If enough people read about love, peace and hope; maybe they can change to become more loving, compassionate people who truly live their lives without fear.

We can then change the world to become a better place like heaven on earth - as above, so below.

NDERF inspired books!

Jeffrey Long, MD

For those who want to know

God and the Afterlife expands upon Dr. Long’s findings about the afterlife and is the first deep scientific exploration of NDE accounts that encounter God or spiritual beings. He shares accounts from NDErs who meet God. What he discovers is that these testimonials share unique similarities that provide overwhelming evidence that God is real.

Read some of the best NDEs.

This is a feel-good book with some of the most profound NDEs ever submitted to NDERF. This book was written to share NDEs with people who enjoy reading books or who don't have access to a computer.

Love & Relationships

Love is the number one idea described by the NDErs and learning about love through relationships is the number one reason we come to earth. This book puts the two concepts together to help learn to apply them in our own lives.

Takes NDE Research to a whole new level!

“There is currently more scientific evidence to the reality of near death experience (NDE) than there is for how to effectively treat certain forms of cancer,” states radiation oncologist Dr. Jeffrey Long in his groundbreaking book Evidence of the Afterlife.
