This week on Breaking Battlegrounds, we are joined by Vinney Tolman, author of the incredible new book The Light After Death, based on his journey to heaven and back. Later in the show, Lincoln Shurtz joins us to shed some light on the United States’ plans to give tanks to the Ukrainian military.
In January 2003, Vincent Tolman was found dead in the bathroom of a small restaurant. He had been dead for over half an hour.
When paramedics arrived, they put him in a body bag and took him away. A rookie paramedic had a feeling to risk his career, break all protocols, and try to resuscitate Vincent. Miraculously, he restarted Vincent’s heart, and Vincent was in a coma for three days.
Vincent remembers what happened on the “other side” while he was dead, and he’s ready to share his experience.
The Light After Death is the incredible true story of how Vincent died, the lessons he learned, his visit to heaven, and how his experience has affected his life since then.
Read this inspiring story that provides a rare and detailed view of what awaits us all when our time on Earth is finished, and how to make the most of the time we have while still here.
Lincoln Shurtz has over two decades of experience advancing client priorities in both the public and private sectors.
Before starting Legislative Insight Consulting, Lincoln served for four years in active military service in the US Army as a tank commander.
The skills and political acumen he developed leading a platoon helped shape his career path, eventually leading him to the Utah League of Cities and Towns, where he became Director of Government Relations.
A bipartisan approach is part of what sets Legislative Insight apart from the rest. Relationships built on trust and experience provide more than partisan rhetoric.
