Yes!!! I highly recommend this audiobook!! This book is awesome!! It explains so much of what I witnessed just days before my dad passed away! Thank you, Dr. Alexander for sharing your story!!!!
When I came out of coma, I had memories of s surreal, but not really surreal experience. My family thought I was nuts, but it seemed real and connected cry much to God. The communication between God and myself was seamless. It was like I was on a narrated journey in which I was a on a Farrus wheel observing the worlds. I saw my world of ease, and I saw the suffering of others in poor countries. Overall, I could understand the love of God.
I only have two minor things that I could possibly ask for; a little less repetition, and a little more story around the afterlife experience. To be honest these really aren't fair criticisms. The repetition admittedly helps drive many important learning points home, and don't we all want to hear as much detail as we can about what it's really like on the other side?
I bought the digital book, then got even more out of this unabridged audio version. I'm downloading his next book now. Thank you, Eben, for sharing this with us.
There was some very good information in this book and I would review it without exception, if I had more time. I'll keep it in my library to listen again someday.
Dr. Alexander's personal story was compelling. His experience was interesting and I wish he would have found a way to go into more detail. However words are limiting.
My favorite scene is when he identified the girl he had encountered.
I would have preferred to listen to this in one setting, but I don't have 6+ hours do so so. It might have flowed a bit better.
The book seemed to jump around a bit in terms of past, present, and his experience in heaven. Sometimes when I went back to it, I thought I might have missed something because of this. The flow was a wee bit off.
In addition, there were comments that might have "politicized" spirituality. I listen to these books to remove myself from government garbage and propaganda. Climate change, global warming, devastating problems of today, etc is nonsense. Humans have it better than they ever have on earth. Global warming is so inaccurate they've had to change the name of their propaganda three times since the 1970s.
I understand why Christians might take issue with this because it seemed to me that he had a bone to pick with that religion. Frequently he put it low on the list of ideologies, in a political correct way. He could call God "Bob" for all I care. I'm not so attached to Christian ideology as some people. Yet I don't change facts to fit my narrative. Dr. Alexander was easy to spot as a progressive with very limited understanding of history or science outside of his field. Christianity is the first religion that abolished slavery and stopped treating women as livestock,
I'm not questioning his experience and I am sincerely grateful that he shared it.
I hesitate to read his second book because I don't care to listen to or support someone with such strong ideology that it sweeps through the pages of a book on spirituality. When left or right political propaganda makes its way into the pages of a book about life, death and heaven I start questioning the writer. I've watched many videos with Dr. Alexander and he came locally to speak, which I attended. This is why I purchased the book. The same things I take issue with in the book are presented in his speeches, but when it's free, it's not worth mentioning. When I have to pay for it, it's another story completely.
The author's sincerely in his reading and his own scientific background.
His need to share what he'd experienced.
I'm already a believer, so no extreme reactions. I do think his explanations are some of the clearest I've read.
For those still curious, try Many Masters, Many Lives.
