“The results of the Near-Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF) study… finds that what people discovered during their near-death experience about God, love, afterlife, reason for our earthly existence, earthly hardships, forgiveness, and many other concepts is strikingly consistent across cultures, races, and creeds. Also, these discoveries are generally not what would have been expected from preexisting societal beliefs, religious teachings, or any other source of earthly knowledge.”

— Dr. Jeffrey Long, Evidence of the Afterlife (2010)

“Remarkably, the content of near-death experiences is strikingly consistent. Even after rigorously studying NDEs for over fifteen years, I still marvel at how amazingly similar these experiences are regardless of the experiencers’ age, cultural beliefs, education, or geographical location. By comparing these accounts, we begin to see a coherent picture of this other world.”

— Dr. Jeffrey Long, God and the Afterlife (2016)

“Merely learning about the near-death experience has effects similar to those reported by NDErs.”

— Researcher Kenneth Ring, Lessons from the Light

“Studying near-death experiences over the last three years has had more positive impact on my spiritual growth and personal relationships than all my previous decades of traditional prayer and study! Thanks and blessings to all who have shared their experiences, and to those who bring them to the public’s attention!”

— Sarah Pierzchala
