Aquinas on the Four Last Things: Everything You Need To Know About Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell:

We often think of death as the end, but it’s really just the beginning of eternal life. Death, judgment, heaven, and hell — often called the Four Last Things — are both awe-inspiring and fear-inducing, yet countless saints testify to the profound spiritual benefit of contemplating the awesome mysteries that await us in the afterlife.

Few saints have thought more deeply about the Four Last Things than St. Thomas Aquinas — history’s greatest theologian. In these pages, Dr. Kevin Vost has made readable and accessible St. Thomas’s core teachings and insights on the Four Last Things and the wondrous experiences God has in store for us.

With St. Thomas as his guide, Dr. Vost explores the destination of our souls after death and uncovers the mysteries surrounding limbo and purgatory. He unveils what our bodies will look like at the resurrection and identifies the four special gifts that will perfect our bodies in heaven. You’ll learn whether sinners will be “left behind” on earth and why we pray for the dead and to the saints. 

You won’t find here any long, ponderous theological treatises, but rather rapid-fire summaries in simple, accessible language that answer for you a wide range of questions, including:

  • Do our souls go straight to heaven or hell when we die? 
  • Are souls ever allowed to leave heaven or hell?
  • Will children who die without Baptism suffer eternal punishment? 
  • Where is purgatory mentioned in the Bible?
  • Will our glorified bodies glow?
  • How could God, in His justice, punish us eternally for the sins we committed in our brief time on earth?
  • Will the damned and the demons be released from hell one day?
  • What kinds of rewards await us in heaven?

Seventeen Steps to Heaven: A Catholic Guide to Salvation:

No matter how dedicated to Christ you are, familiarity can blunt your fervor and even make you less vigilant against sin. That’s why you need this warm guide! It reveals what you must do in order to begin living your life with God truly at the center of everything you do. With these seventeen steps, you’ll be able to prevent your love for God from being diminished by day-to-day pressures.

The author, Fr. Leo J. Trese, helps you to integrate into your actions the truths you profess. He gives you solid ways to look squarely at the reality and love of God and to root out contrary attachments in your life, showing you how to improve your confessions, pray more fervently, and let the fact of God’s love and the joys of Heaven inspire you to be holy.

Refreshingly unlike many modern writers, Fr. Trese speaks bluntly of Hell and of the devastating magnitude of sin. But don’t despair! He also discloses the remedies you can use to root out even the most entrenched sinful habits and attachments. Simple, profound, and insightful, this book is an effective and long-lasting antidote to the spiritual dry rot that infects the soul of even the most careful Catholics.

Make your salvation a vivifying reality as Fr. Trese shows you:

  • God’s anger: what the inspired writers of Scripture mean when they use this phrase — and how you can avoid this anger
  • What you must do if your confessions have become casual and thoughtless
  • “It’s only a venial sin”: why this is one of the saddest phrases you could ever speak
  • God’s judgment: how you can (and should) start getting ready now for this moment of divine truth
  • Suffering from strong temptations? Three things you can do today to overcome them
  • ...and more to help you attain a truly soul-nourishing relationship with God!
