    The author's limited view of Dr. Alexander's profound experience

    The author's limited view of Dr. Alexander's profound experience is solely based on a literal interpretation
    of what the author sees as the revealed word of God as stated in the Bible. Oddly enough, he brings nothing
    to the table but his own opinions as he tries in the most heavy-handed manner to attack a man who had an actual
    experience that changed his life. Was everything that Alexander experienced absolutely true? Was it a hallucination?
    We don't know. But it apparently was his experience which he shared. To condemn Alexander's experience merely
    because he used his own terminology based on his past experience and learning, is childish at best. As Alexnader
     indicated a number of times in his book, in the so-called realms he visited  (or state of mind- however you want to call
    it) words had and still have a limited meaning. Had Alexander been a priest or rabbi or buddhist monk the terms would
    be even different.
    The weakness of a literal interpretation of the Bible  is just what we see here. Creation either works exactly as the words
    we read and comprehend in today's consciousness or it doesn't. Thank God, creation is not as limited as too many think.
    Words are often the poorest substitute for even sharing personal experiences with loved ones. Imagine now we write about
    the meaning of God's intentions or in the case of Alexander, a death experience. The glory of a melding of  science and faith
    and a willingness to tred into areas that strike up fear and/or challenge our understanding is exactly a marriage that may 
    bring us all eventually to an understanding of the nature of consciousness and creation.
    But without charity and open-mindedness we are doomed as the Pharisees were doomed when they so feared the teachings
    of Christ that they tried to end his life. This ignorance that causes the deaths of or harm to great teachers, thinkers and imho,
    the Lord Himself has followed us through the centuries. King's book is no less an attack at something he fears and does not
    understand. Giordano Bruno, Galileo, Dr. Martin Luther King are only among the few who challenged our understanding of
    what life is-- and they suffered for it. Now much of what these martyrs preached is considered common knowledge.
    Were King someone who practiced the words of St. Paul, he might find a way to listen not just to the literal words, but
    also the deeper meaning of what Alexander was trying to share. "Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels,
    and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal." If more of us, regardless of our beliefs in God,
    or not, would entertain the differing thoughts and experiences of one another-- and get beyond our personal desires for
    the world to think as we do-- we might find more common ground as we all move closer to an understanding of what creation is.

    Amen

    Amen! Thank-you! I wasn't halfway through "proof of heaven" when I began to feel a need to pray for the author. I did finish the book hoping...but I was dissapointed. I was also bothered by his references to evolution. He calls God creator and uses the term "big bang" in the same sentance.

    Thank you Robert Alan King! I just finished reading Dr. Alexand

    Thank you Robert Alan King! I just finished reading Dr. Alexander's book. All I can say is that he visited heaven down under. I had two nights of hellish nightmares after reading his material before I went to bed. There is nothing heavenly in it. Nothing! To think that he would call my God 'ohm'. Isn't that a word used in meditation? Mr. Alexander must be running low on patients, if he has to make money in this manner -writing a fictitious book about the afterlife. And, if he had really listened to his NDS patient's experiences, he would realize how off base he is. There was nothing scriptural or Godly or lovely or encouraging or redeeming about his interpretation of heaven. It was just downright scary, dark and morbid. His story showed no redemption, grace or mercy. I love my father God and have no fear of dying, but if Dr. Alexander's interpretation and experience of heaven was the only one I had or heard, I would stay alive as long as I could.

    After reading this book I believe it was created with the intent

    After reading this book I believe it was created with the intent to pay for some medical bills. Refering to god as Om tells me that this is not the God of the bible. There is a god that is called Om under the Hindu religion. Most Christian NDE experiences have seen Jesus Christ while in heaven. As a follower of Jesus Christ I immediately felt a red flag pop up about 1/3 of the way thru the book by Alexander. Not recommended for true followers of Jesus Christ.

    So, this "book" gets three ot four five star reviews b

    So, this "book" gets three ot four five star reviews but the reviewers have strangely nothing to say about it, although a couple more did write a sentence or two attacking the original Proof of Heaven book. They had nightmares after reading it? really? Do these unethical people even try to explain WHAT was so offensive about it? No. Did they even bother reading the original book? Clearly not. Are they buddies of Mr. King, trying to up his dismal reviews? I'll let you be the judge of that.
