A thought-provoking examination of near-death experiences as a window into the afterlife. Does heaven exist? What is it like? Can you get to heaven if you've been bad? Will you see your loved ones and relatives there? Journalist Mally Cox-Chapman explores these and other questions in her rigorous probe of near-death experiences. Based on interviews with more than fifty experiencers, The Case for Heaven profiles not only brushes with heaven but also the response that is almost universal among those who've lived to tell: an unwavering commitment to love and service and the lifting of any fear of death. Almost all near-death experiencers share an unshakable belief in the afterlife, yet most researchers in the field resist speculating what near-death experiencers might tell us about a possible afterlife. The Case for Heaven affords a comprehensive view of such experiences with precisely that aim in mind: to show what they can suggest to us about the nature of heaven.
