What is the Bible's viewpoint? Without delving into an endless stream of what man has said, Andrews looks at what the Bible says about death and the like. Why do we grow old and die? What happens at death? Is there life after death, or is this all there is? Do we have an immortal soul? Are well all going to heaven? Is there really such a place as hellfire? Andrews has answered these questions and far more. "Death" in the Bible is viewed as an "enemy" of humanity. The apostle Paul offered us hope from this last enemy, death. He wrote, "Death is to be brought to nothing." "The last enemy to be abolished is death." (1 Cor. 15:26, The New English Bible) How could Paul be so sure? Even though Paul had formerly been an enemy of Christianity, the one who had been raised from the dead, Jesus Christ, taught him personally. (Acts 9:3-19) This is why Paul also wrote, "For as by a man Adam] came death, by a man Jesus Christ] has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive."-1 Corinthians 15:21, 22.
