Introducing new reprints by and about Bishop James Pike: The Other Side Search The Other Side is a moving narrative of a father's efforts to save his son from enslavement to psychedelic drugs, a tragic story of a young and gifted man's premature death, a startling story of poltergeist occurrences that led the father and other witnesses to believe that from beyond the grave his son was trying to get in touch, a detailed account of how this communication proceeded during a time when the father was under accusation for heresy for believing too little. Above all, it is an analysis by one of America's keenest minds of what all these experiences may mean. The Other Side certainly reads like a suspenseful novel, yet every phrase of the narration is painstakingly documented by eyewitness accounts of the strange occurrences that led the Bishop Pike to consult mediums in England and America, and by several word-for-word tape recordings of such seances. All readers will find here an honest and lucid exploration of psychic phenomena, and those who have lost a loved one to suicide will find reason to take heart and find hope. James A. Pike was bishop of the Episcopal diocese of California and a staff member of the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions. Prior to becoming an Episcopal priest he was a prominent lawyer in Washington D.C. He authored many books on law, theology, and ethics, including Doing the Truth, You and the New Immorality, and If This be Heresy. Diane Kennedy Pike is the widow of James A. Pike. She graduated from Stanford University with a BA in education and earned her master's degree in English from Columbia University. She currently resides in Scottsdale, Arizona.
