An Interesting Look at the Afterlife

"Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives" is a controversial book concerning the ideas of reincarnation and the period of time between lives. Written by Michael Newton, Ph.D., Newton uses deep hypnosis to take twenty-nine people into a "superconscious" state. While in this state people relate experiences about the time in between lives. The book takes on questions about Heaven and Hell, ghosts, and what happens when we die. While there is no physical evidence, the book is still quite interesting. Michael Newton, Ph.D. has been a psychologist, hypnotherapist, and teacher for more than forty years. If you have read this book, let us know what you thought of it!
