Description

The subject of reincarnation is one of the most misunderstood in the poplar imagination. When we turn to our own religious traditions for further understanding, we often encounter total rejection of the idea.

If we were given a chance, however, to explore the history of our own religions, we might be surprised to find that they pose no barrier to the acceptance of reincarnation. Steven Rosen gives readers just this chance. He guides them through the history of the world’s religions, revealing their teachings as consistent with the concept of reincarnation.

REVIEWS

Clears up many myths and stereotypes and presents in a concise form the many types of reincarnationist thought found in the major world religions…a nice small volume, which will be effective in educating students and public readers alike.
-Dr Guy L Beck, Dept of Religious Studies, Loyola University

Anyone who reads this book will understand more clearly the nature and purpose of their own journey through life and death.
-Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, PhD, Spiritual Director, Himalayan Institute

This book is a thorough discourse on the science of reincarnation, and a most valuable book for any person who desires to know who they are, why things happen to them and what they can do to ensure a better life in the present and the future.
-Terry Cole-Whittaker, DD, New York Times listed best-selling author, How to Have More in a Have Not World
