What I took away from this book was raw truth of afterlife. It left me with a different assurance than most reads of NDE books for me. Possibly because he is a man of science-and they are traditionally great arguers of the impossibility of life after death.
The fact that the brain, the very part of your body you think and reason with-was virtually completely inaccessible due to a rare illness, and for seven days he was in a coma-wasn't enough to make you wonder how much he and his family could endure, just when his doctors considered it was time to stop all medications and treatment; he wakes up and and literally, his brain comes back to life.
Dr. Alexander is a modern day medical miracle, and more than that, his real story tells us of much more than a medical phenomenon. His journey is beyond this world and into another much more miraculous than the one we live in now. His guide, an angelic being, accompanied him to meet and speak with the Divine Creator of the universe itself.
This is no fairy tale. Prior to his journey he could not bring himself to grips with a belief in heaven, souls, or God. Ask him today, and Alexander will give you a different philosophy. Today, his beliefs are true health cannot be achieved until we realize that God and the soul are real and that death is not the end of our personal existence, but only a transition.
This was a terrific read for me. I did not want to put it down. I found it very enlightening and not as cutesy as other books regarding NDE experiences. Maybe, because he was a doctor of science-he needed proof himself, I don't know. What I do know is this-this book is worth reading!
