O Death, Where Is Thy Sting?
by Alexander Schmemann

O Death, Where Is Thy Sting? by Alexander Schmemann
  • Description
  • Reviews

"...In order to console himself, man created a dream of another world where there is no death, and for that dream he forfeited this world, gave us decidedly to death.

...Therefore, the most important and most profound question of the Christian faith must be, how and from where did death arise, and why has it become stronger than life? Why has death become so powerful that the world itself has become a kind of global cemetery, a place where a collection of people condemned to death live either in fear or terror, or, in their efforts to forget about death, find themselves rushing around one great big burial plot?"

— Alexander Schmemann, Radio Liberty Broadcast

In this brief collection, Father Alexander Schmemann does not have the luxury for platitudes and pleasantries on the most difficult of life's ultimate questions. Taking us to the heart of Christian revelation and anthropology, he leads us unequivocally and directly, as only he can, to discole why the apostle Paul calls death the "last enemy" (1 Cor. 15:26) and Christ's decisive answer to this enemy.
