Default "Proof of Heaven" - best selling book by athiest neurosurgeon that had an NDE

anyone familiar with this or read it?

http://www.eternea.org/Eben_Alexande...raphy_eben.htm


Dr. Eben Alexander, III, M.D.

someone told me about this book last night, I didn't know about...apparently this man was a atheist Dr. who also assumed that NDEs were products of the brain that we just hadn't been able to explain yet (like many posters here). Then he gets a rare brain desease, "bacterial meningitis-encephalitis" and goes into a coma and flat-lines...comes back a believer in God.

And like everyone that has an NDE, he comes back saying that the afterlife is "more real" than life here on Earth...and there is no one that can tell him that what he had as a dream of some sort.

I will be buying this book

Misleading title for this book, should be called "how i changed my *opinion* of heaven" or something along those lines.

and I have read many...

there aren't that many written by neurosurgeons though


according to the person that told me about this book, he brings science into the book A LOT...which I think would be refreshing to read about this from someone that is very familiar with the brain, rather than just an average Joe.

This book was being touted heavily awhile back by some of my super religious friends on Facebook so I ignored it (and I believe in God).

wrong...he runs a nonprofit organization for this...

Quote:
Through his nonprofit organization, Eternea, Dr. Alexander has dedicated himself to sharing this information, promoting further research on the unifying elements of science and spirituality, and encouraging people to be inspired by the power of unconditional love in their daily lives and in their work in their communities.


like almost all NDEers, he came out devoting his life to charity work...that is super common for people who go through this
