The journey of transformation

For the Lesson titled "Probation After Death" from April 22 - 28, 2013

“Probation After Death” is one of the theological topics Mary Baker Eddy anticipated would be at the forefront of thought through the centuries. And so it is. Just look at the book sales for Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife by Eben Alexander (discussed in the Sentinel, December 3, 2012, “Heaven is here” by Madora Kibbe).

This week’s Bible Lesson answers that epic question: Is there life after death? It explains the seeming irony that we can experience the “heaven” that people seek (peace, joy, freedom, life) here and now by walking with Spirit, God. The Apostle Paul captures the mental nature of this transition in his letter to the Romans, used in the Golden Text: “To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace” (8:6, English Standard Version).
