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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Very well presented and enlightening

This seemed to be a fair-minded consideration of the scientific, religious and philosophical notions of the existence of an afterlife. The writer is a Christian (I am, too) and I was afraid that there would be more of a proselytizing slant on the discussion. That didn't appear until the very end of the book when his conclusion was that you don't have anything to lose, but everything to gain by accepting the belief in an afterlife, but that you must decide. Not sure I buy that since I don't think you can just "decide" to believe or not believe in something.
