Author: Alonzo Gaskill
Surely no subject has captured the attention of men and women like that of death and the life beyond. Millions have sought with Job to know, "If a man die, shall he live again?" (Job 14:14). And if there is a future state, what is its nature? How best may mortal men and women prepare for it? Indeed, death has ever remained life's most awesome mystery. In this book, representatives of several professing Christian groups address the topics of death and what lies beyond death from the vantage of their particular religious tradition.

Author: Crystal Yvonne Dixon
In this book Magdalene Mills reveals her path to creativity and spiritual development through images of her art and poetry. Using these mediums, she guides the reader through an intimate sojourn that results in her ultimate triumph over fear and adversity. On her creative path, she reconciles the pain, sorrow and desperation of lost loves, failed opportunities and the experience of growing-up in a poor, dysfunctional family. Ms. Mills provides us with a blueprint for forgiving, understanding, a strong belief in God and faith in the Universe. Each image and poem takes the reader to a new level of the self, leaving behind a positive experience where one emerges spiritually and emotionally clean. Her writings can serve as a tool for the spirit that we can all use, as we chart out own coarse and glimpse our own souls and its possibilities.

A book for all who are curious about the dwelling place of God and the angels. Intended for people looking for answers to life’s biggest questions, this little book of guidance will appeal to anyone, whether believer or non-believer, looking for a quick and easy way into the topic.

The author Sri Anil Sharma was born in Ambala, India. He graduated as an electrical engineer in 1980, after which he travelled for a period of three years throughout the Indian subcontinent, in search of the truth. Since 1993 over a period of seven years he read more than nine hundred books written and referred to by great spiritual masters, attained various siddhis, toured many countries around the world and gave lectures. This book is the outcome of his spiritual experiences and guidance received from sages and spiritual masters during deep states of meditation. However, inspite of experiencing the rising of cosmic currents in his body, having attained a heightened awareness of reality, and achieving many tasks in spirituality, like writing books and genuinely helping many aspirants in the path of spirituality, his own quest of knowing and gaining personal experience of self realisation remained unfulfilled. In the year 2000 he came across the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi, in whom he found all the answers to his spiritual quest and took him as his Sat guru. The author currently resides in Australia, works in his profession and also runs a small centre in Sydney called Sage Sri Ramana Maharshi Centre of Learning Sydney

Life, as we know it, will end. It’s not a thought that tends to occupy our minds when we are young and in full health and vigor. We take risks, some foolhardy. We live as though we were immortal. And then when we have our own children we are renewed and life is good. But we can’t look in the mirror every day without noticing subtle signs of change. We can’t lose a loved one without reflecting on the passage of time and being nagged by the question, “What is it in life that I have yet to accomplish?” Then it’s not a giant leap from asking that question about ourselves to wanting to know “What happens when I die?” Brian Stiller, author of When Life Hurts took on the task of answering this challenging question. Where is the proof that anything is going to happen after death? Why not just live life for the day, because that may be all there is? What Happens When I Die? is a journey toward understanding the nature of life after death, one that leads ultimately to the Scriptures and the promise given by God. It is a promise rooted in faith and joy. It is a promise that has everything to do with what we make of our life here on earth. What Happens When I Die? is not just about death, but about living a fulfilled, loving and caring life. The choice is ultimately ours to seek and God’s gift—or not. But the way had been prepared as this insightful and thought-provoking book affirms
