Mindful that it is common to think about one's own death, and that such such thought is necessary to understand the meaning of life, this book - faithful to the teachings of scripture and the tradition of the Church - details the principal elements of the Christian faith that lead to the emergence of a hope in resurrection of the body. The book first focuses on the subject of the last things. It considers the situation of each person at the moment of their physical death and after it: death, personal judgment, heaven, purgatory and hell. Bishop Sesbo is not silent about the risk in which people's human lives are engaged. Yet, in pondering these realities in depth, he discovers the dynamic of a hope stronger than fear, for the Lord who comes is already at work in humanity and in the heart of each person, the God of the living: "the resurrection and the life".
