Life Before Life: Extraordinary Research into Children's Claims of Reincarnation by Jim B Tucker
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book builds on the ground-breaking investigations into reincarnation carried out by Dr Ian Stevenson at the University of Virginia. For the past 40 years, doctors at this major American medical centre have conducted research into young children's reports of past-life memories. In Life Before Life, expert psychiatrist Dr Jim B. Tucker now tells the general public about their remarkable recent research, and the result is a fascinating and highly readable book. These children who actually remember a previous life usually begin spontaneously talking about it at the age of two or three. They may describe the life of a deceased family member, the life of a stranger, their previous family or even how they died in their previous life. These amazing accounts include: A boy in Africa who knows the names and personal details of everyone in another village without ever having been there; An American boy who believes he is the reincarnation of his own grandfather; A child who dies of a gunshot in a previous life and carries a birthmark of the same size, shape and placement in this life; British twins whose birthmarks and behaviour closely resembled their deceased older sisters
