David Wilkinson, pastor, astrophysicist and theologian, is convinced that the Christian hope is about resurrection and new creation. These two central ideas underlie debates about judgment, heaven and hell, environmental stewardship, near death experiences and the power of science to solve our future problems. At the level of the individual believer, one of the key issues of Christian faith is what to say in the face of death. In this book David examines popular conceptions about life after death before considering the question of reincarnation; the idea of the soul; what makes human different from animals, and from artificial intelligence; the link between mind and brain; animals and the afterlife; the death of the sun and the meaning of the Universe; the significance of the Resurrection of Christ; judgement, and the love of God.
David Wilkinson is the author of When I Pray What Does God Do? and several other books. He has has earned doctorates in both astrophysics and theology. He is principal of St John’s College Durham, England, a commentator on popular culture, and a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4's Thought for the Day.
