It is the author's contention that when dealing with the subject of what happens at death and the so-called "intermediate state," it is important that we confine ourselves to the Word of God and not go to Tradition. Yet, when nine out of ten believe what they have learned from Tradition, we have a thankless task so far as pleasing man is concerned.

Experiences differ greatly and often contradict each other. Also, some traditional Christian doctrine has more in common with the teachings of the Pharisees than with those of our Lord Jesus Christ and what is in the Bible. This is true of Luke 16:19-31; by an extensive use of both Scripture and traditional sources, Dr. Bullinger places the evidence before the reader. As a result, Christians will find this publication very helpful and informative. Some may be surprised to find just how much of an influence the traditions of the Pharisees had on early Christianity and how some still permeate Christian thought today. 

In The Rich Man and Lazarus, E W Bullinger puts God's Revelation against man's imagination. Basing his analysis entirely on the words of the Bible and not on "Tradition," which he explains is cause only for great confusion. Bullinger explores what God actually reveals to us in Scripture concerning humanity in life and in death, as well as the state and condition of the dead.

First published in 1902, this work continues to inspire and enlighten readers of the Bible today. British clergyman ETHELBERT WILLIAM BULLINGER (1837-1913) was one of the most respected Bible scholars of the 19th century. He is the author of numerous works, including Commentary on Revelation, Great Cloud of Witnesses, and How to Enjoy the Bible.
