Dr. Moody covers a variety of interrelated topics with respect to those having experienced a Near-Death Experience (NDE). However, the focus seems to be directed toward the NDEers themselves, who may still question their experience or perhaps have never spoken of it. As such, LIGHT BEYOND read as a gentle collection of well-documented assurances that the NDEer has in fact not lost his or her mind.

Indeed, Dr. Moody does dedicate an entire chapter to mental illness, obviously concluding for all that the NDE experience is not the actions of a defective or diseased brain. Quite the contrary: a main denominator throughout the pages reveals that NDEers transformed their individual lives immediately thereafter with surprisingly positive mindsets and lifestyles.

Overall, this is one of those straight forward books that should be in every hospital gift shop. For the rest of us still without the privilege (and possibly no desire for major trauma anytime soon), LIGHT BEYOND will offer a peak behind the veil of what can be expected shortly after the end credits close our final acts. Unfortunately, other works will have to be sought out to get the "bigger picture."

The Light Beyond is a follow up of Moody's 1975 best seller Life After Life. While Life After Life is largely a first person account of the Near Death Experience (NDE), a term he coined, The Light Beyond consists entirely of Moody's personal interpretation of the interviews with NDEers, which leaves no doubt in the reader's mind that Moody is firmly in the camp of believers of the afterlife. He also quotes the works of Melvin Morse frequently, a pediatrician who is a prominent player in the field of NDE in children. According to Moody, accounts of NDE in children are important because they are less likely to be tainted by cultural conditioning. If the purpose of the book is to convince the readers the existence of the afterlife, I think Moody has failed. It didn't convince me. It lacks the vigorous reproducible data of serious physical science. The value of Moody's books is that they give solace to the grieving and peace to the old and dying. The flip side is that blind faith in the afterlife can expose the vulnerable to charlatans and con-artists. The evidence presented are very intriguing, but it is not up to par as scientific proof of the existence of the afterlife. It remains a matter of personal faith.

Moody explains in detail how he researched the NDE by talking to those who have had the experience. If you interested in NDE you will enjoy but there is nothing new are profound found in this discourse.

The Light Beyond is a wonderful book, but so many people just focus on their own lessons they learned, which makes for an interesting story, but I am always looking for more - how does this apply to me? Do I have to have an NDE myself? I liked Tiffany Snow's book better, just one chapter about her great NDE, but the rest of it shows how anyone can open up, if they learn how. I'm not saying The Light Beyond is a bad book, really, but I guess I was just expecting more.

I learned some stuff and it reinforced my experience. There were experiences that I had not heard before. Kinda repetitive though.

It is okay. Research with some stories about NDE.

Lots of rehash from the 70s. Ho-Hum.
