Life Everlasting Life Everlasting by the incomparable Dominican theologian, Fr. Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange (1877-1964), is a serious theological treatise on the Four Last Things - Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell - but purposely written for the average reader. His intention is to show people the exalted "immensity" of the human soul and that only possession of God in the Beatific Vision in Heaven can completely satisfy man's desires. But in the process, he discusses very briefly many theological aspects that bear on our final end - such as, "the roots of vice and virtue," "purgatory before death," "final impenitence," "the grace of a happy death," "immutability after death," "the Particular Judgment," "the Last Judgment," "theological reasons for Hell," "eternal Hell and divine perfections," "the pain of loss," "demonstrative arguments for Purgatory," "Purgatory's chief pain," "the nature of eternal beatitude," "the sublimity of the Beatific Vision," etc. Calling on Scripture, St. Thomas Aquinas and the rich theological tradition of the Catholic Church, Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange weaves a profoundly enlightening study of 32 considerations relative to man's final destiny - Heaven or Hell - that at once instills the reader with powerfully motivating insights about his final end, but that also inspires him to conform his life to God's holy law in order to insure that his final destination is indeed life everlasting

Reviews - What do customers think about Life Everlasting and the Immensity of the Soul: A Theological Treatise on the Four Last Things: Death, Judgment, Heaven, Hell?
Excellent treatise on the afterlife Mar 15, 2003
This theological treatise by Fr. Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange is excellent! He deals with the immensity of the soul in the first section of the book. Then he devotes a section each to death and judgment, hell, purgatory, and heaven. He explains each aspect in great depth, though in a manner fairly easy to understand. He deals with questions that should be of interest to most Catholics; for example, the question of charity for the souls in purgatory, the nature of the joys of heaven, etc. I highly recommend this book for helping to understand the theology regarding the afterlife, as well as for helping to focus one's thoughts on our goal, union with God in heaven.
A most profound and arresting treatise on the "last things". Sep 24, 1996
EVERLASTING LIFE is a most profound and arresting
theological treatise on the "last things" according to
Christian revelation: death, judgment, heaven, hell, and
purgatory. Written by the theologian who was the dissertation
director for Pope John Paul II's doctoral work in spiritual
theology on the doctrine of St. John of the Cross, it
continues the author's habit of synthesizing the tradition of
the Church within the light of the teaching of St. Thomas
Aquinas. It is perhaps the simplest yet most theologically
lucid introduction to the Church's teaching on these matters.
