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.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5★ by 21reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent Book This is an excellent book. He definitely had a profound experience. As all of the NDE's are, his was for a specific purpose. It was geared for him and other doctors and scientists who are skeptics that there is a God, a Supreme Being. He came out of this experience with a miracle recovery and a changed attitude about life and what it's all about. There are some pages in this book that are very technical, because he is speaking to his scientific and medical peers. But it does not take away from the fact that the ordinary person, like me, can get a great deal out of this book. I would recommend it. In addition, if you want a NDE book that is meant for the ordinary person, I highly recommend Betty Jean Eadie's "Embraced by the Light." 10/25/2012

Rated 3 out of 5★ by astonishing! Good read in the moment, if you already believe there is afterlife this just reinforces, if you do not believe this would be thougt provoking. 11/10/2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent price and quick delivery. 02/19/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Good book- I bought an extra copy for my sister. This is an excellent book- I read the book twice and it gives a great perspective from a doctors point of view of the afterlife. 06/10/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Skeptics and believers will find food for thought A great read for the believer or skeptic alike by a uniquely qualified author who personally experienced a NDE and who also happens to be a neuroscientist-surgeon whose scientific training could not explain the reality he experienced during his NDE. A real page turner that will leave you wanting to learn more about NDEs and the meaning of life in general. 12/04/2012
