Book Description

3 Feb 2011

In September 1975 Dannion Brinkley was talking on the telephone during a thunderstorm when he was struck by lightning and 'died'. He was clinically dead for more than 20 minutes. But between leaving his body and returning to it, he had an extraordinary experience. He visited a spiritual realm and was brought before 13 angelic instructors in what he describes as 'a cathedral of knowledge'. There, he was told of event that would shake the world before the year 2000. Of the 117 revelations that he recalls, 95 have already come to pass.

In SAVED BY THE LIGHT Dannion Brinkley now uses the psychic and spiritual gifts he received to help the dying and the desperate. He has chosen to tell his story to inspire others and share his amazing insights into life, death and the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book shows how to embrace the Home comming. 14 April 2001
I read this book a few years ago after seeing the film on t.v. It has helped to validate what I had already felt and lead me to seek more answers. This book was one of the pioneering books that have lead me to a more spirtual path of life. It is much more than just a near-death-experience. It yet again demonstrates that the messages intended for human race are no longer sent to just holly men but also through anyone who is willing to accept and more importantly to share these messages with others. The truth of Mr Brinkley's words can be felt if the reader has an open mind. This book can also help for grieving people as it helps them to understand that their departed loved ones are safe and protected by the highest form of Love. Well now, that can't be bad! My deepest thanks to the auther and if any one knows of Dannion Brinkley's web site or any updated information on his creations, then please be kind enough to let me know. Thanks and happy reading.

This is an amazing book in which I was curious to read after seeing his interviews on the internet. I was amazed to hear of his account of dying. This man got struck by lightening three times and died receiving a death certificate each time. He had a near death experience where he was transported to the after life world in which he was introduced to beings of light who told him great truths about himself and the possible future of humanity. It sounds a bit out there for the every day man on the street, not many can conceive of such an account but this is a true story, whether the events were imagined or not is besides the point, they changed his life from being a miserable, angry and unhappy man to being a positive and poptimistic spiritual man. Anyone who is interested in personal transformation and life after death will love this book, it is an absolute must read for anybody interested in the subject and for anyone with an open mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars How strong is your will to believe? 10 April 2011
Years ago, when I was a hard-line sceptic and materialist, I read a couple of books about near-death experiences, including Raymond Moody's classic "Life after life". I didn't believe them, of course. Still, I was intrigued. The out-of-body experience reported by many patients close to death, in which the subject "sees" himself from the outside, struck me as difficult to explain. Could this be the smoking gun evidence against the materialist worldview...?

Then, I read Dannion Brinkley's "Saved by the Light" and was repelled. The book cured me from any ideas about dabbling with non-materialist worldviews. Indeed, it had the same effect as a thunderbolt! It would be an exaggeration to claim that Dannion Brinkley scared me from taking the spiritual worldview seriously, but it would not be far from the truth. It's all your fault, Dannion! :-O

I recently re-read the book. "Saved by the Light" is extreme, no doubt about it. The book really challenges the reader's credulity. However, it no longer repelled me as much as it did about 12 years ago, when I read it the first time. These days, my initial reaction to the book amuses me. But do I believe in it? Frankly, I have no idea what to believe. Raymond Moody, who actually hired Dannion Brinkley as his assistant, don't know what on earth to make of him either. He has my sympathy!

The problem with this book is not Brinkley's supposed lie about his time in Vietnam. The problem, of course, are the extravagant claims about paranormal phenomena. Brinkley claims that he can read other people's minds. He also claims to have met spirits or angels during his first near-death experience who gave him detailed prophecies about the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars He Turned His Life Around, and Made it Count 5 Jan 2006
In 1975, Dannion Brinkley died after being struck by lightning through the telephone. The telephone melted in his hand, and the nails in his shoes became welded to the nails on the floor. Dannion died immediately, and neither ambulance workers, nor hospital personnel, were able to revive him. Twenty-eight minutes later, we woke up in the morgue with a sheet over his face, where he was soon discovered alive by a morgue technician.
One-third of the book is the story of what Dannion saw on the other side. He was forced to undergo a "life review," and it was not pleasant. He had been a bully, and become a soldier. He was forced to relive every incident, with the pain he had caused others, even to animals.
Another third of the book is the story of the positive changes Dannion made in his life in the succeeding 14 years. He then had heart failure and again dies (for the second time) on the operating table. He is again taken for a life review. He is forced to relive again the first part of his life, which is just as painful as it was the first time. Then, when he relives the second part of his life, he is uplifted by the joy he feels. Reliving it in the life review is even better than the events had been in real life. However, the being of light lastly tells him that his work making the "energy centers" on earth is not yet finished, and that he must go back to finish his work. He wakes up in the recovery room.
This is a fantastic book, which can really make a difference in the lives of many people. It shows clearly (as do many other books recounting near-death experiences) that our each and every thought and action are weighed by our intentions. We are held responsible for our each and every action toward others. This book shows that ANY ONE OF US really can change our lives for the better, no matter HOW any of us were before. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in near-death experiences, or anyone who cares about living a good life.
