Becky Edwards...I ended up getting a different Pontius book than you listed (I remembered you said it was a good one about a Near Death Experience)..but it's so amazingly good. It's called Visions of Glory.

I stopped reading so I could read it with my husband but I don't know if I can wait for him to catch up and read it that slowly (out loud). lol.

I want my son preparing for his mission to read it because it's so inspiring, although I understand it goes into last days materials which can be scary.

I don't know why Near Death Experiences affect me so, but they are definitely virtuous and praiseworthy and inspire me to live better! I also read Heaven is Beyond Your Wildest Expectations: Ten True Stories of Experiencing Heaven which is an easier read. 10 shorter experiences (often excerpted from the whole experience). It changed me for the better. I started to understand more how to live in accordance with the relationship of Jesus to Heavenly Father. And the Book of Revelation made so much more sense, too. (Warning..the first chapter feels kind of protestant and was my least favorite for that reason)

Since I can't tag you I hope you can find this post. :)

Heather, thank you for your comment! I also liked Visions of Glory. I just started a new NDE book called A Greater Tomorrow by Julie Rowe. Several months ago I listened to the audio book Heaven is for Real, which is about a little boy visiting the spirit world. His dad is a ?Protestant preacher, but his experience lined up so much with LDS doctrine. I LOVE The Message by Lance Richardson, who is a wonderful LDS man who has since passed away. Take care!
