“Proof of Heaven” Book Asks Readers For An Open Mind
I’m the first to admit that my wife is the spiritual one in our family. While I try to keep an open mind with regards to matters of spirituality I tend to believe more strongly in things that I can taste, smell, touch, taste or hear. However, when my wife suggested I read a best-selling book called “Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeons Journey Into the Afterlife” I said, “OK, but don’t think it will change the way I look at things”. Did it?
I’m not sure it changed my mind but it did give me pause to think. The book details Dr. Alexander Eban’s experiences while in a coma caused by an bacterial infection. The fact that it was written by a “man of science” with no previous belief in “afterlife” made me curious to find out what was different about his take as opposed to other more traditional “after-death” related books. You can read an excellent New York Times review of it here.
