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.

    "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.

    "Robotic NOT Hypnotic"

    Oh my goodness, I seriously want to like this book but the audio is SO hard to listen to. The narrator is SO f*cking ROBOTIC. In a subject where there's an innate sense of intuition and a great need for empathy the narrators voice cuts through the body and mind being able to relax and experience, let alone absorb and learn. Personal opinion.

    "Must read!"

    Amazing book that topped off all my reading on NDE's. I really appreciate all the hard work that must have been put into this research & book. Answered questions that other books didn't and clarified better what others tried to touch on. Well done!

    "Good book, too much theatrical inflection by narrator"

    My complaint with this book is the narrator. He read the accounts of NDE's like a child reading Sunday School stories.
    I prefer non-fiction books to be read by the authors. They don't tend toward over inflection.
    Otherwise, an informative book anyone should read.

    Where does God and the Afterlife rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    My favorite characters were the real life experiences of people near to die.

    "Excellent in every sense"

    The evidence from these studies points overwhelmingly to a world beyond (in every sense of the word) our present really, inhabited by a Loving Being so much more vast and incomprehensible than fits into our finite understanding. For a glimpse into what awaits us, which can only serve to help us live better in this one, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND immersing yourself in this book...

    "Too Many Stats, Not Enough Story"

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