May Your Names be Inscribed in the Book of Life "As Jewish people celebrate the Fall Feasts, many send out greeting cards wishing that their loved ones' names may be written in the book of life. But how do we move beyond hope to assurance? What happens to those whose names are not written in the book? "If anyone's name was not found written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the lake of fire."(Revelation 20:15) Obviously this is a most crucial issue.
