Author's Commentary Jul 2, 2005
Imagine that you were a Jew living a thousand years before Christ. What was your hope of a heaven? Not very positive . . . several Jewish scriptures speak of a dismal place called Sheol, a land of shadows. Yet this carefully researched work makes the case that there was also a parallel message, in the Psalms and other works, that there would be an eternity of joy for the just with Yahweh.
