What Is it Like to Be Dead?

Christianity, the Occult, and Near-Death Experiences

Jens Schlieter

Oxford Studies in Western Esotericism

  • First study dealing with near-death experiences as a decisive element of modern religious discourse
  • Demonstrates how important elements such as the "panoramic life review," "tunnel experience," or "out-of-body experience" were combined with traditional elements of Christian deathbed narratives
  • Provides previously undiscovered accounts of near-death experiences from 1580-1975
