Heaven as Embodied: The Forgotten Theology

Gideon Strauss, on what he calls "Christian platonism lite":

Last night I discovered that - yet again - many of my Introduction to Philosophy students believe that their eternal destiny is as souls in heaven with God, with "heaven" understood in a fuzzy way, but certainly not including being embodied. And most of the same students believe that the purpose of Christian evangelism is to win souls for heaven. Hallo, Apostles' Creed. Hallo, Nicene Creed. Unlike most Americans (don't know about Canadians), I believe in the resurrection of the body (for a start).
