Overview

A pragmatic neurosurgeon escapes death and discovers truth in the afterworld.

Proof of Heaven ...in 30 minutes is the essential guide to quickly understanding Dr. Eben Alexander's life-altering journey into the afterlife, as told in his best-selling book, Proof of Heaven.

Understand the key ideas of Proof of Heaven in a fraction of the time, using this guide's:
• Concise synopsis, which examines the remarkable near-death experience recounted in Proof of Heaven
• In-depth analysis of Dr. Alexander's spiritual transformation, including the three fundamental truths revealed to him during his venture into the afterworld
• Insightful background on Dr. Alexander, a former associate professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School
• Extensive recommended reading list and bibliography

In Proof of Heaven, Dr. Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon with a deep scientific understanding of how the brain works, recollects his brush with death and the transformative spiritual journey that transpired during his seven-day coma. Though his neocortex, the part of the brain that's responsible for higher-level functions, was inactive the whole time, his conscious mind experienced rich spiritual realms that are recounted in great detail in Proof of Heaven.

Formerly an atheist, Alexander conveys his experiences with the Divine source of the universe, and shares the three essential truths he learned as a result of his near-death experience: God's gift is unconditional love, we are all intrinsically connected to an infinite universe, and belief is a powerful force for healing and happiness.

A remarkable story, Proof of Heaven recounts a neurosurgeon's journey into the afterlife and the life-changing answers he discovered along the way.

This book recounts and analyzes the experiences of Eben Alexander, was a neurosurgeon who fell into a serious coma and had an incredible spiritual experience.

    This brief review of Alexander¿s bombshell book has every reason

    This brief review of Alexander’s bombshell book has every reason to make you purchase the book itself. From high-minded, polarizing argument to down home anecdotes, there’s plenty to stimulate the brain and the soul. You’ll be wondering where you stand if you don’t already have a stance in the science versus faith theater of war. But one thing’s for sure, you’ll be thinking long and hard about life after death.

    Non-believers and believers alike will get something out of this

    Non-believers and believers alike will get something out of this guide to Dr. Eben Alexander’s Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife. It is a story about one man’s personal spiritual journey, but because Alexander is first and foremost a doctor and academic, I found the book was a great way to learn more about neuroscience too. If you read it, you won’t be disappointed!

    Proof of Heaven in 30 Minutes is a treat for those who don’t have time to read Eben Alexander’s Proof of Heaven. This expert review leads the reader through Alexander’s account with background information on Alexander, key words, and sections about the most important concepts within Alexander’s near death experience (NDE). After reading this short and concise overview of Proof of Heaven, I quickly wrote Proof of Heaven on my reading list.

    An atheist myself, I immediately question books which say there

    An atheist myself, I immediately question books which say there is an afterlife, and on top of that a being saw it and lived to tell. However, Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon, had quite an interesting account of such an event. After having a near death experience, Alexander was converted from complete atheist to committed believer in a cosmic ruler. In “Proof of Heaven in 30 minutes” you can read a shorter version of Alexander’s telling. The research into other NDE experiences proves that Eben Alenander’s journey was indeed a unique event. He reminds us that the part of the brain which can create hallucinations, was not truly functioning during his coma. Alexander believes now that we are all connected and the world is never-ending. He does not speak of an underworld or heaven, just a peaceful, gorgeous expanse, which is something an atheist, like me, can ponder.
