A mean, loud-mouthed town bully is talking on the phone one night during a lightning storm when, in a freak occurrence, a bolt of lightning strikes a telephone pole, travels down the phone wires and hits him. He is declared clinically dead, but miraculously recovers shortly thereafter--with a completely new personality and, he claims, the ability to communicate with the dead. Written by

Dannion Brinkley had a NDE, short for Near-Death Experience. This is a term established for the first time by doctor Raymond Moody in his 1975's book "Life After Life". In it, Moody compiled real stories about patients who by a brief time had died and later lived again. The different stories had several common points:
-To be out of the physical body.
-Float around the rooftop of the room, seeing the own body in the bedroom.
-X-rays senses, with capability to see and hear people (familiar, friends...) in the next rooms, or even long-distance senses, with capability to see and hear people far away from their own location.
-Travel by a tunnel to high speed, with a great white light at the end.
-Meet in the light parents and friends previously dead.
-See a retrospective about the own lifeline, like movie frames.
-Feel a great peace and tranquility while standing in the light.
-Feel (not see) the presence of a powerful entity look-a-like a god.
-A voice saying "It's not your time" or something similar, and return from the light.
-Have a great feeling to fall from a high altitude, returning to the physical body and finally back to life. See more
