In this article, Albrecht and Alexander examine the evolution and movement known as “thanatology” (the study of death). Albrecht and Alexander seek to evaluate the segment of the field that attempts to document out-of-the-body and life-after-death experiences. Albrecht and Alexander discuss the ties between factual research, theoretical interpretation and over occult involvement within the field of thanatology. They then move into a biblical discussion of death and responses to the attempts to discern specifics of the after-life. Included in the article is a discussion of the approaches of dr. Raymond Moody and Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross in the field of death and dying.
