Summary
There is one thing we can be sure of: we are all going to die. But once we accept that fact, the questions begin. This book examines the myriad questions that arise when we confront the meaning of mortality. Do we have reason to believe in the existence of immortal souls? Can we make sense of the idea of surviving the death of one's body?
