Synopsis: How long will this planet go on? How long will the universe last? Scientists give projected answers based on knowledge of universal physical laws. They talk of billions of years. When Christians take part in worship they express belief in what are called the Last Things-Death, Judgment, Heaven, Hell, concepts based on the Scriptures. Can these beliefs be held on to? Concerning future events the Bible presents diverse and even incredible ideas that are held by Christians. This book is an attempt to interpret the Bible in a credible way and to encourage faith in God's purposes. Endorsements: "Colin Craston describes himself as in heaven's 'waiting room.' Sometimes I have had my most profound conversations in waiting rooms-short, to the point, and illuminating as they come from a different perspective. You will find this book rather like one of these conversations with a man of great experience and insight." -David Wilkinson Principal St. Johns College Durham University Author Biography: Colin Craston is a retired priest in the Anglican Church in the Manchester diocese.
