Books that Teach What to Expect in the Afterlife

Under "Fascinating Videos" on the menu, see a new video, Science of the Afterlife, about Alan Ross Hugenot's near-death experience detailed in his book called "The Death Experience: What It Is Like When You Die", and a video documentary by Dr. Keith Parsons called "Afterlife Books Worth Reading."

Below are some of my favorite books about the Afterlife:

Angelic Attendants by Julie Ryan

What Really Happens as We Transition from This Life into the Next

Julie Ryan is an inventor, entrepreneur, medical intuitive and psychic whose learned skills have helped many families understand the glorious side of the dying process. This process involves angels, multitudes of deceased family and friends, the spirits of deceased pets, and countless serendipitous (and miraculous) moments that are all part of a prescribed series of events she calls the Twelve Phases of Transition™.

During what is normally an incredibly heart-wrenching time, families almost always experience profound comfort once Julie describes what’s happening from the perspective of the spirit world—including which spirits and deceased pets from the “other side” have come to assist the dying person, what the person needs and whether they are in pain (when they can’t talk for themselves), and how close they are to actually passing.

The information Julie coveys brings peace at a time that seems filled with anything but peace, and a new way for those left behind to embrace life through what they learn about the experience of death. Reading the remarkable, heartwarming, and even amusing stories in this book will change your life.

Life After Life by Raymond Moody

Raymond Moody is the “father” of the modern NDE (Near Death Experience) movement, and his pioneering work Life After Life transformed the world, revolutionizing the way we think about death and what lies beyond. Originally published in 1975, it is the groundbreaking study of one hundred people who experienced “clinical death” and were revived, and who tell, in their own words, what lies beyond death.

A smash bestseller that has sold more than thirteen million copies around the globe, Life After Life introduced us to concepts—including the bright light, the tunnel, the presence of loved ones waiting on the other side—that have become cultural memes today, and paved the way for modern bestsellers by Eben Alexander, Todd Burpo, Mary Neal, and Betty Eadie that have shaped countless readers notions about the end life and the meaning of death.
