Does anyone know of any good in depth books refuting psycopannychism? Thanks and God bless.


Yeah, Robert Morey if its still in print. Although he is anti-Catholic in some of his books and materials, he leaves that out in Death and the Afterlife (Bethany, paperback 2001, orig hardback 1984). I’ve used the hardback in my Conditional Immortality article.

I’ll also mention one of Calvin’s first theology books was in response to the Anabaptists (the “radical reformers”) of his day some who held to “soul sleep.” Catholic scholar George Tavard in The Starting Point of Calvin’s Theology has an analysis of this book. Calvin’s book was called Psychopannychia (1534) but that might be hard to find.

update: Found it!
