Almost the entire book is the account of Richie's experience where he was dead for nine minutes at the age of 20, in , while in an army hospital suffering from double pneumonia. And I can't believe that my teacher was allowed to read such a religious book in a public school! There are countless books written by people who were clinically dead who miraculously came back to life. It was an easy read. Almost unemotional, yet I guess that's his personality, so okay.

What a bummer to have that craving as a spirit Dec 08, Karen rated it it was amazing Shelves: This 'near death experience' book, while fascinating in it's telling, also has a remarkably poignant message about what is truly important in this life. I absolutely believe in a post-mortal life, and I absolutely believe that people have amazing, remarkable, experiences that involve God and those on the other side. I don't know exactly how things will go when I go.
And I've read a couple of these books that lead me to believe that it isn't exactly the same for everyone. But having said that, I This 'near death experience' book, while fascinating in it's telling, also has a remarkably poignant message about what is truly important in this life.
But having said that, I love the feeling that I am left with in reading these types of books. This book in particular leaves one wanting to strengthen relationships, spend time and life motivation on things and people that matter in the long run, and really wanting to improve oneself as a human being. I think it's the kind of book that could be important to pick up every couple of years just as a reminder.
Feb 24, Laurie rated it really liked it. Great book about one man's story of his near death experience. He was a soldier and died for 9 minutes. Amazing story, the one quote at the end of the book was the lesson he learned "The more I learned to see Christ in other people, the less I was crushed by the death and suffering our unit dealt with.
Jun 12, Hannah rated it it was amazing. I LOVE this book. I read this about 10 yrs. I recently happened upon this book in my personal library and decided to read it again, although it is sadly beginnng to fall apart. I plan to buy a couple more copies so my family and friends can read it. I am not quite done with it this second time around, but it has definitely made me re-evaluate why I do what I do in areas I never thought about before. For instance, was I focused on Christ and helping others feel His Love when I was cleaning my home and preparing to host book group at my house yesterday?
Or was I only thinking of impressing my friends with my clean and beautiful home? Was I thinking of Christ when I ate too much dessert? Or was I only thinking about the dessert and how I felt? Those may seem like ridiculously trivial struggles, but there are so many earthly distractions and our own pride that can prevent us from seeing spiritually important things. The author, who sees Christ during a death experience, witnesses hell as a self-imposed state. Those spirits who are so focused on the high from cigarettes, alcohol, sexual perversions, hatred, violence, revenge, etc.
He is there, but they all refuse to look as He has compassion for them and wants to help them.
Ritchie also recognizes some of those feelings within his own heart. He becomes aware that those spirits can leave that area at any time, but their pride and fear of having other spirits hear their horrible thoughts keeps them in that place around others with similar thoughts and feelings. George Ritchie's experience changes his entire outook on life. He has more compassion and a desire to help those around him that he changes his future career to strive to help others feel the Savior's Love for them.
I will read this book again and again. Nov 27, Charlie rated it it was amazing Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This is nothing more than a spoiler, but it is the reason I gave the book five stars.
It is taken from the later end of the book. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in war, peace and meaning in life. Ritchie was with the US Army when he met a man at the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps. The author describes the many horrors he witnessed in WWII as a medic and then suggests that the living shells of human beings he encountered at the liberation of the death camps were the m This is nothing more than a spoiler, but it is the reason I gave the book five stars.
The author describes the many horrors he witnessed in WWII as a medic and then suggests that the living shells of human beings he encountered at the liberation of the death camps were the most horrific sight of them all. There he meets a man who in his view could not have been in the camps for more than a few days as he was radiant and full of health amidst a population of "walking dead". When this prisoner said he had been incarcerated for five years the author balks at the very suggestion.
Then the prisoner tells this story: He was a Jew with a family who witnessed the Nazis shoot them all dead in front of his home.
Then he was told that his ability to speak multiple languages was an asset the Nazis could use and that was why his life was spared. The man claims he then made a decision. He thought to himself that he would choose to love and forgive everyone from that point forward, starting with the Nazi soldiers who just murdered his entire family.
He thought that if he did otherwise he would lose his sanity. His decision to forgive the soldiers followed by his commitment to doing this with every single person he ever met was the secret to his radiant health after 5 years in a Nazi death camp. This book is non-religious spirituality at it's best. It's a love story of sorts but a mystical love not a romantic one.
It's the real deal. Nov 13, Rayni rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Those interested in NDE. It was an easy read. It is not one I would have picked up on my own. I wonder how many copies of The Book of Mormon he was offered in his lifetime. He died of cancer in The bar scene was interesting to me.
Dew out of a morta It was an easy read. Dew out of a mortal's hands, hehe. That's the first thing I grab as I get up each morning. I like this quote: Death is nothing more than a doorway, something you walk through. George Ritchie I was trying to explain this concept in a letter recently; too bad I hadn't read the book then.

Feb 07, Amyjoy rated it it was amazing. I went to Peru to pick up my father in Peru after his helicopter crash. Among his personal effects was this book.
My Dad likely bought it at the airport. He must have known that his time was up. I do not know if he read it or not. It took me many years to want to feel like reading this. It has changed how I think and feel about Heaven. This is a must read if you are curious about what will happen to us after we die. I have read several other books on near death experiences. They are all similar y I went to Peru to pick up my father in Peru after his helicopter crash.
They are all similar yet different in how they describe the same things. This isn't my typical type of book, but I thought it interesting to hear what this man saw in his eight minutes of death. Strangely, it all seemed to make sense. I believe what he says he saw was the afterlife. What I particularly liked about the book, though, was the feelings he felt in the presence of Christ and how he could feel that again in people who had Christ in them.
Makes me want to try to be a better person--and see other people that way as well. Feb 15, Beth Champion rated it it was amazing. LOVED this book. I would highly recommend it and will read it again and again.
I've always been fascinated with stories of near-death experiences partially because my mom had one , but this is the most unusual and moving one I've read. Jul 13, Tim Malone rated it it was amazing. This is one of the few books I will mark as absolutely loved it. Because of the unique things it reveals, it has been one of the most influential books in my life. This was the first NDE book I ever read. I am so glad that Dr. Ritchie got professional help from Elizabeth Sherrill to make it into the wonderful book that it is.
You will be fascinated by the story. I know I was. I also learned so much from it about the spirit world that has been confirmed over and over by others who have also had N This is one of the few books I will mark as absolutely loved it.
I also learned so much from it about the spirit world that has been confirmed over and over by others who have also had NDEs and wrote about them. Thanks you George Ritchie for such a wonderful book.
I wrote a review on one of my blogs many years ago. Here are excerpts: I first read it in after being introduced to it by a friend. It was written and published in Ritchie is a retired psychiatrist who had a remarkable experience when he was a year-old private during WWII in He died while in an army hospital.
What happened during those nine minutes is the subject of the book. I have known people who have died and been resuscitated. None of them have claimed any memories of what happened to them during their near-death experiences. Ritchie's NDE is not unique but it is one of the most profound, complete and telling experiences ever related and documented.
Did George Ritchie really die? I don't know but I loved his book. Now admittedly he had help crafting it. The story is compellingly told and is an easy one-evening read at pages.
I was fascinated from the beginning and could not put it down. I have reread it several times and refer to it often to refresh my memory of some of the sections that contain unique insights into things that he saw on his journey that I have found nowhere else in literature. Some have dismissed the book as fiction, and others as fantasy but I am compelled to believe Dr. Ritchie's story although some of his interpretations of the events that happened to him may be open to question.
I'll just share one point from the book that introduces a theme of future discussion for this blog. On page 59 of the paperback edition Dr.
Ritchie is relating some of the early scenes of his journey while out of his body. He is observing some differences in the beings that he is seeing before him: This luminosity moved as they moved, like a second skin made out of pale, scarcely visible light. A number of the men standing at the bar seemed unable to lift their drinks to their lips. Over and over I watched them clutch at their shot glasses, hands passing through the solid tumblers, through the heavy wooden counter top, through the very arms and bodies of the drinkers around them.
And these men, every one of them, lacked the aureole of light that surrounded the others. Then he relates something very interesting. Two of his buddies stooped down and started dragging him away from the crush [of drinkers at the bar]. But that is not what I was looking at.
I was staring in amazement as the bright cocoon around the unconscious sailor simply opened up. Ritchie is describing?
Do you conclude as I do that it is some sort of protection or shield that is given to all mortals? Perhaps it is some sort of electrical energy that many have claimed to have discovered and documented over the years - the energy fields of the body.
What do you think - does the human body have energy fields and if so, can it be scientifically proven? If you can, James Randi will give you a million dollars. I doubt that anybody will ever be able to prove that the human body has energy fields.
I also doubt that anybody will ever be able to prove that there is a spirit within the human body. Not being able to prove something scientifically may stop others from believing it but I choose to believe. Of course, I'm very careful about what I choose to believe. When we left George Ritchie he was watching in astonishment as the cocoon of light that surrounded one of the mortals he saw in his journey crack and open up as he passed out drunk.
The protective shield peeled away from his head and his shoulders. Continuing with the narrative on page of the book, Return From Tomorrow, we read: He had been hovering like a thirsty shadow at the sailor's side, greedily following every swallow the young man made.
Now he seemed to spring at him like a beast of prey. It all happened even before the two men had dragged their unconscious load from under the feet of those at the bar. One minute I'd distinctly seen two individuals. By the time they propped the sailor against the wall, there was only one. Twice more, as I stared, stupefied, the identical scene was repeated. A man passed out, a crack swiftly opened in the aureole round him, one of the non-solid people vanished as he hurled himself at that opening, almost as if he had scrambled inside the other man.
Was it a protection against Presumably these substance-less creatures had once had solid bodies, as I myself had had. Suppose that when they had been in these bodies they had developed a dependence on alcohol that went beyond the physical. That became mental. Ritchie died on Monday October 29, at his home in Irvington, Virginia , aged 84, following a long battle with cancer.
