Raymond Moody, author of the multimillion copy best-seller, Life After Life, reveals new results from his lifelong investigation of what happens when we die. Raymond Moody revolutionized the way we think about death with his first book, Life After Life, which was stories of people who died and then returned to life. Going through a tunnel, encountering an angelic being or having an out-of-body experience are hallmarks of what Moody termed a 'near death experience.' Since the publication of his multimillion copy best-seller, hundreds of thousands of people have contacted Moody to share their own experiences. The startling pattern that Moody discovered is that at the time of death, loved ones also have inexplicable experiences. Glimpses of Eternity is the first book to talk about the phenomenon of 'shared death experiences.' Readers will discover deathbed moments when entire families see the light or the room changes shape. Others tell of seeing a film like review of a loved one's life and learning things that they could never have known otherwise. The stories are at once a comfort and a mystery, giving us a new understanding of the journey that we will take at the end of our lives.

If you know anything about near-death experience, you know Moody; he’s been on the cutting edge of the research since the publication of his first book, Life after Life (1975). Now he takes the phenomenon to another level. In the 1980s, Moody began hearing about shared-death experiences; friends, family, and medical personal go along with the dying as they are surrounded by the light, taken through the tunnel, and sometimes even take part in the life review. Most of the book comprises firsthand accounts that tell a common story. Then Moody takes on some of the most-asked questions raised by the idea of shared-death experiences: Do they tell us something new about the afterlife? Do you have to be religious to have the experience? How do you know people who claim to have had shared-death experiences aren’t lying? Moody also theorizes on what might explain these experiences and how shared-death experiences might be the ancient basis for religion. Nonbelievers will scoff, but as Moody notes, “I think it’s good for mankind to have a hearty dose of the unexplained.” --Ilene Cooper
