In the chapters between his discussion of Bridey Murphy, Allen offers a number of other very interesting cases of apparent reincarnation and, in each case, presents the arguments against reincarnation by skeptics and debunkers, after which he counters those arguments with explanations supporting the reality of reincarnation. In all, he presents some 30 arguments made by skeptics, and to each argument he effectively explains the fallacy or misunderstanding associated with the argument.
Among the cases examined is that of James Leninger, the young boy whose story of remembering a past-life as a World War II fighter pilot, was related in a book a few years ago. Unless one wants to believe that the boy's parents made up the whole story, it is a very convincing case, more so than even the Bridey Murphy story. Allen sets forth more than a dozen evidential statements by young James which were confirmed as fact and clearly lend themselves to a belief in reincarnation.
"...the evidence is overwhelming and conclusive," Allen concludes "Reincarnation is a process that does occur, at least for some people some of the time."
Even if a person already believes in reincarnation, this is a valuable read and reference book, as it concisely summarizes the arguments to counter the arguments of the skeptics. I have seen most of the arguments offered here and there, but now I have an easy reference book to go to in order to refresh my memory when my skeptical friends go on the attack.
Enjoyed it immensely.
