A Journey from Greece to Asia
Proof of heaven : a neurosurgeon's journey into the afterlife by Eben Alexander( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in Hebrew and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"A SCIENTIST'S CASE FOR THE AFTERLIFE Near-death experiences, or NDEs, are controversial. Thousands of people have had them, but many in the scientific community have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander was one of those people. A highly trained neurosurgeon who had operated on thousands of brains in the course of his career, Alexander knew that what people of faith call the "soul" is really a product of brain chemistry. NDEs, he would have been the first to explain, might feel real to the people having them, but in truth they are simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress. Then came the day when Dr. Alexander's own brain was attacked by an extremely rare illness. The part of the brain that controls thought and emotion--and in essence makes us human-- shut down completely. For seven days Alexander lay in a hospital bed in a deep coma. Then, as his doctors weighed the possibility of stopping treatment, Alexander's eyes popped open. He had come back. Alexander's recovery is by all accounts a medical miracle. But the real miracle of his story lies elsewhere. While his body lay in coma, Alexander journeyed beyond this world and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of super-physical existence. There he met, and spoke with, the Divine source of the universe itself. This story sounds like the wild and wonderful imaginings of a skilled fantasy writer. But it is not fantasy. Before Alexander underwent his journey, he could not reconcile his knowledge of neuroscience with any belief in heaven, God, or the soul. That difficulty with belief created an empty space that no professional triumph could erase. Today he is a doctor who believes that true health can be achieved only when we realize that God and the soul are real and that death is not the end of personal existence but only a transition. This story would be remarkable no matter who it happened to. That it happened to Dr. Alexander makes it revolutionary. No scientist or person of faith will be able to ignore it. Reading it will change your life."--

"At first, as Tom and Lauren Seymour walk along the deserted Newcastle waterfront on a cold, gray September afternoon, they are too busy arguing, too absorbed in the breakup of their marriage, to notice the sole other human being at the river's edge - a young man who steps out onto one of the abandoned jetties, swallows a bottle of pills, and throws himself into the icy current. Tom risks his life to rescue the man and is just in time to save him; but soon afterward, Tom begins to discover hidden meanings beneath this stroke of luck. For the man is Danny Miller, and Tom testified years before as an expert witness at Danny Miller's trial for murder, when Danny was ten years old. Now, released from prison and living under an assumed name, Danny asks Tom to help him sort out his life - starting with his past. While Tom grapples with his own troubles, he is lured, by suspicion, guilt, and curiosity, into a lonely, soul-searching reinvestigation of Danny's case."--Jacket
