Existe-t-il une vie après la mort ? Le destin décide parfois à votre place. C'est le cas de Jean-Jacques Charbonier dont la vie a basculé lors d'une intervention avec le SAMU, au sein duquel, alors jeune généraliste, il effectuait un stage de médecine d'urgence. En recueillant le dernier soupir d'un accidenté, le docteur Charbonier a rencontré " Cette chose ". Rien ne sera plus jamais comme avant. Il renonce à sa clientèle rurale et reprend ses études pour devenir anesthésiste-réanimateur. Car une révélation fracassante s'était imposée : l'âme survit à la mort du corps et continue d'exister dans une autre dimension. 30 ans après ces événements, Jean-Jacques Charbonier est devenu l'un des plus grands spécialistes au monde de la vie après la vie. Il nous livre dans cet ouvrage aussi personnel que passionnant le fruit de ses recherches sur le sujet. Itinéraire d'un homme et d'un scientifique face à l'un des plus grands mystères qu'il nous soit donné de résoudre : comment la conscience peut-elle se manifester en dehors du corps ?

An uplifting study of the scientific evidence for the afterlife from an experienced anesthesiologist/intensive care physician • Details meticulously recorded and hospital-verified cases of near-death experiences • Cites scientific research on NDEs to refute the standard objections of doubters and materialists point by point • Explores out-of-body experiences, sessions with mediums, electronic communication with the deceased, and other signs from the afterlife Over the course of his 25-year career as an anesthesiologist and intensive care physician, Jean Jacques Charbonier, M.D., gathered hundreds of accounts of patients who returned from clinical death. Across all of these accounts--from patients with vastly different backgrounds--Dr. Charbonier found striking similarities as well as indisputable proof that these experiences were more than hallucinations. He surveyed other physicians, nurses, and professional caregivers and discovered that their patients described the same experiences as well as exhibited the same positive life transformations afterward. Igniting a scientific quest to learn more, he collected more accounts of near-death experiences as well as out-of-body experiences, attended dozens of sessions with mediums, experimented successfully with electronic communication with the deceased (EVP), interviewed hundreds of people who have cared for the dying, and gathered countless inexplicable stories of “signs” from the afterlife. With each experience he studied, he found himself more firmly believing in the survival of consciousness beyond death. Dr. Charbonier distills his findings into 7 reasons to believe in the afterlife, beginning with the more than 60 million people worldwide who have reported a transcendent afterlife experience. He refutes the standard objections of doubters and materialists point by point, citing scientific research on NDEs and the work of pioneers in the field of consciousness studies such as Raymond Moody and Pim van Lommel. Drawing on meticulously recorded and hospital-verified cases, Dr. Charbonier explains that we should not fear death for ourselves or our loved ones. By releasing our fear of death, we can properly prepare for “the final journey.” As those who have returned from death reveal, death is simply a transition and its lessons enable us to live more fully, peacefully, and happily in the now.

Crossing the border into Liberia, they are seized by rebels and forced into military service. Birahima is given a Kalashnikov, minimal rations of food, a small supply of dope and a tiny wage. Fighting in a chaotic civil war alongside many other boys, Birahima sees death, torture, dismemberment and madness but somehow manages to retain his own sanity. Raw and unforgettable, despairing yet filled with laughter, Allah Is Not Obliged reveals the ways in which children's innocence and youth are compromised by war. From the Trade Paperback edition.
