What a marvelous testimony of family, faith and miracles. That the author is the narrator makes this personal account all the more real. His intelligence and his sincerity are clear.
My prayer is that those who believe will be encouraged, and those who don't believe as they listen to the first chapter, will believe as they listen to the last.
I would listen to it again because the story is so intriguing. Eben's miraculous recovery and life events proceeding made it difficult to stop listening.
Dr. Alexander's background as a neurosurgeon and how he couldn't explain the journey away with science.
No. However, I thought he did an excellent job narrating the book.
Yes. I would end up sitting in my car in the garage after I came home listening to the end of a chapter.
I wish it was longer . I would like to hear more from him .
Yes, I would listen again. I loved the authors NC accent and his calm and collected voice.
As a total non-believer in religion, I was not likely to find this compelling. But the fact that Alexander is a scientist and was basically a non-believer too, made it totally believable.
I have recommended this book to at least 4 people.
The writer/reader was very charismatic, interesting and engaging. I was multi-tasking while listening so it was worth-while. The ending was disappointing because I had so many questions, but, of course, this subject has no definitive answers.
Very interesting book. I'm glad I bought the audio version because I think it would have been a difficult read for me because of all the medical terms used by the author.
Captivating, inspiring, enlightening
The story kept your attention and was thought provoking. Enlightening as well.
I didn't want to stop once I started- though I did. But I found extra time to listen. In my car and at home.
The NDE experiencer being a neurosurgeon of acclaim is probably one in a million. I gave it four stars only because the autobiographical aspect of the book was a little too much of the body of the book, not a reason anyone would have bought this title. His unique perspective on his experience would have been better filler than the details of his family. All in all, if you are at all interested in this topic, you will not be disappointed. Hope there is a follow up after he has fully digested the event and pursued the topic of NDE in its fullest.
One of the best -- unlike me, l'll listen again and again; there's a lot to absorb.
Universal, unconditional love. Hey that's more than a tidbit!
Great gift book to people you care about.
This was a wonderful story and I loved hearing about Eben's experiences. There were a few times where I thought he jumped around too much in the telling of his story.
