Where did the idea of reincarnation come from? Why do some people find the teaching so satisfying? Is it true that some individuals can remember past lives? Do we find the idea of reincarnation in the Bible? Does it have a place in modern psychology? What did C. G. Jung have to say about it? What is the soul? Does psychology have any insights into the reality of the soul? Is reincarnation the soul's proper destiny? And if not, what then is? The author explores these questions, and much more, in this thoughtful and non-polemical overview of a subject that has fascinated humanity for centuries.
