Is this a record of a genuine communication between this world and the next? That is the question posed by this remarkable book. A man of sceptical nature, Anglican priest Charles Fryer responded to these experiences under paranormal influence with Christian honesty and intellectual integrity. His book is a record of the development of his paranormal faculty - the ability to receive, through the medium of 'automatic writing', communications from his dead father. These communications include a detailed record of the experience of death and the afterlife - in fact, they constitute a 'posthumous autobiography'. I am investigating myself : this is Charles Fryer's approach. Honest and unsensational, A Hand in Dialogue raises serious questions about attitudes to paranormal phenomena.
