Paranormal: My Life In Pursuit Of The Afterlife

by Raymond Moody

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | July 4, 2013 | Hardcover

Paranormal: My Life In Pursuit Of The Afterlife is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.

From the bestselling author of Life After Life and pioneer researcher and leading authority on near-death experiences comes Paranormal, an intimate look at a lifetime spent fearlessly wrestling with humankind's most important and perplexing question:

What happens when we die?

Paranormal begins with a harrowing account of Moody's suicide attempt-due to an undiagnosed illness that led him into depression-and proceeds to explore his lifelong fascination with life beyond our bodies. Moody traces the roots of his obsession with the point of death and how, at age twenty-three, he launched the entirely new medical field of near-death studies. He went on to explore the world of past lives and possible reincarnation before stumbling into the fascinating realm of facilitated visions. Moody's rural research center, Theater of the Mind, dramatically advances paranormal research by melding ancient and modern techniques to arouse many of the transformative elements of the near-death experience in people who are still living.

After more than four decades of studying death and the possibility of an afterlife, Moody still sees endless promise in the fringes of psychological sciences, where he continues to seek answers to what happens to our souls after death.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Autobiography of NDE’s Pioneer It’s hard to believe that this author’s first book, Life After Life, was published almost four decades ago. I remember it being avidly discussed back then, but I wound up reading it just a few years ago. After having read it, I wondered how Dr. Moody got into this line of research in the first place. Well, it’s all here in this compelling autobiography of his. In this book, Dr. Moody recounts important events in his life – from early childhood to the present. The parts of his life that he discusses are mainly his research work on Near Death Experiences and related matters, but important issues in his personal life are also presented. Dr. Moody has written this book in a style that is very warm, honest, sincere and open-hearted. He recounts how he ended up doing this line of research, how it was received by medical professionals, religious authorities and the public and how his research has evolved over the years. This book should be of interest to anyone curious about the Near-Death-Experience phenomenon and how research in this field came about as recounted by its originator.

About the Book

Moody, the "grandfather" of the modern NDE (Near Death Experience) movement, was the first to describe the accounts of the bright light, the tunnel and the presence of loved ones waiting on the other side. In this chronicle of his lifetime of research into the after life, Moody explains how he stumbled onto these amazingly consistent stories by people who had died and come back to life.
