Life After Death: A Study of the Afterlife in World Religions

What happens to us when we die? What is the soul? Where are heaven and hell? Is there a reckoning with the creator?

Questions such as these about death and dying have frightened and fascinated humanity since the beginning of time. Life After Death explores these questions in detail by examining answers from the scriptures of seven world religions: Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and the Bahá’í Faith. Included are examinations of the viability of reincarnation and transmigration theories, as well as various ideas that attempt to explain near-death experiences. The theological scholarship combined with insight and sensitivity make this book a thoroughly readable, simple introduction to profound subject.

    I not only found this to be a carefully researched book on how death is viewed through the lens of the many religions that grace our world, it has opened new knowledge for me of cultures different from my own. Like studying another cultures’ language or food, the beliefs on death is walking through the door of that culture. It has been a re-read for me.

    This is a well researched book on the varying beliefs of life after death in the worlds religions. But more than that, like studying another cultures’ food and language, it is walking through the door of that culture. Beliefs around death are powerful and formative. I highly recommend this book.
