Secrets from Beyond the Grave by Perry Stone
Have you ever wondered what happens after you die?
In Secrets from Beyond the Grave, Perry Stone uses a blend of Bible knowledge, prophecy, and spiritual insight in an attempt to answer that question and many others concerning death and what comes after.
Perry Stone touches upon a variety of subjects in approximately 241 pages (paperback), including the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle, Stonehenge, wormholes, multi-dimensions, near-death experiences, and so on. Stone not only gives his insight on these subjects, but approaches them by offering different viewpoints and possibilities, and narrowing them down by using evidence from the Bible.
Throughout the book, it’s clear that Stone has done his homework—the amount of research that went into this book is astounding. He brings a fresh, well-written perspective to things I’ve heard before, new (to me) facts that affirms what I already knew, answers to questions I’ve struggled with, and intriguing evidence about things I never really thought about before reading this book.
I thoroughly enjoyed Secrets from Beyond the Grave, especially when Stone discusses the Bermuda Triangle and the nine areas that resemble the same strangeness, and the stories he relates of people who have had a near-death experience. Though sometimes technical and scientific, Stone’s book is easy to understand and filled with a lot of fascinating ideas that are backed up by scripture. It’s well-organized with headings and subheadings; however, it sometimes felt like the author was jumping around – giving more details about something that he discussed earlier in the book – or being a little repetitive (which can be good if you’ve forgotten something you read in a previous chapter). Also, while there’s a lot of Biblical evidence, there’s still a bit of speculation within the pages of this book. Thankfully, the author is quick to affirm when something is just that—speculation.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is curious about the mysteries of life and death. It’s really not as ominous as it sounds. :)
