Basically he's an Indian-American conservative Catholic commentator, whose bibliography includes such titles as What’s So Great About Christianity (clue: in his view, a lot) and The Enemy At Home: The Cultural Left and Its Responsibility for 9/11. And now he's written a book entitled Life After Death: The Evidence, in which he claims to draw "on some of the most powerful theories and trends in physics, evolutionary biology, science, philosophy, and psychology" and "shows why the atheist critique of immortality is irrational". Or, in other words, and as title suggests, provide the scientific evidence for an afterlife.
Well, if the book's from the Ronseal Woodstain school of doing exactly what it says on the tin, it must be quite a read, I'm sure you'll agree. With that in mind, we can turn to a review of Life After Death: The Evidence by Jerry Adler in Newsweek. Has D'Souza finally put paid to the age-old argument of where we all go when we leave this life behind. To give you an idea, here's Adler's summary of one of D'Souza's arguments:
"D'Souza turns to his advantage one of the atheists' favorite arguments, God's apparent tolerance for human suffering. Precisely because evil so often goes unpunished in this world, he asserts, the moral code must reflect another reality, in which souls are judged, punished, or rewarded after death. 'The postulate of an afterlife enables us to make sense of this life,' he writes. It worked for Dante, didn't it?"
