Editorial Reviews


Excellent Book!, January 12, 2013
By MaryAnn "MaryAnn"
This review is from: Swallowed by Life: Mysteries of Death, Resurrection and the Eternal (Paperback)
Ididn't think I could ever read anything more gripping from Ada Brownell than`Swallowed by Life' . In this tract, her soul is laid bare for the reader. Eachpage is more intense than the last. You will find not a wasted paragraph, norsentence, nor word. Feel Brownell pain, explore her literary mind, rejoice inher new beginning and ponder the paradox of life.

In my mind, it's the best work she has ever penned and will move you from thefirst sentence to last. You'll truly be better for having taken the time toread it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Hope for the Grieving, July21, 2012
Jesse's Dad -
Having lost my 10 year old son, Jesse, to Burkitt'sLeukemia just over a year ago, Swallowed by Life by Ada Brownell echoes some ofthe very questions that I was asking after my son's death. I highly recommendit to those who are grieving and those who wish to come alongside someone whois grieving.

I especially enjoyed her thoughts on the personbeing more than just the body. This is illustrated wonderfully by examples ofbody parts and organs being removed, cells and tissues constantly beingreplaced, and yet, the person we are remains.

I also appreciated her take on Heaven

From the Back Cover

Do you know you are more than a physical body? An award-winning medical and religion writer, Ada Brownell--through her research after the death of her daughter--shows why we have hope for eternal life, not only from a Christian point of view, but because of physical evidence.
Of her 17 years as a journalist, the author spent the last seven before retiring on the medical beat at The Pueblo Chieftain in Colorado, reporting on discoveries about the human genome, neurology, mental illness, cancer, disease prevention, treatments, medications, and more. She also is a religion writer.
"I've always been interested in what happens when you die. Sometimes I need assurance of heaven. This book was helpful to me since I have a troubling diagnosis, and because we also lost a daughter. It helped us understand our feeling and cope with them."
--Don Shepherd, a 72-year-old businessman who entered eternal life May 1, 2011
This book is written for support groups, religion classes, people with chronic or terminal illness, individuals who fear death or are uncertain about it, the grieving and those who give them counsel.
