Abstract

Christian belief in a future life was historically based on theistic religious experience. Today Near-death Experiences (NDEs) are more often cited. Exceptional reports of NDEs go back to the dawn of history but modern medicine has democratised them. Accounts from St Paul, St John of the Cross, and from Tibetan and Japanese Buddhism are described and compared with a large survey of contemporary experiences. The author pleads the desirability of establishing a prospective research project to determine the objectivity of some of the experiences claimed.
