In his New York Times bestselling book Evidence of the Afterlife, Dr. Jeffrey Long stunned readers by presenting findings from his work at the Near Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF), where he gathered over 1,300 accounts of near-death experiences (NDEs) from all over the world, the majority of which pointed toward a strong scientific case that there was life after death.
Long has continued to do work with this database, and more than doubled the number of near-death experience accounts to over 3,000, making it the largest near-death experience study in history. Once again, the evidence overwhelmingly points to the existence of an afterlife, but this time Long goes a step further to give another startling scientific finding: that God exists and there is amazing consistency about what God is like!
After studying 3,000 cases, Long found that though there are a wide variety of differences in how people experience NDE's (some see a bright light, others go through a tunnel, still others experience a review of their life), there was one point on which many of the accounts were uniform: a description of God. Spectacularly, regardless of religion, race, or anything else, people experienced a God who radiated love and grace. This book will expand upon Long's findings about the afterlife and will be the first deep scientific exploration of those who have reported going to the frontier of heaven, met God, and have returned to report their journey.
