Humanity has always wished for something beyond this lifesomething greater and uplifting beyond mere mortal existence. This feeling of longing is often seen as a religiously inspired conviction, and many people see their place in the afterlife as something divinely ordained. John J. Kula examines the myths as well as the far-fetched notions surrounding the afterlife in this expansive study that combines philosophy, science, religion and faith. He explores areas such as: science and religion and how they overlap; modern-day myths about the afterlife; psychic phenomena, channeling, and out-of-body experiences; and heaven, purgatory, limbo, and hell. By clearing away the misgivings and confusion that surround the notion of afterlife, youll realize that it is not like any place on earth. That is part of its incredible mystery. Take a positive, contemporary view of the afterlife, and look to the theological teachings of today to demystify ancient mythology with Reflections on Afterlife.
