A Short History of Heaven, by Joann Greig
This book is based on the research I did for my MA dissertation with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. It's available on amazon.com and other book sellers.
Heaven has played a central, although often unacknowledged, role in Western culture. This book explores the origins of concepts about heaven and how these may be found in Christianity.
Early writings from Egypt, Mesopotamia, Persia, Greece, and Rome are explored, with elements of shamanism, as well as the Hebrew and Christian Bibles and gnostic texts. The nature of the soul, the soul’s journey, and the role of morality are also considered. The book shows how age-old beliefs about life on earth and about heaven are important today.
Activities are included to encourage readers to explore their own thoughts and feelings about heaven.
