By Karl Williamson on June 19, 2000
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really like this book. I'm buying 10 copies now to give away to people. It is the story of a woman driven to suicide by the hauntings of the abuse she received growing up and as a young adult. She had an NDE in which she was told she could stay or come back, but if she stayed she would have to at some point come back to Earth and relive everything she had experienced up to that point. If she came back she would get the family she so desperately wanted.
This book is a little of her story, and then a bunch of aphorisms about life that she learned during and after her NDE. I find it charming.
If you know someone who is contemplating suicide, this short, inexpensive book may help them.
I had the privilege of knowing Sandra Rogers personally. She died in April, 2000; I believe it was 24 years to the day after her suicide attempt, from Hepatitis C, contracted from the blood transfusion used to save her life then. She did get her family, and her sons are now grown.
Sandra would have thought that even if her book helped just one person, that it would have been worth it writing it. I believe that it has helped and will help many people

What a wonderful book. One of the first books I read about near-death-experiences (NDE's). After attempting suicide and before she can be revived she had one of the most spiritually enlightening experiences I've ever read about. There were concepts discussed in this book that I have incorporated in my spiritual belief system, which I have never concieved of before. It is very easy to read with most of the book consisting of 3-4 page chapters that are answers to questions that she had during her experience. She passes along the answers to such deep questions like "Why do children have to suffer and die?" and "Is there a devil or hell?" I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in furthering their spiritual growth. God bless Sandra for sharing her revelations.

Over the years I have read dozens of books on Near Death Experiences and probably hundreds on spirituality and metaphysics. Yet this slim little volume is one I keep coming back to. It cuts to the chase with clearly organised chapters and bullet pointed topics (On Angels; On Anger and Hate; On Asking, Giving , and Recieving; On Bodies; On Children; On Death; On Free Will; On Kindness; On Love and God; On Other Gods; On Religion; On Self and Others; On Sin and Sorrow; On Society; On Values; On Wisdom.) While the biographical section is well written and inspiring you do not get the sense that this is a work of ego. It is a book written to transmit needed answers out into the world. It is simple yet profound.

This book has been helpful and comforting to me, as I grieve the loss of a dear friend to suicide. (In her early twenties).
Reading Sandra Rogers story, which begins with the startling statement, "In 1976 I attempted suicide by shooting myself in the chest," is an amazing look into a life of anquish.
The author's childhood reads like a bad novel. Her parents' divorce, then sexual abuse by her stepfather before her fifth-grade year, a pregnancy and miscarriage in tenth grade, then her grandmother's suicide, brought on the despair that led to her suicide attempt.
By a miracle, and dedicated doctors, she survived to tell the tale of her Near Death Experience (NDE). What she felt while dying, when she entered "The Light," is an awesome and encouraging lesson for all of us.
Rogers reports "I came into the presence of a brilliant, wonderfully warm and loving light. While I was in the presence of this Light I was shown a review of my life and all the events that brought me to that point."
She was then given a choice to return to the physical world, with the knowledge she could eventually have the family and love she yearned for, plus help others by sharing her story. She chose to return.
The lessons, which are divided into headings such as "On Anger and Hate," "On Angels," "On Children," "On Death," "On Bodies," etc. are full of profound spritual insights, written in simple terms.
This slim volume is rich in wisdom and has expanded my mind to the vast possibilities looming beyond this physical plane. I strongly recommend this little gem to all who are seeking a higher meaning for this life.

If you are stuck on a desert island and only allowed one book this is the one to take. If God says to you that in your entire life you are allowed exposure to only one spiritual text in whatever form again this is the one to take. Personally, I've met all of the big whigs in the NDE community and read all of their material. This is the one that stands head and talls above all others.

I was expecting to read a STORY about this woman's life and especially about her Near Death Experience. This book gives few details on either. Most of the chapters are long lists of "lessons" she learned - things like "Love entails giving" or "Pleasure is of the physical world. Happiness is of the spiritual world." Some people may enjoy this format, but I would rather extract these ideas for myself from a story.

These lessons are organized by topic into chapters (Angels, Anger, Asking, Bodies, Children, etc.) Check out the "Look Inside" feature to preview the book before you buy.
