This book wasn't exactly what I expected, but it was a very good listen.. It's full of stories of individuals who had encounters with their loved ones from the other side. Each story is short and to the point. Many of these stories were by people who have always believed in life after death, and some were by people who believed this is it, there's nothing more.. Their encounters changed the way they see life and the afterlife..
It's not about religion or trying to convince anyone of anything.. It's just a book of stories given by people from all over with a bit of research info given about each type of encounter.. Some of them took away a religious meaning, others saw it as confirmation that we will all meet again on the other side.. .
If you enjoy books about spirituality, you'll very much enjoy this one.
I have always wondered what Scientology really was.. I've done research on the subject but was never really able to get to the heart of it... This book is written not in a way to convince you one way or the other, but to give you the facts and let you decide for yourself..
It appears Scientology has a very dark side to it. Parts of the story are a little slow moving, but all in all, it's very interesting.
The book explains John Travolta and Tom Cruise connection to Scientology, too..
I'm fascinated by the NDE. This book is written by someone who was very skeptical about the whole idea, but went to work in a Hospice, which started her on this journey of trying to find answers.. Also, her mother had dementia, and I assume she needed to be assured that there was something better waiting for her mom.. My parents both suffer from different forms of dementia, so I would guess that attracted me to this particular book. It's well worth the listen (or read).. Lots of fascinating stories as well as theories from professionals, both pro and con.. I've listen and read a number of NDE books.. some were just a little too religious for my taste, while others just felt true.. This is one of those true ones..
