LIFE AFTER DEATH: A Study of the Afterlife in World Religions

by Farnáz Ma'súmián

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 providing a general overview of answers from the scriptures of seven world religions: Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and the Bahá'í Faith.

The book examines the viability of reincarnation and transmigration theories, as well as various ideas that attempt to explain near-death experiences. Theological scholarship combined with insight and sensitivity make this book thoroughly readable, a simple introduction to profound and complicated subjects.
