Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Most of us at the very least wonder about our own immortality and many people are convinced that there is something beyond death, beyond the blackness of the grave. In Western Judaeo-Christian culture we absorb from an early age the idea that virtue now has its own reward - later. We are taught that the universe is essentially moral and that there are absolute human values.

But increasingly, science presents us with a picture of a much more mechanical universe in which there is no absolute morality and man has no purpose and no personal responsibility except to his culture and his biology. We no longer live in an age when faith is sufficient; we demand data, and we are driven by data. And it is data - data that apparently throws some light on our current concepts of Heaven and Hell - that the near-death experience seems to offer.

The near-death experience (NDE) is intriguing for two major reasons. First, it is very common and secondly, it is cross-cultural. The results of one NOP survey in America suggest that over 1 million Americans have 'seen the light'. Any experience that is so common must have had some influence on the way we think about life and death. Indeed, it could be the very engine that drives our ideas of an afterlife.

Many people believe that in the NDE we are given glimpses of Heaven (or Hell). But it is just as reasonable to assume that it is the NDE itself which may have shaped our very ideas about Heaven and Hell.

The experiences described in this book are all first-hand accounts from people who wrote to me or to David Lorimer, chairman of the International Association of Near Death Studies (UK), after a television programme, radio broadcast or magazine or newspaper article made them aware of our interest in near-death experiences.

We asked about the effects that the NDE had on the subject.
We also wanted to know how many people had read about NDEs before their experience. This was important, since if the subject already knew about the experience before it occurred, then it would be reasonable to suppose that his or her NDE could to some extent be coloured by this.

It is from this database that the statistics quoted in this book have been drawn, and the accounts given to me by these people and by others who have written to me since then form the basis of the book. But their accounts provided much more than mere statistics. Each one was special in its own way, and provided a personal testimony which I found both moving and utterly sincere. It is very seldom that an author can so truthfully say that without others a book could not have been written - in this case, without these people there would, indeed, have been no book. I feel privileged to have been allowed to read their accounts, and I am grateful to everyone who, by being willing to share their experience with me, has helped in this search to find the truth in the light

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Awakening Experience 11 janvier 2016
Par Rebecca of Amazon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Are you convinced that there has to be something beyond death? Is life just a school we graduate from when our life ends here on earth? Why do some people who have a near-death experience no longer feel any fear of death?

"The Truth in the Light" by Peter Fenwick was written in 1995 so this book is over 20 years old. Still it answers some questions. It also asks a lot of questions that skeptics would ask.

Some of the considerations include whether or not consciousness is limited to the brain. The author also asks whether the mind can function separately from the brain. There are some very thoughtful discussions about reality.

As the author says, the near-death experience is a highly subjective experience. Each story in this book is a little different although many experiencers say they went through a tunnel towards the light.

I felt this book had some of the best recollection I've ever read although there is not much about heaven besides talk of gardens.

The author is very good at analyzing the experiences although he doesn't always come to the right conclusions. He doesn't seem to believe in an afterlife although he's been presented with a ton of evidence. He does however seem to indicate that he'd be open to calling near-death experiences a mystical experience.

This book is mostly positive with only one chapter dedicated to negative near-death experiences. There was no typical hell experience or even anything close to biblical descriptions. This may give readers a false sense of security.

Other books I can recommend include:

Imagine Heaven: Near-Death Experiences, God's Promises, and the Exhilarating Future That Awaits You

Done.: What most religions don't tell you about the Bible

The Imagine heaven book gives more details about heaven than are in this book. And the Done book tells you how to get to heaven.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating, well researched, highly detailed book 28 janvier 2014
Par Timothy Riso - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I have heard Dr Peter Fenwick speak on the NDE many times. This is his book on the near death experience, first published in the mid 90s. It contains many highly detailed accounts.

Fenwick allows the experiencers to speak for themselves, while at the same time offering background information regarding their illness or death or traumatic circumstances. He also suggests interpretations without being dogmatic and his analysis and discussion are presented from an objective yet highly empathetic perspective. The result is that this is one of the best books on the topic but perhaps not that well known, at least here in the US.

The most fascinating is the case of Allan Pring, air traffic controller who had a very complex and deep NDE. It is movingly described in his own words. I would have liked even more detail.

The book arrived very quickly and in very good condition.

The one difficulty: there is an updated version of the book that was released in 2007. This is the original, published in 1995. The new version was offered on the site. However the original is an excellent book and I am satisfied.

A great deal of significant and profound work has been done in this field since 1995 and Dr. Fenwick is in the vanguard of those who are doing outstanding work. He has answered some of his own questions posed in this book in the years since. The work goes on.

Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 AN ENGLISH NEUROPSYCHIATRIST LOOKS AT NDEs 12 avril 2013
Par Steven H Propp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Dr. Peter Fenwick (born 1935) is a neuropsychiatrist from England; he and his wife Elizabeth have co-written other books such as The Art of Dying, Past Lives: An Investigation into Reincarnation Memories, and The Hidden Door: Understanding and Controlling Dreams.

He wrote in the Introduction to this 1995 book, "The experiences described in this book are all first-hand accounts from people who wrote to me or to David Lorimer, chairman of the International Association of Near Death Studies (UK) after a television programme, radio broadcast or magazine or newspaper article made them aware of our interest in near-death experiences... We asked 500 of those who wrote to answer a detailed questionnaire about their experiences... Over 350 people replied... It is from this database that the statistics quoted in this book have been drawn, and the accounts given to me by these people and by others who have written to me since then form the basis of the book." (Pg. 2, 4)

He suggests, "Many people believe that in the NDE we are given glimpses of Heaven (or Hell). But it is just as reasonable to assume that it is the NDE itself which may have shaped our very ideas about Heaven and Hell." (Pg. 1) Later, he records, "In most NDEs people have no difficulty in recognising friends and relatives quite easily, but in a few accounts people seem unable to describe the faces of the people they meet, or they describe them as faceless." (Pg. 203)

He notes, "Most experiences occurred during illness. The illnesses varied very widely but were usually severe though not always life-threatening." (Pg. 3) Later, he adds, "As well as being such a common feature of the near-death experience, OBEs also occur on their own, quite frequently and quite spontaneously, to people who are not near death at all. They can be induced by drugs (LSD and other psychedelic drugs, for example)." (Pg. 36)

He observes, "Although the 'being of light' always has spiritual significance, it is only seldom that people describe seeing a particular religious figure such as Christ. Even those people whose Christian faith is strong don't always see Christ." (Pg. 62) By contrast, "these [East] Indian experiences seem to have more in common with each other than they do with most Western experiences. None of the Indian subjects had an out-of-body experience and viewed his own physical body. Neither did they describe going down a tunnel. Instead, the subject is taken by 'messengers,' and... is finally brought or pushed back." (Pg. 161) He concludes, "Cultural differences undoubtedly exist, but on the whole they seem little greater than the individual differences due to personality, circumstances and religious beliefs... The common ground... is that the NDE seems to be an 'awakening' experience, often arousing a sense of spirituality and a stimulus for personal development." (Pg. 168)

He argues, "We have to postulate that the brain CAN retain the capacity for making images in unconsciousness and with the visual cortex damaged, and that when the memory circuits are 'down,' memory can be retained by some other means, as yet undiscovered." (Pg. 208) He adds, "There is some evidence to support the view that endorphins may be involved in the NDE. The people who have near-death experiences are often in great pain or under great stress---exactly the situations in which you would expect high levels of endorphins to be produced. So we can make a good case for the involvement of the endorphins." (Pg. 217)

This book will be of keen interest to anyone seriously studying near-death experiences.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book for those just learning about NDE's 11 juin 2013
Par D. Roberts - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I actually like his book "The Art of Dying" better than this one. However, this book is excellent for those just beginning to investigate NDE's because he puts in a lot of history and research information about the phenomena, and if you are a believer, it is what you've already read in many other books. I actually prefer Raymond Moody's books on NDE's, though this is a very well-written book and I would recommend it to a skeptic or someone who is just starting to study the subject.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Compelling and objective study of NDEs 29 avril 2010
Par far middle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is a pleasure to read, for several reasons. As others have noted, it is a very well written and objective study of Near-Death Experiences, based on some 350 case studies. The author explores why some of these experiences may be explainable by scientific means (for example, anoxia), but also points out that there are rather large inconsistencies/problems with any of these explanations, leaving the door open to the possibility that indeed what is happening is a "glimpse of heaven". 98% of the individuals who had the experience in his study had previously never heard of an "NDE", yet there is an amazing similarity to the experiences: the out-of-body experience, the travelling through a tunnel, the approaching a light or figure representing great joy and peace; the feeling of calm and happiness. All very reassuring to anyone who has thought about what is on "the other side"! Nearly every experience is extremely positive, and left the subject afterwards unafraid of death.

The fact that the subjects span a wide range of characteristics is also intriguing: old, young, religious, not religious, workingmen, ordinary people, etc.

Unexplainable aspects persist: why isn't every experience the same? Why do some of the experiences occur in serious but not necessarily life-threatening situations? Why do some people feel it was they who made the decision to "return" to their body, and others that the decision was made for them by some other entity?

It is a fascinating subject which explores some of the basic questions of life: is there a soul which persists after this life? If so, what happens to it?
