Saved by the Light (Villard Books, 1994, Harper Torch 1995 ISBN 0-06-100889-3) is a book by Dannion Brinkley describing his near-death experience (NDE). It is co-authored by Paul Perry. Brinkley was struck by lightning and was clinically dead for approximately twenty-eight minutes. Upon reviving, he told a tale of a dark tunnel, a crystal city, and a "cathedral of knowledge" where thirteen angels shared with him over a hundred revelations about the future, some of which he claims come true. The claims made have subsequently been challenged.[1]

Within two weeks of publication, another 5000 copies were printed.[2] The book was on The New York Times' bestseller charts for over 25 weeks.[3]

The book was adapted for a 1995 FOX TV film of the same name starring Eric Roberts. Since originally airing, it has been in regular circulation on the Lifetime television network.
