The Idea of Immortality 1921–1923

Andrew [Seth] Pringle-Pattison

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

In this volume, Pringle-Pattison gives a historical review of how the idea of immortality is expressed in different ages, and examines the corresponding foundation for the hope of immortality for each period. He defines ‘eternal life’ as experienced through the participation in the being of Christ; it is a spiritual attitude intended for the here and now.
