Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Dissappointed"

    The only way I can describe this book is that it tries desperately to complete a circle but the ends keep missing each other. The author describes the similarities in all religions only to end up saying why his is the only true one. I had hoped this book was really about life after death but found myself in a fantasy world about his concepts of what will be. While progressive revelation has been working the people of this planet from individual families to tribes to nations and to ultimately to one world. The followers and ministers of religions continually work towards divisiveness. When are we going to see that if there is only one God than we all must be worshiping that God, no matter the name. I also find it facinating that we take the worst people from a religion and characterize the whole religion by them.

    For example Mohammed told his followers that they could only have as many wives as they could treat equally. To me, being a woman that means one. Before Mohammed, in that part of the world, women held a place lower than cattle. Female infants were burried alive customarily. I am not a Muslem but I would say that Mohammed's teaching was a step up for women. Yet in America, in the 60's, I was taught in public school that Muhammad was evil.

    Wickedness in most religions come from the people who pervert it. Christian Ministers constantly try to interpret the Word, when the Bible itself says that to do so is blasphemy. Each person needs to come to her or his own conclusion.

    Back to the book. D'Souza gets an A for elequence but a C for reasoning. The book is also written to the Athiest as the audience. The title is misleading and I would not have purchased it had I known the theme.

    "Dinesh has a gift for simplifying."

    I Loved this book. It was simplified to be understood by a regular Joe or even an intellectual tween. Alot of ammo in the defense of common objections to faith in general. I have actually listened through this book twice.

    "Intellectual Study"

    I always enjoy reading life after death stories. This was not one of them. This is an intellectual study of religions, non believers and science on the subject at hand. My mind wandered often during the narration. I do not believe this book provided any evidence of life after death as it is left up to the listener what they believe after all of the so called evidence.

    "Information to be learned"

    Thought provoking and interesting. I enjoyed listening to the many different thoughts on beliefs about what occurs after death. I would have like a little more "evidence."

    "Still waiting for the evidence."

    This book took me forever to get through. I almost abandoned it twice but kept on pushing through it hoping to come upon the chapter that provided the "evidence". I guess one persons "evidence" is another persons "speculation". This book is pure speculation and argument. There is NO REAL EVIDENCE presented in any fashion.Existentialism and philosophy is NOT science. I cannot make the assumption that something exists just because I cannot prove that it does not. I am open to the idea, that's the best any of us can do unless I look at the subject with blind faith. I want to believe with all my heart. I do believe something is there, but is it true consciousness or something else, or oblivion? Read for yourself. Make your own assumptions or conclusions. For me I guess the reason we haven't seen any real proof of an afterlife on the evening news is because there is no way to tell, until we make that trip for ourselves. I guess I'll find out soon enough. So no more books like this for me. I'd rather focus on the "Current Life".

    "no"

    I found this book boring. Some of the things mentioned about Buddhism were wrong. Reincarnation was not ruled out logically. Largely biased towards Christianity. I also do not believe that the author proved his point with logic. Life after death seems to be a faith based belief.

    "Awful!"

    If you are looking for religious confirmation then this would be your book. I mistakely thought it was more spiritual in nature as opposed to Biblical based "proof." (Biblical proof is NOT proof.)

    I could only listen to about 30 minutes hoping it would get better, alias, it did not. I only wish the description was more forthcoming to WHAT her proof really was. I feel that I wasted a credit and feel mislead that it was of a more "spiritual" nature and NOT CHRISTIAN/Bible based.

    "Evidence M.I.A...."

    I came to this audio book with an open mind, but the author offers philosophy and theological reasoning instead of "evidence". Having said that, the first half of the book offers some sound arguments that show up many of the flaws of modern Atheistic Worldviews. There were some interesting anecdotes about near death experiences and reincarnation. Unfortunately, the 2nd half of the book offers a raft of trite philosophical thoughts which the authors posits as evidence for an afterlife. Any possibility of a listener being swayed to the author's point of view is totally undone by a very wishy washy 2nd half.
