Mystery of Reincarnation: The Evidence & Analysis of Rebirth

Front Cover
Llewellyn Publications, 2005 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 329 pages
In 1952, an American housewife under hypnosis recalled living a previous life in eighteenth century Ireland as Bridey Murphy. This case became widely publicized and sparked a Western interest in reincarnation that continues today. With arguments supporting and debunking the validity of the famous Bridey Murphy case and the plausibility of rebirth, how can one intelligently decide if reincarnation is fantasy or truth?

Examining the debate from viewpoints of science, religion, psychology, and logic, J. Allan Danelek helps readers understand this controversial issue from all sides. He takes a discerning look at past life regression, scientific explanations, common religious/philosophical objections, and reincarnationist concepts in Gnostic Christianity. Danelek also poses theories that explain the mechanical process and purpose of rebirth.
