This book didn't add much new material relative to Alexander's first book Proof of Heaven. ( )

The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Proof of Heaven teams up with the sages of times past, modern scientists, and with ordinary people who have had profound spiritual experiences to show the reality of heaven and our true identities as spiritual beings. The Map of Heaven takes the broad view to reveal how modern science is on the verge of the most profound revolution in recorded history—all around the phenomenon of consciousness itself!

When Dr. Eben Alexander told the story of his near-death experience and his vivid journey to the other side, many readers wrote to say it resonated with them profoundly. Thanks to them, Dr. Alexander realized that sharing his story allowed people to rediscover what so many in ancient times knew: there is more to life, and the to the universe, than this single earthly life.

Dr. Alexander and his co-author Ptolemy Tompkins were surprised to see how often his readers’ visions of the afterlife synced up with each other and with those of the world’s spiritual leaders, as well as its philosophers and scientists. In The Map of Heaven, he shares the stories people have told him and shows how they are echoed both in the world’s faiths and in its latest scientific insights. It turns out there is much agreement, across time and terrain, about the journey of the soul and its survival beyond death.

In this book, Dr. Alexander makes the case for heaven as a genuine place, showing how we have forgotten, but are now at last remembering, who we really are and what our destiny truly is.

Really interesting second book from Eben A ... what I really loved the most was the copious, abundant book list of both in and out of print mysticism titles assembled by both authors. I've been slowly reading through these books and learning quite a lot! ( )

Very interesting book. It's a follow up to his book The Map of Heaven. As I have a good friend whose mother passed away in 2013 and had a VERY similar experience of death as shown in this book, I truly believe in the afterlife. Can't wait to discuss it at book club. ( )

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review.

This book is interesting. Not necessarily in the good way. I agree with most of what the author is saying, but the way he says it... He tends to take quotes or scientific facts, tells us about them, and then come up with a therefore that has little to do with the source. One example would be in his introduction when he basically says that gold was important to alchemists for its physical properties, therefore, we are both part of heaven and earth. I have nothing against either statement, I just can't see how he makes the jump in logic.

Likewise, he promises an appendix on how to reach these upper planes of understanding through meditation, but only writes about the importance of sound, without any specifics as to what sound works best.

I love the subject and the book has some very interesting examples and imagery, but it just doesn't mesh. ( )
