Thanks for this Brian! I always enjoy hearing from Gary Habermas. I'm hoping to pick up Beyond Death soon. It sounds like an interesting read.

Russell, Beyond Death was the book which introduced me to Gary Habermas and he is one of my favorite apologists! I've been privileged to see him speak live on a number of occasions. My investigation of near-death experiences and the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus has been tremendously enhanced by his work.

Thanks again for this site, Brian!
