In this episode of the Author Talks with Shaun Tabatt Podcast I interview Jason Dykstra about his book Healing Hereafter: Finding Rational and Refreshing Answers for Why We’re Here and Where We’re Headed.
About the Book:
Do you wrestle with the horror of an idea like hell?
Do you worry how heaven could be as good as promised?
Do you sometimes feel the biblical afterlife is unfair or doesn’t even make sense?
If you do, then Healing Hereafter is for you.
Author Jason Dykstra offers a comprehensive framework in a single, well-researched sourcebook for exploring issues related to human destiny. He investigates God’s nature and sovereignty, free will and predestination, sin and death, the gospel and humanity’s access to it, faith and good deeds, judgement and resurrection, suffering and hell, and heaven and the New Earth. Healing Hereafter journeys with you to discover if and how God’s biblical design for humanity’s destiny is consistent, rational, and necessary.
For the busy reader, a quick-read version of Healing Hereafter is included. Both illustrated summaries and a brief written summary are also provided to help readers quickly revisit the book’s most important themes. Healing Hereafter is well-suited for use in your own personal faith journey, in small group discussions, and in the classroom.
Note: To help heal hereafters of those in need, 100% of the proceeds from the sale of Healing Hereafter will be donated to four well-respected and highly-rated charity organizations supporting hungry or oppressed orphans, women, and families.
About the Author:
I work as a physician specializing in diagnostic radiology. For over a decade I have also volunteered as a mentor to hundreds of high school and college students. My new book Healing Hereafter arose by combining the challenge of problem-solving inherent to my profession with the joy of tackling the complex questions about the Christian faith alongside the many inquiring young minds who ask them. Navigating such universal and relevant concerns with others has been so freeing and healing for me, and I hope it is even more so for you.
My wife and I live in West Michigan with our two children, who have brought with them the great blessings of family, adoption, and a diversity of friends. We continue to mentor college students, participate in the trans-racial adoption community, and advocate for those exploring adoption, experiencing infertility, and undergoing financial difficulty.
Challenged by the example of Jesus and others to keep less and bless more, our family lives off less than the US median income to experience the amazing joy, relationships, and restoration that the remaining money produces. It is very humbling to better appreciate now those who give under far more sacrificial circumstances, and it is very inspiring to see the beautiful fruit borne by challenging oneself to heal the hereafters of others.
