Sintesi dell'editore

Is there life beyond the grave? Is it reasonable to believe in the afterlife? If so, how should we act on those beliefs?

Best-selling author Dinesh D'Souza undertakes an unprecedented voyage of intellectual discovery to reveal the truth about life, death and beyond. Unlike many books about the afterlife, Life After Death makes no appeal to religious faith, divine revelation, or sacred texts. Drawing on some of the most powerful theories and trends in physics, evolutionary biology, science, philosophy, and psychology, D'Souza shows why the atheist critique of immortality is irrational - and draws the striking conclusion that it is reasonable to believe in life after death.

He concludes by showing how life after death can give depth and significance to this life, a path to happiness, and reason for hope.

©2009 Dinesh D’Souza (P)2009 Blackstone Audio, Inc.

"Writing not only for the religious believer but also for the honest seeker, Dinesh D'Souza displays a sophisticated understanding of religion, philosophy, history, and science in making a convincing case for life after death." (Deepak Chopra)

Incredibly deceptive

The description states that the book uses reason and evidence to arrive at proof of an afterlife — heavily implying a secular case for life after death.

So imagine my surprise at finding out this is a Christian book, written for Christians. Didn’t even make it a few minutes into chapter 1 before hearing words like “church,” “pastor,” “scripture,” and “Christ.”

It’s incredibly dishonest and sneaky to market their book the way they did. WWJD, my a**. Do they think Jesus would’ve sneakily tried to sell their book to non-Christians through dishonesty and deception?

I’m glad I got this through a free trial and didn’t actually have to spend money on this drivel. I’d be FURIOUS if I actually had to pay to get bamboozled by the publisher like I was.

My Favorite of the Year

Don't wait until you are on your deathbed to read this terrific book. It will be too late. You won't feel up to reading anything. In this work, the author argues persuasively that science and philosophy actually support the premise of life after death - in contrast to common belief. This book is an entertaining, thought-provoking, eye-opening, and thorough exploration of a topic long thought the sole domain of religion. You'll learn much about things you've only superficially encountered before and will find yourself richly rewarded. The narration is excellent. There's nothing dull or stuffy about this book, and you'll find yourself racing to finish. Highly recommended for all listeners.

eye opener

This is a great book I strongly recomend it to anyone who has an intrest in the afterlife, and if you enjoy this book you will also enjoy 'what dreams may come' by Richard Matheson as it hits the same topic and in my opinion they go hand in hand.

Life After Death is REAL

I found this book to be very interesting and informative. Dinesh D'Souza presents a very technical and concise story of the evidence to support our Christian beliefs.

Waste of time

Mere commentary and conjecture. No substance. Rehash of old ideas pretending to be new. Don't waste your time.

Beautiful Book

I am going to read this about 10 more times. Clear logic, well reasoned points, powerful delivery.

Awful

D’Souza is hell bent on point scoring and bragging about his superior debating skills. I couldn’t listen past chapter 3.

Incredibly boring

This is a highly difficult, unnecessary complex, mathematical, philosophical analysis of the idea of life after death. Waste of time.

I converted from stradling the fence to a believer

Would you consider the audio edition of Life after Death to be better than the print version?

For me it is, I can work it in while driving or working out. The retention is not as good as reading.

What did you like best about this story?

the various examples of believers and non believers

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

crossing through doubt

Any additional comments?

Dinesh must be very bright, certainly can communicate clearly and does not display predjudice

Not too bad

There are some really good points made by the author that i had never though of. I got a little lost where it gets very cerebral but seems to look at the whole subject in many aspects, scientific, religious and theology. There was some very deep thought into this.
