Religion, Spirituality and the Future of Near Death-Studies Notes Bibliography

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.
