Death and Rebirth, by Lee Woofenden

Here is a book that I wrote in 1995 when I was in seminary, and finally got into print a decade later in 2005:


Death and Rebirth

From Near-Death Experiences to Eternal Life

by Lee Woofenden

What happens when we die?

And what difference does it make here and now?

Our journey into the afterlife is no longer a mystery. Thousands of people who nearly died have experienced its early stages and come back to tell us about it. And in his spiritual classic Heaven and Hell, Emanuel Swedenborg provided a detailed account of what happens to us after death.

In Death and Rebirth, Lee Woofenden draws on both of these sources to offer a clear picture of what it is like to die, and of the path we travel afterward to reach our eternal home. He also shows how the various stages of our after-death journey provide a map and compass for our journey of spiritual rebirth right here in the material world.

 “Death’s deeper meaning is re-awakening and continued life.”

Note: Death and Rebirth is currently out of print. I have therefore posted it serially on Spiritual Insights for Everyday LifeYou can read it starting here: “Death and Rebirth: Introduction.”



Lee Woofenden is an ordained minister, writer, editor, translator, and teacher. He enjoys taking spiritual insights from the Bible and the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg and putting them into plain English as guides for everyday life.
