AFTER DEATH - WHAT?
A Scholarly Exposition of a Vitally Interesting
Question That Has Deeply Agitated Thinking Men and Women
from Time Immemorial
By Madison C. Peters, D. D.
Author of "The Great Hereafter", etc.
Published by The Christian Herald

New York
[1909] (© 1908)

Rev. Peters was, throughout his life, and variously, a minister for the Presbyterian Church and the Baptist Faith, a Pastor for five years of the First Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia; for eleven years he was pastor of the Bloomingdale Reformed Church of New York, and then of the Epiphany Church in New York, and then the People's Church in Brooklyn. He was the author of many books.

In a brief Preface Rev. Peters states the purpose of the book: "The work here presented to the public is the result of many years of thought, reading and preaching upon the subject. Whittier speaks of the grave as 'that low green tent
Whose curtain never outward swings'.

Millions have gone through the gate of death, and while we have given the hopes which the poets have woven into a song, and the attempts of the philosophers to penetrate the veil of mystery that lies beyond, we have portrayed the after life as we learned it by the study of God's Revelation. We have presented reason's strong presumption, not only in favor of immortality, but of heavenly recognition also, in support of which we have sought and found full light in the Gospel.

The reader will find interesting things from the wise of the ages, and sit at the feet of the poets, the interpreters of the human heart-the expounders of its mysteries, but in every instance the Bible has been our court of final appeal. We do not share the popular opinion that we are in the dark with regard to 'The Life Beyond.' We have avoided speculation and have earnestly sought to declare the positive teachings of Christianity, to throw God's light on dark clouds, to cheer the desponding, to comfort the bereaved, and inspire the readers with the holy ambition to live here in such a way that they may be sure of the life to come. - MADISON C. PETERS. New York, December, 1908.
