The Life Beyond the Veil - a Compilation by G. Vale Owen

The Life Beyond the Veil contains a series of communications from various personalities "on the other side," received and written down by the Rev. G. Vale Owen, Vicar of Orford, Lancashire. It was first published as four separate books: The Lowlands of Heaven (1920), The Highlands of Heaven (1920), The Ministry of Heaven (1921), and The Battalions of Heaven (1921). This volume combines all four works, and includes revised and standardized introductory pages.

As described by Editor H. W. Engholm in his introduction to Book I, The Life Beyond the Veil brings us "face to face with a Spiritual Universe of unimaginable immensity and grandeur, with sphere upon sphere of the realms of light which stretch away into infinity. We are told that those who have passed from our earth life inhabit the nearer spheres, amid surroundings not wholly dissimilar from those they have known in this world; that at death we shall enter the sphere for which our spiritual development fits us. There is to be no sudden change in our personality. We shall not be plunged into forgetfulness. A human being is not transformed into another being. . . . So small a thing is the change which we call death . . . that many do not realize it. They have to be taught that they are in another world, the world of reunion. . . ."

Books II, III and IV cover a wider range than the first book, more fully explaining the afterlife and giving, in H.W.E.’s words, "a little more of those ‘many things’ designed to broaden our vision, strengthen our faith, and help us to realize more fully the wonderful things which God has in store for all those that love Him."

"Is it subversive of old beliefs? A thousand times No. It broadens them, it defines them, it beautifies them, it fills in the empty voids which have bewildered us . . . it is infinitely reassuring and illuminating."—Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

About the Author

Rev. G. Vale Owen (1869-1931)was a British clergyman and convert of Spiritualism. Born in Birmingham and educated there at the Midland Institute and Queen's College, he was ordained in the Church of England. After curacies at Seaforth, Fairfield and Liverpool, he became vicar of Orford, New Warrington. Here he created a new church and worked for twenty years. After some psychic experiences Owen developed automatic writing, and received, from high spirits, an account of life after death and further philosophical teachings. After Lord Northcliffe published the scripts in his newspaper, the Weekly Dispatch, Owen was forced out of ministry by the Church authorities. He resigned his vicarage and went on a lecture tour in America and in England, eventually settling in a pastorate of a Spiritualist congregation in London. Through 1920, he authored a number of books about his new faith, his most notable being The Life Beyond the Veil.
