Dr. Eddy, renowned in the field of philosophy and religion in popular vein, with his personal testimonial to his belief in a continuation of life after death and in human psychic powers. The book is directed to the uninitiated in psychic matters, and written with an almost defensive awareness of the unpopularity of his beliefs. He introduces his readers to the ""Cloud of Witnesses"" from history who have displayed psychic tendencies,-the Greek oracles, St. Paul, Joan of Arc- on to mediums of the author's own acquaintance. He gives intimate glimpses behind the scenes of the Duke University- psychic experiments and verbatim notes from seances in which he has taken part. These make up the bulk of the book; the tone is devout and Christian in orientation. Aside from detailed glimpses into the next world he includes discussions and evidences of telepathy, psychic cures, clairvoyance, the transplanting of an object by psychic means. For those with a budding interest in the supernatural, this book is a natural. Some borderline sceptics may become initiates. There is a reassuring lack of hokus pocus and a good deal of evidence.
