Do we all possess a soul? If so, what is it? Can it be defined? Crawford argues that it is important that we have a soul because if it is immortal then we can hope for life after death. But some religions insist that it is the resurrection of the body which is vital. How can the belief in an immortal soul and resurrection of the body be reconciled? Crawford attempts to answer this question in the context of six world religions and the science and technology of twenty-first century society.
