The book is not intended as a polemic but rather as an invitation to an inward journey. . . . No other single source approaches this in scope of contents. --Choice Magazine, American Library Association
I read every page of this magnificent book. It is a superb piece of work. Easily the finest and most comprehensive on this subject. --Rev. Leslie D. Weatherhead, former President of the Methodist Conference of Great Britain

They all know that they have lived before.
In my early twenties, I collected and read practically every book available on the subject of reincarnation.
This Phoenix Fire Mystery book is without a doubt the BEST book on the subject. If you don't know anything about reincarnation, if you want an introduction to the subject, or if you want a comprehensive overview of the subject throughout history, READ THIS BOOK.
It's a real page-turner.
The writing is so clear, the content so spell-binding and the consequences so mind-boggling I was profoundly immersed in it for weeks.
Sorry Amazon, this one I'll keep forever..to start re-reading soon!
I would suggest this book to anyone interested in reincarnation and the history of the idea worldwide, but also for those who suffer because past life memories are breaking through in their dreams and meditations.This goes particularly for the those who happen to be Christians and remember past lives. You don't have to leave Jesus Christ nor forsake your trust in the Father, to believe. It is the Churches that demand orthodoxy that are the problem. Instead, read Origen and the Gnostics, especially what is known about the Cathar Christians who willingly suffered death instead of recanting.There were Christian communities that did believe.
It isn't easy, even today, to be in the West and know that this isn't your first life. It was harder in 1979 but knowing the immortality of my own soul made me a stronger person and I do not regret my insights. Once you read the words of people who believed -no, KNEW that they had lived before, you will know you walk in good company and you are not alone. It is also a book full of great prose and soaring poetry, enjoy!
The soul is immortal and does not die.
As I opened the hard cover and leafed through the thin, onion-skin-like pages, I was drawn into what felt like the adventure of lifetime, of exploration and discovery. What a brilliant and lovingly selected collection of writings. Struggling plenty with this lifetime, I've not engaged deeply in past ones, figuring if I'm dealing with it now, I'm dealing with it now. But this is no ya-ya, new age, Cloud 9 excuse for who we are, it is not only a scholarly, contemplative, and thorough approach to the subject of reincarnation through a wide range of voices, but more so, a study of what is precious in Man, and the Infinite nature of Life as it IS, expressing Itself in endless variety and color over eternity.
This is the kind of remedy to have near-by, especially on dark sleepless nights, it is uplifting and inspiring.
