In the early hours of September 17, 2008, in California, 23-year-old Jordan McKay was fatally shot while riding his bike home. His grief-stricken father, professor and clinical psychologist Matthew McKay, refused to believe that he had lost Jordan forever. With the help of psychologist Dr. Allan Botkin, who discovered and specializes in induced after-death communication, McKay found a way to communicate with Jordan and began writing down their conversations. Seeking Jordan: How I Learned the Truth about Death and the Invisible Universe is McKay’s deeply personal, moving account of his efforts to reconnect with his son and learn more about what happens after we die. Among the insights Jordan shares are that death is simply one of many journeys an individual takes (exemplified by his stories of his previous lives), that every individual has a soul that exists permanently apart from the corporeal form, and that doubt is essential to all spiritual and intellectual growth. As McKay did, readers may find comfort in Jordan’s words and experience a deeper understanding of one of the greatest mysteries of human existence. As McKay writes of his relationship with Jordan, “There is no barrier – in this or in the spirit world – that can keep us apart.”
