Yesterday when sick I read this. Apparently true story, clearly an LDS writer, tale of his near death/beyond-the-veil experience. Yet it wasn't published by any LDS publisher I recognized. What are the church's thoughts on books like this?

Where are we going and why are we in this handbasket?

I'm surprised nobody's commented on this yet. I think the book looks interesting to say the least. I'd like to find a copy for myself and take a look at it. Unfortunately I don't have an answer for ya, Backroads; just wanted to say that I'll be reading it myself eventually ... perhaps. :)

Lance is my double-cousin. Good guy, humble man in humble circumstances.

I read the book some time ago; I remember that I liked it very much. As to the Church's take on it; I haven't heard of anything from the Church authorities proper. He's still a member in very good standing (last I heard, and knowing him a bit, that fits).

I did quite like it and found it fascinating. I guess I like to pick at the whys.

Where are we going and why are we in this handbasket?

Didn't he die a few years ago (and not come back)?

Didn't get the memo--- I'll have to check with his sister, Eva.

Thanks for posting that, Jujubeemom3. I had assumed it was my aunt's brother, but I see that while he was her relative, he was not her brother. I bought his book at a family reunion, which I guess led to my misunderstanding.
