University of Minnesota -Twin Cities Students are Reading Life After Death: A History of the Afterlife in Western Religion


Alan Segal’s Life After Death: A History of the Afterlife in Western Religion is a masterful exploration of how Western civilizations have defined the afterlife. Here he weaves together biblical and literary scholarship, sociology, history, and philosophy to examine the maps of the afterlife found in Western religious texts and reveals not only what various cultures believed but how their notions reflected their societies’ realities and ideals, and why those beliefs changed over time.

Life After Death has been chosen at University of Minnesota -Twin Cities’s Classical and Near Eastern Studies Dept. Course will be on the Death and the Afterlife in the Ancient World.

Scott Hahn’s Catholic Bible Dictionary Chosen at St. John Vianney Seminary

catholic bible dictionary

The Catholic Bible Dictionary is an unparalleled reference source of information, insight, and guidance for Catholics, students, as well as anyone interested in enriching their understanding of Sacred Scripture.

Catholic Bible Dictionary answers the urgent need for a generally accessible resource deeply rooted in the Catholic tradition. It will be of great help to Catholics in broadening and deepening the familiarity with the Bible they already possess through the regular readings in the liturgy. Particularly helpful are the clear overviews of each book of the Bible that will allow readers to place the selections they hear at mass in their proper context.”
—Dr. Michael Waldstein, Max Seckler Professor of Theology at Ave Maria University and translator of Pope John Paul II’s Man and Woman He Created Them: A Theology of the Body

St. John Vianney Seminary’s Catholic Bible School has selected Scott Hahn’s Catholic Bible Dictionary for its fall 2009 and spring 2010 Bible Studies course.
