TheLight_cover_v9.inddJudith T. Lambert was named the winner in the Near Death Experience category in the first annual International Excellence Body, Mind, Spirit Book Award Contest on March 17, 2017. This impressive honor was given for her book, The Light: A Modern-Day Journey for Peace that is currently being distributed by New Leaf Distributing Company.

This inaugural BMS juried contest celebrates writing quality, professionalism, and presentation. Winners in all categories are exemplary additions to the growing compendium of Body, Mind, and Spirit literature.

The Light: A Modern-Day Journey for Peace draws upon Judith Lambert’s personal experiences. This groundbreaking book was written as a guide for those seeking to understand other religions and folds the near death experience under a larger umbrella. A Modern-Day Journey for Peace moves us to consider if the Light of the near-death experience isn’t actually the bedrock of religion and the springboard for a universal connection. The essence of God becomes globally and tangibly defined and uncovers our prevailing spiritual unity despite our world’s seemingly different beliefs. Ultimately, there is a powerful spiritual bond we have with one another. Gods and the names for God have changed in every era, yet one dynamic remains constant—the Light.

Religion’s common denominator. . .

The Light

God does not have a religion.

God does not speak a language.

God does not have a culture.

It is we who require these things.
