Publisher's Summary

At the age of 31, Betty Eadie died after routine surgery. The events that followed can only be described as the most profound and extensive near-death experience ever recorded. During the time she was clinically dead, Betty was given knowledge of the afterlife that would make even the greatest skeptic think twice.

As she traveled through the spiritual realm, she learned more about the laws and history of the universe than perhaps anyone before her. She explains with uncanny detail the reasons why we have chosen to be on this earth at this time in history, and how all out actions are growing experiences for our immortal spirits.

In those few minutes that stretched into eternity, Betty's life was changed forever. In this special unabridged recording of Embraced by the Light, she shares the vision of a world she never imagined existed, and gives new meaning to the question, "Why are we here?"

I enjoyed the book

However... a large portion of the book between Chapter 5 and Chapter 6 had been deleted.

Mono tone Narration by the author put me to sleep.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

No emotion while reading her story. Sounded more like fiction than non fiction just by the way she narrated the story! I would have hired a professional to read the book with emotion.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure

Would you be willing to try another one of Betty J. Eadie’s performances?

Unfortunately no.

A Peek Into The Fullness Of Our Lives

Although a different narrator could have warmed the tone a bit, some stories and accounts can only be told by the author. This is one of those stories. Thanks for sharing.
