I recently read C. W. Leadbeater's Life after Death and found it
extremely well done.
He writes in a way that presents truths in a rather timeless way
about how to regard death and the deceased. It is generally
positive as well and encouraging.
He delineates the effects of the views of traditional Churches on
deceased souls as well as the customs of mourning for the
I also felt he gave some excellent recommendations regarding
Helping the Dead. He felt that uncontrolled grief was
"everyone knows some case of sorrow or distress, whetehr
among the living or the dead does not matter; if you know such a
case, take it into your mind when you lie down to sleep, and
resolve as soon as you are free from this body to go to that
person and endeavor to comfort him....be well assured that your
resolve will not be fruitless..."
