Raymond Moody received his BA, MA, and PhD from the University of Virginia. After teaching philosophy at East Carolina University, he received his MD from the Medical College of Georgia in 1976 and then served his residency at the University of Virginia Medical School. His works include Life After Life, Reflections on Life After Life, and The Light Beyond. Paul Perry is the co-author of several New York Times bestsellers, including Closer to the Light, Transformed by the Light, and Saved by the Light, which was made into a popular movie by Fox TV. His books have been published in more than thirty languages around the world. In 1986 Perry's interest in the effects and meaning of near-death experiences led to a professional involvement with Dr. Raymond Moody, considered to be the founder of near-death studies. The two have written five books together--Paranormal, Glimpses of Eternity, The Light Beyond, Coming Back, and Reunions.
