In these tales of renewal, a leading US medical scientist investigates children's experiences of past lives.
The belief that we 'survive' death in some form is central to most religions, but barely is it a topic broached by science. However, in this fascinating collection of stories, eminent scientist Jim B. Tucker M.D. reveals evidence of past life phenomena based on years of interviewing children and their families and independently verifying their statements.
There is the story of Patrick, born twelve years after his brother Kevin tragically died of cancer. Throughout his childhood, Patrick bears the physical marks of his brother's illness, but none of the actual symptoms, and has remarkable recall of his brother's short life. And the story of James from Louisiana, who, from the age of two, is convinced he was once a World War II pilot and is able to accurately relate the details of the crash that killed him.
Challenging, intriguing and ultimately life-affirming, this book provides a compelling argument for the continuation of the spirit or mind after the demise of the body.
