Quarterly journal publishing papers related to near-death experiences, including research reports; theoretical or conceptual statements; expressions of a scientific, philosophic, religious, or historical perspective on the study of near-death experiences; cross-cultural studies; individual case histories; and personal accounts of experiences or related phenomena.

These books about near-death experiences (NDEs) can really help someone who is looking into the questions of what happens when we die. They give descriptions of the near-death experiences of a great many different people, which helps a lot to make them seem like they must be real, since they happen to so many people.

If you are new to this kind of stuff, at first it can seem like some of these experiences are too far out to be real. If you keep on reading about them, though, your mind is likely to start to concede that it would be extremely difficult for so many accounts like these to just be some kind of hoax, or even a figment of people's imagination. (The question of the authenticity of the experiences is also addressed in the books).

Many people consider that the phenomenon of near-death experiences constitute proof that there is life after death. Some other people are skeptical of this. I'll discuss this issue separately on other pages on this website in the future.

Because of this, in many ways the study of near-death experiences is a genuinely new field of study. And one that was not available to religious and/or spiritual people in the past who (as some people believe) received visions and inspirations from divine sources such as God or the angels. I believe that there is a great amount that we can learn from these people's near-death experiences.

The authors of the original four near-death experience (NDE) books, that I first selected for this page, are all from scientific and/or medical backgrounds (three of them being medical doctors and the fourth a professor emeritus of psychology), and consider this question on the basis of what they have actually seen and heard and experienced with actual patients.

Life After Life: The Investigation of a Phenomenon - Survival of Bodily Death, Dr. Raymond A. Moody, Jr. This was the first major book published about near-death experiences. The original version came out in 1975, and by 2001 when the 25th anniversary edition was published it had already sold over 13 million copies. There are reasons for this large number of sales, and I recommend this as the first book about NDEs to get.

He compares what his patients have told him about with a few other (greatly varied) sources of information, mostly from ancient times. In particular, he says about the Tibetan Book of the Dead that "the correspondence between the early stages of death to which it relates and those which have been recounted to me by those who have come near to death is nothing short of fantastic". He also discusses where life after death is mentioned in the Bible (it is actually not described in detail that much at all, especially in the Old Testament), and says that the brief accounts given do compare well with what his patients have told him.

This is advertised as "The largest NDE study ever conducted reveals proof of life after death", and also as "The first near-death experience research to be based on a large-scale database of testimonies". Dr Long presents and interprets evidence from his database of (at least) 1600 NDE accounts.

Kenneth Ring is one of the leading figures in the study of NDEs. He has written several books. This one is specifically about what ordinary people (who have not had an NDE) can learn from the near-death experiences of others.

This is, among other things, an interpretation of the ancient classic "The Tibetan Book of the Dead" meant for Westerners who do not have the Buddhist cultural and religious background that is (so some people say) necessary to make sense of it. It gives far more detailed descriptions of exactly what happens (according to the book) when we die than anything else that I have seen. It's a long book, not one to read from front to back unless you are very keen. There is a chapter on near-death experiences. The four "bardos" are described in detail, which I think is really interesting.

'I was devouring everything on the near-death experience I could get my hands on, and eager to share what I was discovering with colleagues. It was unbelievable to me how dismissive they were of the evidence. "Drug-induced hallucinations," "last gasp of a dying brain," and "people see what they want to see" were some of the commonly used phrases. One conversation in particular caused me to see more clearly the fundamental irrationality of academics with respect to the evidence against materialism.

Very nonchalantly, without batting an eye, the response was: "Even if I were to have a near-death experience myself, I would conclude that I was hallucinating, rather than believe that my mind can exist independently of my brain."
