At the age of twenty, George Ritchie died in an Army hospital. Nine minutes later, he returned to life. What happened to him during those minutes was so compelling that it changed his life forever. In Return from Tomorrow, Ritchie tells of his transforming encounter with the Son of God, who led him to encounters with other nonphysical beings at the very doorway of eternity. Ritchie?'s extraordinary experience not only altered his view of eternity, but it has also altered the lives of hundreds of thousands of readers. One of the most startling and hopeful descriptions of the realm beyond, this classic will inspire readers from all walks of life. It includes a brand-new preface from Elizabeth Sherrill.… (mer)

Excellent. Best overall NDE book. ( )

I'm in the middle with this one...

*This review may contain spoilers*

I picked this up because I really enjoy reading about people who have had near death experiences. I find it so interesting how different these experiences are for people, and it's not just the "light" that they see. George saw much more than that. He had a travel experience and a visit with Christ.

At first I was amazed and couldn't wait to read on, but the feel was off. Was he just having a dream? This experience went on for what seems like forever, yet he was only dead for 9 minutes. Not only that, the experience ends with Jesus taking him back to Earth, yet it's really the caretaker who stabs his heart with adrenaline that brings him back to life again. Then, there's the remembrance he has to a cafe he'd never been to, but went to in his travels during the NDE. I found that amazing, but was God trying to reassure him? I mean of all places, he's back at the cafe on a trip back to boot camp?

Regardless what really happened, the book sends many messages to how we should love and live well. To love and forgive is the way to go no matter what. If only it were that easy for everyone...

The author dies during a routine surgery and goes to the other side. I read this years ago, but I still remember the harrowing scene where substance-abusing addict-spirits were crawling all over humans participating in the activities the spirits craved to mortally do -- e.g., drinking, drugging, sexing, etc. -- trying to get some sort of "energy hit" from their unknowing mortal proxies. It's a very to consider that whatever desires control you in this life will pass on with you to the other side. ( )

First of all, I will state that I am not particularly religious. I am more of an agnostic when it comes to organized religion. I have a hard time reconciling all of the evil done in the name of religion.

However, I do believe in the spirit (that undefinable essence within each one of us) and that it may live on in some fashion after death. I have had a couple of interesting experiences where I "think" I saw a ghost (2 separate times) and once felt the presence of something unseen that I cannot explain.

So I am open to a discussion on the subject and it is with that in mind I picked up this book and gave it a read. Basically it is the story of a young man during WWII who was clinically dead for 9 minutes due to pneumonia , resulting in an out-of-body experience, meeting with what seems to be Jesus, given a tour of what seems to be purgatory and returned to Earth to begin life again as a new man with new attitude to life/death.

As I read this story the out-of-body experience struck me to be a lot like that described by Larry Niven's book "Inferno"... it was very close to it in feeling. Now, Niven reportedly based his book (published 2 years earlier 1976) on Dantes Inferno, whereas "Return from Tomorrow" is supposed to be a real story.

Perhaps Mr. Ritchie did have a true experience (waiting almost 40 years before writing the story seems a bit weird), or perhaps he read "Dantes Inferno" and/or Niven's "Inferno". That is unknown to me, I found the book to be an easy read but not an inspirational book in any way. This coincidence that I outlined prevents me from thinking of it any more than just a story ( )

George Ritchie, a successful and respected psychiatrist, tells the story of a nine-minute near death experience that he underwent when he was in the military in World War II. ( )
