Reincarnation and Karma, An Introduction

What is the meaning of life? As human beings, we cannot avoid this most basic question of earthly existence. Is consciousness simply an accident of the universe, as modern science would claim? On the other hand, many established religions suggest that life is a one-time experience, culminating in ‘eternal life’ in heaven or some kind of purgatory or hell. But how could this be equitable, given people’s vastly differing life circumstances? As a response to such questions, the author discusses the concept of reincarnation – the development of individual souls over multiple lifetimes. She examines the idea of fate in relation to one’s occupation. What is more important: a well-paid career or finding one’s true vocation? Are our ‘innate’ talents and abilities the result of a gene-lottery at conception, or could they be related to pre-birth existence – to our own intentions for our forthcoming life on earth? The notion of reincarnation is a pre­requisite for understanding one’s personal destiny or karma – a personal ‘life plan’ created before our incarnation on earth. Through such ideas, the consciousness of one’s immortal soul-core – our inner being, that exists both before birth and after death – can be awoken. The transcript of this enlightening talk is a stimulating introduction to contemporary perspectives on the ancient teaching of reincarnation and karma.

It's obvious from the bookshelves and the big screen that heaven is on everyone's mind. All of us long to know what life after death will be like. Bestselling author John Burke is no exception. For decades, he has been studying accounts of people who have had near-death experiences (NDEs). While not every detail of individual NDEs correlate with Scripture, Burke shows how the common experiences shared by thousands of survivors clearly point to the God of the Bible and the exhilarating picture of heaven he promises. Imagine Heaven is an inspirational journey through the Bible's picture of heaven, colored in with the real-life stories of heaven's wonders. Burke compares gripping stories of NDEs to what Scripture says about our biggest questions of heaven: Will I be myself? Will I see friends and loved ones? What will it look like? What is God like? What will we do forever? What about children and pets? This book will propel readers into an experience that will forever change their view of the life to come and the way they live life today. It also tackles the tough questions of heavenly reward and hellish NDEs. Anyone interested in NDEs or longing to imagine heaven more clearly will enjoy this fascinating and hope-filled book.

Dramatic Testimonies of Near-death Experiences and VisionsVoices from the Edge of Eternity is a compilation of the words and experiences of people both famous and obscure just before their deaths. Young and old, great and small, saint and sinner—these testimonies confirm the biblical doctrines of life after death, judgment for the nonbeliever, and eternal life for those who have accepted Christ as Savior. Included are the experiences of a formidable array of witnesses, such as Martin Luther, Voltaire, John Wesley, Joan of Arc, Thomas Paine, Charles Darwin, Queen Elizabeth I, John Calvin, Napoleon Bonaparte, Peter the Great, and many more. The agreement among the accounts is remarkable in this fascinating collection of thoughts and experiences that shed light on the life that awaits us after death.

"What happens when we die? This is one of humankind’s most important questions. Living Beyond brings a fresh and exciting perspective to this enduring question. Ivan Rudolph shares dramatic evidence supporting near-death experiences. This book is expertly written, remarkably easy to read, and enthusiastically recommended." — Jeffrey Long, M.D., founder of the Near Death Experiences Research Foundation; author of the New York Times bestseller, Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences. What are Near Death Experiences (NDEs) and how do they fit in with Christianity? For over 40 years, the author, Ivan Rudolph, has been conducting interviews, studying hundreds of accounts and now has clarity about this mysterious phenomenon. The truth is surprising, exciting, and ultimately relevant for everyone. Did you know that there are at least 16 million Americans who have had an NDE, including celebrities like Goldie Hawn, Sharon Stone, Elizabeth Taylor, Nikki Sixx, Burt Reynolds, and many others? Did you know that they are a part of a huge family of 350 million "returnees" alive today? The problem is, many returnees remain confused about their experience. They fear they will never feel normal again and seeking empathy seems impossible from loved ones that don't understand. This is not only a guide to help the confused, traumatized and, sometimes, depressed returnees incorporate their experiences successfully back into their relationships and life on earth. The thoroughly research text will help families and loved ones to provide support and understand what the returnee is going through. “Very well presented, with substantial, solid evidence; well-explained point by point. From an Orthodox viewpoint its theology is sound.” —Father John D’Alton, Orthodox Priest
