This is the first comprehensive and systematic evaluation of reincarnation and Karma in any language. Renowned philosopher Paul Edwards exposes the many flaws in the arguments supporting the belief in reincarnation and the so-called Law of Karma. He also covers the alleged evidence in support of reincarnation, including child prodigies, deja vu experiences, hypnotic regressions, and "reincarnation memories." Finally, he discusses in some detail the claims of the leading figures in the recent immortality movement, in particular Elisabeth Kuebler-Ross, Raymond Moody, and Dr. Stanislov Grof. Edwards' wit and clarity make this a fascinating, accessible, and enjoyable work.

This is an amazing book that I have read only a few months after writing about the understanding I was given from the universal source of knowledge (God) that we do comeback not in physical form but in entity (spiritual) (soul) form. In fact, we choose the very lives we enter. The only thing of our parents are our physical outer selves. We are allowed to come back to experience that which we have not yet experienced in an effort to gain in our understanding and therfore our connection to our Creator. The end result being eternal spiritual maturity with God.
