A SCIENTIST’S CASE FOR THE AFTERLIFE Thousands of people have had near-death experiences, but scientists have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander was one of those scientists. A highly trained neurosurgeon, Alexander knew that NDEs feel real, but are simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress. Then, Dr. Alexander’s own brain was attacked by a rare illness. The part of the brain that controls thought and emotion—and in essence makes us human—shut down completely. For seven days he lay in a coma. Then, as his doctors
considered stopping treatment, Alexanderâ€™s eyes popped open. He had come back. Alexanderâ€™s recovery is a medical miracle. But the real miracle of his story lies elsewhere. While his body lay in coma, Alexander journeyed beyond this world and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of super-physical existence. There he met, and spoke with, the Divine source of the universe itself.
Reviews: Those who challenge Dr. Alexander's findings cannot disprove Dr. Alexander's experience now can they? To accept this account or challenge his statements of did he or didn't he is an individual belief. My NDE left me amazed, confused, and convinced, but I neither spoke of it nor read anything remotely related to NDEs until I read and listened to Proof of Heaven. Dr. Alexander's descriptive narrative brought to me validation of my own remarkable journey. With each reading and listen I have come to the same conclusion: I have experienced a very personal journey and life-changing event. It is a gift I embrace and treasure. The aftermath of my NDE has brought me knowledge, peace, and happiness, not fear. With each passing moment in my life, I give thanks for what was originally perceived as a near tragedy. I am forever grateful for my life event and memory of my journey. I am pleased to recommend the book/audiobook and CDs for Proof of Heaven.
I have been awaiting this book's publication for months and I just finished reading it, and couldn't get back to amazon to give my 5 stars. I am an avid reader, but this is my first comment on Amazon, the reasoning for this is that I fully want to support the message of this book. I am glad I can read a well written book on NDE from a direct experiencer who can intelligently explain this amazing phenomenon to simple folks like me. I am interested in spirituality, my place here on earth, and the mystery of the universal force, but I want to understand the truth from a spiritual and intellectual place without any materialistic religious dogma attached to it. NDE's like Dr. Eben Alexander do this for me. There is authenticity in his experience, you only have to watch his video on the Bioethics forum to see that (which got me interested in his book in the first place). Obviously reading a book can never be the same as experiencing the majesty of what he experienced, but
he encourages you to explore it on your own if you are invested in such an exploration. In critique of his book many (online publications) have focused sarcastically on the butterflies and orbs as angels, etc. To me descriptions like these point to the fact that he is stating his experience authentically as he experienced it, not as he should have to be more palatable to the so called "skeptics" and intellectual community. Reality of a blind person is different that the reality of a person who can see and experience the grandness of this earth. Similarly, Dr. Alexander has experienced another type of grand reality that is a real, but because most of the human population is "blind" to this reality (including me), we choose to deny its existence even when it's as real as earthly reality. And when someone like the author points to this reality, we choose to attack him and his body of work with sarcasm instead of authentic skepticism and inquiry. Simply, what I love about a book like this is that his experience is authenticating that neither the material reality (I believe it if I see it and prove it) espoused by the scientific community is 100% correct neither the religious bodies' materialspritualistic view (My way is the only way) correct. There is a third way which values both the temporal material existence of the body and timeless spiritual existence of the self, and this reality is personal as each NDEer experiences his own unique reality in this other realm. One-time read to grasp the concepts is not enough, I will be re-reading this book. I am appreciate Dr. Alexander's efforts to bring this book to us and the courage it takes to do so. I am glad the universe choose such a perfect subject for exploration of this truth and I am glad a major publication house picked it up to give it further credence. I can feel his struggle to explain what he experienced with limited language at his disposal, can you imagine reading a translated book or watching a foreign movie with subtitles - so much is lost in translation- that's why I appreciate this author's efforts. In my personal critique of the book, I have to say that discourse with God "Om" could have been explained in more detail- it leaves one wanting for more or not fully satisfied. More details were needed, as Dr. Alexander pointed out that much was explained to him in this realm- well that doesn't come forth in the book. So, I have agree with others who reviewed the book that it's "good but lacking". Also I
think the possible arguments listed at the end for why this was an NDE not a brain produced phenomenon, the book should have gone into it with supporting evidence to make it into a more complete case for NDE and put forth a good argument for the skeptics.
