    the book does mention Jesus twice, but only in passing, and Jesus is not included in the index.

    As I said above, as a very religious Catholic, I don't think this book is inconsistent with Christianity.

      and go to Mass every week, and I love this book. I think Christians who have a problem with this book are too wedded to a certain brand of dogma. Dr. Alexander's experience isn't inconsistent with what Christ taught, for sure, but it is troublesome for some fire-and-brimstone versions of Christianity, and for Christians who want to hear that only members of their own church are loved by God.

      Actually, this book has given me a lot of food for thought during Mass, the last few weeks. It would be very interesting to explore in a systematic way what near-death experiences might teach us about the deeper meanings of Catholic teaching.
