Introduction

This book presents an objective, thoughtful and practical explanation of the often-complicated subjects of death and afterlife. Offering a clear, concise and comparative overview of the teachings and the death beliefs of 19 different religions, this popular book will be of enormous value to all readers who would like to obtain a better understanding of the various ways in which different faiths understand death and what happens afterward. Unlike many books on the subject of religious beliefs, the discourse here is refreshingly objective and entirely non-proselytizing. Furthermore, each chapter is written by a different expert or scholar who is internationally recognized as an authority on a particular faith. This book will be welcomed by theologians, healthcare professionals, clergy and chaplains of all religious traditions, teachers and students of comparative religion and death and dying, social workers, grief and pastoral counselors and funeral directors.
