There is a world to come awaiting both sinner and saint. Our culture is consumed with a fascination for theories about the end times and what will occur after that, but instead, this book presents the biblical teaching on what will happen after death, at the end of time, and for all of eternity.
Watts is clear about the joys of heaven to be realized by the saint, as well as the eternal duration of hell prepared for the unbeliever—a topic most relevant in our day when so many are accepting the doctrine of annihilationism. What is especially useful about this book is that Watts goes beyond just proclaiming the biblical doctrines of heaven and hell; he also presents practical instruction on how to prepare for death, both for the saint and sinner.
About the Author
Isaac Watts (1674-1748) succeeded the great John Owen as pastor of Marks Lane Chapel in London and wrote prodigiously. However, he is best known as being author of over 750 hymns including, “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross,” “Alas, and did my Savior Bleed,” and “Joy to the World.” Watts’ rational mind combined with such artistic talent has made him one of God’s greatest blessings to the people of God.
