Envisaging Afterlife in Light of the Doctrine of DiviniSation and the Co-Presence of the Divine in and through All Things

Modern Believing (2018), 59, (4), 339–352.

Abstract

This article considers the implications of divinisation and divine co-presence for a Christian vision of afterlife. If the human dead can be incorporated by grace into the Godhead, and if God is co-present in and through all things, then the divinised dead may be sacramentally present in and through creation. This suggests a model of afterlife as a new form of engagement with the world rather than an escape from it.
