Mini Review: Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife by Eben Alexander

I don’t usually go for books about near death experiences.  They tend to come out reading like an episode from Touched by an Angel or The Ghost Whisperer, but a book written by a neurosurgeon about his own experience sounded fascinating, and it was.  In this book, Alexander describes his near-death experience, while in a six-day coma  after contracting  Bacterial Meningitis.  He then goes on to find research that could help to explain this and put it into a scientific context.  This is a good read for the believer in the afterlife and the skeptic alike.  One caveat the book will be disconcerting to those who take a biblical/ Christian view of the afterlife.  in this case, read with your eyes wide open.
