Begun in 1994, The Atlanta Study is the first comprehensive investigation of its kind into near-death experiences (NDEs). The study's name hardly captures what lies behind it: life-and-death dramas played out in operating rooms and hospital beds - and simultaneous events unseen by medical personnel but reported with astonishing clarity and conviction by nearly 50 individuals who returned from death's door.
Now the founder of The Atlanta Study, Dr. Michael Sabom, reveals their impact on the people who have experienced them. From both medical and personal perspectives, he shares the electrifying stories of men and women from all walks of life and religious persuasions. He explores the clinical effect of the NDE on survival and healing and discloses surprising findings. He questions some common conclusions about NDEs. And he scrutinizes near-death experiences in the light of what the Bible has to say about death and dying, the realities of light and darkness, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Too clinical for my taste...
If there were more real-life stories and a LOT less scientific talk.
I had thought this was going to be a collection of NDE (Near Death Experience) stories, but what it turned out to be - in my opinion - was some stories sprinkled in with a very clinical possible explanation for NDE's. I kept listening thinking, hoping, it would get better, but it just didn't — for me. If you think you would enjoy a scientific commentary on the mysteries of the mind, body and/or soul, then you'll probably like this one. It just wasn't what I was looking for... Next time, I'll read the reviews more carefully.
