Publisher Description

"This is a marvelous look at our souls and their links to unseen dimensions around us through the eyes of eminent scholars and religious leaders!...a book that is highly readable, intensely thought-provoking....It's a tall order to integrate and explain belief systems and spiritual beings, but Schieding did so in a manner that was quite impressive."

-Feathered Quill Book Reviews

"A Spirit in Motion is worth the read if you have an interest in the beliefs surrounding the human soul, and the afterlife."
