Format: Paperback
Ned Dougherty's Fast Lane to Heaven, is an incredible tale of one man's transformation after his near death experience. Similar to Betty Eadie's and Dannion Brinkley's vivid recalls of their NDEs, Dougherty is also able to recall with vivid clarity his journey and all that was shown to him.
Dougherty was living the hedonistic, fast lane of life, with homes in both The Hamptons, and West Palm Beach, driving expensive cars, having many expensive toys, and operating two thriving nightclubs. Alcohol was his admitted drug of choice, and cocaine use was intermittently part of his lifestyle, as were meaningless relationships with meaningless beautiful women.
After suffering an apparent heart attack, Dougherty realized that he was no longer "in his body", and was met by a former friend who "died" in Vietnam. Dougherty recalls in stunning detail his life review, future life events, future world events, including the 9-11 attacks on New York and Washington, his meetings with The Lady of The Light, God, and other spiritual beings. Because Dougherty's life's mission is not yet completed on earth, he is told he must go back.
Needless to say, Dougherty's life is forever transformed after his heavenly encounters, and amazingly, the doctors could not find anything physically wrong with him - all of his medical tests were normal. Yet Dougherty knew that he had died, but all of the doctors could not find anything indicating a heart attack.
As foretold to Dougherty, he indeed turned his life around, and is no longer living a hedonistic, fast lifestyle, but a more spiritual, contemplative one, which includes hospice volunteering, as well as forming his Angels of Mercy organization which provides miracles to those in need.

I wholehearted agree with the other earlier review shown here.

The author says about his account:

"I would usually awake before dawn and immediately begin to write. The writing seemed to come to me automatically--totally by inspiration."

"The financial and banking institutions will collapse due in large part to the failure of the insurance companies as a result of the natural disasters. The United States will be thrown into political, economic, and social chaos."

"The United States government will fail to meet its financial obligations as a result of its staggering national debt and will collapse. As a result of the destruction of U.S. military bases from natural disasters, the United States will lose its ability to wage war or defend itself, leaving the country vulnerable to invasion by foreign troops, particularly by China's 'army of two hundred million.'"

He also talks about a pole shift, earthquakes, eruptions, tidal waves that will bring geophysical and geopolitical changes.

He was also told, "None of these events in the future need to take place if mankind begins to recognize and work with God's plan."

The author left New York and now lives in the mountains of Pennsylvania. He encourages prayer and meditation.

"The future of the world rests in our hands. The right choice is obvious. If each and every individual aspires to lead a life of love of God, self, and neighbor, collectively mankind has the ability to determine the future of the world and to choose our destiny as a civilization."

In this autobiographical history centering around a near-death experience of Ned Dougherty's that occurred in 1984, he recounts details of the experience; its effects on him; and details of the messages that he received while on the Other Side and in the years since he has returned to life. Among his published list of prophecies was one that described in a general way the attack of 9/11 a few months before it actually occurred. Others of his prophecies, like the world-wide disturbances in the weather and seismic events, have also come true. If you're interested in his prophecies, see this book and his End-Times Daily web site.

Among Ned's many bits of Other-Side knowledge to impart is the fact that the best weapon against the wars and catastrophes on earth is not guns but prayer. A prayer group of 20 people, he asserts, can turn back these crises.

Ned was "called" to a spiritual mission on earth and has been living it out since his return, but he spent years trying to understand his NDE and trying to implement his newly-adopted Mission to do good. He discovered and chose to visit a Roman Catholic Community run by the Montfort Missionaries in New York. There he happened to meet other people who had experienced NDEs. He has returned to the Roman Catholic religion of his boyhood and is a devout daily communicant. Ned Dougherty is involved in various good works, including promoting the sanctity of Life. His organization, Mission of Angels, has a priest spiritual director. He and a group of other persons who receive frequent messages from the Virgin Mary, the Heavenly Father, Jesus the Son, and the Archangel Michael now have a web site where they report the messages they receive.
