Product Description

Review

Anyone familiar with the existing body of literature on past lives will recognise this book as a significant contribution. Roy Stemman , editor of the magazine Life & Soul, previously named Reincarnation, has spent many years gathering together a wealth of examples of apparent past life recall. If anything, the high number of stories crammed into each chapter becomes a little overwhelming, though they do represent the vast body of evidence available on the subject. (Chapters cover rebirth within families, soul mates, group reincarnation, special talents, war victims and birthmarks, to name a few, and examples from around the world are used to illustrate each point. Hence we learn of four-year-old Uvashnee Raffan who,)

Despite the apparently endless supply of evidence for reincarnation, however, the most striking aspect of this book is its level-headed approach. Stemman goes to great lengths to balance the amazing stories with arguments opposing reincarnation. (This is a vigorously researched, scholarly book but one which is nevertheless easy to read and engrossing. Many are quick to write off belief in reincarnation as "cranky", but this book may cause some to think again.')

I bought this book, at the same time as One Soul, Many Lives - both by roy Stemman and found they were identical books. Just the covers and titles were different and there was nothing to say that they were the same. So please don't waste your money like I did by buying what you think may be two books about a similar subject. It's really a con.

As for the content, it's a bit heavy going but gets there in the end.

Roy Stemman is the editor of Life & Soul magazine (previously Reincarnation International), which has been going since 1993, so no doubt he's come across many, many stories over the years. This book is a collection of various case studies from around the world.

If you've read other books which talks about reincarnation, you're likely to have come across Shanti Devi before, amongst others. These are all in here, along with nods to other authors' research. And the thing is, this book is incredible.

You read the stories and if you think past lives is a load of rubbish, you might even be convinced that huh, there might be something to it after all. If you're already there, you'll be even more convinced after reading this.

Stories come from all over the world, and some I have heard about before. For instance, Stemman mention both Brian L Weiss's cases as well as the Cathar group reincarnation, as documented by Arthur Guirdham in the 1970s. I believe it even mentioned the story of a Swedish woman who remembered being a concentration camp survivor brought to Sweden by the Red Cross buses, which is a book I read in my teens.

This isn't a book that will go into detail about how to "do it yourself", it's just a collection of remarkable stories of past life recollections - including those that have happened (primarily in cultures where belief in reincarnation is part of everyday life) where children have insisted on being taken back to their real families in other towns, and the details that researchers have been able to verify.

It's very, very fascinating, even if you already think there's something to it. Only wish it was longer.

Bought this book to take on holiday, but was little disappointed with it.

It fails to grab your attention and is slow moving.
