There is a growing interest in subjects associated with death, things such as spiritism, life beyond the grave, psychic communication with the dead, astral projection as well as a variety of occult practices, though millions of people who are drawn into their orbits fail to get to grips with the matter of death itself. Yet death is inescapable, death is no respecter of persons. It comes to young and old, rich and poor, good and bad, educated and ignorant. It knows no colour bar and runs no means test. From kings to commoners, all must eventually bow to it. There can be no denying that death is the ultimate reality for every human being. That being the case, the only sane approach is to face it honestly, examine it carefully and prepare for it wisely. This booklet has been written to help you do all three of those things, guided not by speculation or trying to make sense of hundreds of human ideas, but by the clear light of the Bible, the living and abiding word of God (1 Peter 1:23).
