This final chapter discusses the moral significance of heaven and hell, the moral import of the resurrection in terms of revealing the human telos, and aspects of the human condition without which no moral picture is entirely complete. It also discusses the ineliminable growth in virtue and holiness that is a vital component of Christian soteriology, and how the afterlife both invests the questions of morality with great significance while also demonstrating that morality, finally and ideally, is replaced with something else far greater, of which morality in the here and now offers but a provisional intimation.

Keywords:   Trinity, resurrection, incarnation, moral motivation, self-interest, sacrifice, death, hope, virtue, eschatology
