In the facsinating, mystical world of near-death experiences, Betty Eadie's testimony is most extraordinary. In her widely read bestseller Embraced by the Light, she claims she met and converses with the Lord Jesus Christ and received amazing revelations about spiritual progression, death, and the afterlife.
Was Eadie's experience for real? And what about the many other near-death testimonies that speak of visits to heaven or hell---are they credible? Should we believe their messages?
Doug Groothuis, a well-respected expert on new religious movements, takes us to the clear teaching of Scripture for some surprising answers. Along the way he clearly addresses the fears and questions many people have about death and what comes after.
Doug Groothuis, Ph.D., is Assistant Professor of Religion and Ethics at Denver Seminary and is a well known speaker and writer on the New Age movement. He has authored four other books, including Unmasking the New Age, Jesus in an Age of Controversy and Christianity That Counts.
