Book opportunity! Contrary to what we may be led to believe, we can know to a large degree what happens to us after death. In my 2015 book, Paranormal: A New Testament Scholar Looks at the Afterlife, I examined four types of evidence for the survival of the individual soul after death. You will be amazed and comforted by the lessons gleaned from that evidence; my findings and conclusions are as much about our lives on earth as our lives on “the other side.”

May the sun bring you new energy by day. May the moon softly restore you by night.
May the rain wash away

your worries. May the breeze blow new strength into your being.
May you walk gently through the world

and know its beauty all the days of your life.
