How the Jewish idea of life after death has evolved from the early more physical concept of the resurrection of a united body and soul to a belief in the immortality of the soul alone is traced by Rabbi Olan in the Bible, in the Apocrypha, in medieval philosophy, in the Kabalah and Chasidism, in the eighteenth century's Period of Enlightenment and in contemporary Judaism. Here of interest to Jew and non-Jew alike, is a concise yet cogent probe into the mystery of immortality, ranging over human experience of many centuries.
