In modern Western culture, there is both a universal interest in and immense confusion about traditional and contemporary concepts of afterlife. New Age ideologies have combined with a general shift from dogmatic creedal religions to result in organizations that emphasize being spiritual rather than strictly religious. The result has been greater misconceptions and mutual ignorance among the different religious traditions.About the Author:
