Proof of Heaven Book Review

In his book, Proof of Heaven: A Neuroscientist’s Journey into the Afterlife, Dr. Eben Alexander mysteriously contracts bacterial meningitis and slips into a coma. For seven days he layed lifeless with very little hope of coming out of it or much less living a healthy  life if he did come out of coma.

During these seven days,  Dr. Alexander had a spiritual life transforming event: a near death experience, or NDE.

A true scientist by nature, he was skeptical of near death experiences and anything that resembled such an experience. In the book he states, “I was the quintessential good-natured, albeit skeptical, doctor.” Before this experience, he’d listen to stories that his patients would tell him and was compassionate in his own way.

Throughout the book, he does his best to describe the magical realm that he calls The Core, or Heaven. In Proof of Heaven, he read other’s accounts of their NDEs and he understood each story that he read, but he described the difficulties these individuals had when it came to describing their accounts, “And yet, with each attempt that fell frustratingly short of its goal, each person straining at language and ideas to get this enormity across to the read.”

He himself struggled with his description of this quintessential dimension, yet he understood it as love.

There were moments of hope and despair for both his family and friends. Nevertheless, they stayed with him and  prayed for him as doctors desperately did all they could to fight of this aggressive infection. In fact, they never left his bedside and someone always held his hand.

Dr. Alexander is here to say that there is an Om, Spirit, God,  Creator, The Universe- whatever you wish to call this great, benevolent divine force, and that there is life after death.

This is another must read book! You can purchase Proof of Heaven at Amazon.

Reseña del Libro Proof of Heaven  (La prueba del cielo)

En su libro,  Proof of Heaven: A Neuroscientist’s Journey into the Afterlife (La prueba del cielo: el viaje de un neurocirujano a la vida después de la muerte), el doctor Eben Alexander misteriosamente contrae meningitis bacteriana y cae en coma. Durante siete días su cuerpo estuvo sin vida, con poca esperanza de salir de ella y mucho menos vivir una vida saludable si saliera del coma.

Durante estos siete días, el doctor Alexander tiene un episodio transformante espiritual: experiencias cercanas a la muerte, o ECM. 

Como científico, él era un escéptico de las experiencias cercanas a la muerte o cualquier cosa que se asemejara.  En el libro dice, “Como doctor, yo era la quintaesencia del buen carácter, aunque escéptico.” Antes de su experiencia, él escuchaba a sus pacientes con compasión, pero a su manera.

A través del libro, él intenta describir este lugar mágico que nombra The Core (el cielo), o El Núcleo.  En Proof of Heaven, él lee acontecimientos de otros que tuvieron un ECM y entiende las dificultades que tuvieron al intentar de describir sus experiencias. El doctor Alexander dice, “Y, sin embargo, con cada intento que cayó frustrante por debajo de su objetivo, cada persona teniendo esa dificultad de lenguaje y de ideas para poder expresar la magnitud de todo a través de la lectura.”

Él mismo tuvo problemas con la descripción de esta dimensión quintaesencia, sin embargo lo captó como el amor. 

Había momentos de esperanza y de desesperación tanto para la familia como sus amigos. Sinembrago, se mantuvieron a su lado rezándole mientras los doctores hacían todo  para detener la propagación de esta infección.  De hecho, nunca se alejaron de él y siempre había alguien sosteniendo su mano.

El doctor Alexander simplemente nos quiere dejar saber que si hay un Om, Espíritu, Dios, El Creador, El Universo- lo que desean nombrar a este  gran fuerza divina benévola y que hay vida después de la muerte.

¡Proof of Heaven es un libro que todos tienen que leer! Se puede comprar en Amazon

  1. I have read this book. I Dr. Alexander’s descriptions of what he believes to be heaven. So many have had this experience, found it hard to describe, and had their experience discounted. Dr. Alexander was a skeptic himself until he had his own NDE.
