Ever find yourself "sitting on a 'stump'"--Asking how you got there? Inquiring-- What do I do now? Questioning-Where do I go from here? or Wondering-How will I get there? That's where Ken found himself after a terrible automobile accident. All of a sudden, he was at the end of "Life's Road," sitting on a "stump"-his decision was made for him as he was taken on a "trip" to visit Hell and then on to Heaven. He tries to describe both in detail the best that he can, but he says it is really impossible to "really" depict them as he experienced. "It is impossible to use words that would accurately portray "Horrible Hell" and "Wonderful Heaven," he asserts. Ken adds, "That "The devil wanted to keep me" and God gave me a "message" to bring back and tell everyone about it." A "choice" is provided for the reader that will give them an "After-Life Insurance" Policy and it's FREE. Experience some of what Ken encountered on his "trip." Accept the "Challenge" that is given you! A "Life-changing" experience for Ken and his family and it can be for you, also. A simple book with a compelling message! This book was written out of obedience to God's direction.

On the Backroad to Heaven is a unique guidebook to the world of Old Order Anabaptist groups. Focusing on four Old Order communities -- the Hutterites, Mennonites, Amish, and Brethren -- Donald B. Kraybill and Carl Desportes Bowman provide a fascinating overview of their culture, growth, and distinctive way of life. Following a general introduction to Old Order culture, they show how each group uses a different strategy to create and sustain its identity. The Hutterites, for example, keep themselves geographically segregated from the larger society, whereas the Brethren interact more freely with it. The Amish and Mennonites are more alike in how they engage the outside world, adopting a complex but flexible strategy of compromise that produces an evolving canon of social and religious rules. This first comparative study sketches the differences as well as the common threads that bind these groups together.

A number of the basic tenets of Jewish belief regarding the afterlife, resurrection, immortality, judgment, messianism, and the world to come are laid out in this fascinating and accessible volume. Beginning with the Bible’s references to Sheol and its allusions to resurrection, this survey explores immortality and bodily resurrection in Second Temple literature; the Mishnah’s discussions of olam ha-ba, or the world to come, and how to merit entry into it; and the Talmud’s depictions of paradise and hell, and the soul’s journey through these metaphysical landscapes. The book also explores the views of medieval scholars such as Maimonides and Nahmanides, Jewish mystical teachings about reincarnation, and modern views of faith and belief, as well as the evolving view of the Messiah over the course of Jewish history. This absorbing study demonstrates that the afterlife is indeed a vital part of Judaism as it reveals how generations of Jews, from biblical times to the present, have grappled with the core ideas and beliefs about the hereafter.
