Proof of Heaven – A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife by Eben Alexander, M.D.

For more than 25 years Dr. Eben Alexander, renowned academic neurosurgeon, honed his scientific worldview, studying how the the brain, the mind and consciousness work. Then, in November 2008 he developed an inexplicable brain infection, which pushed him to the brink of death. He spent a week in a coma, during which he experienced a transcendental near-death experience (NDE). He recovered completely and recorded his experience, hence the title.

He experienced the hyper-reality of the spiritual realm, similar to numerous recounted NDEs. The past six years he has spent reconciling his unique spiritual experience with contemporary physics and scientific understanding. He is the co-founder of Eternea, which busy itself with a better understanding of science and religion, and has put together a research team to study this. You can visit him at and  Proof of heaven is a compelling story that breaks taboos, attempting to lift the veil on the Afterlife, challenging scientists, skeptics, believers and seekers alike.
