Dramatic and scholarly, this is the first book to bridge the gap between science and spirituality in the study of death. Placing the latest research from psychology, sociology, and neuroscience within the framework of current philosophy and theology, Fox reveals what the hard evidence can tell us about God, the afterlife, and the meaning of human existence.
From the Publisher:

Resuscitated in the OR, struck by lightning, rescued at sea - people snatched from the jaws of death from around the world tell remarkably similar stories. Many feel outside their bodies, sense a powerful "being of light," journey to a heavenly (or hellish) realm, undergo life review, and then are pulled almost cruelly back to earth. Dramatic and scholarly, Religion, Spirituality and the Near Death Experience is the first book to bridge the gap between science and spirituality in the study of death. Placing the latest research from psychology, sociology, and neuroscience within the framework of current philosophy and theology, Fox reveals what the hard evidence can tell us about God, the afterlife, and the meaning of human existence. Drawing on nearly 100 never-before-published near-death accounts, Fox rigorously reviews the claim that a "common core" of experience exists across cultures, assessing what this means for varying religious traditions. He also scrupulously examines the fantastic claims|made by some returnees, such as the congenitally blind who at the brink of death were able to see. Neither a religious argument touting near-death experiences as proof of God nor a scientific treatise that tries to explain them away, Religion, Spirituality and the Near Death Experience thoughtfully integrates theological theory with scientific evidence in a fascinating work that will captivate skeptics and believers alike.

This dramatic and sustained response to decades of research into near-death experiences (NDEs) is the first book to credibly bridge the gap between the competing factions of science and spirituality. Neither a religious argument touting NDEs as hard evidence for God, nor a scientific rebuke to religious interpretations, it balances investigation of these much-reported yet baffling phenomena, and brings fresh urgency to the study of our hopes for a life beyond.
