Betty J. Eadie, author, publisher, clinical hypnotherapist, distinguished NDE researcher, international speaker and lecturer—had the most eminent, outstanding and extensive near-death experience ever recorded. She has been referred to as the “Queen” of NDE’s and has written several books in an effort to share with others what she was shown on the “other side” in the spirit world about God and man’s existence, the meaning of life and what awaits all in the after life. For 20 years, Betty has given countless speaking events, lectures, radio and television appearances and interviews across America and abroad informing others that death need not be feared, the exquisite beauty of the spirit world, meeting Jesus and other great spiritual leaders, reuniting with deceased loved ones and the most important message of God’s unconditional love: that all are here to learn to “love one another.”
“People seem to have a hunger for spirituality,” Betty said during a press interview “Especially as the current state of our world today is frightening to many. Not everyone likes what my experience reveals, but everyone seems driven by an increasing desire for spiritual knowledge."
Embraced By The Light met with instant success upon its release. The book's first printing of 20,000 copies sold out within two weeks and its second printing of 30,000 copies sold just as fast. Successive printings drew a similar response and soon Embraced By The Light was headed to the top of the New York Times Bestseller List—something unheard of previously for a first time author or a first time publisher. People who read Embraced By The Light were so touched by it, they purchased multiple copies for family and friends. In less than a year, Betty's book sold one million copies and in September, 1993, after 17 weeks climbing the charts, Embraced By The Light reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. It stayed there for a record 78 weeks and became the 5th bestselling book of the entire decade.
Today, Embraced By The Light has been published in over 130 countries and has been translated into over 38 languages, and is an internationally remarkable book in that it held the number one position in many countries simultaneously. Readers all over the world have been touched by its story, and lives have been changed for good.
Betty, after having the most profound and detailed near-death experience recorded, gives credit only to God. “He gave me this near-death experience. It's he who touches people as they read Embraced By The Light, not me. He touches each person differently as they read because he loves us and knows us perfectly. I'm amazed and humbled to see how much love and hope he has given to so many through this one, simple book.”
