David Fontana examines all the evidential material that has been accumulated about the afterlife. He looks at communications through mediums and witness accounts such as Near Death and Out of Body Experiences (NDEs and OBEs ) and compares them with the descriptions given in such mystical texts as "The Tibetan Book of the Dead" and "The Egyptian Book of the Dead".He explores the whole area of human consciousness and considers the question: if the body and the brain perish at death, what remains to survive? The non-physical nature of mind - the theory of 'subtle' bodies - astral, mental and emotional - could it be that there is a survival of memory, emotions and personality characteristics? He looks at the various descriptions of 'Paradise' - how it is portrayed in Western and Eastern traditions. And inevitably this leads to the contemplation of the meaning of existence - and what is meant by the union with the Divine. Do we create our own reality? What about the existence of infinite possibilities. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Existence after death... 2. Juli 2009
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
With its' gentle blue colouring on the front cover, the first impression on sight is one of comfort and a gentle approach to this sometimes touchy subject of death, and what we can expect from the experience.

The author, David Fontana, has many other titles (more than 40) including "Psychology, Religion and Spirituality", "Learn to Meditate" and "The New Secret Language of Dreams'. He is a Professor of Psychology, Past President of the Society of Psychical Research, and a Fellow of the British Psychological Society and has been investigating the evidence for survival of death for more than forty years.

I hadn't thought much about what happens after death as it isn't a huge concern to me: after reading this book I felt a bit more curious and thoughtful about the subject. The various chapters got me more and more interested in looking at what type of experiences I could expect from this once in a (or this) lifetime experience! The chapter titles are:

1. The Mystery of the Afterlife
2. Near Death and Actual Death
3. What Happens Next?
4. Sudden Death and States of Mind
5. Earthbound Spirits
6. The First Plane and Hades Conditions
7. The Plane of Illusion (Summerland)
8. The Formless Realms

There is also a section for references and a good index (both are handy if you want to look into a particular topic in more detail, or want to find something quickly).

Fontana is a relaxed and experienced writer. I found his writing style easy to read and understand, although due to the nature of the topic, some of the references were a bit `untechnical'. By this I mean that because it is impossible to produce hard evidence of life after death, we can all only go by what people have experienced death and returned, and by psychics: and I have to say that the author has done a great job in pulling together the common threads in the experiences of those who have temporarily experienced death.

This book would suit anyone who is curious about what happens to us when we die... or for those who are just curious in general! "Life Beyond Death" may also be of comfort to those of you who have experienced death and would like to compare your own experiences with those of others. I personally found this book to be comforting in terms of seeing death in more positive terms (even though I was a bit blasé about it before).

Insightful and very well researched 24. August 2010
Von Stephanie Noble - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is just so much better than most of the 'afterlife' books I've been reading throughout my research. David Fontana looks into almost every type of evidence provided for life after death in a succinct and informative way, speaking objectively as a man of science but also with great respect for the spiritual and paranormal world. If anything, I am most impressed that David Fontana did connect some of the 'universal' concepts of heaven present in almost all world religions with the communications recieved from the dead via mediums and other sources. In doing so, he shows thoroughness as a researcher in trying to gather as much evidence as possible while remaining poignant and precise. This is one of the first books that I've read that really delves into the nature of heaven (and hell) itself and what we should all expect, and not just the nature of death and the over-emphasized phenomenon of NDEs and what they 'should' mean to the scientific community.

A really enjoyable, beautiful read.

Excellent 1. Juli 2009
Von D.F. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Well written, almost clinical in nature with educational information regarding religion, after-life, etc. Seems unbiased and provides references from vast array of sources, recent and from the past. Very thought-provoking and insightful.

Fontana, Ever Analytical. 5. August 2013
Von Leslie Harris - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It can be said of all of Fontana’s books that he maintains a high level of scrupulous analysis. He maintains a high level of objectivity and always puts counter arguments to each topic – which he then treats with the same objectivity.

Pseudo-sceptics just love anything to do with the apparent survival of consciousness after physical death; they feel free to throw up ‘explanations’ – anything will do, no matter how improbable or how unprovable. This often works quite well and succeeds in intimidating some writers – but not someone with the formidable intellect of Fontana.

For anyone who wants objectivity and substantiation, this is an excellent book.

A Gem of a Book on the Structure of the Spirit World 7. Juni 2015
Von John Hoffman Ph.D. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
One of my favorite authors on life in the spirit world. This British professor is well respected in England for his research and the clarity of his writing. His explanation of the four planes of form and the three formless planes existing in the Spirit World is the best I have read in any book dealing with this subject. He succinctly distinguished the difference among each plane based on his research. The extensive reference list of books used in the books is impressive. It is a wise investment for the reader who wants to understand the world in which he or she will live for eternity.
