Spiritual Reading and Poetry
Near death experiences tantalize the public’s interest in what lies beyond the final human breath. Answers have been streaming by the thousands during the last few decades from people who have had them. However, grand designs can only be splendidly revealed by connecting thousands of NDE accounts like a jigsaws puzzle. In his groundbreaking book, Psychology of the Near Death Experience, Roy L. Hill roughly sketches God’s canvas by integrating hundreds of NDE testimonies within the context of human psychology. As an inquisitive psychologist with strong spiritual roots, Roy’s book uniquely mixes academic curiosity with a deep reverence for the sacred. The reader can expect exposure to profound spiritual insights throughout the book. Systems of meaning will be challenged, new purpose will be defined, and the nature of self will be primed for discovery. Dr. Roy Hill covers diverse number of topics that include the true meaning of the NDE, the nature of soul, personal mission to serve the God in love, knowing how to love, spiritual beings, lost souls, God’s diversity, the purpose of time, and the need for global spiritual transformation. Roy also includes several amazing case interviews with people who had near death experiences. Through this presentation, it is hoped that Psychology and the Near Death Experience may aid the spiritual explorer in their search for God.

Roy L. Hill, Psy.D. has worked as a clinical psychologist for over twenty years. During his professional career, Roy supervised prison departments, managed mental health programs, provided general clinical services, and actively participated in crisis management teams. Despite a rewarding career, Roy believes that his most important work lies ahead; lending voice to our ambassadors from heaven.

Very honest and well reflected.

Very honest and well reflected
At first I thought this would be a book written from a psychologist to psychologists, and that it would help us in our clinical work, then, I realized it is more an honest reflection of a person who has taken the time to analyse the accounts of the Near Death Experiencers, and has integrated them beautifully to his own conception of God and his spiritual values. I was moved by his transparency because he dares to talk about his Christian beliefs and blend them smoothly with his knowledge and experience about psychology. I will quote some of the paragraphs that I liked the most:
…the near-death experience is not religion, nor is it meant to replace religion.
…it is the aim of this book to stretch the reader’s understanding of the divine; for the spiritual seeker to think about the large questions of the existence in a new way.
…the NDE may allow the believer to discriminate between spiritual integrity and religious corruption…
Humans exist as a part of God’s consciousness. Yet, we are still unique based on our qualities shaped over time and experience. Collectively, our personalities make a rich tapestry for the entire conscious universe. This is not to say, however, that we must maintain parts of our personality inconsistent with the Source…it is our mission to refine these inconsistent aspects of our personality.
Although God loves us unconditionally, we fail to appreciate this love due to our disconnection to the Divine.
…it does not matter if you are imprisoned or disabled, God’s love shines brightest in some of the most unlikely of people; individuals who are imprisoned in body, but who are free in both mind and spirit.
Judgment….only keeps people from healing.

Not your typical NDE book in a great way!
By Evil Dad on September 1, 2015
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase 2 of 2 people found this review helpful
“An awesome read” The Prologue to the book will even get you hooked, how often does that happen? !! This book is well written and very well thought out. His view from a psychology standpoint and spiritual take is very insightful and thought provoking. It’s refreshing to see a view on this topic from the vantage point of a psychologist. It helps you understand yourself (analytically) and your connection to the divine without sounding religious, or over the top, or “another one of those ‘NDE’ books”. There are chapters devoted to some scientific explanation which helps put things in perspective. This author has worked with some really bad people in prisons and this brings a unique view to things as well. Working in the medical field, I have had a friend and fellow engineer die in the Cath lab for nearly 45 minutes. He told me what he saw and was told by the God and a ‘collective consciousness” on the other side- its has transformed me in my tracks and I have been researching it ever since. I have read quite a bit and have utilized the site like this author has for some of his examples. He has quotes and explanations from CS Lewis and many other great thinkers you may not have heard about and that in itself is a small guide to more reading if you are interested. We all have a path in life to follow, this book has served me in better finding my direction in life. I hope you can benefit from it too.

This book belongs in the medical schools and on the coffee tables of the American household…..Honestly Brilliant!

As a nurse, my medical profession and personal Near-Death Experience account, have led me to be more determined than ever to increase my knowledge of the Afterlife. As I continue my research into all areas of this phenomenon, I feel a sense of responsibility to share with others information that I personally feel has the potential to be used as powerful tools. Roy Hill has managed to do just that! As I read Psychology and the Near-Death Experience, I was so impressed that I couldn’t put it down! My reasoning is simple, I feel that many times valuable information is shared but not processed to the magnitude it deserves due to delivery of the message. In my opinion, Roy has managed to create the needed balance to increase not limit his audience. I feel he accomplished this by clearly demonstrating his professional experience in psychology coupled with words to paper that won’t cause the reader to walk away scratching their heads as they try to comprehend the information given. I strongly encourage those of you interested in expanding your awareness of the Afterlife to most definitely add this tool to your “toolbox”.

Extremely Thought Provoking – Would Recommend
By Dora Goodall on August 23, 2015
Format: Paperback1 of 1 people found this review helpful
The author of this book, Roy L Hill, provides a unique look at near-death experiences and psychology, propelled by his own spiritual journey – and in doing so analyses core human questions and beliefs from new perspectives. There is an intriguing suggestion that near-death experiences will help radically change humanity’s view of itself, a notion supported by the rise in similar literature and NDE accounts. The book is well written and well-documented and provides more weight to the growing, universal belief that we are not only human, but are spiritual beings too. So much in life is still a mystery to us, but this book helps us gain a deeper understanding of this mystery. Would highly recommend.

This book is unique. No one had ever written a book on NDE’s from the viewpoint of a clinical psychologist.
The author is objective, deep, with a broad culture, knowledgeable of the human brain and mind, with a great experience in patients with pathological hallucinations. This is why he knows that NDE’s are not hallucinations.
He doesn’t reject the spiritual experiences he has had as “not scientific”. He leaves dogmatic religions and dogmatic science aside, and with his broadmindedness he integrates science and spirituality as two sides of the same coin.
The book is deep and deserves to be read at least two times, as most serious books do.
