There can be nothing more important than a matter of life or death, and here Tom Barnes deals with exactly that. He defines 'life' and 'death' and shows how urgent a consideration of these things is for every human being. Why does the Bible speak of what most people regard as 'normal life' as in fact being dead? And what kind of remedy does the Bible offer and what is true life as the Bible defines it? All these questions - and others along the way - are answered clearly and helpfully in this book. This is a book for thinking people who have not yet come to faith. They should be sure to read it with care: it is literally a matter of life and death.
