In 1738, English preacher, Isaac Watts wrote ‘The world to come’, a Christian tract about departed souls, death, and the glory or terror of the resurrection. Almost 300 years later the world to come still fascinates readers. It’s not only climate change, it’s the climate of everything: from technological advances that threaten to create an immortal humanity, to a war on terror that has has no end, to a thousand visions of post-Apocalyptic life.
The world to come is almost upon us. Are you ready for it?
