Default NEED HELP debunking "Embraced by the Light"

Help, Please. I need a Catholic response (in layman's terms) to Betty Eadie's Embraced by the Light. I have a friend who is being taken in by this junk, and I can't find any critiques of the book anywhere and I haven't time to read it myself.

Thanks!

See these two articles from the CHRISTIAN RESEARCH INSTITUTE:
DECEIVED BY THE LIGHT:
A Christian Response to "Embraced by the Light"

by Douglas Groothuis

Review of Embraced by the Light

And this book:

Thank you for these resources, but I had no trouble finding these. What I need is a CATHOLIC response to this text. I haven't been able to find anything Catholic.

Maybe you don't need a specifically Catholic response. The Christian responses as given in the recommended links seems to cover the material presented in 'Embraced by the Light' . You would only need a Catholic response if the matter dealt with specifically Catholic matters.

Not sure how much this will help you, but the book Raised From the Read, written by a Catholic priest, has a good chapter on how Catholics should view NDE's--specifically those in books like Life after Life.

I doubt that there is a Catholic response. If there is it will most likely be from someone associated with CCR - maybe you could approach them?

G'day CredoDownunder,

I'm from Chirnside Park; am a former SSPXer of 23 years duration, and now attend the old Sacred Heart Monastery at Croydon where there are three great priests, Frs. Peter Ray, Anthony Denton and newly ordained Fr. Paul Pavlou.
