The An-a-sta-sis of the Dead," instead of the Resurrection of the Dead, may seem improper, it being unusual ; but if for that which is scripturally symbolized by those expressions, we really must use a term other than the plain Anglo-Saxon " rising,” (or “ raising;”) why not sometimes ana-stasis, from a word out of the original Greek of the Evangelists and Apostles, as well as always re-surrection, from a word out of the Latin Version of the Romish Church ?
The author of the following work is entirely confident that its leading theme — the scripture doctrine of the anastasis or rising of the dead -- has a most intimate connection with the true philosophy of the afterdeath life; hence that were the subject generally viewed in its true light, thousands would come to regard it with a great degree of interest, who now seem to consider it as scarcely worthy a moment's consideration. For these reasons and others, he deems such a work called for; and in the spirit of that scripture which says, “I believed, therefore have I spoken," he, believing, has therefore written, regretting only that he does not wield an abler pen.
