Heaven, Philosophy, and Abrahamic Faiths

In 2017, Lexington Books published Heaven and Philosophy, edited by Simon Cushing.  Cushing is associate professor and chair of the Philosophy Department of the University of Michigan-Flint.

From the publisher's description:
This volume is a collection of essays analyzing different issues concerning the nature, possibility, and desirability of heaven as understood by the Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Topics include whether or not it is possible that a mortal could, upon bodily death, become an inhabitant of heaven without loss of identity, where exactly heaven might be located, whether or not everyone should be saved, or if there might be alternative destinations (including some less fiery versions of Hell). Chapter authors include believers and skeptics, well-known philosophers, and new voices. While some chapters are more challenging than others, all are written in a style that should be accessible to any interested reader.
Contributors include Evangelical Philosophical Society member, Joshua Rasmussen, author of Defending the Correspondence Theory of Truth (Cambridge, 2014), along with A.G. Holdier, who is a theology and philosophy instructor living in Idaho and co-host of The Story Cauldron Podcast.
