Many people spend more time planning for a vacation than preparing for eternity. Perhaps it doesn't seem real that we will still exist—fully conscious and alive—beyond the grave. But it's true, and it calls for careful consideration. In this updated edition of One Minute After You Die, bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges readers to study what the Bible says. Can near-death experiences teach us anything about life after death? How can we prepare for our own final moment? With 700,000 copies in print, this bestselling work makes an encouraging gift for believers and a tasteful word of caution for the undecided.

When Adam and Eve sinned, the paradise of Eden turned sour, and man’s fate was sealed. Life would be hard. Were it not for the grace of a redeeming God, there would have been no hope for our rebellious race.

Adam and Eve had no excuse. Their sin brought immediate judgment, but it also brought mercy. God put in motion a plan to redeem mankind from the curse of sin, a plan signified by the clothing God provided.

The devil deceived the first woman, and the first man followed suit. We’ve all been listening to the voice of the great liar Satan, from the beginning. The results have been catastrophic, and the long-term consequences of believing his lie are still felt today.
January 4, 2016
What do you do when you’ve made a bad call, and you have to live with it? The Bible has many examples of this. But how do we make the best of a bad decision? There is hope for us, even if we’ve really messed things up.

While many people prefer to mind their own business, Esther got involved at a crucial point in the history of the Jewish people. She spoke at great personal risk. We must do the same to face the daunting challenges that lie ahead.

To save her people from extinction, Esther faced the risk of execution as she begged the king of Persia to rescind a royal edict. She didn’t try to “pass the buck.” She knew that at that key moment, she had to act.
December 30, 2015
At crucial times, great leaders arise, often from simple roots. They’re seen at the junctions of history, and they are often called upon to make momentous choices. Today we meet one such leader, a woman named Esther.

Once people find forgiveness and freedom in Christ, they realize how enslaved they once were to the power of sin. Jesus came to deliver people from sin and give them abundant life and joy.
December 28, 2015
People in deep bondage often are under the illusion that they are free. Many of the religious leaders of Jesus’ day thought they were free, and they didn’t like being told that they needed deliverance. We can be delivered, for Jesus came to set us free.
December 25, 2015
Jesus said, “Everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. If the Son sets you free, you shall be free indeed.” That’s great news. Freedom is more than not being in jail. Freedom is living without the shackles of sin.
