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.

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.

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.

Fascinating stories of seeing behind the veil...

I loved this book! The way this book was written was how I thought “Evidence of the Afterlife” would have been written-with more case studies as examples. It gave me a deeper understanding of the book and filled me with hope. The stories were so fascinating and gave so much deep insight.

My nana recently passed away in May and that’s what got me started on this path toward this book. I’ve always been fascinated by NDEs and nana had actually had one in 82’ or 83’- not long after she married Papa. She went into anaphylaxis when she took medicine that had never caused an allergic reaction before. She left her body and could hear Papa begging her to stay with him. She ended up on a fence. One side felt amazing but she was drawn to the other side which led to being back in her body here on Earth.

I feel a lot more at peace and hope knowing she’s up there in Heaven and I’ll see her one day! I’ve always had strong faith in Christ so I wasn’t surprised to know He’s very much alive and real. The book just confirmed it further.

Worth the stories

Worth the stories of near death and coming back from death minutes later; very eye-opening

Wonderful book!

Having just finished this book, I encourage everyone, no matter your faith denomination or belief/unbelief in God to read/listen to this book. It's filled with hope, love and joy regarding the afterlife. God is good and He/She wants everyone to know how precious and loved we all are!

Profound!

My thanks to all the people that shared their NDE experiences, and to Dr. Long, Paul Perry and all who were involved in bringing to us the wisdom imparted within the NDEs.

I found the scientific and impartial approach taken to analyze the NDE accounts both respected those that shared their NDEs, and provided undisputable evidence for the validity of NDEs.

The core truths from the NDE accounts of life after physical death, a loving non-judgmental God, that we are one with All That Is and that our purpose on Earth is to embody Love is so profound that I hope that everyone will get a chance to both hear it and to chose to internalize it within their lives.

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!

Steven hawkings boring brother

Good story but the narrators voice is extremely annoying! At first I thought it might have been speech to text software as it sounded like a computer.
Also if I hear N.D.E.R.F one more time I think I’ll have a breakdown.....
