Product description

About the Author

John Edwards's strength and persistence are from a near-death experience at age 17. Head injuries were responsible for his traumatic brain injury (TBI.) The TBI brought about the near-death experience (NDE.)

John returned with heightened values:

  • to know and please God better
  • the preservation of life
  • to learn all he can

John got involved in the biomedical equipment industry at a very exciting time. He got involved with the more complicated areas—heart catherization, angiography, and cross-axial tomography (CAT) labs.

After learning their skills were needed in overseas Christian missionary work, John and Sharon began their mid-life crises. They planned to get involved in Bible translation, particularly, the publishing of Bibles. First, it seemed only right that John return to university to study computers. They then joined Wycliffe Bible Translators and the Institute of Linguistics.

Their proficiency with computers lead into graphic arts, page design, and automated processes, their specialty.

While in that work, John was appointed a core member of a couple of standards development efforts to better automate Scripture publishing. They were OSIS (The Bible Forum) and USFM (United Bible Society).

For twenty years the couple tirelessly traveled to the Philippines, Mexico, Australia, Guatemala, Britain, Colombia, Papua New Guinea, and Russia, returning the Russian Scripture publishing traditions to the Russian people.

John's health was consumed through the suitcase lifting portions of so much travel, and from the duration of numerous medical needs because of the TBI. So, he is now medically retired.

Finally John had the time to author, explain, and publish this book which reconciles Scripture and his NDE. The title is Encouraged by the Light.

An extra pleasantry: the qualities of their publishing past is reflected in the quality of this work.

Between the covers is a balance of Christian subjective and objective interpretations of his NDE, while remaining true to the mainstream interpretations of Christian Scriptures. While doing so, he also, relates and contributes to two topics; the Mind-Body Problem of philosophy and the Freewill Discussions of theology. A healthy contribution.

John's life has been an exciting life—motivated, energized, and encouraged by a near-death experience that involved seeing the Light.
