Death, to many people, is the ultimate misfortune in life, and is so universally dreaded that people spend their lives doing everything imaginable to delay it as long as possible. Most people make every effort in an attempt to stay alive as long as they can. Moreover, death is seen as the darkest and most tragic of all occurrences in the cycle of life. One particular world religion even teaches that survival is the most basic of all human needs.
Yet, is there another perspective on death that would change completely the fear and tragedy of this event in one's life? I believe that there is. Death appears dark, unknown, and fearsome because it is seen from the only perspective we know: man's perspective. However, if the God of the Bible is truly the ultimate standard for all things, then it makes sense that the ultimate and perfect standard on death would be found only in God's perspective. This seems to mean then, that God's view of death must be A Paradigm of Death.

Now available is Rev. Thomas Leighow's research and work on the subject of death and theodicy. His book, A Paradigm of Death, is a look, not so much on what the Bible says about death, but rather, what the Bible reveals about God's perspective on death.
Is it possible that, when we better understand God's heavenly view of death, we might become better equipped to deal with the darkness, fear, and tragedy of death?
This book will bring comfort and blessed relief to those who have lost a loved one, or for those who are suddenly aware of their own imminent death. Rev. Leighow makes it clear that, "to conquer death, you only have to die."
Yes, this might seem strange to us, but Scripture teaches us that death is simply the vehicle that brings us to God's eternal kingdom.
