Mally Cox-Chapman graduated for Yale University and has written for Time-Life Books, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and New Age. This is her second book. Her appearance on NBC's Dateline about "The Case for Heaven" received the highest audience rating in the history of the show to that time. She lives in Connecticut with her husband and there two children.From Library Journal:
Does heaven exist? Where is it? What is it like? Who will go there? Are there angelic guides to heaven? Journalist Cox-Chapman, herself a near-death experiencer, explores such questions in interviews with over 50 other experiencers, comparing contemporary near-death experiences with those of historical figures as well as with examples from scriptures of various religious traditions. Drawing on relativity theory and astrophysics, the author offers the possibility that heaven is another dimension of reality. While recognizing the impossibility of "proving" that heaven exists, she says that "we can show that there is all the room in the world for its location." Overall, this is an engaging examination of near-death experiences as evidence of an afterlife. Skeptics will find it unconvincing; believers will find it reassuring. References and a substantial bibliography guide readers to other books on the topic. Given the popular interest in the subject, most libraries will get their money's worth from this book.?Linda V.
