Latest podcast: Eternity? What happens after we die?

What happens after death is the fascinating subject of our latest podcast. A belief in the afterlife is a cornerstone of religious faith, but different faith groups offer variations in their interpretation of what happens at the end of life.

James Abbott discusses the subject with guests Archbishop Bernard Longley (Christian), Imam Mohammed Asad (Muslim), and Simon Romer (Buddhist), focusing in particular on whether a knowledge of eternity can help us to live well in the here and now.
