Thousands of people have had near-death experiences, but scientists have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander was one of those scientists. A highly trained neurosurgeon, Alexander knew that NDEs feel real, but are simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress.
Then, Dr. Alexander’s own brain was attacked by a rare illness. The part of the brain that controls thought and emotion—and in essence makes us human—shut down completely. For seven days he lay in a coma. Then, as his doctors considered stopping treatment, Alexander’s eyes popped open. He had come back.
Alexander’s recovery is a medical miracle. But the real miracle of his story lies elsewhere. While his body lay in coma, Alexander journeyed beyond this world and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of super-physical existence. There he met, and spoke with, the Divine source of the universe itself.
Alexander’s story is not a fantasy. Before he underwent his journey, he could not reconcile his knowledge of neuroscience with any belief in heaven, God, or the soul. Today Alexander is a doctor who believes that true health can be achieved only when we realize that God and the soul are real and that death is not the end of personal existence but only a transition.
This story would be remarkable no matter who it happened to. That it happened to Dr. Alexander makes it revolutionary. No scientist or person of faith will be able to ignore it. Reading it will change your life.
My Life After Death begins on the tragic day when Erik Medhus took his own life. What follows is a moment-by-moment account of the spiritual life he discovers on the other side—told for the very first time in his own words as channeled by medium Jamie Butler and then transcribed by his mother Elisa.
Overflowing with his signature honesty and candor, Erik describes more than just a visit to the afterlife. He personally walks us through the experience of dying, transitioning into spirit form, and reveals a detailed look at the life awaiting us on the other side.
In this intimate and provocative memoir, crucial questions will finally be answered, including: What does it feel like to die? What is it like to become a spirit? Why and how do spirits communicate with the living? Is there a heaven? Ultimately, Erik’s story provides the answers that will help readers find solace and remove the fears surrounding death, showing that love has no boundaries and life does not truly end.
LOVE KNOWS NO BOUNDARIES—NOT EVEN DEATH
Dr. Elisa Medhus never believed in life after death. As an accomplished physician, she placed her faith in science. All of that changed after her son Erik took his own life and then reached out from the other side.
Intimate, heartbreaking, and illuminating, go on an incredible journey from grief and skepticism to healing and belief. Based on Medhus’s wildly popular blog, Channeling Erik, My Son and the Afterlife provides answers to the most universal questions of being human.
At once tragic and uplifting, Erik speaks from the other side with candor, wisdom, and depth as he describes his own experiences and provides new answers about the nature of souls, death, and the afterlife—answers that have the potential to change our lives forever.
When Dr. Eben Alexander told the story of his near-death experience and his vivid journey to the other side, many readers wrote to say it resonated with them profoundly. Thanks to them, Dr. Alexander realized that sharing his story allowed people to rediscover what so many in ancient times knew: there is more to life, and the to the universe, than this single earthly life.
Dr. Alexander and his co-author Ptolemy Tompkins were surprised to see how often his readers’ visions of the afterlife synced up with each other and with those of the world’s spiritual leaders, as well as its philosophers and scientists. In The Map of Heaven, he shares the stories people have told him and shows how they are echoed both in the world’s faiths and in its latest scientific insights. It turns out there is much agreement, across time and terrain, about the journey of the soul and its survival beyond death.
In this book, Dr. Alexander makes the case for heaven as a genuine place, showing how we have forgotten, but are now at last remembering, who we really are and what our destiny truly is.
Unlocking a great mystery that has puzzled scholars for nearly two thousand years, THE BABYLON CODE reveals how powerful forces are now at work to create a global government, cashless society, and universal religion as predicted by the prophets.
The result of a five-year journalistic investigation, THE BABYLON CODE takes readers on a spellbinding journey to explore the link between the world's most secret organizations, the Bible's greatest prophetic riddle, and what world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham describes as a convergence in end-time signs for the first time in history.
This prophetic mystery book pieces together the apocalyptic puzzle--uncovering what may be not only the biggest story and political scandal in modern history, but also the secret to both our survival and our salvation.
In End of Days, Browne tackles the most daunting of subjects with her trademark clarity, wisdom, and serenity, answering such difficult questions as: What's coming in the next fifty years? The Mayan calendar predicts the world will end in 2012-but what will really happen? What do the great prophecies of Nostradamus and the Book of Revelation mean?

Iran has repeatedly declared its intention to destroy Israel. ISIS continues to gain ground, leaving a trail of death and terror in its wake. And Russia is inserting itself into Middle Eastern affairs in a power play prophesied long ago.
ISIS, Iran, Israel is an updated edition of the book Iran and Israel by prophecy scholar Mark Hitchcock, with all-new information on ISIS, Russian involvement in Syria and Iran, and the state of relations between Israel and Iran. Hitchcock brings a strong biblical perspective to the latest conflicts, while answering important questions such as...
An eye-opening survey of where things stand and how it all ties in with Bible prophecy.
“For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. They will reject the truth and chase after myths.” —2 Timothy 4:3-4
Jesus Christ is coming back. It is certainly a Christian’s greatest hope during these difficult times. The Bible warns us that the last days will be tumultuous—wars and rumors of wars will spread (Matthew 24:6). In our age, the world seems to be spinning out of control, creating fear, confusion, and uncertainty. In addition to violence, pestilence, and epidemics, the Bible predicts a great “falling away” from God in the end times. Bible teachers call that “the great apostasy.” Are we seeing evidence today in the church of this massive rejection of sound and wholesome teaching? Bestselling authors Mark Hitchcock and Jeff Kinley team up to examine the evidence from the teachers of our time. Are today’s teachers allowing people to follow their own desires by telling them what they want to hear, as the Bible clearly predicts? Are major portions of the church ready to abandon sound and wholesome teaching?
Together, Mark and Jeff explore alarming trends among today’s church leaders and they are simply stunned by what they discover. The great apostasy is coming, but is it closer than we imagine? What does that mean for the future? Let Mark and Jeff be your steady guides to the difficult days ahead.
By arranging these prophecies, with footnotes, according to the period or the subject matter to which they refer, this book greatly clarifies what the prophets have said about the latter days, the final days before the Second Coming and the commencement of the Millennium.
The existence of Planet X is beyond any reasonable doubt, to a moral certainty. We examine proofs of its existence. In fact, if you want to ask one simple question that posits the theory of the reality of Planet X, just ask yourself where did 2.2 Trillion disappear to in the Pentagon's budget that Rumsfeld said was missing, and why do we have over 100 Underground Deep Bunkers throughout the U.S.? Why are critical government infrastructures moving from their susceptible positions on the East Coast to the protected areas of Colorado?
But let's look at the astronomical evidence. I have seen Planet X on the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) through WorldWide Telescope. This is a NASA infrared-wavelength astronomical space telescope, launched in December 2009. It is currently in the constellation Pisces, and is clearly marked as an Unidentified Object (but quite plainly visible dark red star) known as IC 5385.
If you'd like to view it yourself, you can install WorldWide Telescope. Just Google it and you'll be right at the page. It's an observatory on your desktop and the most sophisticated online program I've seen. You can view in multi-wavelength views and see stars and planets in context to each other.
But back to our main topic—Planet X. This book is a must-read and a Survival Guide to the most important story of the century. It's also a page-turner, so I invite you to read and experience it now.

Understanding the Book of Revelation for Today
The Book of Revelation is not a book of doom and gloom but rather the story of victory of the Lamb of God and those who follow Him. In this third book in a groundbreaking series, Dr. Richard Booker explains John’s vision within its original historical, literary, and biblical context.
Written in Dr. Booker’s usual clear style, The Victorious Kingdom is powerful, prophetic, practical, and personal—ideal for individual or group study. The Victorious Kingdom, shares fresh perspectives that include:Reading Revelation within the context of its biblical Jewish roots Learning the historical and spiritual background of the seven churches (congregations) Learning the influence of Greek mythology and Roman imperial cult worship
Understanding the Book of Revelation is a three-volume series that helps you see the future by examining the past: Volume 1–The Overcomers, Volume 2–The Lamb and the Seven-Sealed Scroll, andVolume 3–The Victorious Kingdom.
In God's Time offers an alternative to these two poles in the debate, an alternative that is at once faithful and sane, readable and scholarly. Author Craig C. Hill encourages Christians both to take seriously and to think sensibly about the hope of God's ultimate victory. His new book includes chapters on the nature of the Bible, the history of prophecy, the meaning of apocalyptic writings, the interpretation of Daniel and Revelation, the expectations of Jesus, and the hopes of the early Christians. It also includes an appendix ("Not Left Behind") on the subject of the rapture.
Endorsed by a wide array of top scholars and church leaders, In God's Time is a reliable guide to this often bewildering but always fascinating subject.

Were Jesus and the New Testament writers wrong? If Jesus and the writers of the New Testament were wrong, they could not have been inspired, and Jesus Himself was a false prophet. This critical problem must be addressed by the church.
Could the "last days" be referring to the final days of the Old Covenant order rather than to the end of the physical universe? Was the "time of the end" when Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed in AD 70—the date when the ancient covenantal system of temple sacrifices for sin ended forever? Could many modern Christians have misunderstood what Jesus meant by his Parousia (his "Second Coming") —that it was to be a divine, but non-visible "coming in judgment" against the Jews in AD 70—similar to God's coming in judgment against the Jews or their enemies on multiple occasions in the Old Testament? Could the King James Version of the Bible have misled English speaking Christians for 400 years about certain critical details?
This book explores these possibilities, which if true, resolve the challenges to the accuracy of the Bible. The author examines the growing view of Bible prophecy called "preterism" or "covenant eschatology." This is the view that most, if not all prophecy has been fulfilled, completely disarming the challenges by Christianity's opponents. Before you dismiss this idea, you should test your presuppositions against what the Bible actually says. The preterist view has been held by some Christians since the first century and is gaining adherents today as flaws in the popular theories are being critically examined and discredited. Evangelical preterism restores Jesus as a true prophet and the Bible as reliable and authoritative.
The torrent of popular books and claims about biblical prophecy in recent decades seems to have a peculiar appeal to lay believers who, curiously enough, find hope in an expected destruction of the planet and its replacement with a utopia in which even carnivorous animals will take up vegetarianism. It is simply taken for granted that the Bible predicts and explains an end of time, and that there is no number of elapsed centuries spent waiting for it that cannot be called the "end times." This book upends such notions and will be of considerable interest to any Christian who takes the Bible seriously but is confounded, confused, and frustrated with the near comical, but sad state of affairs that afflicts modern Christianity on the question of the supposed end of all things.
The book is the product of over 10 years of research by the author, along with input from eight contributors. The book critically examines all of the popular views of Bible prophecy, many of which are contradictory or are little more than fanciful speculations without biblical support. It is written in easy-to-follow language for the informed layman, and it clearly and definitively answers the objections to the preterist view.
If you have never studied Bible prophecy carefully, or if the various modern views of prophecy just do not make sense when you read your Bible, this book will give you increased confidence in God's Word. It covers all of the eschatological topics including the New Heaven and New Earth, the Day of the Lord, the End of the Age, the Apocalypse, the Beast, the Great Tribulation, the Millennium, the Second Coming, the Kingdom of God, the Rapture, the Resurrection, and more. It brings extraordinary clarity to a difficult subject. Fear not to be challenged and changed.
Addressing His Church, Jesus Himself declared, "All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world" (Matthew 28:18-20 KJV).
Many Christian prophecy books and end-time movies predict that all "true believers" will miss the end because they will vanish in an event called "the Rapture"-when they will supposedly be taken to Heaven early-while those left behind will be forced to endure seven nightmarish years of apocalyptic terror during the time of the Antichrist.
Is this true? What does the Bible really say?
About the end times Jesus Christ warned,"Take heed that no man deceive you" (Matthew 24:4). Paul also predicted that many would be ensnared by "strong delusion" because "they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved" (2 Thessalonians 2:10-11 KJV).
The future is upon us-but it will be different from what the majority expect.
Get ready for it.

God's timeless promises offer hope to believers who are grieved at the state of the world.

- What does the Bible say about the antichrist?

Today’s bestseller lists are filled with stories of those who have claimed to experienced heaven firsthand. Curiosity about what will happen after we die is as strong as ever in the twenty-first century. Yet, each book contains a different story about what we will experience in heaven.
What are we to believe? What is true?
In Visits to Heaven and Back: Are They Real? Mark Hitchcock, a respected Bible teacher, sorts out the facts. He chronicles the recent phenomenon of “heaven” books, comparing and contrasting the ideas presented in these books and revealing the discrepancies and contradictions. Then, Mark turns to the Bible, laying out clearly the teachings about heaven and experiences in this life of another world. The Bible does reveal that there is a world beyond this one, but it also contains clear warnings and amazing promises.
Discover today God’s clear and certain promises concerning heaven.
In spite of this growing awareness and appreciation of the events of AD 70, it is increasingly common, especially in the Amillennial and Postmillennial world, to claim that the end of the age judgment in AD 70 was a type of the real “end of the world.” This idea has become increasingly popular since the advocates of Covenant Eschatology, i.e. full preterism.
Very clearly, if the “AD 70 was a type of the real end” hermeneutic and claim is false, then Amillennialism and Postmillennialism– not to mention Dispensationalism-- are falsified.
if the futurist schools cannot prove, with solid exegetical support, that the events of AD 70 were typological of another true end of the age, then in reality, all futurist eschatologies fail. If AD 70 was not a foreshadowing of another eschaton, then the AD 70 parousia and end of the age must have been the “real one.”
This book, the only one of its kind ever produced, proves beyond doubt that AD 70 was not typological. It did not point to another end of the age, or another coming of the Lord.
This book slams the door shut on all futurist eschatologies! It is truly a "game changer!"
Part I presents the incredible story of Isaiah himself. The reader not only becomes acquainted with the sensitive and scintillating personality of this prophet, but also discovers the unfolding of 2,700 years of kaleidoscopic future history as Isaiah saw it in prophetic vision.
Part II of this book makes a most unique contribution by presenting for the first time in this much detail, a comprehensive verse-by-verse commentary on the entire book of Isaiah. The reader may be surprised to learn how much of Isaiah’s writings were devoted to prophecies concerning our day.
Hundreds of passages which have previously seemed obscure or confusing are treated with remarkable clarity and insight in this book.
W. Cleon Skousen has made a lifetime study of the Bible and the reader will soon appreciate why his lectures on Isaiah have proven so highly popular during the past fifteen years.
In this book the reader may be surprised to learn how much of Isaiah’s writings were devoted to prophecies concerning our day. After reading the text of this great prophet’s discourses, we can literally say “Isaiah Speaks to Modern Times.”
