What do the many examples of "invisible helpers" coming to the aid of those in danger say about the afterlife, and about the eternal soul's ability to continue to interact with the physical world after death? Here, in this 1896 work, the renowned spiritualist Charles W. Leadbeater explores the universal belief in spiritual assistance in times of need, the reality of superphysical life, and what lies beyond for us all. A classic work of theosophy-the esoteric philosophy popular at the turn of the 20th century as a means of reconciling science and religion-this will intrigue all those fascinated by the paranormal. British author CHARLES WEBSTER LEADBEATER (1854-1934) was ordained as an Anglican priest, but later joined the prominent Theosophical Society and traveled to India to study alternative spiritual and occult practices, eventually settling into his life as a clairvoyant and author. His other works include Man Visible and Invisible and The Science of the Sacrament.Read Less
