The Jewish Afterlife: Please Comment

Having studied Christian Theology, achieving my Masters in the subject, I am familiar with Christian eschatology (the study of the afterlife).  However I was raised Jewish and know little of my Jewish heritage.  My son, who died 5 1/2 years ago, is buried in a Jewish Cemetery.  The disconnect between the Christian Heaven and finding my son is probably because I never learned of the Jewish afterlife and my son was extremely proud of his Jewish heritage.  Thus feeling out of place in the Christian theological world.

I am asking anyone who reads this to please leave a comment with the name of an adequate resource of the Jewish afterlife for the purposes of study.  Anything works; an internet site, a book, a sermon……preferably a book.

Also f you know something about this subject please feel free to leave that in the comment section as well.  My brother was a scholar but he passed away also.  I will be thrilled to come back here tomorrow and find something to help guide me.  I need a place where I can be with my son, meet with him so to speak.

Thank you in advance.
