Proof of Heaven is the
compelling true life story of Eben Alexander's journey into the
unknown. Unlike other stories of the afterlife, Alexander's story
holds more credibility due to the fact that he is a Neurosurgeon who
not only critics his journey but questions what he experienced with
his medical knowledge. This book is bound to change the way that
science acknowledges the afterlife.
Following a E.Coli infection of the
brain, Alexander is thrust into a comatose state for nearly a week
due to being brain dead from the severity of the infection where he
experienced numerous spiritual spheres of the afterlife. This was
the crux of the book as while he was in a coma, his brain did not
have the capacity to create thought and the part of the brain that
makes us human wasn't functional. However when he awoke seven days,
he had vivid recollections of his entire experience.
Eben Alexander M.D.
Prior to writing the book he did not
research near death experiences or other peoples experiences and was
a true sceptic when patients discussed their own afterlife
experiences with him. However throughout this book, he wants to
change the face of neurology and assist neurologists in
understanding the afterlife and what patients face with a near death
experience. As everyone's journey is different, Alexander cannot
dismiss what he experienced nor others.
I enjoyed Alexander's writing as he was
very detailed in his description of the experience he had and
knowing that he was a sceptic changed my philosophies when I finally
finished this book. In the end, I would highly recommend
Proof of Heaven to believers and sceptics alike as he puts the
question out to his readers and colleagues that something really
exists beyond the world of flesh and blood.
