Read full description of the books:
The idea that man is an eternal individual is vital to a full understanding
of the doctrines of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is as important
to Latter-day Saints that there will be a "forever forward"
as that there has been a "forever backward."
In Eternal Man, Truman Madsen, who was known for his grasp
of philosophy and his deep conviction of the truthfulness of the
restored gospel, offers profound insights about six fundamental
"puzzles" in philosophy and religion. This classic work, available
for the first time in many years, includes a Publisher's Preface
plus essays on such questions as "Whence Cometh Man?" "Evil
and Suffering," "The Spirit and the Body," and "Freedom and
Fulfillment." He demonstrates how a true understanding of our
nature can make life here and now more meaningful and the
eternities ahead a glorious existence to be eagerly anticipated.
Truman G. Madsen received graduate degrees in philosophy
and the philosophy of religion from the University of Utah
and Harvard University. He held the Richard L. Evans Chair
of Christian Understanding at BYU for more than twenty
years and served as director of the Jerusalem Center for Near
Eastern Studies. He was widely recognized as an expert on
the life and teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith and of the Savior. The author passed away in 2009.
