Revelations of Profound Love is to my mind now the best brief introduction to the real importance of near-death experiences and what people should know about them. It deserves to be near the top of any essential list of books on the NDE. Chock full of some of the most moving NDE accounts you will ever read, this is a book I simply cannot recommend strongly enough for anyone who wants to learn what NDEs have to teach all of us about the power of love. --Kenneth Ring, Ph.D., author of Lessons from the Light
Immersing oneself in these accounts of profound love can help readers expand their own sense of love. Reading them helped me remember my own near-death and other spiritual experiences that have enriched my life and enhanced my understanding of love as our purpose for being on earth. --Dr. Pam Kircher, M.D., author of Love is the Link: A Hospice Doctor Shares Her Experience of Near Death and Dying

The lower four start rating is because I could not read much of this book without having to take a break. This book, while an important read, is NOT a fast read.
I have read many books since, and talked to friends, acquaintances and some patients over the years who have had NDE's or similar experiences. I myself had a minor NDE after an accident a few years ago that provided me with subjective data (void plus tunnel and choice to return before reached end of tunnel) that helped further validate the reality of these experiences to my mind.
I have also read hundreds of raw NDE accounts on [...] or at the IANDS website or at NHNE website and others. In my own mind I was putting together the pieces of a vast jigsaw puzzle about the nature and meaning of this multiverse that we inhabit.
Thus I found Ellis' book excellent in that she has distilled the main message from the NDE literature. That we do exist in a multiverse where Love is the ultimate meaning and indeed makes the many worlds go round. Ellis writes with clear prose and the book is nicely ordered around longish in depth NDE accounts that illustrate different aspects of how Love operates backed by smaller excerpts from other accounts.
If you are open-minded and questioning this area and want to get the distilled wisdom of hundreds of NDE accounts and are not driven like some such as I to read all the raw accounts - this book does an excellent job researching the data for you. If you want to be inspired and comforted, this book also does that too, but without sentimentality or hype.
Those who are strongly wedded to a materialist paradigm or to a religious doctrine that specify doctrines of salvation that are less than complete unconditional Love - will struggle with this book and the data it presents. They are the ones who really need to read it, and some of them with more open minds and hearts hopefully will.
While the biggest focus of the book is the absolute and amazing love that is experienced during near-death experiences, the author focused on various themes related to that love, using stories and examples to support each. For instance, there is a chapter about the higher qualities of love, another about the many sources that love can emanate from, a chapter about the reason and a purpose for everything in our lives. The final chapter, the theme that is so strongly reinforced by all experiencers throughout the book, is that LOVE is the most important thing, even (and especially) here in our lives on earth.
I highly recommend this book, and it would be wonderful if everyone would read it. I believe that this book would change people's awareness about what is important in life and empower them to make "higher choices" in their lives, thereby bringing peace and harmony to many.
