Death and Immortality

Pieper, Josef

“Pieper [attempts to] show how death must be seen as an experience of the whole man and is properly to be understood as ‘punishment.’ When he views man’s pilgrim status on earth, Pieper is led to assert that death is an act of human freedom, consistent with Creation and redemption. . . . With his rare gift of high-level popularization, Pieper brings a critical mind and an in-depth acquaintance with the scholastic tradition to bear on contemporary thought and experience. . . .

[This] volume deserves a place on any bookshelf devoted to Christian philosophy.” – Library Journal
