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.

"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)
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.
I am very interested in how other people think. Reading allows the time for thinking about what is being said so that I can feel the words.
I am going to read this about 10 more times. Clear logic, well reasoned points, powerful delivery.
I was expecting a typical life after death book and instead got a complete education in every science known to mankind. While I consider myself an intelligent person, I was blown away with the incredible amount of information on physics, biology, physiology, history, philosophy etc. while I understand that some people need all of this to come to a conclusion on the matter of life after death, I do not. I did learn many things about these subjects while listening to this book, but some of it was over my head and this made a few of the chapters hard to get through. Chapters 5 and 6 in particular. I can think of a few people in my circle of friends who would like this book more than I did so I may recommend it to them. For me though, just thinking about ever listening to this again makes me cringe.
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.
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.
I am waiting patiently for the best book on earth!!
Made me think at a who new level!
Modern day way at looking at God!
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."
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.
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.
