Overview

Glimpsing Heaven: The Stories and Science of Life After Death by Judy Bachrach

If you caught a glimpse of heaven, would you choose to come back to life? Investigative journalist Judy Bachrach has collected accounts of those who died and then returned to life with lucid, vivid memories of what occurred while they were dead, and the conclusions are astonishing. Clinical death—the moment when the heart stops beating and brain stem activity ceases—is not necessarily the end of consciousness, as a number of doctors are now beginning to concede. Hundreds of thousands of fascinating post-death experiences have been documented, and for many who have died and returned, life is forever changed. These days, an increasing number of scientific researchers are turning their studies to people who have experienced what the author calls death travels — putting stock and credence in the sights, encounters, and exciting experiences reported by those who return from the dead. Through interviews with scores of these “death travelers,” and with physicians, nurses, and scientists unraveling the mysteries of the afterlife, Bachrach redefines the meaning of both life and death. Glimpsing Heaven reveals both the uncertainty and the surprising joys of life after death.

This was a fast and fascinating read. I appreciated that the author profiled people who'd had very good experiences with death, but didn't exclude a couple who did not. It was all interesting and often moving. The stories seem to corroborate the idea that I've heard in Science of Mind, The Course in Miracles, and other so-called "new age" type philosophies, that our energy always was, is and always will be. Nothing kills the soul. I recommend this book to anyone who's grieving the loss of a loved one. I'd also like to recommend the book When God Stopped Keeping Score. It is a moving testament to forgiveness.

To me, there wasn't an easy flow of the material. The writing seemed a little disjointed and disorganized. Of course hearing about near death experiences is always an interesting topic but you won't learn anything new here that isn't readily available on the internet.
