New Books We Recommend

Here are some new books you might find of interest. Enjoy discovering the ones that have meaning for you!

Human Interaction with the Divine, the Sacred and the Deceased: Psychological, Scientific and Theological Perspectives

Edited by Thomas G. Plante and Gary E. Schwartz

People have been trying to connect and communicate with the divine and with the deceased since the dawn of time. This volume provides psychological and multidisciplinary perspectives on this phenomenon as well as recent research findings. Articles by: Patricia Pearson, E. Anne Richards, Catherine Wolff, Larry Dossey, Eben Alexander, Hasan Awan, Carrie York Al-Karam, Crystal Park, and Julie Exline among others.

This powerful, inspiring and important volume is one of the most comprehensive treatments to date of the afterlife, the nature of the divine, and communication with the dead. Believers and skeptics alike – and no matter where one falls on the religious/spiritual/agnostic/atheist spectrum – will benefit from the insights and findings contained in these chapters.
- Valerie A. Abrahamsen, ThD, author of Paranormal: A New Testament Scholar Looks at the Afterlife

The book is likely to become a classic in the field of science, religion, and spirituality.
-Harold G. Koenig, MD, Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences and Director, Center for Spirituality, Theology and Health, Duke University Medical Center

A Quest for Wisdom: Inspiring Purpose on the Path of Life

By David Lorimer

Events of the last few decades have revealed an alarming decline of wisdom from the mainstream discussion, calling into question any claims of human progress. Enter David Lorimer with his voluminous knowledge of modern science and spirituality, and his heartfelt reflections on an optimistic reverence for life. This book is a gift to humanity, perfectly attuned to the apparent challenges that will energize our awakening into lives rich with purpose and meaning!
- Eben Alexander, MD, neurosurgeon and author of Proof Heaven and Living in a Mindful Universe

What a wonderful read this collection of essays is from David Lorimer, who has been a curator of seminal thinkers for nearly four decades. Well organised, broad ranging, and filled with penetrating insights, this book is a tour of great minds by a great mind. Highly recommended.
- Christopher Bache, PhD, professor and author of Diamonds from Heaven

The Mysteries of Reality: Dialogues with Visionary Scientists

By Gayle Kimball

In this timely, far reaching and deeply insightful trilogy, the visionary clear-sign and wisdom of 65 leading-edge scientists, [presented] in their own testimonies, are remarkably synergized…[to] reveal a visionary science seeing beyond a material worldview, based ultimately on the oneness of all creation and the naturalizing of non-local awareness and supernormal phenomena.
- Jude Currivan, PhD, cosmologist, healer, futurist, author of The Cosmic Hologram

How often are we privileged to enter the minds and hearts of visionary scientists working at the cutting edge of exploration? Dr. Kimball offers this gift to all of us, including the scientists who participated in the dialogues that deserve to be celebrated and widely read.
- Gary E. Schwartz, PhD, Director of the Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health, University of Arizona, and author of Super Synchronicity

A fascinating book that helps readers see the underlying thought processes of scientists who are expanding our understanding of reality and the nature of consciousness itself.
- Marjorie Woollacott, PhD, President, The Academy for Advancement of Postmaterialist Sciences

No One Really Dies: 25 Reasons to Believe in an Afterlife

By Michael Tymn

This book weaves together high-quality research reporting and great story-telling. The overall impact on the reader will be as Tymn intended: close to certain conviction that we survive death. Thousands of writers, most of them religious, have made this their mission, but Tymn is not religious. He is a consciousness researcher. There is no one living who has a wider and deeper knowledge of the paranormal evidence he covers and no one who presents it more appealingly.
- Stafford Betty, Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies, CalState Bakersfield, author of The Afterlife Therapist

There are many reasons to accept the possibility of an afterlife and the survival of consciousness. Author Michael Tymn presents an intriguing two dozen in this wildly eclectic, intellectually and emotionally powerful, compendium. A veteran journalist, and nationally recognized expert on the survival question, Tymn pulls his evidence from both expected and surprising sources, forcing you to ponder some strange facts along the way. Readers get their money’s worth -- it’s entertaining, encyclopedic and at times mind-blowing. We’re all headed for the grave – but is that all? Tymn makes a strong case for something more.
- Michael Schmicker, investigative journalist, author of Best Evidence and The Gift
