Journalism Professor Judy Bachrach Publishes New Book: "Glimpsing Heaven, the Stories and Science of Life After Death"
On September 3rd, JCU journalism professor Judy Bachrach released her new book Glimpsing Heaven, the Stories and Science of Life After Death. The book was published by National Geographic Books and has sold over 15,000 copies since its release.
From the publisher’s website:
“Judy Bachrach has collected accounts of those who died and then returned to life with lucid, vivid memories of what occurred while they were dead, and the conclusions are astonishing. Clinical death—the moment when the heart stops beating and brain stem activity ceases—is not necessarily the end of consciousness, as a number of doctors are now beginning to concede. Hundreds of thousands of fascinating post-death experiences have been documented, and for many who have died and returned, life is forever changed.
Interviewing scores of these ‘death travelers,’ along with physicians, nurses, and neuroscientists, Bachrach carefully unravels some of the mysteries of the afterlife, and redefines the meaning of both life and death. Glimpsing Heaven reveals both the complexity and the surprising joys of life after death.”
Judy Bachrach is a contributing editor at Vanity Fair magazine.
