about

This dramatic and sustained response to decades of research into near-death experiences (NDEs) is the first book to credibly bridge the gap between the competing factions of science and spirituality. Neither a religious argument touting NDEs as hard evidence for God, nor a scientific rebuke to religious interpretations, it balances investigation of these much-reported yet baffling phenomena, and brings fresh urgency to the study of our hopes for a life beyond.
Dr Mark Fox is a member of Lampeter University's Religious Experience Research Centre committee, and an active member researcher into religious and paranormal experience. He currently lectures in philosophy and religious studies at Joseph Chamberlain College in Birmingham.

Editorial Reviews

"People who live to tell of near-death experiences claim to remember the comings and goings of everything around them, even during their unconscious teetering on death's brink. They also seem to share the same script - silence, darkness, tunnels and, of course, heavenly light. The eerie similarities of their accounts make most of us consider the possibility of life after death and author Mark Fox has certainly given it serious thought. In Religion, he attempts to connect the latest research in near-death experiences to philosophical musings. His effort yields plenty of compelling first-person yarns, culled from more than 100 survivors.."-Psychology Today, June 2003
