EBEN ALEXANDER III, MD, a renowned academic neurosurgeon, spent 55 years honing his scientific world view, until a rare illness left him in a coma. Seven days later, he awoke from a transcendental near-death experience with new insights that he reports in his #1 New York Times Bestseller Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife. Join Dr. Alexander as he shares his transformative experience, its profound lessons, and the complete revision of everything he has come to believe about science, consciousness, spirituality, and the very nature of all existence.
Demons and angels and ghosts, oh my! Kansas girl without ruby slippers dies, has near-death experience and comes back to relocate in the Emerald City.
