From a religious skeptic to a believer, Dr.Lee Baumann now writes books defending God and spirituality, based upon world wide descriptions of God and the scientific findings of physical Light. His research has lead him to investigate near-death experiences. He finds similarities of those who see God surrounded with light which is welcoming, intelligent, and loving to science and physics that suggest light is omnipresent (everywhere), omniscient (all-knowing), omnipotent, and conscious. He discusses the findings of light's peculiar quantum nature, including the cessation of time. Dr. Lee Baumann does a great job of presenting the evidence that God exists through scientific explanations.
"Valuable for anyone interested in theology, physics, or both. Dr. Baumann's book is cogently written, with excellent endnotes/references for all chapters. The author convincingly and eruditely presents how quantum physics (among other areas of modern science) supports many spiritual beliefs/concepts pertaining to the afterlife, nature of the universe, multiple dimensions, etc. Likewise, he challenges our ideas of what we might conventionally perceive as "reality" with various plausible theories of existance based on the latest revelations in quantum mechanics, cosmology, the natural sciences, etc".- A review
"Worthwhile read. I found the first half a little heavy in the physics and sometimes hard to follow, but the bottom line was always readily apparent. The second half was particularly worthwhile. It does make one think about light, Schroeder's theories and how scientists truly are at a loss to explain it's quirky behavior and ubiquitous presence".- Review By Dr Geoffrey Simmons
"I had been looking for a book that specifically corelated the scientific structure and nature of light with spirituality. This book did just that. Don't expect an intensely dry scientific, deeply scholarly approach. The book is fairly simple and to the point, but it makes it's point in a clear, readable, straightforward way. By addressing near death experiences, quantum studies of light, and the cosmological anthropic principle Baumann makes a case for the existence of God, spirituality, and its immanent proximity to our experience. He does a little Biblical apologetics that is OK, but a tad fundamental for me. Overall I genuinely enjoyed and appreciated this book and would strongly recommend it to those looking into this subject". - Review of By Bill Groves

"The book is about the melding of science and spirituality. He argues for the belief that 'near death experiences' are for real. To get across his point he mentions Einstein's theory of relativity, quantum theory and other scientific evidences to prove his point. The speed of light plays a major part in all of this. The Big Bang is discussed along with magnetic wave lengths. He is very convincing in his presentation. However, I'm am still somewhat skeptical.
Long before 'Near Death Experiences' came to be talked about, I had a similar experience. I was anywhere between the ages of 2-years and 6-years old, which would be back in the late 1930's or very early 1940's. I know that I was in a car accident and that I had a bad experience with ether when I had my tonsils taken out which could have prompted my near death experience.Anyway, over the years I recall this experience once in awhile. There was this tunnel that was narrow at one end and became wider as you approached a magnificent glowing of light and then I saw Jesus who was surrounded by angels (no they did not have wings), at least I presumed they were angels. As I drew nearer the presence of Jesus, He asked me if I wanted to stay. He told me that if I returned my life would be very difficult I told him that I could survive the difficulty and would like to return. So here I am. By the way, even though I was just a child, in the presence of Jesus I talked and understood as an adult. Then over the years I started debating this with myself. He did not tell me that I had to return, He asked me if I wanted to return. Having told me that my life would be difficult, I have reasoned that by answering Him that I wanted to return, I was being arrogant and prideful. That has bothered me. Yet I'm still skeptical that it was an actual experience, and just not my brain putting these thoughts in my head while dying. Then I think, why the question from Jesus, if it was just my brain playing tricks. Eventually I will know the truth.The author is very persuasive in his presentation of near death experiences being true and claims that these people enter one of the dimensions that are not available to us humans otherwise.
