Glimpsing Heaven: The Stories and Science of Life After Death by Judy Bachrach


What happens when we die? A question I ask myself often, always curious and a topic I enjoy exploring through various writings.

I was completely captivated by this book, a subject matter I continually question and read extensively. Bachrach demonstrates her keen journalistic skills with various interviews from people sharing their near death experiences. Varying backgrounds, occupations adding interest – actress, doctors, neuroscientists.

Each chapter reveals information both unfamiliar and familiar with near death experiences. One point mentioned time and time by interviewees – death is not to be feared. The people interviewed openly share their stories and their background pre/post experience. There were similarities as well as differences as to what exactly each person faced. Both stories and participants are fascinating as well as gripping.

If you’re interested in probing as to what happens when you die, give this book a read, you’ll have difficulty putting it down, finding yourself riveted and well educated on a interesting subject matter surely to have crossed your mind on occasion.
