Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Thousands of people have had near-death experiences, but scientists have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander was one of those scientists. A highly trained neurosurgeon, Alexander knew that NDEs feel real, but are simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress.
Then, Dr. Alexander's own brain was attacked by a rare illness. The part of the brain that controls thought and emotion--and in essence makes us human--shut down completely. For seven days he lay in a coma. Then, as his doctors considered stopping treatment, Alexander's eyes popped open. He had come back.
Alexander's recovery is 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.
Alexander's story is not a fantasy. Before he underwent his journey, he could not reconcile his knowledge of neuroscience with any belief in heaven, God, or the soul. Today Alexander 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.

Rated 4.4 out of 5★ by 21reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by This book is excellent and worth every penny. This book is excellent and thought provoking. You won't want to put it down. I am recommending to my family and friends. 01/12/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Wonderfully Inspirational Book I really enjoyed reading this story. Very well written and inspirational! 07/29/2014
Rated 2 out of 5★ by Title is misleading Spoiler ALERT!!!!... I may be this criticial because of my own 2 O.B.E.'s so far.If one doens't mind 3/4th of the reading being about the Doctors life as a surgeon and only 1/4th of book about his heaven experience then you may not be as dissapointed as we were. While it was interesting reading about his exploits it came acrossed as filler fluff to that title that we believed the writing would focus around. While it was amazing seeing him gathering information after he came back and his experience when on the astral plane it left us with a dissapointing taste in our mouths. He did a good job of tying the observers left behind story with what and he was experiencing when his fellow Doctors were ready to toss in the towel. If we had to chose to purchase this book again we would pass on it and go for another read that deals more with the heaven part. It is a difficult task to put what one expereinces with O.B.E.'s having gone through a couple myself. So it is not an easy subject to write about let alone get it into words that we can appreciate and get the same feel as one receives when there. 04/10/2013
Rated 2 out of 5★ by The value of belief Over time I have looked for evidence that would show the value of belief in a life beyond this physical life. This book falls short of that.The author's credentials as a neurosurgeon seem quite strong, but his interpretations of his dreams and emotions do not seem very scientific. They do not seem to be proof of anything except, perhaps, that the brain can recover from severe trauma.My overall conclusion is that this book was disappointing because it really isn’t proof of much. It is just a fellow talking about his own personal experience that is influenced by the culture he comes from. 02/17/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Astonishing! I checked Dr. Alexander's credentials before I read the book, and was very impressed. I began reading with the assumption that this man had no reason to fabricate his story, and if he made a convincing scientific presentation, I was willing to accept him at his word. I've never really believed The Bible, always considered it folklore. Dr. Alexander's book changed my mind. Astonishing! 04/15/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great book to read I like the book and the price was really good for it . 12/05/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by good I purchased this book for myself. it was a very good book. The author wrote from a neurosurgeon's point of view. He talked a little over my head. But I appreciate him sharing his story 12/08/2013
Rated 2 out of 5★ by missing some inf. In a way it is an easy read. I just skipped over the technical stuff. There are some things that seem to be insinuated that I don't agree with theologically. 01/01/2014
