… one man’s experience with life after death? Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife by Eben Alexander, M.D., has the whole story. These kinds of books always get me hooked and I have to read them (especially as I age). I mean who isn’t curious about the afterlife, right? But this one was written by a neurosurgeon so I figured he had a leg up on most of the others who had a Near Death Experience (NDE) and wrote a book.
I was also pleasantly surprised to find out that this book contained a story within a story. Dr. Alexander is an orphan and was trying to find out the identity his biological parents, and darn if he didn’t weave that into the whole experience too. It was a very quick read and the book contains a very thorough bibliography at the end, of other, similar titles. No doubt I will be checking out those books, too, or interlibrary loaning them.
