Unique among the many books on the market about our non-physical future is Life After Death, A New Revelation. It is not just another look at the near death experience (NDE), either as an experience of an author or as a theme from the study of many such incidents.
Rather, this book instruct us on what happens when we leave the physical world and, well, STAY gone. With clear prose, LePar and his co-authors delve into two realms of existence which follow death. One realm is for those who find it necessary to prepare to reincarnate into the physical world to gain further growth. The other is for those who have grown sufficiently to move beyond the need of another physical life. The latter is known as the God-Made Heavenly Realm which is much more than our commonly held images of harp music and streets of gold. The book weaves a fascinating tapestry of these realms and their relationship to us and our current world.
The insight into these topics comes through author LePar, who is a deep trance psychic. That identification is not simply dropped on the reader. LePar's background and the introduction to the trances were written by others. Dozens of direct quotes from the LePar trances are used as the basis for the topics discussed in the text. Aside from the material produced through the trances, LePar, when not in trance, has considerable talent analyzing the weighty matters of life and death and spiritual growth. He is masterful in his explanation of spiritual concepts and in elaborating on trance quotes leading to a clear, comprehensive picture of the subject. LePar also describes some rather surprising aspects of a near-death experience he had. An epilogue (titled "A Personal God?") draws from his NDE and is remarkably inspiring. Those passages alone are worth the time invested in reading the book.
Near death experiences are discussed early in the book, within the context of better understanding the process of death. NDEs have a similar function to the prophetic voices of old: They are meant as an advisory to humanity or, to be more dramatic, they are meant as a warning that we really should take eternity more seriously. After all, life continues.
