“This is a huge success, all to the glory of God. Over 800 persons got their Kindle edition of this book for free within the first two days of its launch. Readers have since placed 15 positive reviews in the book’s Amazon page and persons continue to buy online.”

The paperback edition is now available for purchase in St Vincent and the Grenadines. “Not everyone has a device with Kindle or do transactions online. For these people and those who prefer a physical book to hold in hand and turn its pages, I have made it available in the leading bookstores here. Persons can also get their autographed copy from me directly,” said Ballantyne.

Jujube, Gaymes Bookstore, as well as the Teachers’ Bookstore in Kingstown currently carry the title. It is also available for reading at the Kings­town National Library and the libraries of The UWI Open Campus and the St Vincent and the Grena-dines Community College.

Immortality, Death and the Hereafter shares biblical and historical insights on the profound questions surrounding the soul and its mortality. Readers are given a view of the origin of the doctrine of the immortality of the soul, what happens when a person dies, all about the resurrections to come and how to face a future of satanic deceptions and miracles and remain unscathed.

“Most readers were able to connect with my personal story surrounding the death of my parents as I told it in the book,” stated Ballantyne. Persons are also buying it as gifts for friends and relatives.

Ballantyne is a minister of the Thusia SDA Church in St Vincent and the Grenadines. He also lecturer in accounting at the St Vincent and the Grenadines Community College.
