Book Review: Worth the Effort

Like the title says, the latest book I read is well worth the effort. And, it is effort to read the book, digest the content, and then talk about its substance with understanding.

I'm a huge D'Souza fan. Huge. However, this isn't a curl-up-before-bed-and-read-a-page-or-two-until-you-get-sleepy kind of book. You have to be ready to think. And you have to be ready to read a sentence several times before you actually get what it's saying. A handy dictionary may be useful too.

So, if that into hasn't scared you off, I recommend Life After Death: The Evidence, by Dinesh D'Souza.

The most compelling aspect of this book is D'Souza's ability to lay out a clear and logical argument for life after death, without basing his logic solely on Scripture. Know someone that is Buddhist? Hindu? Pantheist? Atheist? D'Souza evaluates the philosophy and doctrine of various religious groups and shows where each falls short regarding life after death.

This is a good read for someone looking for a fair discussion on life after death - beyond simply providing verse after verse as the only source of evidence.
