For most of his life, John Creed never gave much thought to an afterlife.

That all changed the day he died.

He'd been clinically dead for ten minutes. At least, that's what the doctors told him when he woke up in intensive care. It had been a freak accident, they said. A school bus suddenly turned in front of his red convertible, smashing it to bits.

By all odds, that should have been it. John's injuries had been grave. His heart had stopped and been restarted. He'd flatlined. His brain showed no signs of activity. Only sheer stubbornness kept the doctors from pulling the plug. Then, days later, he suddenly, mysteriously woke up - confused, in pain, but very much alive.

At first, he didn't remember much of what had happened. But then, the dreams began ...

The accident itself, in vivid, second-by-second detail. The face of the woman who had been driving the bus - a face twisted with pure hatred.

The long hours in the trauma center, as he hovered over his own shattered body, watching the doctors desperately laboring to bring him back.

And the light - a faint but steadily growing glow at the end of a swirling vortex. A brilliant incandescence filled with joy, love, peace that beckoned him closer...

But there were other dreams as well...

A frightened, heartbroken boy from a desperately troubled family running for his life.

A pretty, red-haired woman whose life was crashing around her, tempted to end it all.

An embittered, broken man whose heart smoldered with despair, hatred, and murderous rage.

These lives were somehow intertwined with his own, in a way he did not fully understand.

With the visions, John Creed received a remarkable gift. He could share the pain of other souls, take their suffering and transform it into peace. But this same gift also opened him to darker forces. Forces which could shift the balance between good and evil for ages to come....

Exciting, suspenseful, moving, and inspirational PARTING THE VEIL is a powerful testament to faith, hope, and the triumphant human spirit.

The Light at the End of the Tunnel


Life is a hit-and-run driver that smashes, upends, uproots, and confuses before moving on with seeming indifference. It is an act of terror that in one dark moment reshapes...
