Product Description

Review

“Dr. Eben Alexander’s near-death experience is the most astounding I have heard in more than four decades of studying this phenomenon. [He] is living proof of an afterlife.” (Raymond A. Moody, M.D., Ph.D., author of Life After 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

Proof of Heaven is more than just an awe-inspiring account of a profound encounter with spiritual reality. Dr. Alexander’s neuroscience career taught him that near-death experiences are brain-based illusions, and yet his personal experience left him dumbstruck. His honest struggle to make sense of this unforgettable journey is a gripping story, unique in the literature of spiritual experiences, that may well change how we understand our role in the universe.” —Bruce Greyson, MD, co-editor of The Handbook of Near-Death Experiences: Thirty Years of Investigation --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

This is a fascinating account of an NDE by a neurosurgeon. The first half of the book is about the event itself with historical and family background to help the reader understand his perspective. The second half is a summation of what he learned from the event with recommendations for the reader to explore the subject as well. He communicates well a subject that must be very difficult to relay. Truly moving and thought provoking. He leaves the religious questions out of the picture and up to the reader to decide, however, espousing the refreshing viewpoint that we are all loved equally by the Creator. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, well worth the price. Amazon.ca delivered on time!

A trusted friend recommended this book, and he is never wrong... This book is amazing... I must admit I haven't been drawn to NDE books; there are so many on the market right now, but this one is different. Understanding the complexities of the brain and journeying with the Doctor through his coma was facinating to say the least. If you read one NDE (near death experience) book, read this one!!! You will not be disappointed!!!!!!!

Let me start by saying that my blog post on June 13/2013 is related to Dr. Alexander's recent talk in Vancouver, BC, and adds a little more depth to his experience. As for the book itself, it has been quite some time since I started and finished a book on the same day. I quite enjoyed Eben's writing style in that he explained his situation in a way that people who are not scientists or in the medical profession can relate to. I think one of the greatest challenges for any person who has undergone such a deep personal experience, in this case an NDE, is the difficulty in finding words that can describe the experience.

I think another challenge that people who experience NDE’s have to deal with is the skepticism of people when they return. The fact that Eben is a neurosurgeon who did not believe in the possibility of these events, prior to his own experience, goes a long way in adding to the validity of his subsequent revelations. If you are looking for irrefutable proof that there is life after death, you might not find it here; however, that being said, I don’t think any one book can do that. Eben’s experience is one more unique and profound event that contributes a great deal to the study of NDE’s. Furthermore, the massive resource list at the end of the book provides you with numerous other books and references to help you unravel the mysteries of life after death.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have read quite a few NDE books and this was a bit better than the rest. The fact that it involved a neurosurgeon who had originally dismissed NDEs in others, because he "knew" they were bogus, makes it more interesting. And I enjoyed and agreed with his conclusions that there is much more to our human consciousness than we normally think there is.
But I was a bit disappointed that, despite having been in the coma for seven days, Dr. Eben Alexander didn't describe very much of that experience. Instead he dwells more on what was going on with the family around him.
This is a very interesting NDE and I'm hoping that he considers writing a second book that ties his experiences in the coma to his revised belief system. It also appears that Dr. Alexander is working with Robert Monroe (which is good), but I hope Eben keeps lessons learned in that environment separate from the NDE lessons - ie. identify where they come from. They may be the same lessons but I want to know their source.
A good book. Thank you!

This book had a profound effect on me. It left me smiling and reassured that the reality that we experience is neither the beginning nor the end of our consciousness. Parts of the book had me close to tears of joyful understanding. If it had been written by less a person and renowned than this highly skilled neurosurgeon, I might have stopped reading with a sigh, thinking that this was just another NDE book that proved nothing. As a scientist who thought he understood consciousness and how the brain controls it, his story with its conclusions left me believing that he is on to something as big as the universe itself. A truly worthwhile read. Do yourself a big favor!

This was an interesting account of a near death experience, given greater credibility by the fact that it was written by a neurosurgeon. His recollections I thought lacked clarity and needed further detail. Admittedly, it must have been profoundly difficult to make sense of the impressions he encountered in his suspended state. His discovery of the continuity of consciousness after death was perhaps the most interesting revelation and conforms with what some modern theologians have also suggested. It was a good read but not the compelling one that I had expected.

I experienced a Near Death Experience 4 years ago when I suffered an anaphylactic shock from a medication. I was "clinically dead" for 12 mins. Dr. Alexander's book was extremely helpful in helping to validate some of my experience & also in helping to expand on some of the science and medical knowledge that I needed to provide a fuller understanding of my own experience. I'm a Nurse Practitioner, so I especially appreciated his physiological & neurological explanations, as well as (& primarily) the NDE exploration. Although my own experience differed in some ways from Dr. Alexander's, particularly in the length of time he was "gone", there were many strong similarities between my NDE and his. And the validation he provided was very affirming to me. As a science-based individual & professional, I too had struggled with many of the questions he brings up, yet the very deep "knowing" of the actual experience is irrefutable. Although I've read many other books on the subject since my own "death", this book, Proof of Heaven, is the most accurate, explanatory & deeply resonating one that I've seen. I am deeply appreciative that Dr. Alexander had both the courage & the drive to write & share his experience with everyone.
