CSUB professor debuts new book on afterlife

What happens to us when we die? Heaven, Hell, Purgatory, nothingness? None of the above says CSUB religious studies professor Stafford Betty in a new book titled “The Afterlife Unveiled.”

Extensive research by Stafford Betty tells us that the world of the “dead” is probably very real and close by.  In this book he surveys some of the world’s richest channeled material.  What emerges is a spiritual or “astral” world of awesome beauty with an overall plan explaining not only the purpose of life over there, but ours right here.  Readers will be impressed by the orderliness, justice, and immense scale of the divine plan revealed there.  They are likely to conclude, based on these accounts, that death is not the end, but that a mighty world lies just ahead–followed by other worlds still more evolved.  If the spirits we meet here in these vivid accounts are authentic–and there is surprisingly strong evidence suggesting they are–then we will find new incentive for “growing our souls” and bettering our world.  The best of this literature might be the truest revelation of our time.

Said John Hick, author of Death and Eternal Life, philosopher of global religion:

“There can be few, if any, more important questions than what happens to us when we die.   This book contains what purport to be reports from people who have died, telling us in what conditions they live, and how they may move on from one sphere to another.   Whatever they may make of this, everyone will find it intensely interesting.”

You can pick up a copy of the book at the ‘Runner Bookstore, at Russo’s, or on Amazon.com.
