Another Near Death Experience book, strongly reminiscent of "Embraced by the Light." Elane Durham chronicles her near death experience in this easy to read memoir. I love, love, love reading about NDE's, so even if the writing is not the greatest (arguably the case in this account), the subject matter is still captivating and motivational. I came away from this book with an increased understanding of the importance of love and service, and it motivated me to think about how I could do better in ...more

I am impressed by this story. Her tale of love from God seems to ring true.

I think there is a certain possibility of accuracy on her view of the Mormons - I cannot deny my own knowledge of "Mormon Magic" as I compare it to her book, and her book does answer the question about why the LDS church doesn't always seem so true --- because some of the members aren't at all interested in spiritual progression. This book helps answer that problem for me.

I am impressed - although wary of the church this

Loved it. Overall made me want to be a better person, inspired me for good. Some parts could be strange/different, but over all I loved the positive messages in the book. I really had to listen to how my heart felt when I read it. Many things bore true to my heart. So I focused on that rather than the gloom and doom, etc. It claims this life is all about developing unconditional love for everyone and serving each other. They seem to go hand in hand. If you want to have unconditional love for som ...more
This is a book recommended by a friend. it is about a woman who "died" and then came back to life an hour or so later. She describes her experiences in great detail and says if she ever finds a church that teaches the same doctrines that she was taught while she was "dead" she would join that church. She has two young missionaries come to her door and she gets her wish. What I got from this book is that we are going to be judged mostly on how we treat others, the service we give others, and lear ...more
This is the story of Elane Durham's near-death experience. While "medically dead" Elane is shown and taught the gospel of Christ. I have read this book multiple times, and every time I finish reading it I feel inspired to be a better person. I also gain a clearer perspective of life, and how important our time here on earth is. The main message of the book is to come unto Christ and strive to become like him through love and service. If you want an easy-read, inspirational, religious book this i ...more
If you are LDS, you will enjoy this true story of a woman who was dead for nearly an hour, went to the other side, and shares how she found the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints 15 years later...and joined. NO spoilers in my review...sorry! You'll have to read it.
It's amazing, though, as it happened to her in 1976....and the book was written in 1998. She describes things ....oh, you'll have to read it!
The forward is written by George Ritchie.
Interesting account of the author's "death vision". It felt authentic, and was a good reminder of what matters most in this life, and of the tremendous unconditional love that Jesus Christ has for each of us. Reading it makes me want to be a better person.

The second and best near death experience I have read.

Elane tells her story simply and sincerely. Her account really resonated with me. It was amazing to know that love is so important in the grand scheme of things.
Like all NDE books, this one's message was that only love and service matter in life, which can be comforting when you are bogged down by other worries. Such a message simplifies things.
Read it, Read it, Read it! I had it dog-eared and marked up and couldn't wait to go through it again! Uplifting and inspiring for everyone!
This is a great story! My only problem with this book was that it seemed to end rather abruptly. I finished filled with questions!
I think this was a pretty interesting book about an LDS member, who had a near-death experience.
this is really good book ! It makes you think ! I couldn't put it down !
