"Will provide a journey of enlightenment for all those interested in learning about new spiritual views toward life and death."--Booklist

According to ancient Egyptian religion, we are travelers in eternity who require a body of knowledge that will take us into death...and beyond. The Egyptian Book of the Dead serves as our guide on this journey--an indispensable spiritual map. Here is the essence of that timeless guide, the complete Papyrus of Hunefer, including translation, commentary, and illustrations on every page. Brilliantly drawn hieroglyphs match the monumental art that appears on temple walls and even surpasses them in quality and clarity. Prayers, breathing exercises for protection, "negative confessions," and other rituals draw you fully into the spiritual experience. An introduction to one of the most important texts ever written, presented in visually breathtaking style.
