"For most people the thing they most treasure is staying alive on earth. As a result they live their entire lives in bondage to fear of physical death." - Dallas Willard
Can we know what will happen to us when we die? In Why Fear Death?, author Curtis Coleman answers, "Yes!" Leveraging his college and seminary training in the original Biblical languages and his experience building a successful international biotechnology company, Coleman masterfully weaves the Bible, modern science and popular culture into a tour de force that demystifies death and argues that the fear of dying can be defeated by knowing what many have argued is "unknowable."
"This is an incredible, Biblically-based book on Heaven. I am highly recommending it to many friends who have lost loved ones or those who just want to know about Heaven. The author, Curtis Coleman has a great love for the Lord and knowledge of the Bible." - Kendra
"As a Lay Supply Pastor, I thought this would be GREAT reference material for a series of sermons. The book is a 'home run'!! It is well written, easy to read, and most importantly, backed by scripture. Curtis does a great job of putting complex issues into easy to understand ideas. Now, if I can just preach this as well as it was written!" - Tom
"This book is written by a very devout man and one who has a very special relationship with God. I am in my 80's and had my share of opportunities to die. I have no fear of death but have had many questions. What this book has given me is a renewed faith that my savior will hold me in his hands and grant forgiveness." - David
"You will truly have NO fear of dying when you finish reading this book! This is a well written book with all the tools and biblical references that you need to understand death." - Mark
