Why We Live After Death is one of those rare books that encapsulates deep and far-ranging ideas with an articulate and engaging style. Austrian-born Richard Steinpach was an attorney by profession; a seeker-after-truth by inclination and temperament. From 1979 until shortly before his death in 1992, Dr. Steinpach delivered hundreds of lectures throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
This book is the text of one of those lectures, translated from the German under the auspices of the international Grail Foundation. Dr. Steinpach begins with the work of modern thanatologists, whose researches have resulted in the documentation of numerous "near-death" experiences: all of which bear a remarkable similarity to one another, despite the varied backgrounds of respondents or the differing theories of researchers.
From there, Dr. Steinpach steps out into the unexplored dimensions, applying Natural Law to eternal questions, to show how we continue to develop after death. Basing his conclusions on the spiritual classic, In the Light of Truth: The Grail Message, by Abd-ru-shin, Dr. Steinpach discusses three levels of our being--the material body, the astral body, and the ethereal body or "soul," showing how they interact in life-and how they separate in death.
This wise and inspiring book is a joy to read, with a translation that does justice to the text, rendering from German into English with a grace and clarity that makes the conclusion resonate with all that has gone before:
"I hope I have succeeded in opening your eyes at least to a very small but extremely important section of the vitality of this Creation, and, at the same time, also to the vastness of our existence. Although we began with death we end with life, but with, I hope, a more conscious life."

Why We Live After Death accomplishes what no other book on life after death does: Steinpach takes the basic Laws of Nature and applies them to the ethereal realm. By doing so, he demystifies the world beyond, and opens the door to a fuller understanding of the totality of our existence. Why We Live After Death makes it possible for readers to answer the eternal question, "What is the meaning of life?"From the Back Cover:
"This book picks up where Elisabeth Kubler-Ross' On Death and Dying leave off. Richard Steinpach takes results from science and logically expands them to levels hitherto unknown: he clearly has access to a higher wisdom." Dr. Friedbert Karger, Plasmaphysicist
Max-Planck Institute, Munich "Steinpach takes the basic Laws of Nature, and applies them to the ethereal realm. By doing so, he demystifies the world beyond."
Tom Kay, Dear Amy: Making Sense of the Voyage of the Soul, and When the Comet Runs Accounts of people who had clinically "died" and then been brought back to life are no longer considered fantasy: they have been scientifically proven. However, most writings about life and death have simply reported such accounts and given statistical data. Richard Steinpach's work goes much further: by applying the basic Laws of Nature, he explains how we continue to develop after physical death. Why We Live After Death opens the door to a fuller understanding of the totality of our existence, and makes it possible for readers to answer the eternal question, "What is the meaning of life?" "If we go to the root of the matter, it is our concept of death that decides our answers to all the questions which life poses."
late Secretary-General of the United Nations
