This book about ’How Mum’s Death Sparked Off Thoughts of Eternal Life’, is a fast moving narrative of how the death of a woman who was described as a virtuous woman by her community and the wider community, triggered thoughts of eternal life in many people, particularly the author herself.
The author, Tsitsi Dorcas Jongwe is a daughter of an Anglican Cleric and has had wide experience of practical Christian spirituality in a family of a parish Priest, Reverend Canon Lazarus Muyambi and wife Irene Neddie Muyambi of the Anglican Diocese of Central Zimbabwe.
Tsitsi is moved to a deeper reflection about eternal life and its meaning after the death of her mother on 21st of November 2016. She provides a wonderful, clear and helpful reflection on the subject of life after death and eternal life.
Tsitsi articulates a true and unique life of Neddie, the virtuous woman of Zimbabwe in Africa; whose clear hope and belief in eternal life was the strong source of inspiration for many. The book further provokes thoughts about modern and ancient Christian spirituality in preparation for the unavoidable eternal life.
Critical theological and dogmatic concepts of the purgatory, limbo, resurrection, heaven, hades, hell, Judgment, paradise and many others are explored in detail. There is greater clarity on the relationship between the living and the dead for the avoidance of syncretism and propagation of pure and clean Christian spirituality.
The greater fears of the uncertain relations between the dead and the living are well discussed and clearly explained, at least from scriptural experience.
