Format: Paperback
How does one begin to review a book such as this? We all have been touched in one way or another by the loss of someone we have loved and was dear to us.
When I received this book for review I ravished it from cover to cover, however it has taken me several weeks to begin to write for you what I have found within it's covers.
The author takes a look at sixty-two near-death experiences and shares them with the reader. They range in topics from God, Heaven, Hell, Reincarnation and Suicide, to name a few.
What did I feel as I read these experiences.
Oh dear reader, such a mixture of emotions that it is hard for me to express them to you.
Joy, sadness, fear and hope are just a few that raced through my being as I devoured this work.
Are these true? Did our brethren of this human race truly see into the next world?
What awaits each one of us as we walk through that portal?
Does it really matter what faith we are or how good or bad we are in this life?
That is for you to decide! I believe I already know that answer!
To me this book was one that only affirmed my belief in a far better world than I am in now. I smile with anticipation at the thought of seeing my Savior and my loved ones on the day of my departure from this earth.
Death is something we will all face. You can't buy your way out of it or talk your way out of it. This book, in my opinion will help to ease your fears and may just make you a little jealous of those who have already made this wonderful journey. Highly recommended!

In spite of the "Disappointing" and "Don't Recommend To Christians" reviews, I found the personal accounts of out-of-body spirit experiences revealing. Obviously Mr. Jasso is trying to view this book (and probably any other on NDE's) through "where's Jesus?" glasses. The concept of spirits continuing on after one or more body deaths is far far older than Christianity, and is a concept that used to be embraced in the Bible, until it was expunged around the year 530 by the then-Pope and others. And who says spirits have to stick around this planet when they leave a body? It's logical that, a spirit not being subject to things like eating and breathing, they could hang out anywhere. I didn't feel that the author/collector tweeked the accounts at all, they are all from the minds and memories of the spirits (humans) who experienced it themselves. The fact that they rock people's pre-programmed ideas of "heaven", "hell", and other things religious should be an eye-opener, not a cause to retreat into the citadel of fixed ideas. That's how we end up with things like Inquisitions. I think Kevin Williams' evaluations of what the experiences "meant" in relation to Christ, God, or any angle of any religion is beside the point. The people felt and saw what they felt and saw. I am not particularly Christian and found his evaluations of the experiences along a Christian angle a bit distracting. But they work as a reference point to a "bigger spirit", which every religion has embraced. I think we will all get a big surprise when we "pop out".Read more ›

I enjoyed Mr. Williams book because it contains information about several near death experiences and expresses the insights the author has gained from studying them.
This is a great book for the person who wants to learn more about the NDE because it allows the reader an opportunity to fashion their own opinion about the phenomena from the viewpoints of many, instead of just one person.
Thank You Kevin!

Excellent book! I absolutely loved it. My favorite part was the end of the book. Kevin takes his considerable expertise in Christianity and the bible and shows how the god of the near death experience is the god of the bible. He also shows how the bible contains ideas such as universal redemption (everyone goes to heaven) (Jesus did die for everyone's sins for all time). Also how the bible contains the idea of reincarnation with Elijah the prophet returning as John the baptist. But the best part of the book is the constant emphasis on unconditional unselfish love. I really recommend Jon Peniel's book "The Lost Teachings of Atlantis" to those who like this book. Kevin's book really awakened me in many ways and I felt more loving than I had in a long time after reading it. Go Get this book! You won't regret it!

You could read these reviews and make a decision based on them on whether the book is good or bad. Or you could pick it up, read it, and discover deep within yourself, that what is said makes is the truth, and more importantly that it makes sense and makes you feel good. I believe the Bible says, when something feels good, it is the Holy Spirit working within you to reveal the truth.

I couldnt stop reading this book. I stopped doing everything else and felt a need and utter attraction to the words of this book. I smiled, laughed, and gaped with my mouth hanging open throughout the book. I felt good inside, and for the first time, I can can believe, because what is written, makes absolute sense. For we knew everything before we came to this world, and we will know everything again when we leave it. Subconciously, deep down, that knowledge is still there, and it is at times like this, when you read a book like this, that you feel the joy and excitment when you know that what you are reading is the truth, you just know.

This book, or at least, the ideas and message of this book, may be humanity's single most important piece of writing since mankind started writing and reading.

I encourage you strongly, to pick it up, read it, and may you come to the realization that Life is God, Love is God, and everything that exists is God. And that Death is no different than when we wake up from our dreams and into what we call "reality" or than when we fall asleep and leave "reality" and awaken in the dream world.
