The Modern Book of the Dead with Ptolemy Tompkins

New Consciousness Review

May 02 2012

Ptolemy Tompkins examines how the different spiritual traditions across the millennia have viewed death and the afterlife in his latest book, The Modern Book of the Dead. He discusses the common elements of ancient and traditional beliefs as well as the results of near death experiences, which taken together present an enormously convincing and encouraging argument for the continuance of life after death. Ptolemy says that this time is “one where all the formerly separate spiritual traditions are crashing into one another, creating a situation in which all the members of all the world’s faiths are being called upon to rewrite themselves WITHOUT compromising their core integrity.” He offers much food for thought.
