Saved by the Light
Saved by the Light (Villard Books, 1994, Harper Torch 1995 ISBN 0-06-100889-3) is a book by Dannion Brinkley describing his near-death experience (NDE). It is co-authored by Paul Perry. Brinkley was struck by lightning and was clinically dead for approximately twenty-eight minutes. Upon reviving, he told a tale of a dark tunnel, a crystal city, and a "cathedral of knowledge" where thirteen angels shared with him over a hundred revelations about the future, some of which he claims come true. The claims made have subsequently been challenged.
Within two weeks of publication, another 5000 copies were printed. The book was on The New York Times' bestseller charts for over 25 weeks.
