Description: What precisely happens at the time of death is a question that theologians have struggled over for centuries but have never answered satisfactorily. The response to this question that Ladislaus Boros gives in his monumental synthesis, The Mystery of Death, is that in death we meet Christ fully for the first time and in doing so attain to full consciousness and freedom. It is therefore only in the moment of death that we are able to elect for or against our eternal salvation; it is we ourselves who pass judgment on ourselves.

In her introduction and commentary, Cynthia Bourgeault argues passionately that Ladislaus Boros represents a necessary link to understanding the radical theology of Teilhard de Chardin. She presents Boros who stands firmly on the shoulders of his celebrated Jesuit mentor Karl Rahner as a "powerful potential bridgebuilder, able to mediate an illuminating dialogue between Teilhard and the greater Christian theological tradition.
