Overview

A unique look at near-death experiences (NDEs) is presented in Beyond Death's Door. It considers NDEs in light of revealed truth, finding enlightening and exciting similarities to LDS doctrines on the afterlife.

'We were amazed at the similarities and consistencies between near-death accounts and the doctrines of the restored gospel,' the authors report, following years of careful research. Readers will be fascinated by the accounts, which include descriptions of a loving 'being of light'; having a perfect spirit body; the rapid, graphic review of one's mortal life; meeting with deceased loved ones; and spirits in radiant white robes.

Quoting scripture and the words of modern prophets, the authors show where LDS doctrine seems to support NDE reports and suggest possible explanations for NDEr perceptions that Latter-day Saint readers might question. Moreover, they offer comforting insights into death and the spirit world.
