What Happens When We Die?: A Study of Life after Deathby George A Hover
“What Happens When I Die? A Study of Life After Death” explores a variety of personal experiences associated with life after death. It begins with the real experiences that participants bring to the study. What do they think? What have they heard? What has been their experience? What sense does any of it make? The study looks at reports of near-death experiences, death-bed visions, out-of-body experiences, apparitions, reincarnation, and after death communications, and explores them in light of what the Bible and Christian tradition teach about life after death. Each chapter offers opportunities to discuss and reflect upon a particular kind of life after death experience and ways the Bible and Christian faith can help people as they deal with deep questions about the meaning of life and of death. What does our Christian faith say, and what does it not say? The overall goal of the study is to lead participants toward a transforming encounter with Christ that offers hope and life in the face of death.
