Quotes from Anthony Thiselton’s Life After Death

I just started Anthony Thiselton‘s Life After Death: A New Approach to the Last Things.    Here are some of quotes that I highlighted from the first couple chapters.

“Our hope and confidence cannot be based on the capacities of human beings to survive death and to become immortal.  Such confidence depends entirely on God’s promise of resurrection and new creation.  Everything depends here on trust in God, not on self-reliance.”

Virginia - Arlington National Cemetery: The To...

“The [resurrection] is based entirely on the promises and sovereign grace of God.  The [immortality of the soul] is based on the supposed human capacity to survive death.”

Thiselton quotes Martin Luther as saying, “Faith is a living, daring, confidence in God’s grace, so sure and certain that a man [or woman] would stake his life upon it a thousand times.”
