This book called to my spirit, as I was flying home to my grandmother' s funeral. I couldn't put it down. Something really a coincidence, I just had cervical surgery one week prior (performed by a neurosurgeon) .
I was adopted too so I could identify with Eben's feelings about that.
when he realized he had seen his dead sister.
This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. Incredibly moving, very thought-provoking, and an awesome listen. Very well produced audiobook! I love it when the author reads their own writing, and Mr. Alexander conveys his story with genuineness and joyful energy.
Servant of the poor
Dr. Alexander's desire to share his most intimate thoughts about his life experiences.
When he spoke of the realization that it was his sister who spoke to him from the wings of a butterfly.
Throughout the book Dr. Alexander communicated a sense of mission and purpose; to share his near death experience with others so that they might find hope in this life and love in the afterlife.
One does not have to agree with the author's theological conclusions in this book to make the reading/listening of it be meaningful. It is a rare quality to "see" such conviction on the subject matter presented in such a personal, yet scientific way; AND written with a great deal of love. Great book. Thank you Dr. Alexander. Keep on keeping on. :-)
The author did his own narration. He was very good! I enjoyed his medical approach to what happened and felt the compelling series of events that was unique to his situation. The story could have been very boring and too medical, but that never happened, His explanation of events and situations in his life were really honest and good. A very uplifting book.
This is a good title.
His reading voice was fine, which goes a long way with me, but the story did not deliver what the title implied. Most of the book is about his illness and the drama with his family. The NDE and crossing over seemed incidental and only casually mentioned. I sort of doubted his credibility when I purchased the book but I wanted to give it a chance. Now I feel a little duped and won't waste my time/money on anything further he has to say/write.
