Soul Survivor: The Reincarnation of a World War II Fighter Pilot, by Bruce Leininger & Andrea Leininger, with Ken Gross. ISBN-10: 0446509345, ISBN-13: 978-0446509343. A New York Times Bestseller and one the most meticulously researched and carefully documented cases of reincarnation ever recorded. It's an absolutely fascinating account by two parents of how they gradually began to realize that their two year old boy is the reincarnation of a World War 2 pilot who was killed during the battle of Iwo Jima in the Pacific. We experience the parents' amazing journey as they travel from skepticism to final acceptance, as their toddler reveals to them such astonishing information as the name of the obscure, small "Escort Class" aircraft carrier he took off from, the kind of plane he flew (along with it's little known flight idiosyncrasies), the exact names of his comrades-in-arms, and a host of other statements that his exasperated father meticulously tracked down in historical ship records, flight journals, and other official documents. His father was exasperated because the idea that his son might be the reincarnation of a WW2 pilot completely conflicted with his Christian spiritual beliefs, so he spent several years of careful research trying to disprove the idea that their son was reincarnated. In the end the father came to realize that not only was the evidence overwhelming and thus accepted the reality in front of him, but it also deepened his faith in Jesus, because he now knew without a doubt that life is Eternal. Even the deceased pilot's sister tenderly came to believe that the little boy was her reincarnated beloved brother. A pleasure to read, you wont want to put down this lovingly written, inspiring book.
