And Life Goes On... (André Luiz collection)

And Life Goes On
by Francisco Xavier

Book description: This inspirational novel by André Luiz, physician and poet, who writes through the pen of F. C. Xavier, gently awakens us to the rich meaning of life, friendship, and love. In it, we find that life is a journey on which we add to and recreate our innermost selves--in effect designing our own path toward the goal of love each of us seeks. This is a true story that illuminates life. In Evelyn's courage you will discover the force of faith, and traces of the invisible design that guides every person's return to love.

In this partnership, Andre Luiz acts as a reporter on conditions in the spirit world, revealing details of its life, people, places, and organization. He does so through the lens of his reflections on his own after-death experience, and his struggles to make sense of his new reality.

Samba In The Night:
Spiritism In Brazil

by David J. Hess

Hess, an anthropologist, takes us on a spiritual journey through Brazil's eclectic mystical religions. He covers Spiritism, Kardecism, Umbanda, Candomble and other alternative religions, some with roots in Africa, others of more recent vintage. He emphasizes how race and social class are reflected in the sectarian divisions among these various groups. He also writes of his own personal spiritual search, and of his encounters with such startling phenomena as exorcism, the removal of cysts by psychic surgery, spirit mediums and poltergeists.
