Alger {Universalist}-Destiny of the Soul

Summary

This is a very large and somewhat complicated work by Alger (Universalist) on issues of the existence and destiny of the soul. Note that this work may contain arguments against the existence of hell. I would not recommend it for most Christians. Comprising 4977 books relating to the nature, origin, and destiny of the soul. The titles classified and arranged chronologically, with notes, and indexes of the authors and subjects.
