Product Description

Many years ago Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson wrote a book called "The Necromancers" which achieved considerable fame but gave a distorted view of spirit communication. On passing into the spirit world Monsignor Benson found that the views he had expressed in his book were substantially incorrect. One of his main aims was to seek to correct the wrong impression he had given in his earthly writings - so he communicated with the author who has faithfully recorded his messages. His aim was to try to remove from people's minds the fear of death by recounting his own experiences and imparting his own knowledge of the spirit world. The result is this picture of the world beyond related in considerable detail. (Stallanbooks)

There can be few people who have not at times wondered what happens after death. Most of us have preconceived ideas of heaven and hell - fostered in childhood, with little thought going towards the subject since. The church has always claimed exclusivity with such matters as the 'souls salvation', and as such, heaven is thought of as being a most difficult place to enter - only for 'the saved'.
To discover what kind of place the next world is, we must inquire of someone who lives there, and record what is said; that is what has been done in this book. The end result is a book as simple as it is sincere, as warm as it is heartfelt.
Giving one of the most comprehensive accounts of the life and conditions of the spirit world and its people, this book is rightly regarded as a classic of Spiritualist literature.
The communicator, Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson, delightfully shows us, with both humour and compassion, how many of our preconceived notions of 'the next life' are substantially incorrect. One of the great regrets from his earth life was that he too added to this general misconception by his writing The Necromancers, a book which dealt with the subject of spirit return, but which gave a distorted view of the facts. The writing of the present volume, however, has enabled Monsignor to redress his wrongs.
The countless millions of people, of whatever religion (or none), who have simply undergone the natural and normal process of 'death', find themselves to be the inheritors of a vast world: a world of both unsurpassed beauty and illimitable opportunity.
On passing to the spirit world, every person, regardless of colour or creed, will find themselves the inheritors of precisely the spiritual abode to which their earthly lives have befitted them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Has opened my mind 14 Mar 2012
By Novice
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I generally accept things without thinking too deep; that said, I am someone who believes in the afterlife. However, before reading this book, I had not seriously given thought to the actual place in which the afterlife exists or what form it takes. As a result of reading this book I feel my mind and eyes have been opened which in itself is important but for me, right now, this has happened at a very important time in my life. Recently two lovely people, very close to me, have passed and reading this book has helped me know that I most certainly could not have wished for them to continue without quality of life here on Earth when such a beautiful and kind world awaits them.

I am greatly indebted to the person who recommended this book to me and unequivocally I strongly recommend it to others wondering about the world unseen.

I have enjoyed this book thoroughly. I'm very interested in afterlife and have read many books by many mediums. This book is inspirational. Wonderful discriptions by Monsignor Benson from the Spirit world, about the Spirit world in which he now inhabits. So incredible is his passion to rectify the beliefs that he had when he was on the earth plane, about the afterlife, that he had written books on and has now discovered were so incorrect. First hand experience at it's best! Uplifting information of our true home and so comforting, showing that we have nothing to fear about "death" as we will be simply be moving to another world more alive than we could ever comprehend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life in the World Unseen 1 Feb 2008
This book is a must for those even remotely interested in the spiritual. It was written by a priest and describes in detail his life and the moment of his passing and life in the spirit world. He wrote it with the help of his friend and psychic Anthony Borgia, essentially to correct things he had written in life which he realised were wrong when he passed over. It is a book that is a true page turner and can also be used as a reference. It really tells it how it is and guess what folks....it all makes sense. Perfect and total sense. A book not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing 21 Mar 2011
I found an older version of this book by accident and read it twice it was so good. It changed the way I thought and took any fears of dying away. I believe I found this book for a reason as shortly after reading it for the second time my sister suddenly died of cancer aged 49, it got me through something I could never have dealt with had I not read this book. Unfortunately I lost it and have now replaced it with this newer version. This is a must read for everyone, if you did'nt beleive before you read it or had any doubt this will give you hope and understanding. It is without a doubt the best book I have ever read and want everyone to read it and share in the knowledge of what we all have to look forward to when we shuffle off this mortal coil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your life will never be the same again... 21 Feb 2009
There's not much more to add to the above reviews, other than that I think anyone who reads this book (and the others in the series) will never see life in the same way again. It's a must, it's an essential and I'd even go as far as it being something which should be taught in schools.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of hope 11 Feb 2005
A delightful read which inspires hope and dispels fear of the hereafter. It had me drafting mental plans for how I'd like to spend my own eternity.
