Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this book and acutally find the entire subject of NDEs quite fascinating. This book is, to me, a more "scientific" type of explanation, written by an MD, but nonetheless, quite fascinating and very interesting. Recommended reading if you are interested in finding out more about NDEs.
Again, reports of people who have had NDEs, the message is the same - kindness and love as taught by Jesus. People's lives are forever changed after having an NDE.
Moody goes into more explanations and actually posts the questioins and answers, that I, as a reader, was asking as well!
I especially liked the subject on suicide, in which Dr. Moody interviewed subjects who had attempted suicide, had a NDE and came back to "live". All said that is was wrong and they would never do it again. We are God's gift, doing His duty here on earth. Suicide opposses God. Pretty hefty message in this chapter.
Because of his research, readers and others might be looking for Dr. Moody to "prove" that there is life after death. He quite clearly explains that that is not his intent, yet offers his own views on the subject. You, the reader, can judge for yourselves and claim your own beliefs. Yet, after reading numerous books on the subject, (I am currently reading 2 more of Dr. Moody's books),it is very hard to doubt the existence. I leave you with this quote from Dr. Moody's book, "I believe it lies within the realm of possibility that, in a similiar fashion, almost everyone may eventually come to accept intellectually, even without definite proof, that there is another dimension of existence into which the soul passes at death. Remember that it is our own anxiety about whether death is final which shows through when we challenge a person who has had such an experience to "prove" that there is life after death."

This book, the sequel to "Life After Life" is somewhat smaller than the previous book, and contains some interesting observations gleaned from the anecdotal evidence of those who came near to death and survived. Moody talks of the elements of the NDE that fewer people have: seeing the realm of "bewildered spirits" (ghosts), Cities of Light, dopplegangers, and so on. He goes on to speculate of the experiences of suicides, most of whom (in Moody's study) seem to have only partial NDE's. Also discussed are various reactions to his studies, including reactions from the ministry (not all of which were favourable). He includes, interestingly, accounts of certain people who were in dangerous situations, but not actually physically harmed (may provide some indight into what precipitates the NDE). Rather than being primarily speculative in tone, he seems to be mainly creating a roster of things that his subjects have reported to him, which gives the account a feel of objectivity, but he also uses some more personal observations later on in the book. This makes a good supplement to his previous book, but is a little dull because of the way in which it is organised. Interesting, but still all evidence is anecdotal. Little attempt at verification has been exercised (this may have not been the author's intention anyway), so one is left with the idea that maybe the whole experience may be generated by the mind rather than filtered through it. not a bad effort, but could be better.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. I read it years ago when my grandpa died & it really helped. My son's fiance just lost her mother 2 days ago and I bought this book for them. The deceased's entire family is reading it.

Raymond A. Moody, Jr. (born 1944) is both a philosopher and psychiatrist. He has written many other books, such as: Life After Life, The Light Beyond, Coming Back, Reunions: Visionary Encounters With Departed Loved Ones, The Last Laugh: A New Philosophy of Near-Death Experiences, Apparitions, and Theparanormal, etc.

He wrote in the Introduction to this 1977 book, "The present volume, which is intended to be read in conjunction with my previous book... represents an extension of and an addition to some of the concepts and findings discussed there... I am now uncovering new cases of this phenomenon so rapidly that I am no longer keeping track of the exact number... I have encountered some new and unusual experiences which seem to expand the list of [fifteen] elements... I can now say with confidence that this phenomenon---whatever it ultimately means---is a widespread one." (Pg. 3, 5)

He notes, "I stated in 'Life after Life' that I had not found any cases in which a 'heaven'... was described. However, I have now talked with numerous individuals who tell with remarkable consistency of catching glimpses of other realms of being which might well be termed 'heavenly.'" (Pg.
