Echoes from Eternity extends the research work commenced with the best-selling book Glimpses of Eternity into new areas. More than twenty new firsthand accounts of persons who dies, entered the Spirit World, and returned are reported. Scientists call such events near-death experiences (NDEs). Sixty-eight case studies are dicumented and analyzed for unusual patterns and parallels with LDS scriptures. the author's continuing research confirms previous findings and also reveals new and unexpected insights. Several of those who experienced NDEs tell of having seen themselves in a pre-mortal environment making choices about their future life on earth. Some children't experiences are recorded, and their innocence and candor sheds additional light on the subject of death and the hereafter. Some of the interviewed individuals went through extensive NDEs, and their vivid recollections are described in detail. the first part of the book documents recorded interviews of the persons who traveled beyond the veil of this life and returned. Their accounts are recorded in full, without editorial comment. In the second part of the book, those experiences are analyzed by the author, based on his extensive previous research in this area and in the context of LDS scriptures and teachings. These two approaches combine to make a powerful witness that life after death is not to be feared. One lady, whose account is typical of many of the responses, said, I don't think people should be afraid of dying. I've lost all fear of death since my experience. This book makes a major contribution to the field of near-death research, and it answers many questions about this life and the life to come. Questions about pre-mortal choices, the role of pain in mortal experience, the effect improper choices made in this life have on one's post-mortal existence, the healing power of the Savior's love, and the continuation of family life in the hereafter are thoughtfully examined. What emerges with clarity is a strong message of love, hope, and eternal growth.
