A new book on a fascinating subject is soon to be published by a “friend” of mine, Sam Cartwright, who has chronicled his near-death experience in A Faith in the Crowd. I came up with the title for him (and thought it rather clever if I do say so myself.) I also encouraged him to write this book, as he experienced a very non-traditional Heaven upon his arrival. Perhaps, Sam’s experience was shaped by the fact that he was an atheist, and while he still is technically, he has returned to this life as a much deeper spiritual person.
Sam is still not sure if his experience was real or manufactured from his subconscious. The subtitle for A Faith in the Crowd is One man’s journey to Heaven. Or not. Having read the manuscript, I’m not sure myself. If Sam’s experience was real, then I’m happy to say that there is both baseball and laughter in Heaven. I do know that real or not, the book will introduce you to an interesting cast of characters that includes Reverend Mr. Alfred J. Whitebucks, Methuselah, “The Boss,” his brother Myron, and Sam himself.
In any case, Sam is making it easy to decide for yourself, as he is listing the e-version of A Faith in the Crowd for free. I’ll pass along the link as soon as I finish helping him format the manuscript and uploading it to Amazon.
