In this self-help book, Ms. Grimes provides her readers insight into the ever pending question is there life after death. Not speaking from any one particular point-of-view, the author instead offers answers to her readers by presenting evidence that has been given to us throughout the past century. She answers the common questions that many, if not all of us, wonder about from time-to-time and she does it in a conversational tone of voice.
I enjoyed reading this book and learning what Ms. Grimes had to offer her readers in regards to if there is life after death or not for us. I liked that this book was presented in a universal way – meaning there wasn’t one particular religious view offered in which the author was asking for you to adopt that methodology. Instead, the evidence presented was that which has been available to us for some time. Ultimately, each reader can take away how much or how little they want from this insightfully written guide.
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.
