The author states in the beginning of the book that he tends to be a skeptic and wants to know the full details before he will believe something. And I can tell that he has done just that with near death experiences. He shares some stories but also evidence and arguments regarding them. It is a fascinating subject and covered very well in this book. Recommended.
There are many reason why I am very interested in this particular subject, but first I must say that I have never been skeptical of NDE because of a similar experience that I had before the age of ten. At that time I didn't give it a second thought, but as my life moves on I can see the experience I had about seventy years ago was very similar to what is explained and reported in Steve Miller's book. My three brothers and I had our tonsils out on the same day. I was the last to go under the knife. During the operation a series of strange things happened to me and I won't describe it here, but I will tell you that my experience was very similar to what has been reported in this book. The incision to remove my tonsils was faulted and I hemorrhaged. I lost a tremendous amount of blood. In those days we were given chloroform before an operation and because of the emergency I had to be given more than the recommended safe amount. I was able to look down on the doctors working on me but I had not the first ounce of fear. I was listening to the most beautiful music I had ever heard. Some of this could be a trick of the subconscious, I don't know. My brothers went home on schedule and I had to stay behind in critical care. It was three weeks before I could eat solid foods.
The above doesn't tell how much I liked Steve Miller's book, but only that I have no doubt of anything I learned from my reading. I found his book to be fascinating and very compelling, it struck a familiar chord with me in that my reading gave me so much feeling for the total life I live, not just a physical temporary life here on earth.Read more ›
The author has accurately called it a brief study, and indeed, it is just 6 chapters with multiple appendixes but he has represented the length honestly and has done a thorough job. Throughout you will find excellent writing and documentation that is in simple layman's language. Where other studies documented in such a way might become cumbersome, this book held my interest and helped sway me, a skeptic to see the plausibility of near death experiences. I especially appreciated his convincing and logical arguments about common themes in most accounts of near death experiences which he tackles on a point by point and how he ties them in to the existence of God and spiritual beings.
If you have any interest in this topic and are yet undecided, I highly recommend this book. I doubt you will find a better one on this subject anywhere.
