Using his trademark humor, sarcasm, and slight dose of irreverence to entertain and educate readers on the complex issue of the afterlife, author Jason Boyett demystifies the profound and the profane of the hereafter in his newly released POCKET GUIDE TO THE AFTERLIFE: Heaven, Hell, and Other Ultimate Destinations (Jossey-Bass, a Wiley imprint; August 2009; $12.95 / Paper; ISBN: 978-0-470-37311-8).
Designed to painlessly tackle complex religious topics in a succinct format, POCKET TO THE AFTERLIFE provides a brief and clever look into the varying beliefs on heaven, hell, and everything in between. Quirky content includes:
- A glossary of the differences between Ghosts and Demons, The Five Pillars of Wisdom and The Four Noble Truths, and Reincarnation and Resurrection
- A journey to the beyond of the Celestial Kingdom, the Chinvat Bridge, and Jahannam
- A list of the seven deadly sins and ways people might be purified from them in purgatory
Perfect for gifts, small group studies, or personal enjoyment, POCKET GUIDE TO THE AFTERLIFE, along with the other newly released titles in the series – Pocket Guide to the Bible and Pocket Guide to Sainthood, is small in size, hip in design, and cleverly illustrated. Pondering your eventual demise has never been so fun.
