The Immortal Soul Shuffles Off its Mortal Coil

"In my church we declare every day and every week that we believe in "the resurrection of the body."  But do we?  Many Christian teachers and theologians in recent decades have questioned the appropriateness of this language...Let us again be quite clear.  If this is true (that there is no bodily resurrection, that this is simply an old idea of ancient Christianity), then death is not conquered but redescribed:  no longer an enemy, it is simply the means by which, as in Hamlet, the immortal soul shuffles off its mortal coil." - Wright, SbH, p16.
