I have always been fascinated with near death stories. 🙂 Being able to know a bit of something so spiritually beautiful and out of the ordinary makes me wonder and love God more. I have yet to read tons of other near death books but here are some of my favorites:
* Embraced by the Light by Betty Eadie – An enlightening description of what heaven looks like, what we were before we came into this world, what lies ahead for us in the afterlife and a beautiful explanation of other things unnatural and inexplainable in our human lives today.
This is still by far, one of my most favorite books of all time. 🙂
* Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo – Todd Burpo’s son, Colton who is at the time was 3 1/2 or 4, died for three minutes (earthly time) during operation. Unknowingly, for the 3 minutes that he has gone, he’s been transported into heaven and seen things inexplainable, wonderful and beyond our reach. Months after the operation, and being a kid as he is, Colton unintentionally tells bits and bits of pieces he encountered on heaven with Jesus, God, his dad’s granpa, his unborn sister, Jesus’ teachings and the future.
A light reading about heaven fit for children, teens and young adults.
* Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander M.D. – A Neurosurgeon’s profound explanation of heaven, of God, of supernaturalism and of the afterlife. Being a scientist and doctor himself, he at first was not so much into the vague reality of the world beyond our reach and relied much on scientific proofs. But after having coma for 7 days, he returned with a strong conviction of the spiritual and the fascinating realm of the supernatural. This is a beautiful book wherein Science and Religion harmoniously works together to give proof to heaven. I suppose this is the perfect book for those who have a hard time believing in God. This opens a wide range of possibilities and truths on God and all the supernatural realities linked with Him.
