Death is not solely a philosophical concept, but a reality that grips us at the core of our being. We all die, and throughout life we see many die before we do. How we respond to death and what we expect happens after death is a fundamental concept of faith and religion. This volume in the Faith Basics series digs into the Catholic approach to death and the afterlife and what it means for us that Jesus triumphed over death once and for all.
