The Resurrection cycle: descent and ascent

Review "The Resurrection Cycle: descent and ascent".

Genesis 19:24-26 Then the Lord rained on Sodom and Gomorrah sulfur and fire from the Lord out of heaven. And he overthrew those cities, and all the valley, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. But Lot's wife, behind him, looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.

Various religious answers are presented. visit the site...
