By Eben Alexander
Proof of Heaven is one man’s story of a near-death experience. Eben Alexander is suddenly and inexplicably struck with a rare brain disease. While in a coma for seven days, Alexander explains that he was beyond this world and spoke with the Divine. Scientists have argued that these experiences are impossible and have cited numerous theories that explain how the brain creates fantasies under extreme stress. What is remarkable about Eben Alexander is that he was one of those scientists, a highly trained neurosurgeon for over 25 years.
Alexander explores his experience with patience and insight. His story is one for believers and skeptics. Read this book with a curious mind. It will gently lead you beyond your boundaries, even beyond our current understanding of science and religion.
