THE VESTIBULE was one of the first books to broach the subject of life after death and record experiences of those who died and then returned. It is a collection of remarkable stories told by men and women who were pronounced dead, only to return to their bodies and resume living. Their reports of journeying to death are so vivid, so full of joy and peace, and so startlingly alike that they give overwhelming evidence for the survival of the spirit after life. “The purpose and motive of THE VESTIBULE is to establish with more certainty that there is an afterlife,” wrote Jess Weiss, “thereby alleviating fully or to a degree the sting of death.”
Since publication, THE VESTIBULE has been used extensively in hospices for the terminally ill for its comforting and healing message. Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, The prominent physician and bestselling author of On Death and Dying, used Weiss’s book in her workshops to reassure dying patients and their families, and thousands of people around the world found solace in the accounts in Weiss’s book. “I cannot express on paper the feelings I felt while reading your book,” wrote one grateful reader. “Your book showed me that death is not frightening for the ill person. He welcomes it, after all that he has been through. For me, the subject of death no longer makes me tremble.”
Forever timely, THE VESTIBULE has been, is, and will continue to be a Spiritual guidepost for every person, leading to a greater understanding of life and Death … and the afterlife.

The object of this book is to awaken the Adam man out of his dream state of existence into the realization and acknowledgement of his Spiritual birthright as originally documented "in the beginning" ... In the mystical FIRST CHAPTER of Genesis.
The bible teaches: "Deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage" (Herbrews 2:15-King James Version). Overcoming the Fear of Death and Dying, the author (95 years/young), a WW II Omaha Beach D-Day survivor, describes a way of living fully in the now ... In the present! Treating each period as ... an Infinite day. He reveals how one can have a young attitude and be "young in spirit" no matter the age. "Age is not an affliction, but a time of Wonder." A person with such an attitude can live a long life and still, at the end of it, "die young."
OVERCOMING THE FEAR OF DEATH & DYING-BRAILLE Edition Published-1993
This book plumbs the depths of despair to reveal the transformative power of mystical revelation, taking us on a journey from sense to Soul, a journey with one transcendent objective...Direct access to God. In the pursuit of scholastic knowledge, every day something knowable is acquired; in the theological mystical pursuit of God's "Truth," everyday something divinely unknowable is realized.
The solution to our world's problems will be better resolved, not through the worlds religions, but through mystical gnosis...the major ingredient of all religions. Mysticism is fourth dimensional spiritual consciousness. Non-denominational, non-sectarian, non-organizational. People of every persuasion will find in mysticism the twenty-first century answer to the divisiveness and doctrinal dilemmas posed by religion, and a path to deeper understanding of God and His spiritual meaning in their lives.
