"A SCIENTIST'S CASE FOR THE AFTERLIFE Near-death experiences, or NDEs, are controversial. Thousands of people have had them, but many in the scientific community have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander was one of those people. A highly trained neurosurgeon who had operated on thousands of brains in the course of his career, Alexander knew that what people of faith call the "soul" is really a product of brain chemistry. NDEs, he would have been the first to explain, might feel real to the people having them, but in truth they are simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress. Then came the day when Dr. Alexander's own brain was attacked by an extremely rare illness. The part of the brain that controls thought and emotion--and in essence makes us human-- shut down completely. For seven days Alexander lay in a hospital bed in a deep coma. Then, as his doctors weighed the possibility of stopping treatment, Alexander's eyes popped open. He had come back. Alexander's recovery is by all accounts 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. This story sounds like the wild and wonderful imaginings of a skilled fantasy writer. But it is not fantasy. Before Alexander underwent his journey, he could not reconcile his knowledge of neuroscience with any belief in heaven, God, or the soul. That difficulty with belief created an empty space that no professional triumph could erase. Today he is a doctor who believes that true health can be achieved only when we realize that God and the soul are real and that death is not the end of personal existence but only a transition. This story would be remarkable no matter who it happened to. That it happened to Dr. Alexander makes it revolutionary. No scientist or person of faith will be able to ignore it. Reading it will change your life"--"Near-death experiences are controversial. Thousands of people have had them, but many in the scientific community have argued that they are impossible.

  1. 01
    La Mort : una aurora de Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (SqueakyChu)
    SqueakyChu: This book is by a doctor whose views about life after death have had remarkable effects on the nursing care of dying patients. A very worthwhile read.

This book was both super scientific and extremely beautiful. ( )

Very interesting. Sincere. A little new-agey. Don't understand his eternia.org stuff and what he is trying to do there. ( )

I thought this was a wonderful story but alas it was somewhat lacking in the proof area. ( )

First and foremost, Dr. Eban Alexander, was a top-notch neurosurgeon. He heard patients talk of NDE (near death experiences), but listened and filed it away to disbelief. Until, he developed an extremely rare and virulent E.Coli infection in his brain. In a coma, he was unresponsive. While his co-workers tried to keep him alive, each day he slipped more toward death.

When the family was told there was no hope, miraculously, he came alive.
This is his story of experiences while in a deep coma. Witnessing a guardian angel, he felt safe, until he felt and saw what he though an worms eye view of much, danger and blackness. He was also propelled out of this horror to a safe space, of watching children, animals and happiness abounding.

While at times I thought his writing style was too pedantic and scientific, in the end, I found this a fascinating book.

Dr. Eban Alexander became a near-death experience believer after he, himself was taken downward, and then lifted in the light by his winged helper.

We talk about his past life and his present one, and about the strange voyage that divided the two. We talk about some of the stories he tells in Proof of Heaven, which has sold nearly two million copies and remains near the top of the New York Times best-seller list nearly a year after its release. We also talk about some of the stories you won't find in the book, stories I've heard from current and former friends and colleagues, and stories I've pulled from court documents and medical-board complaints, stories that in some cases give an entirely new context to the stories in the book, and in other cases simply contradict them.

The message had three parts, and if I had to translate them into earthly language, I'd say that they ran something like this:
"You are loved and cherished, dearly, forever."
"You have nothing to fear."
"There is nothing you can do wrong."
