Robert Wise explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches with a Ph.D., Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.


A few years ago, I wrote Crossing the Threshold of Eternity (Regal Books), a collection of near-death experiences of people I had known or investigated. The book is still out and you’d find it fascinating.

The November/December issue of The Saturday Evening Post ran similar stories about such experiences. Written by Bruce Greyson, M.D. and Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Neu behavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, he parallels my findings.

Here’s an example.

In the Vietnam jungle, Steve Price’s bulletproof vest was pieced by shrapnel and mortar fragments pierced his lung. The 24-year-old Marine was rushed to a hospital. During the operation ‘something’ happened. Here’s his account.

“Suddenly, I realized I was up on the ceiling, looking down at my body. A brilliant white light embraced and encompassed me. It took me in. I felt such warmth and peace and was bathed in the most peaceful joyous feeling imaginable. I found myself in a place like the Garden of Eden. I didn’t say the word God for a long time, but now I can say that the light was God. It was like the most loving mother embracing her infant, only a million times more than that.  On the other side a steam bubbling through the garden was my long-dead grandfather. I went to move toward him, but it was over.”

The effect on Steve Price left him with an almost inability to shoot his gun because he didn’t want to kill people. He became so sensitive that when others were hurt, Steve could feel their pain. His entire perspective on life was changed.

There are differences, but Steve Price’s story parallels so many others I reported in Crossing the Threshold of Eternity. The truth is that the Bible tells us precious little about the other side, but these narratives give us compelling glimpse of what is beyond.

Thank you, Steve Price. Your experience helps.

I have a new book coming out.
