"I have never interviewed anyone who had a near-death experience who told me that they came back to make more money or to spend more time at their jobs away from their families... Instead, they become convinced that they need to be more loving and kind. They react to their experience by living life to its fullest. They believe their lives have a purpose, even if that purpose is obscure to them. Invariably it involves concepts such as love of family or service to others. They seem to know that the love they create while living will be reflected and radiated back to them when they die."

Melvin Morse, M.D. From His New Book, "Parting Visions"

By David Sunfellow

All right, we're all familiar with near-death experiences. We've heard how people leave their bodies, pass through long, dark tunnels, encounter dead loved ones and radiant beings of light, endure panoramic, sometimes painful, reviews of their life, and are so overwhelmed with the love of God that they don't want to return to earth. We've also heard that these experiences permanently change the lives of those who have them and, what's more, that this growing phenomenon might be contributing to a global awakening of sorts. There can't be anything else to say, can there? Hasn't this topic been examined from every possible angle?

Not quite.

PARTING VISIONS, a new book by best-selling author Melvin Morse, M.D., takes a penetrating look at the experience of death from the standpoint of everyone involved, not just the person who is dying. The book examines near-death experiences, after-death visitations, premonitions of death and a host of other issues surrounding the experience of dying.

Morse is the author of two other best-selling books on the near-death experience: TRANSFORMED BY THE LIGHT (a book that examines the powerful effect of near-death experiences on people's lives), and CLOSER TO THE LIGHT (a book that examines the near-death experiences of children). What follows are a few of the conclusions found in PARTING VISIONS. Many of these conclusions are based on Morse's own clinical research:

In searching to see if some kind of precognitive dreams and visions were more dependable than others in predicting death and other events, Morse discovered that there were, indeed, a series of elements that reliable visions had in common. According to Morse, dreams and/or visions that have at least two of the following elements are especially likely to be followed by real events:

And, finally, PARTING VISIONS contains an exhaustive list of over 200 cutting-edge books, scientific papers, research articles and other resources dealing with the topics mentioned above.
