Description
On September 17, 1975, Dannion Brinkley was talking on the phone during a thunderstorm. A bolt of lightning hit the phone line, sending thousands of volts of electricity into his head and down his body, throwing him several feet into the air. His heart stopped, and he died. When Brinkley revived in the morgue after twenty-eight minutes, he had an incredible story to tell. Saved by the Light is the profoundly moving personal account of his near-death experiences - the.
second NDE occurring fourteen years later - and the resulting spiritual transformation that has completely altered his life. After the lightning strike, Brinkley watched from above as loved ones and medics tried to start his heart. When doctors pronounced him dead he was already traveling through a dark tunnel toward a spirit being, who led him into a crystal city awash in light and tranquillity. Brought before thirteen angelic instructors in what he describes as "a.
cathedral of knowledge," Brinkley was told of events that would shake the world before the year 2000 - including the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, the Persian Gulf War, and America's current economic crisis. Of the 117 revelations that he recalls, 95 have already come to pass. During his long, painful convalescence, Brinkley not only revisited the spiritual advisers in his dreams but also discovered that he had developed the ability to read minds. Neither the medical.
establishment nor religious institutions truly believed his story or could offer help. Finally Brinkley connected with others who had had near-death experiences through Dr. Raymond Moody, author of Life After Life and Reunions and a foremost researcher in the field of NDEs. Moody was astounded by the complexity and detail of Brinkley's story. Brinkley's second NDE occurred in 1989, when his damaged heart gave out during an attack of pneumonia. Again he traveled to the.
crystal city, where he was reunited with his angelic instructors, and learned he was to use his new psychic and spiritual gifts to aid the dying and the desperate. He has since devoted his life to working with the sick and the elderly and to bringing the revelations he received to people around the world. Now he has written his story to inspire people everywhere. Filled with drama, excitement, and a boundless enthusiasm for life and its mysteries, Saved by the Light is a.
classic in its field.
