That is the one-sentence summary of this book, and a powerful consolation that we are never truly alone in life.
While reading on this very rare topic, I had gotten the sense that the author had expended a huge amount of effort, undertaking an arduous research collecting anecdotal evidence, and analyzing scientific journals and literature, in order to put this most difficult work together.
It is filled mostly with the true stories of people's experiences while in distress. These people give account of a great presence which manifests itself either as a calm, reassuring, but very commanding voice, or as a seemingly real living person, who suddenly appear, to impart guidance and comfort.
Most of the personal accounts in the book were published for the first time ever as people are always understandably reticent in making these kinds of pseudo-mystical experiences public.
As a result, I have treated the recounting of these experiences with reverence, whilst at the same time enjoying them immensely. Not enjoyment in a humorous or frivolous way, but in the good cheer that they brought to my heart: It feels good to know that we are never alone, no matter what.
The author spent equal objective time on the scientific redundant literature that attempted to explain how this is all just the effects of a stressed human brain. Then he showed examples of experiences which totally refuted those explanations.
Overall, this was a great and informative read with positive spiritual overtones that was very uplifting in its effect.
I have heard of other types of experiences,, when no problem was happening.>>BUT....
This book is GREAT at explaining experiences about trouble being givin HELP " ( and yes , we're probably NOT "ALONE" )
I just wonder about the " OTHER" ( non trouble type )
How about the OTHER type of experiences ,( with NO problem, No drugs, no illness, no alcohol, No danger ) ?
However,, It was good to learn about the many "helper" type of happenings , AND the different perspectives of , HOW ,why
and when etc. ( I think we all have had SOME of those experiences,,, I just wonder about the "other" things ,,Like an Angel who came to the Blessed Virgin Mary ( when she concieved )
OR some of the things like the Children of Fatima experienced. ..with " Angels",,, etc.. ( those things were "left out" ) ..
Life is full of "mystery" ,,,So it IS great to hear about the ones described in this book...
