Experiencer Tom Sawyer

Tom Sawyer was an avowed agnostic until his pickup truck fell on him and crushed his chest flat. He was clinically dead for 15 minutes, yet he came back to tell about his strange experience of going through a tunnel, meeting a “light that was God,” and being sent back to tell people about death and the unconditional love of God. He has talked about these subjects and shared his near-death experience on such shows as Phil Donahue, Oprah Winfrey, Unsolved Mysteries, and Good Morning America. His near-death experience, which took place in 1978, is recorded in his book, “What Tom Sawyer Learned From Dying.”

What Tom Sawyer learned

What Tom Sawyer Learned from Dying
By Sidney Saylor Farr, Tom Sawyer, Rev. Daniel J. Chesbro

Book Description:

Tom Sawyer is a former bicycle racer who had a near-death experience when a pickup truck fell on him, crushing his chest. He was clinically dead for 15 minutes, yet he came back to tell about his strange experience of going though a tunnel, meeting a “Light that was God”, and being sent back to tell people about death and the unconditional love of God. What makes Tom’s experience especially profound was what happened to him after the experience — how it affected his life, changed his personality and gave him abilities and knowledge that he could use in many ways. While he was alive (Tom died in April of 2007), he shared his near-death experience on such shows as Phil Donahue, Oprah Winfrey, Unsolved Mysteries, and Good Morning America.
