A neurosurgeon’s first-person account of his near-death experience after an E. coli meningitis-related seizure and seven-day coma will reassure afterlife believers, though it is unlikely to convince skeptics. Alexander’s credentials are impressive: medical school at Duke and 15 years at Harvard-affiliated hospitals. But to agnostics and atheists, Alexander may not come across as a completely objective observer. He writes that he attended his Episcopal church even as he questioned how God, heaven, and an afterlife could exist, yet the heaven he describes seeing certainly seems like a biblical one; a typical line is, “the visual beauty of the silvery bodies of those scintillating beings above.” His story includes interesting asides about past struggles with alcohol and with adoption. (His birth mother delivered him when she was 16 and for years did not want to meet him.) But the book mostly focuses on religion. It ends with a request to support Eternea, Alexander’s nonprofit that has as its mission, “increasing global acceptance of the reality of our eternal spiritual existence . . . under an all-loving God.” For believers, not skeptics. --Karen Springen --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"Eben Alexander brings a unique perspective to the sacred world combining a glorious, personal vision of spiritual consciousness with patient, insightful scientific inquiry. "Proof of Heaven" is a compelling story of what may lie ahead for all of us in the life beyond this one. We have nothing to fear." --Allan J. Hamilton, MD, FACS, author of "The Scalpel and the Soul" and "Zen Mind, Zen Horse"
""Proof of Heaven" is more than just an awe-inspiring account of a profound encounter with spiritual reality. Dr. Alexander's neuroscience career taught him that near-death experiences are brain-based illusions, and yet his personal experience left him dumbstruck. His honest struggle to make sense of this unforgettable journey is a gripping story, unique in the literature of spiritual experiences, that may well change how we understand our role in the universe." --Bruce Greyson, MD, co-editor of "The Handbook of Near-Death Experiences: Thirty Years of Investigation"
"I can highly recommend this important book that has the potential to break many scientific taboos." --Dr. Pim van Lommel, cardiologist, author of "Consciousness Beyond Life: The Science of the Near-Death Experience"
"Dr. Eben Alexander's near-death experience is the most astounding I have heard in more than four decades of studying this phenomenon. [He] is living proof of an afterlife."--Raymond A. Moody, M.D., Ph.D., author of Life After Life
