The Eclipse of Eternity: A Sociology of the Afterlife
St. Martin's Press (1996)
|Abstract||Many people still believe in life after death, but modern institutions operate as though this were the only world - eternity is now eclipsed from view in society and even in the church. This book carefully observes the eclipse - what caused it, how full is it, what are its consequences, will it last? How significant is recent interest in near-death experiences and reincarnation?|
