Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

In At Peace in the Light, Dannion Brinkley continues the spiritual exploration of his life and death that began in his phenomenal bestseller, Saved by the Light. Having had two near-death experiences, one of which lasted twenty-eight minutes, Brinkley has been left with an extraordinary sense of perception. With absolute candor, he describes his struggle to become accustomed to his disorienting physic ability -- he reveals his initial uses, both positive negative, of his power and his gradual understanding of how to accomplish his mission.

While making a call on an ailing friend of his father's, Brinkley realized that he had found a way of life by helping people face the transition of death. He came to understand that his mission is to offer great comfort to the dying: In hospice work, he could help people lose their fear of death by explaining the gentle way in which we leave this world. Here Brinkley shares heartwarming stories of his ability to comfort the dying as well as those who love them. He demonstrates that the dying often have enhanced psychic ability and a clarity of vision that can make death more graceful for everyone involved. By so movingly describing his work, he gives us a different, kinder, more peaceful view of dying well and the promise of what lies beyond.

Brinkley will teach you to use his experience of panoramic life review as a guide to creating your own, instruct you on awakening and enhancing your own skills of perception and provide you with the language to deal with your own and your loved ones' mortality. His conclusions and techniques illustrate how, by focusing on our own purpose, involving ourselves in service to others, creating our own life reviews and heightening our powers of perception, we can put richness back in our lives.

For the hundreds of thousands who found comfort and understanding in Saved by the Light and for those facing mortality or the loss of a loved one, Dannion Brinkley's new message offers inspiration, guidance and the opportunity for spiritual growth and renewal. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

There are still subtle references contained within as any extensive scholar of the Bible could attest to.
For those of you who are searching for answers regarding the afterlife and/or eternal being, this book powerfully supports your searching.
Reading this book really reminds you of what is important in life, and what things you will regret when you die.

Dannion Brinkley has done it again! He has managed to write another excellent book of his near death experiences, his journeys and the messages he received from the Beings of Light. This second book is filled with love, compassion and guidance, as was the first book. As Dannion says, "Love is the important thing there is." "All you need to realize is that love is powerful. Its expression is treating others the way they want to be treated." I read this book and then had to go back and read his first book. Then I had to read this book once again. And of course I had to read this book in one sitting! I find people's experiences of near-death experiences quite fascinating and this book is no exception.
Dannion does repeat a lot of what was contained in the first book, but I found that he went into much more detail in this book. The story behind the story, so to speak. I really came away with deeper understanding and compassion for all that he had gone through. I thought it was extremely interesting when he told about helping his so called "friends" with his new gifts. His work with hospice is extraordinary. He is relentless, committed to his life's mission and does not give up. Considering what he has and had gone through, he has had valid reasons for giving up. Yet Dannion prevails in the midst of obstacles presented to him.
I found his explanation of his centers most fascinating. Equally fascinating was the work he did with Dr. Raymond Moody. Our lives are so busy and hectic these days, that to "plug" into our spiritual realm on a daily basis cannot often be accomplished; yet it is so necessary. Our children and the dying can teach us so much, if we only take the time to listen!

This book is basically a "rehash" of the first book. It reviews the entire first book. As I was reading, I could not wait to get to the new material and events that have occurred in Dannion's life. Before I knew it, the book ended and I felt that I reread the first book. Save your money and order something else. Maybe a CD instead??

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In this second book Mr. Brinkley goes into considerably more detail about his Near Death Experience, hospice work, and the Centers that he was directed to build by Spirit Beings. It is a most inspiring and comforting account- this is the third time that I've read it since its publication. Always central is the message that he was directed to bring back to this life, namely, that we are all mighty spiritual beings who came here to cocreate with God out of a spirit of love.
It occured to me in reading this that he has recreated the ancient profession of the psychopomp, the guide to the spirit world. Indeed, his Centers sound remarkable like an updated version of the psychomanteum, a temple where people can go to have mystical visions and/or direct contact with spirits. I can see where this would correct a profound imbalance in the modern psyche.
The author also recounts the visions of the future that he was given in 1975...

I just finished reading this book and was very surprised to find a reviewer who said that it is about reincarnation. This book is about Near Death Experience and about human transformation. I do not remember reading anything about reincarnation at all.
What I do remember reading was a book that echoed very strongly with my own thoughts and feelings about life and death. I enjoyed reading about the "future predictions" and "paranormal powers," but I don't need this information to motivate my life. What I need, and what I found in this book, are powerful statements about the connection of all life, the strength of love, the need to open our hearts and give, and the need to affirm the divine nature of all humankind. Deep spiritual values that are at the heart of all religions (yes, I have read them in my bible too!).
My mother is 82 years old and beginning the evolution to her death. I will soon begin reading this book to her. I have asked my brother and sister to read this book. I hope that we can work together to "de-stress" our hearts and minds as we participate in a death in our family.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The author was struck by lightning in 1975, and was "dead" for 28 minutes, during which time he recalls leaving his body and being transferred to a realm of light, where 13 Spirit Beings spoke with him. He experienced a "life review," in which he was able to experience himself and his actions through the perceptions and feelings of all those whom his life had affected. The Spirit Beings gave him 117 specific predictions of the future, including previews of such events as the fall of the Soviet Union and the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl. Brinkley was also returned to life on earth with a mission - to build Centers for the cultivation of spirituality from a non-religious perspective.
Years later, Brinkley had a second NDE while having heart surgery. He experienced another life review, and gained further insghts that were to help him in the future - although he has considerably less to say about this NDE than about the earlier one.
During his recovery from the 1975 lightning strike, Brinkley discovered that he had apparently spontaneously developed the ability to read the thoughts and feelings of other people, and to foretell certain kinds of future events with a high (though not perfect) degree of accuracy. The effects of these new-found abilities on his life are documented in this book.
Brinkley has found a niche (his life's purpose) in hospice work, using the accounts of his experiences to help relieve the dying of the fear of death, and using a pre-death version of the "life review" process to help the dying come to terms with the events and effects of their lives. The net effect of Brinkley's work seems to be to help people die in a state of relatively greater peace and dignity.
Brinkley's NDEs included no sense of being judged by the Beings of Light.
