Description du produit

Revue de presse

“Dr. Jeff Long and journalist Paul Perry have done a phenomenal job in clarifying current events in the study of near-death experiences. Dr. Long’s work is leading us closer to a rational solution of the afterlife mystery.” (Raymond Moody, M.D., Ph.D., author of Life after Life)

“This important book about near-death experiences provides compelling evidence that mind and consciousness cannot be reduced to brain activity.” (Mario Beauregard, Ph.D., Neuroscientist at the University of Montreal and co-author of The Spiritual Brain)

“If someone asked for proof that life after death exists, refer them to this book. Dr. Long and Paul Perry have gone way beyond faith and into science, providing us with well-documented proof of what we have known absolutely for 35 years - there is life after death.” (Dannion and Kathryn Brinkley, authors of Saved by the Light and Secrets of the Light)

“Is there life after death? ...Radiation oncologist Dr. Jeffrey Long argues that if you look at the scientific evidence, the answer is unequivocally yes. Drawing on a decade’s worth of research on near-death experiences... he makes the case for that controversial conclusion.” (Time.com)

“Long answers skeptics . . . does a fine job of summarizing some of the transformative changes from NDEs.... The end result of all this testimony, according to Long, is ‘there is life after death.’” (Spirituality and Practice)

Présentation de l'éditeur

“There is currently more scientific evidence to the reality of near death experience (NDE) than there is for how to effectively treat certain forms of cancer,” states radiation oncologist Dr. Jeffrey Long is his groundbreaking new book Evidence of the Afterlife. In 1998 Dr. Long and his wife, Jody, began the Near Death Experience Research Foundation with the goal of creating a forum for near death “experiencers” to share their stories. Grounded in first-hand evidence culled from over 1,600 verified NDE accounts, Evidence of the Afterlife presents the strongest argument yet for the underlying truth of those who have died and returned to share their tales.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gamechanger for an athiest-loved the evidence 31 juillet 2012
Par Connectedray - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I have read this book, twice now. At first reading was a year or so ago. After taking a research methods class, I now fully understand Dr. Long and Paul Perry's scientific method on handing out a survey to people. I have read the reviews on amazon and I have to finally speak up! For the low reviews, I completely disagree that this book is not presenting evidence. In any clinical study, the researcher hands out surveys to study inidvidual reactions to whatever is being tested. In this case, the book Evidence of the Afterlife, "Near Death Experiences" are what is being tested by handing out surveys. Anyone that is saying it takes faith to believe in this book, has clearly not evaluated the evidence that is presented. It's not grey evidence, its black and white. Either you believe 613 people following the scientific method of research and analyzing the data recieved by the surveys or you don't. Its really that simple. It's not a matter of faith, it's a matter that this book is a game changer for an athiest. While this is far from a religious convert book, it does give hope in a seemingly "hopeless" afterlife world we live in. One key point that I think all readers of this book should be aware of is that no one has ever, to my knowledge or "Google's" knowledge had a near death experience in their physical bodies and came back to report that they die and die in their physical bodies. They all report an Out of Body experience. That is the evidence, like it or not you either believe in the science of the book and of all the data collected or not. I typically do not get into debates over matters and nor am I trying to present a debate here, but I would hope that some of these negative reviews can have a glimmer of light shed on to them. I know from being an athiest that this book is a game changer and the evidence presented for someone like me was infallible!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Get ready to be changed forever 13 mai 2017
Par Barbara L. Frey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I don't want to type a long winded review though I definitely could. I'm so glad I decided to read this. This was first time in my 44 years of life I ever actually read or heard about an NDE and it's not even just the evidence presented in the book, but also something deep inside me that is telling me this is real and I should believe it. I have come to trust my intuition. We were wired with it for a reason. I don't believe for a minute that hundreds and even thousands of people either made this up or hallucinate. People wouldn't have that Similar of a hallucination, that doesn't even make sense. I have never had a near death experience but I feel profoundly changed as a person. I started changing about 17 months ago when some really bad stuff happened in my life and I discovered the power of meditation. From there I began a transformation I can only describe as a spiritual awakening and one thing after another led to more questions. I think we are meant to ask these questions in our life. It feels right. Like I'm on the path I'm supposed to be. Then this book came to me. Seemingly just at the right time and it has answered more questions and filled more gaps. I am changed forever and continuing to change and that's a good thing. Keep an open mind and an open heart. If you remain a skeptic you may miss out on many wonderful things. Also maybe your chi is blocked. We are spiritual beings and the way society is today so far away from everything that is important in life it makes it almost automatic to dismiss such views because they just don't fit into what you've been told to believe your whole life. That's cognitive dissonance. Think back to when you picked up your beliefs about the world. Likely most of them were when you were a toddler when you first started programming your neural pathways that shaped who you are today. You have the power to choose what you want to believe, what feels true to you. Don't let what others told you to believe affect your perception of these peoples stories. I frequently was brought to tears, happy tears, while reading this and something told me that this in fact was true. So much for this not being long winded but if I can help at least one other person feel the profound change I feel from reading this then it was worth it. I too feared death my entire life. I don't feel that anymore.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Still slightly agnostic on beliefs of the afterlife, but this book helped me lean towards belief 2 janvier 2016
Par Katie Marie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I apologize in advance for not being very good at giving reviews.

I've been reading the experiences of NDErs on websites like Jeffrey Long's for years now. NDE's fascinated me from a pretty young age (I believe I started looking into them at age 14-15). Over the years I became more and more agnostic in my beliefs - I wanted to believe, but I had my doubts.

This book reminded me of why I believed in my younger years. The stories you find on www.nderf.org and in this book are fascinating to say the least. And reading it helped me feel better about the end of life. NDE stories have that affect on me - I view them as a positive sign that we will all receive a positive end to our physical lives. Either they prove the afterlife as a very real and wonderfully beautiful place, or it proves that our brains give us a beautiful way to end our existence. Obviously Jeffrey Long believes the former. I'm still a bit agnostic myself, but lean towards the former as well. Either scenario gives me some hope - which is the beauty of NDE stories, in my opinion.

As for the book: I do like that Dr. Long addressed common skeptical responses. I wish that he addressed more, or maybe even had a chapter dedicated to responses to skeptics.

I found his 9 points to be rather compelling. Especially the fact that people have had verified OBE, and that those born blind have a concept of "seeing" in their NDE's - something they cannot do in dreams. But I do wish he had more of a sample size for certain points: like the chapters about children and non-western NDE's. Dr. Long could only deal with what information he had, but I still did raise a few eyebrows on some of the conclusions he jumped to given such a small sample size, especially for the children and Non-Western NDE chapters. I do wonder if a larger amount of stories to include in the study could have altered any corresponding similarities or add to statistically significant differences between groups (i.e.: Comparing adult NDEs to child NDEs)

Otherwise I think this is a must read for anyone who is interested in NDE stories and research. I'm definitely glad I gave this book a chance. It renewed my interest in NDE stories.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I want this researcher's conclusions to be true-- but are they? 7 juin 2017

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Who has not wondered about what really is the final disposition of this humanoid center of biological and consciousness activity [or person] we each call ' I '...what happens upon the irreversible dissolution of our individual current living moving thinking form of existence? The biological part is quick to begin a quite obvious return to 'ashes and dust.' What about the thinking part that says 'me?' What about that light of consciousness in which everything does appear and without which nothing can be said to exist at all-- not even time and space? Does that blink out and return entirely to a voided existence as if it had never been at all? Is it then the same total degree of absolute nothingness we think went on before we were ever born?

We don't worry about all that 'time' [countless eons] that passed uneventfully [for us] before we ever came to be; before we came to understand that, 'hey, I exist here in this world with all these others and I'm another individual among these vast numbers of others that are also pretty much just like me...'

When we do die, dissolve, cease, disappear from physical life, do we continue on? Without the body but totally alive in consciousness?
In this book by Dr. Jeffrey Long, the conclusion is a definite resounding, yes, by golly, we really will just go right on being the same person we now believe ourselves to be. Not only that, as if that were not good news enough, we will have advanced to, or awakened to, a higher better brighter state of existence than we would have ever imagined could possibly be. Such is the firm conclusion of Dr. Long. I know a great many people agree with him. Is it mostly just wishful thinking or is there substantial evidence to indicate actual eternal life?

What is true? I'm very sure I do not know. I want this Doc to be correct in his conclusions but is he really? Yes, there are certain peculiar mysterious occurrences or experiences people who were near death do report and remember upon returning to the more normal stable everyday state of consciousness. This I do not doubt. But does that really prove there is an extraordinary higher state of eternal being for each and every one of us when our physical human state of being is no longer functional-- no longer viable? I can hardly accept [don't accept] that these recorded occurrences of mysterious mind-states actually proves the contention that we not only go on living when we die but are actually much improved then, and happier. I wish it were so, I hope it is, but just simply can not let go of my skepticism. If it sounds too good to be true....

The brain contains depths and mysteries no one can fully explain. The same can be said of the entire universe and especially of consciousness itself. Perhaps [as I believe] we have so far in human history come to know only the merest hint of what the totality of reality really is, has been, will be. But what I think doesn't matter, what do you think? This book may help you decide for yourself. Anyway, I do believe it's natural and healthy to consider these things and thereby get ever more in touch with our own deepest inner selves. Perhaps we reach a point where the yes or no of these questions really don't mean much anymore, don't really matter, because we see that the present moment, here and now, is perfect, full of bliss, and whatever the 'future' may hold is just fine. We can only live one life at a time-- that is certain. So we should probably make the best of this life, this world, knowing that whatever mysterious energy brought us into our current life or state of being, will be quite capable of providing for any further forms of existence there may be.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An affirmation of eternity 17 juin 2014
Par KmVictorian - Publié sur Amazon.com

Life does not end when our physical bodies die. That is the message of Jeffrey Long’s “Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences.”

Dr. Long, a radiation oncologist, has established the Near Death Experience Research Foundation, as well as a website for people to share their experiences. In “Evidence of the Afterlife,” he has used widespread sampling of NDE accounts as told by the people these stories actually happened to.

The stories were analyzed and evaluated carefully to avoid bias based on race or religion. Long says that his study found that what people discovered in their near-death experience about “...God, love, afterlife...forgiveness, and many other concepts is strikingly consistent across cultures, races, and creeds.”

After numerous chapters of scientific measurements, I must confess that the objective, data-driven writing style got rather dry. Consequently I went to the author’s website, which contains hundreds of original documents--first-person accounts on which Long’s studies are based. These stories are wonderfully revealing, often mysterious.

One question had troubled me a little in reading the book: Why are all the book’s stories such glowing testimonials, with little said of people who may have had scary near-death experiences? On this missing subject, the book refers readers to the website. There, sure enough, are a few accounts of bad experiences, of a frightening darkness and abandonment. I noted in one website account even a suggestion of a demonic presence. These “less happy” accounts are available if readers want to search through the mass of positive NDEs to find the roughly ten percent that may contain frightening or negative passages.

I recommend this unusual book and its companion website to readers of any religious persuasion who are able to lay aside for a moment their pre-conceived ideas, in order to understand what the evidence cited by the author seems to show.
