Glimpses of Eternity: Sharing a Loved Ones Passage from This Life to the Next by Raymond A. Moody Jr.This is a very personal topic for me. I came across this book after I had my own Shared Death Experience. I loved that I finally had a name for the metaphysical things that happened to me when my aunt was dying. I SO wanted to like this book, but it fell short on my expectations. I have lots of respect for Raymond Moody and I have liked his other books, but I felt the storytelling here was a bit lazy. Many of the tales started with I was at a conference and someone came up to me and told me this story.... I wanted something more in depth.
Glimpses of Eternity: Sharing a Loved One's Passage from This Life to the Next
While the field has developed at a prodigious rate, he has maintained his reputation as an ambassador for the subject, his expertise in both philosophy and medicine having made him well-placed to analyse and discuss this enigmatic phenomenon. The book is heavy on anecdote, in keeping with its tentative, exploratory nature, but the weight of testimony suggests that there is something happening beyond fantasy that appears, like the NDE, to give a glimpse of some state beyond death into which the dying person is entering. Where shared-death experiences crucially differ from NDEs is that the reporters are healthy individuals and cannot be charged with brain malfunction. Moody says that, as is the case with the NDE, not everybody goes through the same elements in a fixed pattern, but there is a core set which witnesses recount time after time that implies something real. Further, the fact the healthy can participate in the passing of someone suggests the shared death experience is more important than the NDE in providing evidence of an afterlife as it is immune to reductionist medical explanations.
