Have you ever felt that there is a part of you, a spirit or soul, that is separate from your body? Have you ever wondered where that soul originated? This fascinating book suggests the powerful possibility that we all lived before -- not as different people, but as ourselves in a different place and state.

From Publishers Weekly:

Best known for his books on teaching values to children, Eyre branches off in a different direction with this exploration of a "pre-life" or "pre-mortal" existence. Gently rejecting reincarnation, Eyre proposes an alternative outlook on a soul's history that is more compatible with mainstream Christian views: we do not cycle through different bodies on earth, but enter this physical life bringing with us strengths and weaknesses inherited from an earlier stage of spiritual learning in God's presence. Although a belief in a spiritual preexistence is a major tenet of Eyre's LDS religion, he draws solely on non-Mormon sources and personal anecdotes to support his arguments, including d?j? vu experiences, biblical verses, teachings in early Christianity and ancient philosophy, and spiritual contacts with unborn spirits. He seeks to prompt a deeper spirituality in his readers, not to convert them to any specific religious beliefs. The book, whose core motto is "belief in life after life gives us hope; belief in life before life gives us worth," is not so much a flowing narrative as a collection of bullet points aimed at inciting thought. It suffers at times from repetition and shallow documentation of arguments, but succeeds as a thought-provoking proposal that there is cause to believe in life before life, and that such a belief can inspire a deeper appreciation for physical life and a greater sense of human worth in the here and now.
