Book Chapter by Norman Pittenger

What is here attempted is a ‘demythologizing’ of traditional teaching on the subject of death. But the author makes it clear at the outset that he does not see such ‘de-mythologizing’ as the entire negation of the perennially Christian conviction that human existence has significance here and now and also has significance beyond this mortal life.
