About the Book

The book shows an afterlife that is real and substantial. In this afterlife, the spiritual bodies are very much like the natural bodies, except that the spiritual bodies are in perfect shape. Life in the afterlife is, at least superficially, very much like life on Earth. People in the Spiritual World live in real places: beautiful cities or country locations in Heaven, noisome slums in Hell. People there work, like on Earth; willingly and joyously in Heaven, not so in Hell, and also enjoy time off from work, which are marvelous in Heaven and within strict limits somewhat enjoyable in Hell. In the Spiritual World, time and space function differently, being “fluid” and connected to our thoughts and emotions, deception is nearly impossible, and the economy is a moneyless one.
