Have you ever wondered what God thinks of your religion? Nanci Danison found out in the most dramatic way possible-she died. Backwards Beliefs will forever change your understanding of how religions arose and whether they are crucial to entering the afterlife. The reader will witness firsthand, through the author's eyes, the creation of the universe, early man's need for gods and religions, the roles religious messengers have played throughout history, the origin of the Christian churches, Earth's future, and more. Backwards Beliefs provides an incredible peek into mankind's history as it actually happened, a gift granted to the author during an afterlife experience in response to her concern that what she learned by dying contradicted her Christian education. This first-of-its-kind book reconciles some divergent spiritual vs. religious viewpoints with simple, clear, and easy-to-understand explanations of how eternal truths became hidden in human belief systems.

About the Author:
Nanci L. Danison holds a B.S., magna cum laude, with double majors in biology and chemistry, a B.A., magna cum laude, in psychology, and a doctorate in jurisprudence. Until 1994, she was living the life of a successful trial lawyer in a large Midwestern law firm. She often lectured on a national level and wrote on health law topics for the health care industry. Then she had a near-death experience (NDE). After returning from beyond, she left the security of her big firm and started a successful solo practice in health law. Her activities post-NDE include being named in the 1998 Who's Who in American Law, earning a pilot's license in 2000, and being listed in the 2006 Bar Registry of Preeminent Lawyers. She still practices law and writes books on what she remembers from her life in the Light.
Review:

"Danison presents an account of spiritual beliefs gleaned from her near-death experience. At 43, Danison (Backwards Guidebook, 2009, etc.) died shortly before an operation. After a brief period where her heart stopped due to anaphylactic shock or hypoglycemia, she spontaneously revived. During the time that she was dead, however, Danison experienced a series of profound visions that would dramatically influence the rest of her life. In her third book concerning near-death experiences, the author sets out to compare the spiritual truths she learned during the experience with ideas from organized religion. She describes realizing or remembering truths about the universe, witnessing the Big Bang and understanding that beings are not truly individuals but manifestations of God. The book describes Danison s experiences in simplistic prose using New Age terms, referring to her experiences as knowings, God as the Source and those in the afterlife as Light Beings. Throughout her near-death experience, Danison realized that humans never learned Christian dogma and teachings from the Source. Instead, they constructed religious ideas and the concept of a messiah who will lead them back to the divine and out of fear and an inability to understand that humans are the Source they exist as thoughts and fragments of the Source s consciousness. The book provides typical apocalyptic warnings, describing a transitional period beginning around 2013 that involves natural disasters, mass pandemics and flooding. Disappointingly, the book doesn t provide a very complex investigation of near-death experiences and religion, instead skimming over the basic history of Christianity and comparing it to Danison s experience, such as her witnessing the evolution of Christianity from early disjointed groups. Likewise, while Danison s visions may theoretically have been hallucinations, the book presents them as physical and spiritual truths. Readers interested in near-death experiences may find the book compelling for its depiction of reality, but those who don t accept Danison s experience at face value will struggle with the text. Too narrow in scope to provide a legitimate comparison between near-death experiences and organized Christianity."

KIRKUS BOOK REVIEWS

"What a fascinating and disturbing book (in a good way)." -- Editor, FATE Magazine



At age 43, the author had a near death experience. During prep for surgery, her blood pressure suddenly dropped to nothing, her heart stopped, and she left her body. What she experienced changed her life.

In Backwards Beliefs, the author looks at the myths and truths surrounding religion and spirituality. During her NDE, she learned much about the creation of our universe and about our purpose here. Upon reflection, she was surprised at how much of what she had been previously taught had been misinterpreted or manipulated by people.

Depending upon your perspective, this book may have a number of surprising revelations. However, the  conversation that attracted my attention was one looking at the nature of the human body. At one point, the author stated outright, we are not human beings, we are merely borrowing this shell for a time to experience what it is like to be a human. Essentially, this follows the notion that we are spiritual beings but with resounding clarity. --Tami Brady



Following a near-death experience, the author presents the history of human religion, the role of religious messengers, the origins of Christian churches, renowned Bible scholars' research, and how eternal truths became hidden in human beliefs. --Publishers Weekly, October 17, 2011



"During a near-death experience, Danison connected with Source (her term for a universal spirit in which all of creation resides) and viewed the entirety of human religious history. Additionally, she came to realize the ways her Judeo-Christian upbringing misled her and how people use organized religion for personal gain. Danison conveys a message of universal love and hope, and encourages readers to abandon any fear of death and be skeptical of people using religion to advance nonspiritual agendas or claim exclusive license over the truth. She also provides a summary of the evolution of the Judeo-Christian tradition to highlight where humanity has erred in the path from universal truth. Her insights come across as harmless and well-meaning, and while readers may be skeptical about near-death experiences and comprehensive instantaneous knowledge of the universe after death, her points about universal love and good works are positive. However, readers will find her credibility strained when she begins predicting future events.
