"Dr. Morse, what are near death experiences good for, anyway?"
This question, asked by a young patient, sent a curious medical doctor down a path of discovery to investigate the many aspects of this most intriguing subject.
Melvin Morse believes the answer to all these questions is yes. He presents his research in a clear and methodical book that sheds new light on the links between science and mysticism.
Where God Lives not only reveals the area of the brain that is our biological link to the universe, it shows us the secret of tapping into the universal energy to achieve healing, personal peace, and transcendence.In Where God Lives, Morse reveals his own experiences of the divine. By observing and interviewing hundreds of children who have had near death experiences, he was able to cure his own life-threatening disease with the spiritual lessons he learned.
Filled with moving case histories, Where God Lives applies the rigor of science to the study of the spiritual and concludes that here is an unseen-but not unreachable-power that guides us all.

Melvin Morse has co- written the bestsellers Closer to the Light and Transformed by the Light.
He is a practicing pediatrician in Seattle, Washington.
Paul Perry is an internationally bestselling author who has co-written nine books on near-death experiences.From Publishers Weekly:
Morse, a pediatrician who wrote with Perry the popular Closer to the Light and Transformed by the Light, offers what he believes to be a new understanding of spiritual experience, one that comes from his study of near-death experiences, or NDEs. His observation of hundreds of critically ill children who've survived NDEs leads him to conclude that these children are spiritually more settled than others: "They trust their intuitions and feel they can connect again with the divine presence they saw when they nearly died." Drawing on scientific evidence, Morse details how the right temporal lobe of the brain, or the "God spot," enables people to develop their sense of self and find greater fulfillment: "As one child who nearly died of bacterial meningitis described it, 'It's the light that told me who I was and where I was to go.'" The concludes that prayer would be the most likely means by which a well person could stimulate the right temporal lobe. Once a self-described mainstream-medical skeptic, Morse decides to test his theory ("I included in my prayer that I had to have the answer within a twenty-four-hour period. That way there would be a clear end point, and I wouldn't have to wonder if events during the next several days could be interpreted as God's answer to my question"). Though exuberant in sharing his beliefs, Morse also demonstrates the restraint of a veteran man of science, which will help to make his claims more convincing to those who consulted his earlier works.
