"Death is an unfortunate but inevitable part of life. But once they are dead, have our dearly departed really left us? As long as humans have lived and died, people have wondered about the possibility of life after death. Many believe in ghosts--apparitions that appear to the living. Others believe in good or evil spirits--unseen forces in nature. There are mediums and others with psychic abilities who claim to communicate with or have a spiritual connection with the dead. And then, there are people who believe they have experienced near death--often described as seeing a bright light, feeling secure, serene, warm, or the sensation of rising out of their bodies.
This volume of Freaky Phenomena acquaints readers with the lore and reality of ghosts and reincarnation. Life After Death explores the belief of life after death in various cultures, well-known ghost stories, and the question many of us find ourselves asking: What happens to us after death?
