Book Reviews for Our Magnificent Afterlife
Many have forgotten that we are spirit, temporarily inhabiting human form.
Award-winning author Lundberg follows up Unifying Truths of the World’s Religions with a well-researched and thoroughly referenced text that instills belief in the earthly bodies governed by the fear of the unknown. Lundberg tackles complex concepts and comprehensively unpacks them to better facilitate audience understanding.
As on earth, the afterlife has a series of focal points: free will, knowledge, love, purpose, and justice. In particular, the central location is Summerland, akin to the Garden of Eden and described as the midpoint between earth and the true heaven. Lundberg’s use of Summerland imagery, punctuated by the grandeur of cathedrals and the eternally-flowing, spiritual energy of water is captivating.
The afterlife is multifaceted, both ornate and structured for the soul body to shed itself of its attachments and embrace its divine version, liberated from all illness and disabilities. As the souls complete the life review process, where the focus is on the intent of one’s actions rather than the action itself, they become more cognizant and empathetic to their negative actions on earth. The author’s description of “like attracts like” in reference to purgatory and hell is just as engaging: though the cruel will get a chance to cleanse, the cleanse would consist of feeling the same pain they wreaked upon others.
Perhaps the most intriguing element of Lundberg’s work is the notion of chakras and multiple deaths, beginning with the physical body, then the vehicle of vitality, and finally the death of the soul body that will ultimately provide entry to the higher realms of divinity. Overall, Lundberg pulls from a myriad of resources, including those who have had near-death experiences to help audiences embrace their fear of the unknown. This book, by its very nature and depth, will spark thought-provoking conversations that make it a surefire must read.

“A big and comprehensive work…a major undertaking reflecting a great deal of research.” –Professor Stafford Betty, author of The Afterlife Unveiled
“Our Magnificent Afterlife is a must read for anyone who wants to know what to expect when at some point they must leave this world for the next. The Summerland is the term used to describe these levels of heaven that the vast majority of us will sooner or later inhabit, the next natural state of our evolution. It even describes how having a knowledge of what to expect makes the transition even more smooth and wondrous. All this wisdom comes from those who have actually experienced heaven and gives us a step by step approach to this amazing and perfect experience that awaits all of us. I can assure you, after reading this book by David Lundberg, you will no longer have that greatest fear of all, the fear of death.”
— Warren King L.Ac, author of “The Soul’s Journey: A Pre-Life Adventure,” and ”Love Your Organs, Love Yourself”
Our Magnificent Afterlife by C. David Lundberg is a book whose time has come. Man has lost the memory of his origin and thus when he comes to the end of his life, does not see where he goes from here. Indeed many modern youth commit suicide because they have no hope of any future for which to look forward.
This book will also open the door for many who are elderly and are very concerned for what is ahead. As a counselor for many who have faced their transition to the next life, I would have been very grateful to have such a book to give to those who were in my classes of preparation. And I see this book as a resource for such classes in the future. This information is paramount for preparation for the end of life. It is also very valuable as a study early in life to help guide individuals in their daily living in that they would have a vision of a greater life purpose.
This book is well-written and easy to read—down-to-earth, yet quite provocative. Congratulations for a great book of depth and breadth that will do much for people of all ages.
–– Rev. Carl Showalter, Spiritual Director, Spiritual Awareness Fellowship
What happens next? is a question most of us will ponder as we age and realize that we will not always exist as we are now. In our world of instant communication and the marvels of technology, we have access to many stories and experiences of others who have made that transition, if only we had time to find and study them.
David Lundberg’s excellent research brings to us, in a single volume, many detailed communications coming from those who are experiencing their magnificent afterlife, and those who have returned following near-death experiences to share what they have learned so we can make the most of our lives here and now. David has beautifully organized these testimonials and teachings to answer our questions and also to inspire us to seek even more.
We don’t have to wait. We can begin building Our Magnificent Afterlife right now! I highly recommend it!

David Lundberg’s new book ‘Our Magnificent Afterlife’ is a gem of a book. His choice of sources is impeccable and the reader can have absolute confidence that the descriptions he gives of the various aspects of our future life are totally consistent with the great body of research compiled over the last 150 years. David guides us gently through an overview of the big pictures of the purpose of life and acknowledges the positive role of religion in attempting to make us aware of God’s plan for humanity. He then takes us on a tour of The Summerland and the lower regions and tackles nine misconceptions about the afterlife. A final section on the book looks at ways we can live in a more spiritual way. This book would suit a wider variety of readers from the newly bereaved to those confronting their own mortality. As it is respectful of religion in the broader sense it would also be a great book for those coming from a religious background seeking to broaden their knowledge. Overall a Magnificent achievement,

Our Magnificent Afterlife: Beyond Our Fondest Dreams compiles information and excerpts from dozens of afterlife sources. It examines the promise of the Heaven World, how souls spend their time, the incredible beauty, soul bodies, mind power, judgment, purgatory, halls of learning, government, and numerous other afterlife aspects in its 55 chapters.
It’s a celebratory, passionate examination of everything from motive to soul groups, considering both questions about and common misconceptions of that afterlife.
Many of these questions might feel unexpected to readers anticipating a usual discussion of afterlife spirituality. Such questions include whether individuality is maintained after death, whether or not the afterlife is shadowy or boring, and how self-image and divine purpose enter into afterlife experiences and concepts, making for thought-provoking reading.
C. David Lundberg examines different facets of the afterlife based not on casual research, but a lifelong passion of spiritual research. Over 170 quotations in the book come from souls who have lived a relatively pure life and telepathically sent their afterlife reports to associates on Earth, as well as from select near-death experiences.
Lundberg’s mission statement is in his introduction (“My mission became to discover and share the best and most reliable descriptions about the afterlife and the best explanations for how it all works.”). It synthesizes, under one cover, a treasure trove of knowledge based on dozens of different sources reporting about the many beautiful, loving, logical and just aspects found in the Heaven World.
It isn’t uncommon to have a book compile many such instances; but what sets Our Magnificent Afterlife: Beyond Our Fondest Dreams apart from others on the subject is Lundberg’s inclusion of telepathic reports from souls who actually live in the afterlife in addition to select near-death experiences. It is also his attention to detail and bringing all these experiences together in a uniform manner to answer basic questions about the organization and purposes of the afterlife itself.
No reader who believes in the afterlife should be without this thorough overview that describes the afterlife’s organization, promises, and overall significance. This work offers hope, comfort and essential afterlife information for all who have concerns about what follows their lives on Earth.
