    Attended seminar of Dr. Ritchie's

    Dr. Ritchie is a man who makes an impression. Not only physically, even though an older man, he is very tall, still handsome with a very nice head of wavy hair. Thirty years as a GP and then he spent the rest of his working years as a psychiatrist. This book would normally be off-putting to an unbeliever but there is something so compelling about what he has to say that it forces you to stop and think about Jesus Christ and the fact that one day you will face him and hear the same question Dr. Ritchie did. It deepened my already existing faith. I have great respect for his mission now, that is to tell young people the effect that chemically altering your body and your mind will leave you open to some dire consequences. It will do so much good to inspire those seeking a faith to fill that empty spot that never goes away until you have a one on one meeting with Jesus Christ.

    Changed My Life's Focus

    As a relative of Dr. Ritchie, I have been very fortunate to hear him personally discuss his near death experience. Reading Dr. Ritchie's books ('Return From Tomorrow' and 'Ordered to Return: My Life After Dying') are a wonderful substitute for those who are unable to hear him personally relate his experience. It is an interesting dedication note that hearing Dr. Ritchie's NDE, was the seed for Dr. Raymond Moody's book, 'Life After Life'. Dr. Ritchie's book includes his encounter with Christ, a review of his own life and its meaning, and a visit to various spiritual realms. This book helped me to understand that life is more than merely a physical existence it is also a spiritual journey. Dr. Ritchie's experience made Christ real and personal. It helped me to change the focus of my life by better understanding the purpose of my life.

    The Truth

    If you are searching for the truth in this whole mysterious thing called life, you will want to read this book. The author is believable and his story is something that fits into my outlook on why I am here. I have been a seeker of truth all of my life and have read many books on the subject. I would recommend this book to anyone who is not afraid of hearing the truth. I find myself refering back to chapters at times just so I can tell others about the book. This is a must-read.
