Patricia Hofer is a 21st century Christian, a pilgrim jarred loose from what she’d always believed by a dramatic conversion experience. Not understanding what had happened to her, she started reading widely, looking for similar experiences in the lives and writings of other Christians. Her continuing walk with the Lord fills her days with new opportunities and surprises, resulting in fresh moments of insight. And these, supported by the inspiration and thoughts drawn from many great Christians and thinkers, are what she writes about. Driving Into The Dawn (2007), Yielding To Wonder (2009), Turning Aside To See (2011), Living Large (2012), and Living Calm (2016).
Can Reincarnation and “Near Death Experiences” be Christian?
If you are a Christian who is satisfied by the conventional views of heaven and hell, don’t read this book. However, if you feel there are more possibilities for the afterlife than streets of gold and fiery infernos, Can Reincarnation and “Near Death Experiences” be Christian? just might include the answers you’ve been seeking.
- the Bible contains the possibility of an intermediate and temporary place, a tarrying place for continuing life?
- the Bible shows that some human spirits have returned from that intermediate place throughout human history?
- the “living soul” of Genesis, the one inspired by God’s immortal “breath of life,” is the spirit of consciousness that survives the body — as some recent neuroscience research indicates?
- the Bible and Christian believing already contain the possibility for a reprieve, for a purifying process — a place where we meet and recognize other individuals?
- the forgiveness of “seventy times seven” required by God is offered by God? Wouldn’t that open the door to more opportunities, many stages of progress?
After seven books chronicling her Christian walk with the living Savior, Patricia Hofer thought she was done writing. But the Lord apparently had a different plan. These “what ifs” are the focus of Hofer’s eighth book and of her original and compelling research.
