Eternity In Their Hearts, Love In Their Souls, And Books In Their Minds

I have to confess, I have not given much thought to near-death experiences, or the light emanating from the tunnel at the end, or souls hovering over bodies as they lay dying.

But the proliferation of Christian and other books about preschoolers, neurosurgeons, and pastors who’ve stepped into the foyer of Heaven?¬† Those, I confess, I’ve treated with condescending doubt at best and eye-rolling cynicism at worst.

But this is the best article I’ve ever read on the afterlife, the phenomenon of near-death experiences, and the place of theology in understanding the claims some have made regarding drop-in visits to heaven and warm embraces from the Holy One.

Highly recommended¬† — you might even say it’s a bit of pastoral heaven from the pages of Christianity Today:
