This is a book everyone should read. Eben is a neurosurgeon who never believed in near death experiences, until he actually experienced one himself. Eben was in a 7 day coma due to gram negative spinal meningitis when he left his family and friends. He left for heaven.
As a scientist and physician, Eben always believed that NDEs (near death experiences) could be explained as brain chemistry playing tricks on the patient, as he’s dying. That makes perfectly good sense, coming from a neurosurgeon. I’ve heard that explanation myself and wondered if it could be true or not. But after reading this book and another by Todd Burpo (Heaven is For Real), I’ve no doubt that they are real and true experiences.
There is a heaven, I have no doubt.
