First Things
"A spirited, erudite, and convincing defense of the orthodox Christian understanding of the immortality of the soul."
Alvin Plantinga
"Body, Soul, and Life Everlasting is careful, thoughtful, and thorough; it provides a much-needed antidote to the facile endorsements of mind-body monism so characteristic of contemporary theology and philosophy."
Philosophy of Religion
"A clearly written, well-argued defense of mind-body dualism. Anyone with interest in the religious implications of alternative theories of mind, and especially the bearing of these theories on convictions about the afterlife, will find Cooper's work valuable."
Religious Studies Review
"Cooper's overview of the debate and logical analysis of the issues involved are admirable. This book will be of interest to scholars of biblical anthropology and eschatology."
The Thomist
"Cooper provides the exhilarating prospect of permitting us to remain properly and fashionably 'holistic' about human nature while yet affirming the 'dualism' implicit in Scripture and tradition. . . Cogent and illuminating."
Books & Culture
"Perhaps the most substantial contemporary defense of the traditional understanding of the soul."
Theology Today
"In a time when the traditional theological distinction between soul and body, or between spiritual and corporeal aspects of human nature, has frequently been dismissed as an unbiblical and psychologically untenable dualism, John Cooper offers a balanced and well-constructed argument in defense of the traditional perspective."
C. Stephen Evans
"This work should be required reading for Christian philosophers, theologians, psychologists, and others interested in the perennial question as to the nature of human persons and their destiny beyond the grave."
