Imagine all the love you’ve experienced in your entire life, from parents, spouses, friends, family — and then multiply it by a thousand.

That’s the kind of love experienced by people who’ve had near-death experiences. They report being in the presence of God.

John Burke, the Texas-based bestselling author of “Imagine Heaven” and now the follow-up book, “Imagine the God of Heaven,” writes of the topic vividly.

Together with his wife, Kathy, of Gateway Church in Austin, he is also the president of Gateway Leadership Initiative (GLI), a nonprofit organization. He and his family live in Austin.

In an interview, Burke said he spoke with 70 “different people for ‘Imagine the God of Heaven’ — from every continent, every religious background. And yes, they encountered this God of light and love, but many of them also encountered Him as Jesus.”

NDEs, as they are known, are a scientifically recognized phenomenon that occur when people are clinically dead.

They’re “intensely vivid and often life-transforming experiences, many of which occur under extreme physiological conditions such as trauma, ceasing of brain activity, deep general anesthesia or cardiac arrest in which no awareness or sensory experiences should be possible according to the prevailing views in neuroscience,” according to the University of Virginia’s Division of Perceptual Studies.
