Description

A SCIENTIST’S CASE FOR THE AFTERLIFE
Near-death experiences, or NDEs, are controversial. Thousands of people have had them, but many in the scientific community have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander was one of those people.

A highly trained neurosurgeon who had operated on thousands of brains in the course of his career, Alexander knew that what people of faith call the “soul” is really a product of brain chemistry. NDEs, he would have been the first to explain, might feel real to the people having them, but in truth they are simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress.

Then came 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. For seven days Alexander lay in a hospital bed in a deep coma. Then, as his doctors weighed the possibility of stopping treatment, Alexander’s eyes popped open. He had come back.

Alexander’s recovery is by all accounts a medical miracle. But the real miracle of his story lies elsewhere. While his body lay in coma, Alexander journeyed beyond this world and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of super-physical existence. There he met, and spoke with, the Divine source of the universe itself.

This story sounds like the wild and wonderful imaginings of a skilled fantasy writer. But 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. That difficulty with belief created an empty space that no professional triumph could erase. Today he is a doctor who believes that true health can be achieved 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.

This story would be remarkable no matter who it happened to. That it happened to Dr. Alexander makes it revolutionary. No scientist or person of faith will be able to ignore it. Reading it will change your life.

    What an amazing book. I thoroughly enjoyed the way it was written and the subject made me want to read until I finished it. I totally believe Dr. Alexander's experience and I am sure it happened so that he could let us know what he felt and saw while under coma. To make us aware that life does not end at death. Dr Jill Bolte Taylor in her book "Stroke of Insight ",describes how she felt after her stroke, how she felt she was part of everything and that we are all one. Thank you for sharing this amazing experience, it just corroborates my thoughts of life after passing and that if we are more aware of the energies around us and live more in tuned with our earth, mountains, nature, more in LOVE with our world, we can make a big difference, one little drop at a time. Thanks again, Susan W

    An amazing experience documented in a clear and forthright manner confirming what I have always known to be true. If you are a spiritual person this book is for you. If you are a religious type (Christian) you are in the wrong place unless you are willing to learn some thing new.
  • Sells False Assurances

    From Hellololhihi
    This book is a wonderful example of propaganda, written with a assurances that not one person can claim other than the author. Never mind that the author uses his occupation to legitimize his points which is completely irrelevant considering that he is a neurosurgeon not a neuroscientist. That would be the equivalent of asking a construction worker to explain to you the complexities of the foundations of hundred story skyscrapers instead of an architect or a physicist. What angers me the most is the book gives people false hope, assurances that can never be proven. Literature should be meant to challenge your view of the world, it should lead to some type of progression and have an aspect of education. And what better to foster progression than doubt? Doubt allows us to challenge our preconceived notions and experience some sort of change. This novel does none of this and that is why it deserves no praise.
