Then Rebalagh is captured and taken to wife by an enemy Chieftain with whom she falls deeply in love. When war between her father and her husband again looms, she risks her life to prevent it, but it seems the only way to save the men she loves is to create a peaceful culture in a world whose gods now ensure there can never be peace.

Mikey Morgan is an advanced being who enjoys teaching in the afterlife levels. Like other advanced beings, Mikey has become concerned about the present state of life on earth, the hatred and violence, and the inability of most of us to make spiritual progress. Mikey wanted to re-accustom himself to life on earth so he could teach us through the veil, so he accepted a brief earth-lifetime that ended in 2007 at the age of 20. Flying High in Spirit is Mikey’s first book, dictated to his mother by pendulum. He begins by recounting in fascinating detail his unexpected death, his return to the afterlife levels, and his dawning recall of who he is and what his pre-birth plan had been. Mikey’s vivid account of how the afterlife levels feel to someone who has just returned, the sights and the activities, and his description of how he manages to reassure and comfort his family on earth all make for fascinating reading.

In Flying High in Spirit, Mikey shares important eternal truths in ways that are easy for us to understand. He speaks to us frankly and cheerfully about how life works, how reality works, what the afterlife is like, and how we all can make the kind of spiritual progress that he has made. He teaches us, and he snowboards. Oh, does he snowboard! One of the wonderful lessons that Mikey demonstrates is that eternal life is fun.

Mikey Morgan is unique. Few of those who have reached the sixth level of the afterlife are in contact with the earth, and fewer still have made his kind of effort to understand us before attempting to share their wisdom. Mikey is an advanced teacher who is able to relate to us as a twenty-first-century boy on the threshold of becoming a man. He is cheerful, playful, wise, and full of love. His story is unforgettable.

Roberta Grimes spent decades studying nearly 200 years of afterlife evidence and forming a detailed picture of what happens at and after death. She then discovered that two thousand years ago Jesus told us things about God, reality, death, the afterlife, human nature, and the nature of reality that perfectly match the afterlife evidence in even small details. She outlines many of these correspondences in appendices to her books The Fun of Dying (2010, 2014) and The Fun of Staying in Touch (2014).

In Liberating Jesus Roberta offers compelling evidence that the earliest Christians misunderstood the meaning and the message of Jesus. She demonstrates that all the correspondences between the Gospels and the afterlife evidence amount to nothing less than a new revelation from God. And she shows us that once we put aside the magic-thinking notion that the whole Christian Bible must be the Inspired Word of God just because the earliest Christians said it was, we at last free Jesus to bring to humankind the messages directly from God that long ago were His true life’s purpose. His promise remains as fresh today as it was two thousand years ago, and now it is confirmed by the afterlife evidence: if we will live according to the teachings of Jesus, we can create the Kingdom of God on earth.

Rex Richardson is the only child of a reclusive and eccentric multibillionaire. Having grown up on a private island whose native society is so gloriously free that its people have developed enhanced mental powers that have enabled them to live in peace and unity for four hundred years, Rex has spent the decade since 9/11 trying to adjust to American life. He sees his father's country as incapable of fostering any kind of happiness, and he worries that this outer world is going to swamp and destroy his childhood home where humanity has evolved to perfection. In an effort to protect Atlantica forever, Rex has made it his goal to mentally free and to spiritually unite all Americans as a first step toward uniting the world.

Rex begins an experiment on a twelve-thousand-acre Texas ranch to determine whether Americans living as Atlanticans live will be able to develop the powers of their minds. But when he moves his family to Texas to oversee his project, he puts a considerable strain on his marriage to a woman who had envisioned a more conventional life of wealth. This clash between incompatible cultures results in the dissolution of Rex's marriage, followed by an epic custody battle that involves three generations of his family. Into all this chaos comes Lyshann McKenzie, one of the few Americans who understands what Rex is trying to achieve. Can their blossoming love help him to resolve his differences with his family ... and at last come to terms with the modern world?

Grit helped her overcome her past.

Strength and savvy have brought her amazing success.

Now it's time for Kim to try for happiness.

She was born into fatherless poverty, raped and abandoned, and forced to make it on her own. At the start of the 1980s she began a business that in a few years' time has become an astounding nationwide success.

At twenty-nine, Kimberly Bonner is rich, and she is first-name famous for her colorful lifestyle and for her gorgeous Indy-car-driver boyfriend. She and Vic have been named by People magazine the Couple of the Eighties, even while Kim stays aloof from the world so she never can be hurt again.

Kim's self-imposed isolation comes to an end when business crises erupt around her. It is only as she struggles to deal with them that she realizes she doesn't know herself at all. She doesn't understand why she craves pain and bondage, nor why all her wealth and fame feel hollow. Even as she tries to understand who she is, Kim is frantic to save the company into which she has poured so much of her life. She is forced to turn to the half-brother she barely knows, the loyal mentor she has kept at a distance, and -- most disturbingly -- the man who sexually assaulted her when she was thirteen. At last Kim is daring to rely on others. She is growing. And she is falling in love.

Jack Richardson carries himself as though he owns the world. In reality, he is laying claim to an increasing portion of it. A thirty-six-year-old multibillionaire, he has purchased a tiny island, Atlantica, whose inhabitants enjoy a lifestyle that stands in complete opposition to Western civilization. 

Liz Lyons needs a job, and she wants to put as much distance between herself and her ex-husband as possible. When Jack offers her a teaching position in Atlantica, she jumps at the opportunity. She is more than willing to live in a primitive society for a few years if it means earning double her previous salary. Liz is immediately drawn to Jack, who appears to return her feelings despite their vast differences in wealth and upbringing. But she also is drawn to the Atlanticans' way of life, which is based on personal autonomy and deep spiritual connectedness. As she becomes more and more involved with Jack and with the Atlantican people, Liz realizes that she will need to make a choice.

Will she remain forever in the first place where she has ever truly belonged, or return to civilization with the man she loves?

The world is full of evils. I cannot bear to hear the stuck hogs squeal, nor see a horse ill-used, nor think there could be anywhere an unloved child. The differences in human station seem to me not even the greatest evil. 

When Martha Skelton finds herself falling in love with a shy young burgess named Thomas Jefferson, it feels like an inconvenience. Widowed at twenty-two, Martha has no desire to lose the independence she has gained in the wake of her husband's death. But she cannot deny her feelings indefinitely. Despite her intentions, her friendship with Thomas develops into an intense and all-consuming love. 

History casts a shadow on Martha's newfound joy. Through her father's slave and mistress, Betty Hemings, she comes to understand the true nature of slavery, an institution she has always taken for granted. As Betty's revelations tear down the walls of her ignorance, Martha begins to work with her husband to end the despicable practice forever. 

This story is essentially true. Thomas Jefferson was such an obsessive record-keeper that we know what he was doing nearly every day of his adult life, and all the public things he is quoted as saying in My Thomas come from his contemporary writings. Martha's marriage to Thomas spanned the decade from 1772 to 1782, so it put her at the center of the audacious grab at freedom that was the American Revolution. Jefferson's writings suggest that if he had not been widowed, he would have retired from politics following the war and devoted himself to finding a way to end slavery that could have truly and forever healed the separations between the races. It is hard to read Martha's story now and not think about what might have been.

Although Liz Lyons and Jack Richardson never stopped loving one another, their lives have taken them in different directions. Liz remains in Atlantica, a tiny island far removed from Western civilization, while Jack has returned to New York to look after his business interests. When Jack brings his family to the United States in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, old feelings resurface. They give their marriage another chance. 

The couple's son, Rex, doesn't adapt well to the move. Having spent the first twenty-three years of his life in a society that doesn't acknowledge even the concept of ownership, he is stunned to find himself the sole heir to a fortune in the tens of billions. He is appalled by the spiritual isolation and lack of personal autonomy at the core of American existence. 

As Rex learns to cope with his new life, he brings a fresh perspective to Jack's business affairs, and eventually to Jack's whole worldview. With Rex as the driving force, Jack begins to use his wealth to try to revitalize and restore America. Can the spiritual wounds of a bitterly divided nation be healed through the efforts of one family?

Most Americans believe that an afterlife exists, but unfortunately mainstream religions teach a generic faith-based view of it and mainstream science ignores the topic altogether. So people are hungry for concrete facts about the afterlife, and afterlife-related books are perennial best-sellers. Just this year, HarperOne published Evidence of the Afterlife – The Science of Near-Death Experiences by Jeffrey Long and Paul Perry, and Harper Collins published Heaven – Our Enduring Fascination With the Afterlife by Lisa Miller, both to much acclaim. But neither book answers the basic questions: Where is heaven, what is it like, and how does it feel to die? Nor does any of the many books about the afterlife answer three more basic questions: How is a solid afterlife possible, who will make it there and who won’t, and what are the rules that we must follow to have the best chance of getting there? The Fun of Dying offers detailed answers to all these questions and more in an easily read hundred pages. It also presents two study guides – one brief, and one much more detailed – so readers can follow the author in learning these eternal truths. It turns out that for most of us, death is the best time of our lives!

If you wonder whether death ends life, how it feels to die, or what heaven might be like, this book is for you. If you worry about a lost loved one or fret about the death of a pet, all the answers to your questions are here. And if you are afraid of death, if you worry that your life has no meaning, or if you have given up on religions, then let this book ease some of your fears while it brings new meaning to your life.

Nothing in The Fun of Dying is based on the teachings of any religion. Instead, it draws on more than a century’s worth of evidence to explain how dying feels, how it happens, and – most importantly – what comes next. Accounts of near-death experiences are just a small part of the afterlife evidence! A lot of the best death-related evidence was produced in the first half of the 20th century, and it has been ignored ever since by mainstream science and mainstream religions. When it is put together with more recent discoveries, it tells a consistent and amazing story.

The Fun of Dying is a complete account of how dying feels and what comes next. Read it, learn the truth, and apply its lessons so you can enjoy your best life forevermore.
