About the Author and this Book

The author is a bankruptcy attorney in Dallas, Texas, where he has resided since 1979. He is married and the father of four. After graduating from Dallas Theological Seminary in 1983, he returned to the practice of law, not having received God’s call to a different ministry. He is an ardent student of scripture and has been so since completing seminary. He is an evangelist and an author. He publishes his works without charge on (Proverbs 23:23) and publishes a website that argues for creation ex nihilo from the perspective of design in nature. That website is located at CREATIONDESIGN.ORG.

This work was written after the author discovered the reassurance and peace that comes from the understanding of the grand continuity of scripture as it relates to the afterlife. The current evangelical teaching of the afterlife, if any, is disabled by the uncertainty created by the often repeated error, “Death in the Bible means separation.” This error has effectively defined death out of existence: no one ever really dies! Everybody lives forever in either heaven or hell. The belief the Bible does not refer to actual death is a fog of theological error that creates uncertainty for those whose lifetimes are closing. True peace for those of us who can see the finish does not lie in the mistaken belief that no one ever dies. Death does not change just because the word is in the Bible. Death in the Bible is indeed real death. Reassurance lies in the fact that there are two of them but Christians die only one.

This work would not have been possible without the help and unwaivering encouragement of my wife, Mary Chesnutt.
