Are we separated from the dead? If so how, and what do our prayers for them mean? John McDade answers these questions by exploring further the doctrine of Purgatory – how are we given life in death through achieving complete attentiveness to God?
The sight of crowds of people dressed up as ghosts, demons and monsters for Halloween is familiar, but what is the real tradition of All Hallows’ Eve and how has the Christian vision behind it been distorted? John McDade reclaims the truth about our death in Christ that informs our doctrine and our imagination.
