For anyone who is interested there was a 30 minute discussion on NDEs featured on today’s BBC Radio 4 Beyond Belief show. Participants in the discussion were Professor Chris French, The Very Revd Prof Dr Gordon McPhate (who had an NDE when he was a medical student) and Dr Penny Sartori.
Gordon’s experience is particularly interesting to me as it occurred while he was a medical student and reflection of his NDE over time prompted him to train in the ministry.
You can also listen to the programme again on http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/programmes/a-z/by/Beyond%20Belief/current, the episode will also be available for download by podcast after transmission.
P.S. – there may be a delay in my response to any comments for a few weeks but I will respond as soon as possible.
