Book Description

15 Nov 2011
By relating one man's amazing tale of triumph over death on multiple occasions, this book brings a fresh perspective to near death experience literature. David Bennett, once a brash young commercial diver whose personal philosophy was "cut your way through life to survive," was caught in a violent storm off the California coast one night where he drowned. While technically "dead," he met beings of light, relived his life, and peeked into his future, resulting in a complete paradigm shift for him. Later, he discovered he had stage IV lung and bone cancer-so advanced that his spine collapsed. Miraculously, he survived once again, and this second close call taught him even more about living, loving, and how to find purpose in his life. Voyage of Purpose brings readers right into the heart of the near-death experience, including the sensations of dying, being surrounded by the light, and meeting the Soul Family. Part memoir and part guide for achieving spiritual growth, this book shows how to integrate the most traumatic of incidents into one's spiritual path in order to live a more meaningful life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fearless 4 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've started and not finished quite a few books that claim to be the gateway to spirituality. I finished this inspiring book in no time at all probably because David Bennett does not make any such grand claims but actually succeeds in achieving that objective. He does this by just telling his story and passing on the wisdom he's acquired along the way.

It's quite a story and the account of his first Near Death Experience is gripping and graphic. Equally vivid is his account of his spiritual awakening and the tools he was able to draw on to overcome the cancer and other medical challenges that subsequently faced him. He passes on the visualisations and exercises in mindfulness that can be used by anyone to begin to put themselves in touch with their innate spiritual qualities. He offers hope and inspiration for anyone with fear in their lives but he also keeps it real and human - this isn't an esoteric exercise in detachment or denial, just a very personal account of what worked for him in the most extreme of circumstances.

As a result, it's a book which bleeds authenticity - a manual on how to move towards a better life by remembering that we have all we need - we just need to learn how to use it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly Inspirational 21 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a remarkable read of a man who survived what most of us would describe as our worst nightmares. It not only caused me to review my own life and the state of our planet as it is, but it gave me a renewed and extremely powerful sense of connection with Spirit.
I have always been fascinated by Near Death Experiences and read many books on the topic but never has a book been this successful at helping me to grasp the actual sense of who I am at the soul level. I was amazed by how easily David's words carried me through his experience as if it were my own; rearranging my being in a way that only my soul can do.
The only way I can describe the feeling I got, was that it was Truth - the Truth of Love - how else could it feel so real and so transformational?
Brilliantly written, honestly expressed and very beautiful through out, this book touched my heart with every turn of its pages.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart David Bennett...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonder of Wonders 23 Oct 2011
By Anemone - Published on
"Wonder of wonder, miracle of miracles, God took an engineer by the hand..." Well with apologies to Fiddler on the Roof, the joy of the tailor Motel Kamzoil infuses David & Cindy Bennett's book, Voyage of Purpose. David Bennett has journeyed into the Light and returned with messages of hope for all of us: There is life after death. The power of eternity forms and informs our earthly existence. The worst of diseases can be healed. Learning to be open hearted and loving is a life long journey of joy.

I knew most of Bennett's story before I read the book. I found it as enthralling as it was the first time I heard it. My favorite part is about the scent of roses from a holy relic, something I would discount if anyone else told me. This book erases the line between possible and impossible. It gives the reader's faith a booster shot. I highly recommend Voyage of Purpose as an antidote to the doom and gloom of current events. I'm giving it as a gift to my entire list of people for Yule so they can understand miracles still happen.

You did an effective job of this and it is so necessary. It puts all in simple terms and does a fine task of addressing any possible
fears of dying. In fact, you have been able to show the absolute beauty that I personally found difficult to articulate in describing my own NDE. Many thanks to you and Cindy for this excellent book. Marie Lake

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not the type, but I loved this book anyway 18 Mar 2012
By N. Whitney - Published on
I'm not the type of person who reads spiritual materials. I'm skeptical by nature, and tend to consider this sort of thing silly. However, something got into me and I really wanted to read VoP. Glad I did, and after reading it, I wonder if it is part of a journey of my own. I like how David describes his experiences so personally, his fears, growth over time, and his impressions of what he saw when he almost died that day. I can't add a lot to the other reviews here, except to say that even folks who don't like such things might still like this book if you go into it with an open mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Journey 28 Oct 2011
By Sandi Kimmel - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read the first half of Voyage of Purpose on an overseas flight...and finished it on the way home. In between, I was moved, uplifted and supported by your powerful book! Your stories of the love and support we have available to us confirmed my deepest knowing, and your excellent suggestions for incorporating them into my life have already produced shifts in my experiences.

May your teachings spread far and wide. They go straight to the heart in a most profound way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful Gem 19 Oct 2011
By Bonnie C. - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Voyage of Purpose is a powerful book, and truly a treasure. I savored each and every word of this gem of a book. It took me through so many emotions, tears and smiles, what an amazing journey! This will be like a door opening for many, especially experiencers, to come "out of the closet" and seek others for discussion and support on their own spiritual journeys. Dave and Cindy will probably never know how many people will be positively affected by their words. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! I'm sure many honest, heartfelt conversations will be taking place as book clubs discover this thought provoking work. Thank you, Dave and Cindy, and many blessings.
