Sequel Follows Popular Near-Death Experience (NDE) Book
Released Nov. 8: Hardcover edition "Proof of the Afterlife 2 - The Conversation Continues" by Bro. Gary Joseph
LOS ANGELES, November 8, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Books recounting near-death experiences (NDE) fascinate readers of all persuasions, and Brother Gary Joseph’s first title, Proof of the Afterlife (2010, 200 pages), is no exception.
Now his newly published sequel takes readers on a journey of hope and inspiration with 200 additional, never-before-seen journal entries chronicling God-encounters and chance meetings with angels along with visions, dreams and messages from the other side.
Recounting his near-death experience in 2005 and the encounters that have continued weekly since then, Proof of the Afterlife 2: The Conversation Continues (2017, 400 pages) shares Brother Joseph’s message of hope and certainty that there is life after death and – drumroll, please – that this life should be filled with love, mercy and forgiveness.
The success of Brother Joseph’s first book allowed him to start an IRS 501 (c) nonprofit organization to serve the poorest of the poor, 80,000-plus living under bridges, in riverbed bottoms, on city streets, and in alleyways in southern California. Today, 200 volunteers with Servants of the Father of Mercy regularly deliver clean socks, sneakers, blankets, jackets, food, water, hygiene kits, rosaries, Bibles, love, hugs, and more to those in need.
Brother Joseph explains, “With all proceeds from Proof of the Afterlife 2 going to Servants of the Father of Mercy, this is the only NDE book in the publishing world that gives 100 percent of book revenues to the homeless.”
Filled with personal stories, anecdotes, and ruminations on spirituality and the importance of connections, Proof of the Afterlife 2 offers encouragement to anyone struggling with life challenges such as loss of a loved one, terminal illness, relationships, death and dying.
Brother Joseph explains, “Readers will discover in this new book the joy of knowing that God the Father is real, we are His children and loves each one of us very much.”
“For 30 minutes, Gary Joseph was dead. Proof of the Afterlife is a Christian and devotional tale as Brother Gary Joseph offers his own testimony to the existence of the afterlife…Of metaphysical and Christian interest, Proof of the Afterlife is very much worth considering for anyone looking for tales of real people's brushes with the afterlife.” - The Midwest Book Review, 5 Stars
