I believe the presentation of what happened to Dr. Anderson is accurate truthful, and very interesting. The last chapter, however, seems to be his interpretation of the events he experienced during his NDE. To me, he does not appear to be a Bible believing Christian. This being said, if he was a Spirit filled Christian, I think some of his interpretation of what he experienced would be different.
Many good books are a "once and done" type read Eben Alexander's Proof of Heaven is a book you can read over and over I've read through it at least eight or nine times just for the feeling of inspiration that it delivers and the great listen ability from the narrator Eben self.
if you're happy and you know it....
I wasn't sure what I was expecting from this. I was immediately fascinated that this happened to and was written by a neurosurgeon. I appreciated his candor. But, I don't know that what he described necessarily should've been called "heaven'---rather, perhaps, "Afterlife.". It is a description I believe can reach a broader and more agnostic/questioning audience, as well as the medical community itself. Having said all that that I still believe his perspective is and will be groundbreaking for future near death-experience-"ees".
From a scientific basis and first hand experience, Eben Alexander does a good job explaining the connection many people have been making seemingly more and more lately of quantum physics and spirituality, as well as their connections to the originations of all faiths. If i could meet Dr. Alexander I would be compelled to see if he was interested in ayahuasca, DMT, or sensory deprivation to compare his experiences. It's further noble of him to express what most people who have experienced deeper realities have realized, that words are far more limited than we realize in communicating our experiences. His end message is a noble cause that with his background in science and personal experience should convince at least a good number of people who haven't yet seen the deeper truths of reality that the likes of Jesus, Buddha, and Einstein all refer to.
very interested in subject but felt author rambled on and on that I lost my interest. Wanted to give it a chance but after several attempts, I had had it!
His adventurers into heaven are so real . I've listened to The Map of Heaven the most .I believe authors who read their on books is t best. I hope He rights and reads some more.
I just finished this remarkable book and have to say it genuinely fascinated me from beginning to end. I have been on a journey studying experiences of NDEs, reincarnation, and other stories of spiritual and psychic enlightenment. This book far surpassed my expectations because of its wonderfully personal and human portrayals. Looking forward to reading Dr Alexander's other books.
