PROOF OF HEAVEN BY EBEN ALEXANDER, MD
A NEUROSURGEON’S JOURNEY INTO THE AFTERLIFE
Thousands of people have had near death experiences (NDEs), but many in the scientific community have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander, an academic neurosurgeon, was one of those people.
Dr Eben Alexander was a highly trained neurosurgeon who had operated on thousands of brains in the course of his career. He was certain that what people of faith call the “soul” is really a product of brain chemistry. NDEs, Dr Alexander would have been the first to explain, might feel real to the people having them, but in truth they are quite simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress.
Coincidentially, the day when Dr. Alexander’s own brain was attacked by an extremely rare illness. The part of the brain that controls thought and emotion—and in essence makes us human— shut down completely. Dr Alexander lay in a hospital bed in a deep coma for seven days. As his doctors weighed the possibility of stopping treatment, Dr Alexander’s eyes opened. He had returned.
By all accounts, Eben Alexander's recovery is a medical miracle. But now Dr Alexander asserts the real miracle of his story lies elsewhere. While his family watched his lifeless body laying in coma, Alexander journeyed beyond this world and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of super-physical existence. On this journey he met, and spoke with, the Divine source of the universe itself.
Before Dr Alexander's rich experience he would have thought this story sounded like the wild and wonderful imaginings of a skilled fantasy writer. But he now recognizes it is not fantasy. Before Alexander underwent his journey, he could not reconcile his knowledge of neuroscience with any belief in heaven, God, or the soul. An empty space that no professional triumph could erase was created by that difficulty with belief . Today Dr Alexander is a doctor who believes that only when we realize that God and the soul are real and that death is not the end of personal existence but only a transition can true health be achieved.
This story would be remarkable no matter who it happened to. That it happened to a well credentialed doctor makes it revolutionary. Every scientist and person of faith will not be able to ignore it. Proof of Heaven will change your life.
