MOVERS AND SHAKERS #2: Roberta Grimes


Maxine’s guest is Roberta Grimes.

Roberta Grimes spent decades studying nearly 200 years of afterlife evidence and forming a detailed picture of what happens at and after death. She then discovered that two thousand years ago Jesus told us things about God, reality, death, the afterlife, human nature, and the meaning and purpose of our lives that perfectly match the afterlife evidence in even small details. She outlines many of these correspondences in her books, The Fun of Dying and The Fun of Staying in Touch.

In her latest book, Liberating Jesus, Roberta offers compelling evidence that the earliest Christians misunderstood the meaning and the message of Jesus. She demonstrates that all the correspondences between the Gospels and the afterlife evidence amount to nothing less than a new revelation from God. And she shows us that once we put aside the magic-thinking notion that the whole Christian Bible must be the Inspired Word of God just because the earliest Christians said it was, we at last free Jesus to bring to humankind the messages directly from God that long ago were His life’s true purpose. His promise remains as fresh today as it was two thousand years ago, and now it is confirmed by the afterlife evidence: if we will live according to the Lord’s teachings, we can bring the Kingdom of God on earth.
