“You are mortal. You are not indispensable to the world. Your life will come to an end. We’re not heroes of the world and we can’t do much. To what and to whom do we give ourselves in this short life? Lacking a journalistic account of the future leaves us with many unanswered questions: What will ‘do’ in heaven? What exactly will it feel like and look like? My most basic answer to questions like these is “I don’t know.” Our hope rests not in a speculative vision of the future but in God and his promise.”

With COVID having claimed over 200K lives and All Saints approaching, our guest is J. Todd Billings, Professor of Reformed Theology at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan. Diagnosed with multiple myeloma and living with incurable cancer, Billings reflects upon the end in his new book, The End of the Christian Life: How Embracing Mortality Frees Us to Truly Live.
