Book Description

Sept. 1 1994
On the night of November 19, 1973, following surgery, thirty-one-year-old wife and mother Betty J. Eadie died.... This is her extraordinary story of the events that followed, her astonishing proof of life after physical death. She saw more, perhaps than any other person has seen before and shares her almost photographic recollections of the remarkable details. Compelling, inspiring, and infinitely reassuring, her vivid account gives us a glimpse of the peace and unconditional love that awaits us all. More important, Betty's journey offers a simple message that can transform our lives today, showing us our purpose and guiding us to live the way we were meant to -- joyously, abundantly, and with love.

Product Description

From Amazon

Embraced by the Light is an inspirational map of the afterlife framed in the moment of Eadie's death, and presents a possible answer to the big question, "Why are we here?" An easy read, its subtitle could have been "The Average Person's Guide to Near-Death Experiences." Although heavily filtered through Eadie's Christian worldview, her vision of the afterlife does not include a wrathful deity, but a figure of love and compassion. Some readers may find Eadie's repeated Christian references bothersome, and Embraced by the Light will undoubtedly raise a lot of questions along the lines of "What about reincarnation?" and "What happens to people who are not Christians?" --Brian Patterson

From Library Journal

Eadie died at age 31 after surgery. During the time she was clinically dead, she alleges to have traveled through the spirit realm learning about the laws of nature and the history of the universe. The angels and other spiritual beings explained to her the reasons why different individuals chose to be on the earth and to accomplish certain acts. Her vision includes insights into the question, "Why are we here?" Our souls chose to come to the earth at certain times to be united with families that we had been soul mates with earlier in the spiritual realm, she explains. Perhaps her most intriguing insight regards the fall of humankind. "Eve did not sin because she was tempted but because she so desperately wanted to become the mother of mankind," she states. Much of her story is similar to other near-death experiences. However, she obviously includes many of her personal views about religious philosophy. Her use of mythical elements detracts from the credibility of her story. A better source on this topic is the works of Raymond A. Moody (e.g., Near Death Experiences , Sounds True Recordings, 1991) . -- Ravonne A. Green, Emmanuel Coll. Lib., Franklin Springs, Ga.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Empiricist is Not Always Correct! ^O^ Aug. 28 2001
Rationalists and empiricists--those people who live and believe only according to what is within the narrow tunnel of their physical senses--are challenged by "Embraced By The Light" by Betty J. Eadie. A remarkable story of perhaps the most vivid and credible near-death account yet published that did not have corporate idea undertones. Written in 1992 among a surge in angel-related topics, Ms. Eadie details her battle with cancer that doctors say took her life for twenty minutes. During that twenty minutes, the reader is drawn into a heavenly lore that seems too good to be true--it seemed only like a dream--but somehow pangs the reader with subtle hints of reality. To an unbeliever, naturally the book comes off as fiction or something that couldn't be taken seriously. So the questions we must then ask are, "Does heaven really exist" and, more importantly, did the author really visit heaven and return to give us her version of it? This is left up to the reader to decide. It doesn't really matter what the reader believes about "Embraced by the Light." Whether or not the reader is a Christian, Hindu, Muslim or Jew, he or she will find the story provocative and inspiring, as Eadie gives an account of various places of heavenly interest so detailed that it would seem impossible to be a mere concoction of the imagination: Heaven, where teachers are everywhere, councils endlessly watch over us as we go about our "missions" on earth, where each of us has a duty to fulfill such a mission--whether or not it is acknowledged. When our author mentions that she had died, gone to heaven and was talking with Jesus, she said there was "no way she would ever return" to earth, "to put on that old suit"--for her to go back into her body.

5.0 out of 5 stars We don't die! Jan. 3 2004
By DeAnna
I was handed Betty's book when my 18 year old daughter was diagnosed 'brain dead' after a car accident. I have given the book out to others who have experienced a loss in their life and will continue passing out Betty's book of hope after death!
The book explained a little about what happened to me when I was clinically dead from an injury in an accident, 1980. Although I didn't see anyone, I remember being in a beautiful green pasture with flowers and the feeling of total love, peace and harmony. It was a place I never wanted to leave!
My mother had a NDE when my little sister died. She remembers being in a beautiful place floating with an angel or guide as Betty describes. She then asked about her baby and was able to see her baby flying around very peaceful and happy. My mother said "she doesn't know me" and was told "she will when she grows up." Thus, I have always felt babies grow in heaven.
My daughter's best friend was struck by a truck and in a coma for months. When she awoke from her brain injury, she was recovering in a rehab center for months. The first words she spoke was seeing her grandparents - who had died several years before. Four months after her accident, she was allowed to go home for a few hours to celebrate Thanksgiving dinner. She saw a picture of Jesus on the dining room wall, not able to talk well or use her arms to function, she pointed to the picture and said "uh, uh, no, he doesn't look like that -- Jesus doesn't look like that." These were the only words she spoke during her brief visit.
I can go on and on about other people who have had NDE and I have no doubt we all of have destiny beyond this world! As for my daughter, she is in a much better place. I know because I was there once and look forward to returning to Heaven when my time is up!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite books of all-time June 30 1999
By A Customer
When I first read Embraced by the Light, I had taken it out of the library. I had not experienced having anyone close to me die, nor had I ever had such an experience as a near-death experience. What led me to the library was a broken heart, and the separation from a person I thought was my soul mate. Prior to that, I had been slowly rebuilding my life after being sick with a debilitating disease that forced me to put my life on hold. As a result I was looking for answers. That's when I found the comfort of Embraced by the Light.
After asking the question, time and again, of why I'm here, what's the use, and is there anything better after this, Betty J. Eadie showed me a different prespective.
I had started reading and studying about near-death expereinces, but Embraced by the Light was the most descriptive account I had ever read. I read that book three times before I had to return it to the library. After that, I couldn't be without it, and bought my own copy. Since then, I've read it three or four more times, and have also given a copy to a dear friend, who is sick like I was.
Embraced by the Light is a vivid and descriptive account of dying, that is told in a gentle, yet simple way. Betty J. Eadie talks of her experience with such frankness and simplicity, yet with such awe and excitement, and one finds it hard to not open the heart and mind to her story and the message she tries to deliver in it.
If you have lost someone close to you, or have dealt with the stumbling blocks of life so much so that you're asking the same questions I did, get this book. It may be the most comforting thing you can do for youself.
