Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife

Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife - Eben Alexander I first heard Dr. Eben Alexander's speech on YouTube some time back: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nhah5WdWRCk. Here was a neurosurgeon: steeped in facts of science about the brain and its workings, and being in a coma so deep that he 'crossed over' into a realm that upon awakening, he struggled to find adequate words to explain. On the one hand, what he writes and describes is nothing new, in that for those who believe, there is no need for proof, though the details are mesmerizing and awe-inspiring. On the other hand, it can be said to be ground-breaking in that it is a book with spiritual elements penned by a man of science -- and it is written in a attempt to bridge the divide between (eternal) truth and hard science.
