ASEMC Press announces the release of a new book featuring multiple near-death experiences throughout an epic lifetime search for truth outside of religious doctrine. The hows and whys of near-death experiences and the meaning of life are explored in a new autobiography that reviewers are describing as a spiritual adventure story.
ForeWord Reviews stated in their five-star review: “Nothing gets one’s attention like one’s imminent demise, writes Gene O’Neil in 'An Upraised Chalice,' a book that chronicles the remarkable travels, adventures, and near-death experiences that have marked his quest to discover the meaning of life. O’Neil’s practical insights, born of experience, cut across religious boundaries to convey a vibrant spirituality in plain, accessible language.”
The May Day release of this controversial book poses the question, “Do you consider yourself more spiritual than religious?” According to J. Mahon of ASEMC Press “Many have turned away from traditional, organized religions to explore their own relationship with the Divine. The author answers the question with his own intense story, while on a lifetime quest that takes him outside the realm of conventional religions. The scientific, real world background of the author who is among other things a family man, a builder as well as a flight instructor conveys a physically practical approach to living a spiritual lifestyle .”
Denis Ouellette, the editor of Natural Life News stated in his review, “Periodically a book comes along that is capable of changing people’s minds about Reality. The just-released “An Upraised Chalice” is one such book. It chronicles the world travels and the inner and outer experiences of the author that have marked his life, told in an engaging style, filled with pictures taken along the way, and ringing of the truth of experience. With other such books, such as Proof of Heaven” and “Heaven Is for Real” (now a movie), it seems the tide is turning for the mainstream’s acceptance of life after death.”
‘An Upraised Chalice – Adventures and Near-Death Encounters in My Search for the Brotherhood of Light and What It Can Mean for You ‘ ISBN 978-0-9912635-0-9 is now available around the world from Amazon and bookstores everywhere through Ingram's distribution network in both print and eBook formats.
