While there is a lot of literature about NDE’s, it is still easy to dismiss them as the result of a brain in trauma, or a sort of dream, sometimes just because it is too much to believe that life after death can exist. Jens Amberts tackles this scepticism with facts and figures, analysing the accounts of NDEs alongside the beliefs of those that experienced them, both before and after the event. He finds that not only are the accounts related by people who would be characterised as sceptics and agnostics, but that their accounts have a certain commonality, feeling “realer than real” and involving heightened senses and an overwhelming feeling of love and peace. Because he bases his argument on four fundamental facts gleaned from actual testimonies, it is highly persuasive and thought provoking. I think it’s a book many of us will be drawn to read.
