Praise

“Guideposts writer Tompkins (The Beaten Path) tackles the puzzling question of animal afterlife in this delightfully insightful and well-researched narrative. Tompkins’s book is incredibly entertaining while it also raises deep ethical questions about our human understanding of the animal soul. Compellingly, he makes the cogent argument that the enriching bond between man and beast suggests more than an earthly existence for both.”–Publishers Weekly (Starred review)

“You do not have to be a die-hard believer in the animal soul to be grabbed by the stories in The Divine Life of Animals. Whether you agree with Tompkins’ arguments or not, his search for a basis for belief in the spiritual life of animals will leave you charmed, entertained, and deeply impressed.”— Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, Ph.D., coauthor of When Elephants Weep

“For anyone who has ever wondered about the mysteries of the animal soul, this compulsively readable book is the one you’ve been waiting for. I kept wondering, How come no one’s ever explained it all so clearly before?”—Michael Mountain, co-founder, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary

“This unforgettable and surprising book will make you reconsider everything you’ve ever thought or felt about animals. The question of whether pets survive beyond the physical world has never been addressed so movingly—or unpredictably. After reading Ptolemy Tompkins’ conclusions, you’ll never look into your pet’s eyes the same way again.”—Mitch Horowitz, author of Occult America
