If you, like me, read lots about Near Death Experiences, you could easily come to the conclusion that this is a new modern phenomenon, since the publication of Raymond Moody’s book Life after Life in 1975. In this great anthology “In Times of War: Messages of Wisdom from Soldiers in the Afterlife’ we hear from a number of ordinary soldiers who have experienced or who are in the afterlife and communicate with us that after death on the battle field, they are still very much alive. Stories from one of the earliest near-death experiencers, Er written in 360 BC, through stories from WW I & II and Vietnam.Continue reading “In Times of War- Messages of Wisdom from Soldiers in the Afterlife – Edited by Jonathan Beecher”
I just finished re-reading this fascinating book which I originally read many years ago. I can’t remember if it was this book which saved me from being a “Vegetarian”. My recollection of when I did my 18 months as a vegetarian is that it was before this book was published in 2009. My motivation to be a vegetarian was spiritual. I kept reading in lots of different places that to be spiritual and to be treading the spiritual paths one needed to be a vegetarian, (and a vegan was even better). My excursion into vegetarianism only lasted 18 months as my health slowly deteriorated, and my wife encouraged me to start eating meat again. She had been doing lots of reading and found that my body and blood type were not ideally suited to being a vegetarian, and that the symptoms I was having (constant tiredness, and not being able to get warm (which I still suffer from occasionally)) were all detailed as side effects of a vegetarian diet.Continue reading “The Vegetarian Myth – Lierre Keith”
Sheila’s book Proof of Life which I reviewed here, now has a trailer.
Jeff Olsen was in a car crash in which he lost his wife and youngest son. At the time of the accident, he died, had a NDE and saw his dead wife’s soul. His wife encouraged him to go back for his older son. This book is part autobiographical, so you need to get through those details before you get to the NDE part of the story, it is good setup information.

In this book a 6 year old boy is in a terrible car wreck, with his father. He has a NDE, and stays connected with the after life whilst in Hospital, seeing angles and having miraculous healing. I did enjoy this book, but was disappointed to find on the internet that the boy, now grown up, has recanted his side of the story, claiming he made it all up. So does this mean this whole book should now be thrown away? I don’t know, but maybe if we read it as a piece of fiction it can still be a useful book.
