“The chronicle of a scientist and humanitarian on a journey of discovery into the mysteries of death and what comes after . . . [a] lovely book.”— #1 New York Times bestselling author
In the groundbreaking book, Dr. John Lerma shares his valuable research on pre-death hallucinations from the countless terminally ill patients he lovingly cares for as a doctor and director at The Medical Center of Houston, Texas. Sixteen inspirational stories chronicle children and adults confronting their deaths through the comforting visions of divine beings. By presenting these mysterious visions, synchronicities, and angelic conversations his patients encounter, Dr. Lerma shows how knowledge of death can ease the pain and fear as we prepare to enter into the light.
In this book you will learn: the exhilarating and calming elements of pre-death experiences; healing during the dying process; the difference between hallucinations and visions; and self-forgiveness and self-love as the key to a joyous life and a peaceful transition. The mystical experiences described here delve into the creation of the universe, past and future extinctions, dark angels and white angels, selfless suffering and its effect on humanity, free will as the vital ingredient to create on earth and in heaven, and many more incredible revelations. The poignant stories in Into the Light will leave you feeling uplifted in faith, hope, and love.
“Finally, a science-minded physician has addressed the phenomenon of pre-death experiences with compassion, comprehension, and candor . . . you will be uplifted and inspired by this book.”—Gary E. Schwartz, PhD, professor of psychology and medicine at the University of Arizona and author of Super Synchronicity
