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.


Part Two

Last week I reported that The November/December issue of The Saturday Evening Post ran an article on near-death experiences written by Bruce Greyson, M.D. and Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, parallels my findings. Here’s more of what he related.

In over a half century of investigation, Dr. Greyson  found that often there were similarities in people’s experiences. One-third change occupations and three-fourths made important changes in their lifestyles or activities. These changes were mostly consistent with people who had been involved in occupations that involved violence such as policemen or the military.

Thirty-six-year-old policeman Joe Geraci was used to seeing bloodshed in his work. Yet after his NDE (near-death experience) he could no longer watch TV because it was too violent. On an assignment, he endangered himself and another officer because he couldn’t fire his gun. He resigned and returned to being a teacher.

NDE survivor Emily was 49 when she sank while swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. Yet, her NDE survival changed everything. Her values shifted. She had been a successful real estate dealer for 17 years. She turned her business over to one of her sons and joined the Lutheran Church Home where she does marketing for the elderly. She says, “I now live to the fullest and would never, never be afraid of dying.”

What an encouraging word. There is more to life –And death—that we would ever have thought!

I have a new book coming out.
