We follow the travels of Daniel, a writer and psychiatrist much like Dr. Peck himself, through the realm of the afterlife. From his first consciousness of the "little green room" he finds himself in and his meeting with the guides who help him on his journey, this afterlife is a place both of wonder and of familiarity. For as with every journey we face, the journey through the afterlife can be easy of difficult, an adventure or a trial. Daniel meets spirits who cannot escape the bounds their earthly life set out for them, and who continue to make the afterlife their own little hell. And Daniel learns that in order to do the work of God himself, one still must live well with others. this is a timeless book of inspiration and insight from one of our most creative and distinguished thinkers.
