PROOF OF HEAVEN: A Neurosurgeonís Journey into the Afterlife
Eben Alexander, M.D. Thousands of people have had near-death experiences, but scientists have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Alexander was one of those scientists. A highly trained neurosurgeon, he knew that NDEs felt real, but believed they were simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress. Then, his own brain was attacked by a rare illness. The part of the brain that controls thought and emotionóand in essence makes us humanóshut down completely. After seven days in a coma, he came back. He had 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. Alexanderís story is not a fantasy. Before he underwent his journey, he could not reconcile his knowledge of neuroscience with any belief in heaven, God, or the soul. 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. 6X9 P/B, 196 pp.
