Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1890 edition. Excerpt: ...none of its evil; with all of its gladness and none of its grief; with all of its love, and none of those things which in this world frequently make love so cruel, so heart-breaking.

Our bodies!" These eyes shall behold, and not another." Bodies very different, yet identical. I have the same body that once lay a chubby babe asleep in its cradle. This is the same body that shall totter, weak and broken, to the grave. And it is the same body that shall stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

The Creator can gather up particles whence he will, and clothe the living, self-conscious, undying soul with its own body, perfected and spiritualized. When God says, "Come again, ye children of men!" then will they come. The sailor from the coral reef, the soldier bleaching on the desert, the martyrs' dust, shall not be forgotten then. The ashes which Marcus Aurelius mixed with the waters, the dry dust from marble urns, the mummied dead from vault and pyramid, the men of olden time, prophets and sages, kings and warriors, David and Saul, Pilate and Judas, Peter and John, Nero and Marcus Aurelius, Luther and Hugh Latimer, you and I, will be there.
