The parents of James Leininger were first puzzled and then disturbed when their two-year-old son began screaming out chilling phrases during recurrent nightmares, such as, "Plane on fire! Little man can't get out!" The centerpiece of a loving family of three, James was a happy, playful toddler who had only just begun stringing together sentences. Determined to understand what was happening to their son, Bruce and Andrea set off on a journey of discovery that was to rock them to their core. For the more they researched the arcane comments and fragmented details little James revealed, the more they were drawn inescapably to a shocking conclusion: that James was reliving the life of James Huston, a World War II fighter pilot who was killed in the battle for Iwo Jima-- over sixty years ago!
Through painstaking research and conversations with war veterans and surviving members of James Huston's family, Bruce and Andrea were forced to confront their skepticism and reexamine their entire belief system. In the process, they not only managed to solve the mystery of their son's statements. They also uncovered revelations about James Huston's life and wartime experiences that could finally bring peace and healing to his loved ones, decades after his death.
This book features stunning drawings from James Leininger illustrating his unshakable memories, photos that portray the eerie resemblance between young James and the adult James Huston, and a foreword from world-renowned past lives expert Carol Bowman. In SOUL SURVIVOR, readers will come to know and believe in the special child who harbors the soul of a man who died in 1945.
Bruce and Andrea Leininger relate the amazing story of their son James, who they believe is the reincarnation of a World War II fighter pilot. At the age of two, James began experiencing nightmares of a horrible plane crash, and he began to divulge details of the plane that no toddler could possibly have known. His parents were naturally skeptical at first, but James's dreams persisted and soon he was divulging names and events that allowed them to research his descriptions. Eventually, the Leiningers determined that their son had somehow been inhabited by the soul of a heroic pilot named James Huston, who had died in a crash identical to the one young James had described. As devout Christians, the Leiningers did not previously believe in reincarnation, but they do now, and the evidence they present is so compelling that it seems to rule out any argument for coincidence or chance.
