Wuellner brings her deep wisdom and a lifetime of study, reflection, observation, and spiritual direction to shed light on what Jesus revealed about eternal life. Her writing offers hope and comfort to those who might be troubled by mixed messages about the afterlife from church or who are simply wounded from misunderstandings on the subject. Each chapter opens with a quotation from Jesus and develops the implications of those words, and closes with a guided meditation.

This book is vintage Flora Wuellner, revealing notes of profound wisdom and practical guidance for the discerning reader. Writing from the perspective and experience of a well-seasoned pastor, Flora braves terrain many theologically trained ministers avoid addressing. She invites both the intellectual skeptic and the spiritually timid to a more spacious, gracious vision of the realm beyond death. The result is an invigorating, hope-filled vision of the deeper continuity and integration between this life and the next.
