Opening heaven's door : investigating stories of life, death, and what comes after

Image of item
Book
Science may be unable to “prove” that there is life (or something else) after death, but countless people continue to experience these unexplained coincidences when a loved one dies, while others experience such visions while they are dying themselves. Prompted by her family’s surprising, profound experiences around the deaths of her father and her sister, the hyper-rational Pearson sets out on an open-minded inquiry and discovers that roughly half of bereaved persons—as well as nurses, hospice workers, soldiers, and others who constantly observe the dying—have had uncanny, transcendent experiences. These intimations of enduring bonds can radically help people process their grief and their fear. Opening Heaven’s Door recounts deeply affecting stories of messages from the dying and the dead in a fascinating work of investigative journalism, pointing to new scientific explanations that give these luminous moments the importance felt by those who experience them.
