This week we will begin our show by discussing the afterlife as detailed in The Urantia Book. We will then spend an hour with Dannion Brinkley.  Dannion is a best selling author and a reader of the Urantia Book.

In his first book, Saved by the Light, Dannion describes being struck by lightning on September 17, 1975, while using a telephone at his home in Aiken, South Carolina. He was clinically dead for 28 minutes. During these 28 minutes he experienced many characteristic details of a near death experience as well as certain unique ones. His account includes an out-of-body experience with extensive observations of physical surroundings, passing through a tunnel, a detailed life review and an encounter with beings who showed him visions of the future and discussed with him his life mission. Brinkley said he had a strong reluctance to return to his physical body, but he was sent back to fulfill a mission.

Shortly thereafter, Dannion told his story to near-death researcher Raymond Moody. In the Introduction to Saved by the Light, Moody wrote that Brinkley's near death experience stands as one of the most incredible he has ever heard.

In May 1989 Brinkley had heart failure and went to the East Cooper Hospital in Charleston, South Carolina where he had a second near death experience. Brinkley said he had another life review and was taken by a being to a place with pleasant sounds and smells. He was released from the hospital a few weeks later.

On September 17, 1997 Brinkley had brain surgery to remove a subdural hematoma and had a third near death experience.

Dannion's life mission since 1975 has been to help people understand how powerful they are and how loved they are by "them up there."  And also that they don't need to be afraid of death. Dannion is an amazing inspirational speaker and you will surely find this show uplifting and interesting. Please tune in.
