    This review is from: Return from Tomorrow (Paperback)

    I am very grateful that I came across this book and this author’s story. It gives me great joy to hear of someone who has also encountered Jesus and has gone through the emotional, spiritual and mental journey that this experience made us travel. I wouldn’t give up the experience even though it did cause much anxiety to my family and myself.

    I experienced a near death experience in May of 1974 at the age of 32. Like the author, I was a little fearful to share this experience because nobody that I knew had ever shared this type of experience.

    In 1975 our family was fortunate to be able to buy a Christian Book Shop and this is where I was able to come across some literature on my experience. Of course the great mystical saints like St. Theresa of Avila: God Alone Suffices, The Collected Works of Saint John of the Crosswrote many books on their mystical experiences with Jesus. Discovering Dr. Raymond Moody’s book “Life After Life: The Investigation of a Phenomenon–Survival of Bodily Death” was the greatest comfort for me at that time.

    In reading Return from Tomorrow, what is the most helpful is that with all the turmoil the author experienced he realized that love is the greatest of the gifts and it seems the message is the same in many cases, including my own experience.

    It is a “tall” order, it sounds so simple and the message is simple but the “ego” gets in the way and at times our self-centeredness comes forward. To let go and let God. At times we are our own worst enemies when it comes to the acceptance of being loved and in return loving others.

    Like the author, I started reading the bible with a different perspective. Before this “re-born” experience, I read with only an intellectual, study mind attitude, now I read the bible with my heart open wide.

    One of the best, classic, modern NDE accounts, May 17, 2005

    _I had heard of Dr. Ritchie and read exerts from this book for years before I finally got around to reading it myself. I am glad that I did, for it is a joy to read. My edition has an introduction by pioneering NDE researcher Dr. Raymond A. Moody, where he describes Ritchie’s experience as one of the three or four most interesting and well-documented cases out of the thousands that he has studied. In fact, he reveals that it was this experience that first attracted his attention to the phenomenon as a young philosophy student.

    _This is a classic account of the near death experience. It happened, and was later published, long before such experiences were publicized in the popular media. All the key elements are here: out-of-the-body travel, the being of light, the life review, spirits of different evolutionary development finding their own “level” with like spirits, the city of light, his disappointment after returning, etc. The “real world” verifications are especially striking, such as Ritchie recognizing that he was in Vicksburg, Mississippi during his out of body experience.

    _Yes, the author has a strong Christian perspective, but it is of the best, most open-minded sort. He mentions finding the spirit of Christ in people of all races and religions. I couldn’t help note that from the account it is the author that states that the being that he encountered was Jesus – not the being itself. It was obviously a manifestation of the Christ in its most pure, classical nature. However, it is clear to me that such a manifestation of living light from the Source could have also been labeled Apollo or Phanes, depending upon the experiencer’s background. In any case, any cultural colorations and additions are in the latter part of the account and can be easily recognized.

    _As for credibility, the author was an Eagle Scout, college graduate, combat veteran, medical doctor, and psychiatrist. He had no overwhelmingly strong dogmatic convictions before the experience- or apparently afterwards. This is about as credible as you are ever going to find.

    I just received my copy of this book today, and I’ve already finished reading it – a testament to just how good it is. I honestly couldn’t put it down!

    In “Return From Tomorrow”, George Ritchie describes his near-death experience – his glimpses of the self-imposed levels of hell, as well as the beauty inherent in the various levels of Heaven. He makes clear that God & Jesus are pure love, and that there is no such thing as being sentenced to a firey Hell. The Hells we experience are of our own making – by holding onto negative feelings such as hate & prejudice.

    This book rang true for me, but we all must decide for ourselves what the “truth” really is.

    Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in near-death experiences, the spiritual realms, &/or spirituality in general.
