Woody Allen may have said it best. "Rather than live on in the hearts and minds of my fellow man ... I'd prefer to live on in my apartment."
But the time comes when you can't live on in your apartment, or anywhere else. What do you think happens next? In his latest book, Bishop John Shelby Spong ponders the question of the ultimate mystery; death and what happens next.
Bishop Spong was the Episcopal Bishop of Newark, New Jersey until his retirement in 2000. His latest book is called Eternal Life: A New Vision: Beyond Religion, Beyond Theism, Beyond Heaven and Hell. It's published by HarperOne.
