The Resurrection World

  • Hywel D. Lewis
Part of the Philosophy of Religion Series book series (PHRES)


It would seem that, over the ages, the greater part of mankind has believed in some kind of life after death. The position may be changing now, though for various reasons I doubt it. But there can be little doubt about the past. Most persons have lived in some expectation of being alive again after they are dead. This may not always have been a very ‘real’ expectation, in Newman’s term; and that would account, in part, for the terror which death has often held for men — it would sometimes seem to be just ‘the end’. But in the main this is not what seems to have prevailed. If we go by what people have professed, in their practices and culture especially, they seem to have had a fairly firm and sustained belief in some kind of destiny for themselves beyond their life in this world.
