5.0 out of 5 stars Very sincere, very convincing -- and well-written, too!, September 23, 2003
This review is from: Someone Else's Yesterday: The Confederate General and Connecticut Yankee: A past Life Revealed (Paperback)
This is one of the more convincing cases for reincarnation that has come across my desk in a long time. I had already heard of Jeffrey Keene before the book came out, because he is featured in the 2002 documentary video, "In another Life: Reincarnation in America" (Gold Thread Video Productions). I was impressed with his story then, so it was a pleasure to finally be able to read the book (which came out after the video.)
Jeffrey Keene did not go searching for this experience. In fact, he was skeptical at first. He makes it clear that he did not undergo hypnotic regression (which he distrusts) but rather, the memories came to him in various spontaneous ways, beginning with a strange familiarity at the sight of a battlefield. As he describes his visits to battlefields, graveyards, and other sites, he provides the reader with well-researched historical detail. In my case, that's a good thing, since I am a not a Civil War buff and would not have made the past-life connections without the background info.
Most impressive is the uncanny physical resemblance between Keene in this life, and General Gordon in the past life. (Click on the cover photo here for an enlarged version to see for yourself.) Genetically, he is no relation to the General, but, as researchers lke Ian Stevenson have demonstrated, the soul often does re-create physical characteristics in the new body. Additional look-alike sets of photos are inside the book itself. Keene also includes some photos of firefighters he has worked with in this life, who bear a strong resemblance to Civil War figures he might have known in the past life. All in all, it's a well-written book and a very good read.
