This week I am talking to Michael Prescott about his book ‘The Far Horizon: Perspectives on Life Beyond Death’.
Over the past century and a half, a wealth of evidence has emerged that is consistent, at least, with the hypothesis of life after death.
• Near-death experiences
• Deathbed visions
• Past-life memories, and memories of a between-lives state.
Yet even those who are inclined to take this evidence seriously may struggle to make sense of it. How can the idea of an afterlife be integrated into our everyday experience? How can we connect the seemingly nebulous notion of postmortem survival with the hard, tangible reality of life on earth?
Through metaphors, images, and analogies—illustrated with dozens of documented cases drawn from the literature of parapsychology—this book suggests ways of looking at life beyond death, not as a baffling anomaly, but as a logical extension of our experience of reality here and now.
The hope is that we can learn to see reports of an afterlife as something more than mere ghost stories … and to sharpen the focus of our gaze on “The Far Horizon.”
After twenty years in traditional publishing, Michael Prescott found himself out of work, his career apparently over. On a whim, he began releasing his older titles and some new novels in ebook form. Much to his surprise, his books landed on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists, finding a wide new audience.
