A Book of the Dead: A Journey Through Death Towards the Midnight Hour and Beyond…
The issue of coming to terms with death and dying is one with which many people struggle today. This book is intended to serve those who wish to face the difficulties of this threshold and will be of immense help, if the time is taken to live with and reflect upon the verses and images, allowing them to reveal their inner meaning.
Gerhard Reisch, author and painter, approached the subject of death and dying in a very imaginative and unusual way, by inwardly following the souls of the dead on their journey across this threshold and on into the spiritual world beyond. Thus in both the words and the images in this book, death is revealed not as an end but a beginning, the gateway to a new kind of existence and to new and challenging experiences. This ‘Book of the Dead’ can be very helpful not only to the seeking individual but to everyone whose professional life may involve coming into contact with death and the feelings it arouses, such as fear of dying, grief, sorrow and bewilderment.
English text, together with original German and both French and Dutch translations for the individual verses.
