"For those of us looking for evidence that consciousness continues in some way beyond the point of death, then this new book by Josie Varga will provide much food for thought. Although most of the accounts of deathbed visitations, visions of angels and near-death experiences during the end stage of life are anecdotal (and, by definition, mostly offered from the point of view of the witnesses in the room with the dying person), taken together they form a reasonably compelling corpus of testimony. Indeed, the author makes a passionate plea towards the end of the book for Science to pay more attention to these events, which, when they occur, can have such a profound effect upon both the experiencer, and those who witness them."
"Josie Varga presents a superb look at deathbed visions, which are the glimpses of the afterlife reported by the dying. . . With each turn of the page you will find a treasure trove of insights and inspiration. This outstanding book is expertly written, remarkably easy to read, and enthusiastically recommended."
"Combining solid scientific and medical research with moving and emotional personal testimonials, A Call from Heaven offers undeniable evidence of what we may experience at and after death. This book educates, empowers and inspires us to look beyond our fears of the unknown to recognize that what we perceive as an ending can truly be a beginning..."
"I know that if I were to walk on the beach, there would be footprints in the sand as well--mine, God's and Josie's--because we are truly walking together in this life, avoiding landmines by being in the NOW, fully aware of our environment, and not taking anything for granted ever. Life is a gift that we should live fully--and this book is a gift that should be read completely. So continue reading, and savor Josie's life along with her. You will be glad you did. I know I was!"
“What impresses us most about Josie Varga is her passion for exploring the frontiers of consciousness in a determined and methodical way. Her latest book, A Call From Heaven, is an extraordinary compilation of personal accounts and high-caliber research into what is commonly known as deathbed phenomena. Josie's warm and welcoming personality makes her the perfect confidant for people with spiritually intimate events to share. The cumulative weight of these cases and the scientific inquiry that it inspires make a compelling case for the hypothesis that our consciousness and personal identities do not conclude with the death of our physical bodies. The stories are heartfelt and often nothing short of amazing. Reading this bold and poignant work leaves us solidly convinced that there is an eternal dimension to human life and a gorgeous horizon to which we can fearlessly proceed when our time on this earthly stage has drawn to a close.”
“Inspiring and healing." These two words sum up Josie Varga’s latest book, A Call from Heaven. If you ever thought that you were alone in your belief that we do truly get communication from the other side, then this book will put that to rest. Our loved ones do come to us and in ways that help us heal our broken hearts. Josie’s three previous books, Visits from Heaven, Visits to Heaven, and Divine Visits, are wonderful companions to this latest endeavor.
Thank you, Josie, for lighting the way for us!”
“Josie Varga’s new book, A Call From Heaven: Personal Accounts of Deathbed Visits, Angelic Visions, and Crossings to the Other Side reminds us that our consciousness continues after death. The stories of those close to death reveal the peace and grace that is present when we pass from this life. It does us good to hear these stories so we understand that we do not cease to exist when we cross over. Josie has included accounts of pre-death awareness from doctors, nurses, and many individual accounts as well as information from leading researchers in the field. I highly recommend this valuable and rewarding book.”
“Varga beautifully illustrates how ‘A Call from Heaven’ is a common experience that is transformative. Her wide-ranging stories of death bed visions and after death communication may well awaken the memory of such experiences in the readers’ minds and make them alert to future contact from deceased loved ones. Readers are likely to have a decreased fear of death through encountering incidences of survival of consciousness after death. For all of us, this understanding may well transform our world view through changing our ideas about the meaning of death in our lives.”
“Step into the pages of this beautifully written book and you will see why the stories are precious gifts from Heaven. Both informative and profoundly inspirational, Nancy Clark speaks to us in hushed and holy voices, and in warm and gentle tones. It is impossible not to be moved, often to tears. I love this book and would highly recommend it!”
