A blog on the topic "Heaven, Hell, . . . and Purgatory?" has been set up by the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology in connection with the Pro Ecclesia conference on that theme June 10-12 in Baltimore.  Comments, bibiographies, etc., will appear between now and the conference.  The blog is open to all, whether or not you are attending the conference!
The blog is at http://heavenhellpurgatory.wordpress.com/

Looks like an excellent conference coming up in June, Dr. Root. Thanks for posting this.

Good preparation would be reading the recent US Lutheran-RC Dialogue document "Hope of Eternal Life" (2011):
http://www.elca.org/~/media/Files/Who%20We%20Are/Ecumenical%20and%20Inter%20Religious%20Relations/Hope%20of%20Eternal%20Life.pdf for online text, http://www.lutheranupress.org/Books/The_Hope_of_Eternal_Life to order the printed book.


Thanks for this, Fr. Slusser.

Another excellent resource for this conference is Terence Nichols' (University of St. Thomas -- the other one, in Minnesota) recent work Death and Afterlife: A Theological Introduction, definitely a worthwhile read.

Terry is an old friend. I'll take pleasure in telling him you like that book.

Well, thanks for that too, Fr. Slusser.  I really did enjoy and learn from Death and Afterlife, and its historical and theological survey; and the brief last chapter, "Dying Well," is homiletically moving in its grace and power.  I wish it were possible to have Terence Nichols at the CCET conference in Baltimore to share in the conversation (and you too, Fr. Slusser -- how about it?).
