Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Near-Death Experience and Journey into the Afterlife | [Eben Alexander]

Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Near-Death Experience and Journey into the Afterlife

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    Story
    "NDE finallly made credible by noted neurosurgeon"
    Where does Proof of Heaven rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was not the most entertaining, but it was very thought provoking. it triggered several intense conversations among my family and friends.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    my husband died three years ago and i found this book and the whole story to be believable and comforting.

    Story
    "Interesting story"
    Would you listen to Proof of Heaven again? Why?

    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.


    Would you recommend Proof of Heaven to your friends? Why or why not?

    I might recommend it to someone that has interests in the subject, but this is not a book that would appeal to many.


    What does Eben Alexander bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't think the author brings much to this.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't have much reaction to the book. More information about his experience in Heaven would make this more interesting.

    Probably not.

    Story
    "it had to happen to him."
    If you could sum up Proof of Heaven in three words, what would they be?

    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


    What other book might you compare Proof of Heaven to and why?

    dying to be me


    If you could give Proof of Heaven a new subtitle, what would it be?

    I told you so


    Any additional comments?

    love this new learning stuff. you do not need proof because you just know the truth when you here it.

    Story
    "Enthralled"
    What did you love best about Proof of Heaven?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Dr. Alexander shares a couple other people's experiences that were very moving and reminded me of when my own grandmother died.


    Any additional comments?

    By reading this book, I will never be the same again.

    "Its really good"
    Where does Proof of Heaven rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.
