Embraced by the Light
By Betty J. Eadie that

"What happens after death?" "Why are we here?"

These are some of the most common questions people ask. There are as many differing theories as there are beliefs and religions. Yet, we still want to know.

In Embraced by the Light, Betty J. Eadie shares her near-death experience from the viewpoint of a Christian. She speaks of an "enormous energy" that encompassed her. She describes what it was like to enter "the tunnel" and who was there to greet her when she "crossed over." She tells about the knowledge she gained, and why she believes we are here.

Through her witness, Eadie is able to come to terms with the many experiences she encounters after her near-death event. She states, "We are here for an earthly experience. All we can do is be family. All we can do is love." This book was given to me by the family member of a patient at Hospice of the Western Reserve. When her parents died, she felt comforted by the thoughts Eadie shared about our purpose in life and after. The book is easy to read and offers some very interesting concepts.
