Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Near-Death Experience and Journey into the Afterlife by Eben Alexander was published in 2012 and deals with the Near Death Experience (NDE) of the author- Dr. Eben Alexander. In 2008, he contracted E.Coli bacterial meningitis which resulted in him being in a coma for seven days. The doctors and his family had almost resigned to the fact that he could be saved and were waiting for the inevitable result. While his body lay in a coma, the author had taken a journey to the after-life.
He describes the first thing as earthworm’s eye view which was a place of gloom and darkness. After this, he traveled to what he calls as the gateway which was filled with light, beautiful sounds, and beautiful butterflies flying around.
One beautiful young lady was flying on the butterfly (which the author later comes to identify as his deceased sister he had never seen) who gave him the message and words of hope. In the end, the author experiences the core which he describes as God. He says that the creator is real and not a myth. Alexander then again takes the journey back and comes back to his body and wakes up, much to the surprise of the doctors treating him and his family. The author says that he learned lessons which changed his life forever. He says that everything in the universe is connected and is bound by love.
