Publisher's Summary

Not since Betty Eadie's Embraced by the Light has a personal account of a near-death Experience (NDE) been so utterly different from most others - or nearly as compelling. 

In the 30 years since Raymond Moody's Life After Life appeared, a familiar pattern of NDEs has emerged: suddenly floating over one's own body, usually in a hospital setting, then a sudden hurtling through a tunnel of light toward a presence of love. Not so in Howard Storm's case. 

Storm, an avowed atheist, was awaiting emergency surgery when he realized that he was at death's door. Storm found himself out of his own body, looking down on the hospital room scene below. Next, rather than going "toward the light", he found himself being torturously dragged to excruciating realms of darkness and death, where he was physically assaulted by monstrous beings of evil. His description of his pure terror and torture is unnerving in its utter originality and convincing detail. 

Finally, drawn away from death and transported to the realm of heaven, Storm met angelic beings as well as the God of Creation. In this fascinating account, Storm tells of his "life review", his conversation with God, even answers to age-old questions such as why the Holocaust was allowed to take place. Storm was sent back to his body with a new knowledge of the purpose of life here on earth. This book is his message of hope.

Fascinating story, but...

I really did enjoy this title, however, at one point it felt as if the telling of the actual event was deviated to some type of personal political statement. That may very well just be my interpretation, but it seemed very odd to me that the narration went from what was seen and experienced in his NDE to him saying that angels told him that the United States specifically needs to be more climate sensitive, anti-war, provide all the nations of the world with all their needs, fix their problems, and if we don't, we'll suffer God's wrath. That seems quite strange to me, and it felt very 'off' compared to all the other NDE stories I've heard. It didn't lessen the rest of the book, but that part really did stick out as strange, to the point where I honestly had to check to make sure I hadn't accidentally hit a button and switched to a political commentary video or something, that's how different and off it felt to me.

fresh perspective on Christian faithwalk

Fresh perspective on Christian faithwalk while remaining relatively orthodox. those folks steeped in thier own brand of religious culture such as fundamentalists and very conservative Evangelicals, as well as "anything goes" types of liberal Christians will most likely become so offended by a few topics discussed that they will not let themselves be blessed by this testimony. but if you hold a "generous orthodoxy" view, and if you have come to a place in your faithwalk to realize God transcends all of our manmade religens because He is incomprehensible (although God generously is present and makes Himself available to us within all religens that seek the Truth and the Way and the Life; drawing us ever closer to Him in Christ Jesus), then you will very much appreciate this book and Howard Storm's perspective.

Good listen!!!

What an awesome story. I saw the author talking on YouTube, and was compelled to get this book. When he talked about his story, I was so moved by his sincerety. If you have any interest in GOD, youll be glad for this purchase. Thank you to the author for sharing his story.

Excellent. This author is very genuine.

This book seems to answer the fundamental problem of how Jesus is inclusive and the savior of all even those who don’t know his name. The explanation of heaven hell and life on earth are the most coherent I have heard.

Unconditional love is the key message here.

God is love. Love is God. Unconditional love for all is what I got from this book. I’ve read several ones about NDE as they fascinate me. There’s no doubt of our spiritual journey to get closer to our Father / Source.

Very Interesting

I find this story to be quite interesting. While his Christian theology is mostly sound, there are several parts that don't comport with scripture. Specifically, his descriptions of Heaven, hell, and the future. There is also scant, if any, evidence that would indicate man can ever attain the ability to manipulate matter with his mind. His beliefs are a mix of Christian, New Age Spiritualism, and Unitarian. While I think he believes his experience was real, it must be taken with a grain or two of salt.
