What do near death experiences tell us about life after death? Rev John Spooner believes in Heaven and the afterlife, but he is careful not to let Christian doctrine get in the way of an open-minded inquiry about what death has in store for us all. He quotes people who came back from the dead claiming knowledge of the other side. This worldwide phenomenon is examined using expert research, gripping first hand testimony, analysis of scripture and the views of sceptics and various religions.
Rev John William Spooner is an Anglican priest, and Hon. Chaplain at St. James, Sydney, Healing Ministry. He has previously written histories of churches and institutions. He is donating all his proceeds to St Laurence House, a charity which helps homeless teenagers.
