Contains a number of interesting accounts of NDEs experienced by children. Many of these include OBEs in which the child accurately describes events that occured whilst they were unconcious or effectively dead.

His research suggests that NDEs only occur where the patient actually 'dies' for some period with no comparable experiences for seriously ill children or children whose treatment includes mind altering medication.

Morse manages to counter the common alternative/ reductionist explanations for NDE's (for example 'the endorphin model', hallucination, anesthetic or drug effects).

This book has become almost a bible for me. It is so beautifully written, without exaggeration or attempt to push the ideas. As a practicing clinician, Dr, Morse became interested in the after death experiences of children he was treating. These revealed much more than he expected, and he gives accounts of what his children discovered while they were apparently dead. As Dr. Morse says, he found it particularly intriguing and convincing because not only were the children innocents, without prior education in the subject, but also many of the accounts of observation of events in the hospital and elsewhere were confirmed.
Read the book. It touches places other books fail to reach.

This book is written by a doctor who, at first, did not believe the stories he heard from the children in his care but he kept an open mind. Eventually he realised that the similarities were too coincidental to be untrue. This book will make sceptics rethink their beliefs. Please read it and see for yourself that there really IS a peaceful paradise awaiting all of us!

A paediatrician has been arrested over claims he disciplined his 11-year-old daughter by waterboarding her.

Melvin Morse, 58, a doctor known for his research into near-death experiences of children, is accused of subjecting the girl to the simulated drowning technique more typically associated with the interrogation of terrorist suspects.

He and his wife Pauline Morse, 40, were arrested at their home in Georgetown, Delaware, on Tuesday on charges of endangering the welfare of a child, reckless endangerment and conspiracy.

The paediatrician, who was held in lieu of $14,500 (£9,261) bail, was accused of waterboarding the girl four times over two years starting in May 2009. Police said she had so much water poured on her face that it would go up her nose.

They said Pauline Morse, who was released after arrest, saw some of the punishment but did not stop it.

Police learned of the alleged waterboarding earlier this week when they spoke with the girl about a separate incident.

The Morse family drove home on 16 July and the 11-year-old refused to get out of the car for an unknown reason. Melvin Morse opened the door and dragged her by the ankles over a gravel driveway to the house, police said.

Later, the child ran to a neighbour's house, and police were called. Morse was charged with assault and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

While the girl was being questioned by authorities on Monday, she told them that her father would discipline her by what he called waterboarding, police said.

After their arrest, both parents were ordered to have no contact with the 11-year-old and her 6-year-old sister. Both girls were placed in care.

Melvin Morse, who heads the Institute for the Scientific Study of Consciousness, had appeared on television on Oprah, Good Morning America and Larry King Live. He is also the author of a book called Closer to the Light.

On his website, he wrote about his research into near-death experiences, particularly those involving children.

This is a fascinating read. Melvin Morse comes across as a serious researcher with an open and enquiring mind. He has not side-stepped the experiences he has encountered but instead has set out to try to understand them. An seemingly unbiased and thought-provoking study. My only quibble would be that, due to the small number of subjects, the book does start to become rather repetitive as you move through the chapters. But certainly an important book and I would highly recommend it to any reader.

Life after death has been proven scientifically by great scientists such as Sir William Crooks and Sir Oliver lodge and many more. Every time that a scientist specially a medical Doctor like Dr Morse is brave enough to go against the materialist and orthodox establishment and tell the truth as it is, makes this world a better place. Fantastic true accounts of children NDEs and one of the best evidence that we ALL survive physical death of our bodies.
