​The Victorians thought, wrote and preached much more about heaven than we do today. As the subject of death comes out of the closet after 120 years when it has been largely shunned and avoided, this book presents the views on the afterlife of a number of well-known Victorians, and others not so well known, in the belief that they may help us today as we seek to get over our fear of death and what lies beyond it and to rescue ourselves from its privatization and over-medicalization.

​Ian Bradley is Emeritus Professor of Cultural and Spiritual History at the University of St Andrews, a Church of Scotland minister and a prolific author, preacher, broadcaster and journalist.
