MEDIA ADVISORY, June 26 /Christian Newswire/ -- Born from our culture's preoccupation and fear of death, the obsession with the supernatural and afterlife is everywhere in society today. From the "Twilight" phenomenon to the popular television shows of "Lost" and "Medium" to the blockbuster "90 Minutes in Heaven" book, the fascination with this topic is seemingly endless.

But with so many differing--and even contradictory--answers and experiences, who and what can people believe really believe as the truth?

Seeing a deeper need in this insatiable appetite for the supernatural, bestselling author and popular apologist Dr. James Garlow helps readers sort out the fact from the fiction in "Heaven and the Afterlife" (Bethany House/Baker Publishing Group; July). Based on years of biblical study and first-hand experiences as a teacher and pastor, he gives straightforward answers to the confusing and sometimes troubling issues of heaven, hell, ghosts, angels, near-death experiences, and much more.

Written in a candid and easy-to-understand way, "Heaven and the Afterlife" is a trustworthy examination of the world beyond this life. In its pages readers will find amazing first-person stories of supernatural experiences, accounts from the Bible, testimonies, theories, and also what some of the world's religions believe on the subject.

Speaking not only to Christians, Garlow makes the information accessible to anyone looking for simple answers to the fascinating subject of the world beyond this life.
