A Harvard-trained neurosurgeon's minute-by-minute account of his own near-death experience - and what he discovered in the heavenly realm beyond life.
On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed.
Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have functioned at all. That left only one conclusion: that we are conscious in spite of our brains - that, in fact, consciousness is at the root of all existence.
The evidence supporting Dr. Alexander's experience transformed him into a believer in God's unconditional love and brought reconciliation to his family - and will upend our ideas about human consciousness and spirituality.

"Dr. Eben Alexander's near-death experience is the most astounding I have heard in more than four decades of studying this phenomenon. In my opinion, Dr Alexander is living proof of an afterlife." (Raymond Moody, MD, PhD, author of Life Beyond Life)
"Eben Alexander brings a unique perspective to the sacred world combining a glorious, personal vision of spiritual consciousness with patient, insightful scientific inquiry. Proof of Heaven is a compelling story of what may lie ahead for all of us in the life beyond this one. We have nothing to fear." (Allan J. Hamilton, MD, FACS, author of The Scalpel and the Soul and Zen Mind, Zen Horse)
"I can highly recommend this important book that has the potential to break many scientific taboos." (Dr. Pim van Lommel, cardiologist, author of Consciousness Beyond Life: The Science of the Near-Death Experience)
It was not the most entertaining, but it was very thought provoking. it triggered several intense conversations among my family and friends.
my husband died three years ago and i found this book and the whole story to be believable and comforting.
I live in a remote area of Alaska. I read and listen to audio books. I am single and live with 3 dogs and 2 cats. I have a horse. I am 73
I have listened to this audio again, but probably will not listen to it again. The book spends too much time on issues that are not related to his experience.
I might recommend it to someone that has interests in the subject, but this is not a book that would appeal to many.
I don't think the author brings much to this.
I didn't have much reaction to the book. More information about his experience in Heaven would make this more interesting.
I guess from the reviews I was expecting more, but felt after listening, there wasn't the "more" I was expecting.
nothing I haven't read before.
it had to be proven to a dr at this time to get the word out to the medical comunity. The world is awakening and we can feel it everywhere. Dr Alexander was a skeptic who would not believe that the brain and the mind are seperate. This exsperience has opened the door to this not just for him but possibly other Doctors.
I would say sciencetists but Albert Einstein knew this many years ago and the Quantum physics proved we are not who and what we thought we were.
Dying to be me is a wonderful NDE book as well. Check it out here at audible its amazing
dying to be me
I told you so
love this new learning stuff. you do not need proof because you just know the truth when you here it.
This book confirmed in the deepest way what I didn't realize I already knew deep down inside. I am Beloved by God. His Presence is part of me. I was created to experience His Perfect Love. I can do nothing to separate myself from the Love of God. My eyes, my ears, my hands, my feet, my prayers are instruments God and I use to bring His Love to others.
I could not quit listening to the book. The story itself is compelling of what was happening to him on earth as much as what he experienced while his brain was not functioning.
This book will not be proof of God. To believe in God requires faith. This book will confirm people's faith in a powerful way.
Dr. Alexander shares a couple other people's experiences that were very moving and reminded me of when my own grandmother died.
By reading this book, I will never be the same again.
I liked his story, would have loved to hear more about the time when he was in a coma, but the book was articulated really well.
