Book Review – Proof of heaven: a neurosurgeon’s journey into the afterlife

Ever since I lost Olivia I have wanted to believe that there is an afterlife.  I am agnostic and dont know if there is a “God” but I do believe that a higher power does exist or at least I hope it does. This book is about a neurosurgeon who suffers from a severe infection of the brain which causes him to go into a deep coma.

The author was an agnostic physician with expertise in the brain and consciousness. He started with a strong position that all consciousness is centered in brain function. If the brain stops functioning, you are dead and there is no coming back. He was skeptical of claims of near death experiences because he knew how the drugs doctors used to bring patients back affected the brain. But when his brain completely shut down, he experienced a very deep entry into Oneness, and was miraculously brought back to life, not by medical intervention – they had given up and were ready to pull the plug – but by Divine intervention. He struggled to reconcile what he knew as a physician and neurosurgeon with his experiences when his brain was completely “off-line”.  What was interesting was that in the afterlife he had a guide which he did not recognize.  His guide ends up being his biological sister which he had never met since he was adopted and had died several years ago.

This is definitely an interesting book and if you are interested in the afterlife and near death experiences you will like the book.

    I have been meaning to read this ever since I read Heaven is for Real, by Todd Burpo (another book I would definitely recommend, btw). I work in healthcare, and certainly have been trained to believe the same ideas that this neurosurgeon would have had. I love a book that challenges everything I think that I ‘know’!!!
