What is the nature of human beings and their destiny? How should we understand the concepts of death and hell? Is the human being an indivisible entity or is there a soul that survives death? These important questions have been contemplated by great thinkers for millennia. In this collection of presentations given at the Third International Bible Conference at Nof Ginosar and in Jerusalem; June 11-21; 2012; Bible scholars from around the world address such important issues as the image of God in human beings; death and hell in Scripture and in contemporary Christian thought; as well as recent challenges to the biblical conception of human beings and their destiny. This latest contribution to the monism-dualism debate provides a vital resource for all who are interested in these important questions.
