The book does cover the development of Christianity's anti-reincarnation stance very effectively. There is a lot of good information in this book. Although it missed the mark on Hebrews , I would still call this book indispensible for a Christian entertaining the possibility of reincarnation/5(7). In his book “Reincarnation in Christianity,” the respected Anglican priest Professor Geddes MacGregor wrote, “Reincarnation is one of the most fascinating ideas in the history of religion, as it is also one of the most recurrent themes in the literature of the world. The Christian and Reincarnation starts from the premise that the God that is worthy of Christian worship is one who is absolutely perfect and who upholds justice and love in all circumstances and at all times. It explains how it is that without the correct conception of reincarnation one could not logically speak of a just and loving God/5(6). Thank you for writing this article.

GEDDES MACGREGOR: REINCARNATION AS A CHRISTIAN HOPE. London: Macmillan, Library of Religion and Philosophy pp. REVIEWED BY DAVID LLOYD-JONES, UNIVERSITY OF CAPE TOWN Reincarnation is a belief which does not readily suggest itself as a living option to most Christians when they are confronted by the "ultimate questions" of human. Christian hope is when God has promised that something is going to happen and you put your trust in that promise. Christian hope is a confidence that something will come to pass because God has promised it will come to pass. How do we build our hope in God? Hope is a portion or part of faith. Faith and hope, in my mind, are overlapping realities: hope is faith in . Question: "What is the Christian’s hope?" Answer: Most people understand hope as wishful thinking, as in "I hope something will happen." This is not what the Bible means by hope. The biblical definition of hope is "confident expectation." Hope is a firm assurance regarding things that are unclear and unknown (Romans ; Hebrews , 7).
