Publisher's Summary

Based on the largest near-death experience study in history, involving 3,000 people from diverse backgrounds and religious traditions, including nonbelievers, God and the Afterlife presents startling evidence that a supreme being exists - and there is amazing consistency about what he is like.

In his best-selling book Evidence of the Afterlife, Dr. Jefferey Long showed us that there is a strong scientific case for life after death. Now he goes further, revealing evidence that God is real. At the Near Death Experience Research Foundation, Dr. Long studied the stories of thousands of people who have journeyed to the afterlife. Though there are a wide variety of differences in how people experience NDEs - some see a bright light, others go through a tunnel, still others experience reviews of their lives - he discovered that many of the accounts shared a remarkably similar description of God: a supreme being who radiated love and grace.

Expanding on his analysis begun in Evidence of the Afterlife, God and the Afterlife is the first intensive exploration of the people who have reported going to the frontier of heaven and meeting God and have returned to share their journeys. Groundbreaking and profound, it provides new insight into the human experience and expands our notions of mortality, offering possibility, hope, and comfort.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    Story
    "Interesting stats on people who experienced "God""

    Actual data collected from numerous Near Death Experiencers is considered here with regard to those people who experienced "God"

    Here, though, "God" is not a bearded old man sitting on a throne, but comes in many forms that - no matter what the form experienced - is still described by the respondent as "God" or the creator, or the source, or even by one as "The Big Cheese"

    The statistics are considered as a whole, and then broken down. Interestingly, the experience wasn't predetermined by a person's belief system before the NDE. And, even if someone was a "believer" before their NDE, that didn't mean they were going to experience "God" and even "non-believers" could have the experience.

    The book is a great analysis of the reports gathered, by using questionnaires. The numbers as a whole and their percentage breakdowns are discussed, analyzed, and there are also dips into various individuals stories of their encounter with "God" and their experiences are shared within the book.

    "Just Okay"

    Narration was good and research was also well done. I would have liked it better if there was more details about the subjects.

    Story
    "Interesting but a bit light"
    Would you listen to God and the Afterlife again? Why?

    Probably not. It was interesting enough to listen to – NDE subject matter is fascinating almost without exception – but I felt this book didn't really contain any substantial insights that I would not have previously thought. Hence, I'm unlikely to re-listen to this book, although I would recommend this to anyone interested in NDEs.


    What other book might you compare God and the Afterlife to and why?

    This very much felt like the part II to Jeffrey Long's first book, Evidence of Afterlife, and indeed, this very much is the part II.


    What does Walter Dixon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Clean performance.. it was appropriate for this book; an annoying reader can destroy an otherwise good book. But since this book didn't really have "characters", there was only so much a reader could do.
