Why an Afterlife Obviously Exists
On finishing this book, you will be convinced that death is not a dead end.
Why an Afterlife Obviously Exists is a philosophical argument demonstrating why the existence of an afterlife is beyond astronomically likely and hence empirically certain. It explains how we have every rational reason to think that people who have near-death experiences are not only telling the truth, but the book also argues that near-death experiencers are thoroughly justified in knowing that they visited the actual afterlife.

Jens Amberts has written a book unlike any other. 'Why an Afterlife Obviously Exists' argues that the testimony of near-death experiencers establishes beyond any reasonable doubt that we do survive bodily death. Furthermore, it presents an impressive logical case for why all of us should take that testimony seriously. Written in a conversational style that is easily accessible by anyone, this book is one that deserves to be read, re-read, and read again. Amberts presents arguments that you will keep pondering long after you have finished reading his book. ~ Bruce Greyson, M.D., Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry & Neurobehavioral Sciences, University of Virginia, author of , Email
Like a master attorney, Jens Amberts has marshaled an abundance of virtually irrefutable evidence in making the case for the thesis of his brilliant book, /Why an Afterlife Obviously Exists./ Basing his argument on four fundamental facts about near-death experiences (NDEs), Amberts has written a book that every serious student of NDEs, and especially skeptics, should be sure to read. On finishing it, I doubt any reader will not be convinced that death is not a dead end. ~ Kenneth Ring, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Psychology, University of Connecticut, author of /Lessons from the Light/, Email
What happens when we die has been one of humankind’s most enduring questions. /Why an Afterlife Obviously Exists/ brings a new and exciting perspective to this ancient question. Jens Amberts presents an impressive discussion of the evidence for the reality of near-death experiences (NDEs). This includes an original and creative thought experiment that is among the most compelling verification of the validity of NDEs and their consistent message of an afterlife that I have encountered. This is one book you don’t want to miss! /Why an Afterlife Obviously Exists/ is exceptionally well written and enthusiastically recommended. ~ Jeffrey Long, M.D., author of the /New York Times/ bestselling /Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences/, Email
Jens Amberts' /Why an Afterlife Obviously Exists/ is a breath of fresh air in the world of academic philosophy. He tackles a question of supreme existential importance and makes a careful and convincing case that there exists a world more comprehensive and compellingly real than the one of which we are currently aware. This book deserves not only to be widely read but to have its conclusions considered with the utmost seriousness. ~ Sharon Hewitt Rawlette, PhD, author of /The Source and Significance of Coincidences/ and contributor to the /Psychology Today/ blog, Email
Through a carefully crafted philosophical argument, Amberts documents the empirical and rational basis for his own transformation from a philosophical materialist--believing that the material world is the only reality--to a survivalist--convinced that another reality exists, one in which human consciousness continues after physical death. This book is a must-read for any truly open-minded empiricist interested in the question of the most accurate view of the cosmos. ~ Janice Miner Holden, Ed.D., editor-in-chief of /Journal of Near-Death Studies/, co-author of /The Handbook of Near-Death Experiences: Thirty Years of , Email
The fear of death has probably caused more suffering in the history of the human race than all the physical diseases combined. Jens Amberts, in /Why An Afterlife Obviously Exists/, offers compelling reasons why this fear and suffering may be exaggerated and unnecessary. Amberts’ fresh voice is subtle, profound, and reminiscent of philosopher Michele de Montaigne, who assured us, ‘If you don't know how to die, don't worry; Nature will tell you what to do on the spot, fully and adequately. She will do this job perfectly for you; don't bother your head about it.’ /Why An Afterlife Obviously Exists/ is a richly rewarding adventure in ideas. ~ Larry Dossey, MD, Author most recently of /One Mind: Why Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters/, Email
Based on scientific research and on intriguing reports of near-death experiences (NDE), this book /Why an Afterlife Obviously Exists/ gives a very nice overview and summary of what can be learned about the afterlife, or, even better, about the continuity of consciousness after the death of the body. People with an NDE are convinced that death is not the end of our consciousness, and they are all forced to change their existing worldview. Jens Amberts uses an interesting analogy to better understand and accept the conclusions that during an NDE the content of our consciousness is experienced far more real than the reality we know in the material world of everyday life. This book has been written for those open-minded readers who are genuinely interested in the possibility of the continuity of consciousness after physical death. ~ Pim van Lommel, cardiologist, NDE-researcher, author of /Consciousness Beyond Life/, Email
