Thousands of people have had near-death experience, but scientists have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander was one of those scientists. A highly trained neurosurgeon, Alexander knew that NDEs feel real, but are simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress. Then, Dr. Alexander's own brain was attacked by a rare illness. The part of the brain that controls thought and emotion, and in essence makes us human, shut down completely. For seven days he lay in a coma. Then, as his doctors considered stopping treatment, Alexander's eyes popped open. He had come back. Alexander's recovery is 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.

Prompt Arrival - Prime Condition!
Because of pre holiday planning I have not taken time to read this book. Previously read reviews which prompted this order.

Profound near-death experience
Dr. Alexander's personal testimony of his intense out-of-body experiences despite a neurocortex without any electrical activity became even more compelling in view of his extensive training as a scientist and a neurosurgeon. We have bought and given away other copies. Excellent reading.
