Publisher's Summary

Based on the largest near-death experience study in history, involving 3,000 people from diverse backgrounds and religious traditions, including nonbelievers, God and the Afterlife presents startling evidence that a supreme being exists - and there is amazing consistency about what he is like.

In his best-selling book Evidence of the Afterlife, Dr. Jefferey Long showed us that there is a strong scientific case for life after death. Now he goes further, revealing evidence that God is real. At the Near Death Experience Research Foundation, Dr. Long studied the stories of thousands of people who have journeyed to the afterlife. Though there are a wide variety of differences in how people experience NDEs - some see a bright light, others go through a tunnel, still others experience reviews of their lives - he discovered that many of the accounts shared a remarkably similar description of God: a supreme being who radiated love and grace.

Expanding on his analysis begun in Evidence of the Afterlife, God and the Afterlife is the first intensive exploration of the people who have reported going to the frontier of heaven and meeting God and have returned to share their journeys. Groundbreaking and profound, it provides new insight into the human experience and expands our notions of mortality, offering possibility, hope, and comfort.

Fascinating stories of seeing behind the veil...

I loved this book! The way this book was written was how I thought “Evidence of the Afterlife” would have been written-with more case studies as examples. It gave me a deeper understanding of the book and filled me with hope. The stories were so fascinating and gave so much deep insight. My nana recently passed away in May and that’s what got me started on this path toward this book. I’ve always been fascinated by NDEs and nana had actually had one in 82’ or 83’- not long after she married Papa. She went into anaphylaxis when she took medicine that had never caused an allergic reaction before. She left her body and could hear Papa begging her to stay with him. She ended up on a fence. One side felt amazing but she was drawn to the other side which led to being back in her body here on Earth. I feel a lot more at peace and hope knowing she’s up there in Heaven and I’ll see her one day! I’ve always had strong faith in Christ so I wasn’t surprised to know He’s very much alive and real. The book just confirmed it further.

Interesting but a bit light

Would you listen to God and the Afterlife again? Why?

Probably not. It was interesting enough to listen to – NDE subject matter is fascinating almost without exception – but I felt this book didn't really contain any substantial insights that I would not have previously thought. Hence, I'm unlikely to re-listen to this book, although I would recommend this to anyone interested in NDEs.

What other book might you compare God and the Afterlife to and why?

This very much felt like the part II to Jeffrey Long's first book, Evidence of Afterlife, and indeed, this very much is the part II.

What does Walter Dixon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Clean performance.. it was appropriate for this book; an annoying reader can destroy an otherwise good book. But since this book didn't really have "characters", there was only so much a reader could do.

Stories like these changed my life so positively-

Dr. Long has been doing an amazing study on NDE and bringing forth stories on his site NDERF and through this book is life changing. I do wish Dr. Long was narrating it though, he's got such an awesome voice and when you hear him telling the stories (he's been on many radio shows and podcasts) his passion, excitement and his knowledge flow through and increases the joy from what he's learning and teaching!

Interesting stats on people who experienced "God"

Actual data collected from numerous Near Death Experiencers is considered here with regard to those people who experienced "God"

Here, though, "God" is not a bearded old man sitting on a throne, but comes in many forms that - no matter what the form experienced - is still described by the respondent as "God" or the creator, or the source, or even by one as "The Big Cheese"

The statistics are considered as a whole, and then broken down. Interestingly, the experience wasn't predetermined by a person's belief system before the NDE. And, even if someone was a "believer" before their NDE, that didn't mean they were going to experience "God" and even "non-believers" could have the experience.

The book is a great analysis of the reports gathered, by using questionnaires. The numbers as a whole and their percentage breakdowns are discussed, analyzed, and there are also dips into various individuals stories of their encounter with "God" and their experiences are shared within the book.

Too Many Stats, Not Enough Story

Narration was good and research was also well done. I would have liked it better if there was more details about the subjects.

Robotic NOT Hypnotic

Oh my goodness, I seriously want to like this book but the audio is SO hard to listen to. The narrator is SO f*cking ROBOTIC. In a subject where there's an innate sense of intuition and a great need for empathy the narrators voice cuts through the body and mind being able to relax and experience, let alone absorb and learn. Personal opinion.

Seems heavy on the Christian slant on testimony

Would have loved to heard more of the science and the after effects of NDE

It's was great for NDE info

I enjoyed that you got to hear snippets of a bunch of different stories. It was enjoyable and fit in well with other NDE books I've read.

very interesting concepts

easy to listen to, non judgmental, very easy to understand. God is love. I really grasps the concept that we every living thing from plants to humans are interconnected by energy. it's easy to get lost in your spiritual journey listening to these near death experiences really helps you get back on your path.

Breathtaking! Stay with it

I started reading this book after finishing a couple of Raymond Moody's books. Dr Long has his own style of telling the story, very scientific based, I can sense he is a medical doctor. It was a slow start, as Dr Long was telling how he constructed his research. This was important part, as it shows how credible the findings are. It gets better, each chapter tells about specific feature of NDE and at the end he sums up the finding. The best part was encountering God and how he is described by NDErs. This is the most beautiful part. Narrator's voice was very pleasant, soothing, articulate and clear. The book had some parts that were very complex to understand, but narrator made it for me to stay with it. Very calming, pleasant voice. I will absolutely recommend anyone to read, especially anyone going through bereavement and also sceptics and atheists.

Steven hawkings boring brother

Good story but the narrators voice is extremely annoying! At first I thought it might have been speech to text software as it sounded like a computer.
Also if I hear N.D.E.R.F one more time I think I’ll have a breakdown.....
