Vincentian author Shefflorn Ballantyne has announced the release of his new Kindle book “Immortality, Death and the Hereafter”.
Ballantyne says the book shares biblical and historical insights on the profound questions surrounding the soul and its mortality.
“Readers will learn where the doctrine of the immortality of the soul originated, what happens when a person dies, all about the resurrections to come and how to face a future of satanic deceptions and miracles and remain unscathed,” said Ballantyne, who is a minister of the Thusia Seventh-day Adventist Church in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and also lectures in accounting at the SVG Community College.
The book also promised “clarity” on biblical passages such as the parable of Lazarus and the rich man; Saul’s bizarre visit to a witch in Endor; and Paul’s desire to be absent from his body.
“Having lost my mom to cancer days before my 20th birthday, and my father a decade before that from liver disease, I have always had an interest in the questions of whether we can receive visits from our dead loved ones, if the dead possesses consciousness and whether God will be torturing sinners for billions of years,” Ballantyne said.
He continued: “The loss of our loved ones always brings those thoughts to mind as we grieve. Everyone asks these questions. My only intention is for readers to understand how Satan has worked, is working and will work in the future to advance his deceptions using the unbiblical traditions and doctrines of the immortality of the soul and to take their position against these deceptions.”
According to Ballantyne, “Readers are expected to get a book that handles a very philosophical and ancient question in a very easy-to-read manner. Their beliefs will be challenged, but they will come away from reading this book with biblically sound ideas on the definition of the soul, hell and death among other things”.
The book will be launched on Amazon on Sunday March 20th, where kindle readers can receive a FREE kindle copy. This offer will be for only two days and will end on Monday, March 21.
