False Truths Dec 10, 2006
I don't know if Eby was just attempting to sell books, or if something he experienced lead him to publish false visions.
Either way he claimed that Jesus told him that Jesus would be coming back while Eby was still alive.
Eby has since died, and as far as I know, Jesus has yet to appear again.
So something is wrong here. I would not spend money on this book with hopes to find truth in it. Most likely they are either the dreams of someone who could not tell the difference between reality and fantasy, or the writing of someone who used to religion to make a buck.
Either way not something to waste time on.
Questionable statements Sep 27, 2006
Overall I thought this book was credible and inspiring, and certainly it is solidly based on scripture. But! At least twice Eby claims Jesus told him he would return while Eby was still here with us, and clearly that didn't happen. I quote from Page 90: "You will not complete your commission for Me until I return for you and My Body of Believers. I am coming that soon." I quote from Page 88: "I will return for you and My Body of Believers before you can complete your commission. I am returning soon!" Jesus obviously couldn't return for Eby unless Eby was still here. Jesus would not make a false statement, so I conclude that either Eby misheard or his imagination ran away with him.
We Experience What We Expect to Experience Dec 16, 2002
It is interesting to me that every person who has a near death experience tends to have an experience that validates his own belief system. If the belief system happens to be Christianity, there will invariably be an experience of meeting Christ, experiencing heaven, hell, etc. & a validation of belief in the Bible. I know of two people who had the same near-death experience--they come from Eastern and New Age belief systems, and they experienced no such thing as what the author reports. They reported experiences of "Bardo"--self-judgement where they reviewed their lives from the perspectives of all people whose lives they touched, etc., and it was purely for evaluation & learning. There was no hell or judgment associated with it. There are many world religions that believe there is no "Absolute Truth", and we actually "Manifest" whatever "reality" we believe--in this life and the next, which might account for so many people who experience exactly what they anticipate experiencing after death.
An essential message for our day. Sep 7, 2002
"Let no man deceive you..." is a Biblical text which I have no doubt is very familiar with those amongst you who have studied the New Testament and in particular the prophecies relating to end times events.
I try to adopt this Biblical principle in all my studies of such matters, whether they relate to prophecy, the spiritual realm, or varying Scriptural viewpoints. I think one must weigh up each and every encounter with what the Bible has to say. This is the only way that anyone can arrive at a truthful and honest deduction of the question/subject in hand.
The subject of 'near death' or similar experiences which involve an insight in the 'afterlife', is a very controversial subject and is privy to many differing religious and medical opinions.
Having read previous reviews before buying this book, I approached reading the book with the above factors and caution in mind.
It wasn't long before I came to the opinion that the author had a Biblically based and true love for Jesus Christ and a sound understanding of doctrine and the Bible as a whole.
His experiences and their interpretation cannot be denied. I have no reason to doubt the author's credibility in any way form or fashion. This is an incredible book !
The author's own violent accident and medically documented death are factual. His detailed experiences of meeting with Jesus and visiting Paradise and Hell are in keeping with the accounts already present in the Bible. One can only read in awe, respect and a great deal of soul-searching.
These accounts must be taken at face value and the warnings described must not be ignored. This is something and Someone who we will all have to face one day. To say that we haven't been warned or advised is a fallacy.
I can only recommend this book with a meagre FIVE STAR rating, as ten stars is regretfully not provided for here ! This is the Christian Gospel in a nutshell. It answers so many questions that multitudes are afraid to ask and a subject that most would prefer to avoid. Yet it is the very matter which we all have to encounter at some stage.
An incredible book, so easy to read and understand and which can be read in a day or two at the most. If you can lay your hands on this book, then please do so. You will not regret it.
HIS TRUTH CONFIRMED Dec 19, 2001
I AM READING THIS BOOK FOR THE 4TH TIME! I FEEL EMPTY WHEN I DON'T READ SOME PASSAGES FROM IT WEEKLY. I'VE HEARD AND READ MANY AFTER DEATH STORIES. I FEEL DR. EBY'S IS THE MOST CREDIBLE BECAUSE MOST DOCTORS THINK THEY ARE GOD. HE WAS HUMBLED BY HIS EXPERIENCE AND REMAINS SO TODAY. I WAS EVEN COMPELLED TO WRITE HIM BECAUSE HIS MESSAGE FROM GOD CHANGED MY LIFE. IT'S STRANGE THAT MOST OF THE PEOPLE I SHARED THIS BOOK WITH, DO NOT SEEM TO BE AS AFFECTED BY IT AS I AM! THE HOLY SPIRIT LET ME KNOW SOME BELIEVERS ARE MORE MATURE IN THE LORD THAN OTHERS!
