Dr. Robert Schaffer, a Miami physician, is involved in a fatal two-car accident.He receives no injuries but, for some reason, suddenly suffers a "code blue" while being treated at a hospital. It is at the critical moment when he flat-lines that a golden glow surrounds his body and an unusual, foreign-sounding voice speaks from his mouth.

Bob's wife is referred to a foreign language professor at the local university. With the woman's help, and that of an expert in hypnosis, Dr. Schaffer is sent back through time to undergo a past-life experience. Where will his travels end? Who will select this mild-mannered, easy-going pediatrician to be their conduit for "crossing over the rainbow bridge" that spans the ages from the distant past to the present? Questions are asked and answered during two hypnotic sessions. Those in attendance are shocked when the professor suddenly cries out, "It's Him! It's Him!" and declares the aura and voice belong to one special and unique soul, that of Jesus Christ, Himself.

This is what you will discover in "It's Him!" an inspirational, spiritual but non-religious novel.
