About the Book

Life. Death. Life.
Not everyone who visits the spirit world stays there. The Magnificent World of Spirits: Eyewitness Accounts of Where We Go When We Die, gives fascinating glimpses of life beyond the veil by people who visited the spirit world during the early years of the LDS Church.
Filled with stories of insight and inspiration, The Magnificent World of Spirits is a stirring book that combines documented personal experiences with scripture, commentary, and quotes from latter-day prophets and other leaders. This book will bring you peace as you come to understand what awaits on the other side of the veil. After reading this book, you will never think of life—or death—in the same way.

As a child, I grew up fearing death, but as I grew older, that fear faded. And once I came to understand God's plan for us, I became fascinated by the personal accounts of others of the the spirit world during their own near death experiences. Marlene Bateman Sullivan's book sheds so much light on death by sharing with the reader what others have experienced after leaving the body and coming back. The book brings so much peace and hope, two things that are greatly needed at a time when the world is so troubled. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
