I could not put the book down. My family read it after me. The book is about Betty Eadie's journey through death and beyond. What she saw when she was dead before she was brought back to life. Amazing little book.
I think its a good take on the near death experience. The part I didn't really like was the religious emphasis but alot of what was written sans her personal sensation of dying and coming back , I felt I had read it before in other new age books.
It has wonderful detail and gives hope to its readers that we are here for a reason and not just randomly.
Embraced by the Light is an inspirational map of the afterlife framed in the moment of Eadie's death, and presents a possible answer to the big question, "Why are we here?" An easy read, its subtitle could have been "The Average Person's Guide to Near-Death Experiences." Although heavily filtered through Eadie's Christian worldview, her vision of the afterlife does not include a wrathful deity, but a figure of love and compassion. Some readers may find Eadie's repeated Christian references bothersome, and Embraced by the Light will undoubtedly raise a lot of questions along the lines of "What about reincarnation?" and "What happens to people who are not Christians?"
I don't necessarily disagree with, or discount Ms. Eadie's book, I merely believe we must all reach our own truths....
