There is much erudition, insight and precise and careful reasoning on display throughout. * Philip G. Ziegler, International Journal of Systematic Theology *
T. Ryan Byerly and Eric J. Silverman have edited an impressive collection of 17 new essays dealing with these and other problems related to the possibility and desirability of Heavenly existence, its presuppositions, and its implications...All of the essays are of the highest standard of analytic theology, and I can only recommend the book to anyone interested in one of the most important themes of theological reflection concerning the Christian hope for the world to come. * Benedikt Paul Goecke, Reading Religion *
The contributions to this volume should provide rewarding food for thought about a wide range of issues, to theists and non-theists alike. * Evan Fales, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
