Death Is an Illusion: A Logical Explanation Based on Martinus' Worldview

Synopsis

Martinus will become much more prominent as a spiritual teacher, thanks to Else Byskov's clear summary of his life and teachings.

It leads to an optimistic view of life, and it provides the basis for a harmonious and empathetic relationship to all people and all living things.
