Excerpt

The ground covered in the following pages is so extensive that it has been necessary to pass lightly over many matters both important and interesting. The author has tried ever to keep in mind the main purpose of the book, which is to tell in as clear and simple language as possible the story of the rise, history, and the present state of the Christian hope of immortality. While no exhaustive bibliography has been attempted, it is hoped that enough has been given in the brief notes appended to the several chapters, as well as in the supplementary list at the close of the book, to point the way for further study to those who desire it. This has been the easier because within recent years a number of monographs have appeared which treat in a suggestive way of selected portions of the field.

Among the many to whom the thanks of the author are due for stimulus and suggestion, he desires to make special mention of his colleagues of the Faculty of the Union Theological Seminary, whose counsel in the fields in which they are specialists has been freely put at his disposal. To Professor James Everett Frame, Professor George A. Coe, and Dr. Julius A. Bewer especially, he is under obligation for helpful criticism.
