Happily married since 1977, Steve and Vicky Long have partnered together in various venues such as: team teachers; co-Directors of New Life Drug Rehabilitation Center; co-Directors of Food for the Hungry - providing food for 1400 refugee families per week in Long Beach, California; and currently working as club advisors with international students and visiting scholars at Stanford University.
Probably due to a stressful work schedule, Dr. Long recently experienced a cardiac arrest that led to a near-death experience. Fortunately, this negative turned out to be positive, because it provided him with great insights into the spiritual realms that are beyond this physical world. Since that pivotal point in his life, Dr. Long has researched around 1,500 sources of NDEs and out-of-body experiences, and has become an experiential and well-death expert in this intriguing and important field of study. Many of his findings are included in the book offered on this website. His hope is that those visiting this website, and reading his book, will be convinced of the true path that leads to eternal life.
