Publisher's Summary

The author of the number-one New York Times best seller Proof of Heaven teams up with the sages of times past, modern scientists, and with ordinary people who have had profound spiritual experiences to show the reality of heaven and our true identities as spiritual beings.
WhenProof of Heaven was published, some people contacted Dr. Eben Alexander to argue that his near death experience was impossible. But many more have written to say his story resonated with them in profound ways. Because of what these people have told him, Dr. Alexander has come to realize that sharing his story has allowed people to believe what so many in ancient times knew: there is more to life, and to the universe, than this single earthly life.
Dr. Alexander met and heard from thousands of individuals whom his story has affected. He also studied what the world’s religious traditions, and its philosophers, have had to say about the soul’s survival of death, and he has been deeply surprised at how often those voices from the past synch up with what he heard from people today. In The Map of Heaven, he shares some of the stories that the people have told him and links them up with what the world’s spiritual traditions have to say about the journey of the soul.
Part metaphysical detective story, part manual for living, The Map of Heaven explores humankind’s spiritual history and the birth of modern science in the 17th century, showing how we forgot, and are now at last remembering, who we really are and what our true destiny really is.

Wonderful book

I thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Alexander's first book, "Proof of Heaven", and so was looking forward to this one. I was not disappointed. The book synthesizes scientific and religious evidence of heaven, gently chiding both for their preconceived dogmas, and liberally salts it with accounts both from others' research and from letters Dr. Alexander received. The book presents a compelling case, with steps to move forward. Recommended.

Lovely sequel to Proof of Heaven and NDE studies

If you could sum up The Map of Heaven in three words, what would they be?

Life is Eternal

What other book might you compare The Map of Heaven to and why?

All of the many books on Near Death experience <br/>

What does Eben Alexander bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His personal commitment to the fileld of NDE's from his own experience and his role as a key figure in promoting the field of NDE research including symposiums and conferences and the many researchers he has dialoged with since his own NDE.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The Love of Heaven

Any additional comments?

I appreciated this collection of research and studies of the NDE experience and the current state of this new "science" of documentation and enquiry into the reality changing integration of NDE's into philosophy and psychology and ethics in to human experience and the resulting life changing effects of NDE's on all those involved with the experience and those close to those who have had NDE experiences. From Eben Alexander's background as a respected clinical physical/surgeon to the colorful writing style of Ptolemy Tompkins this book synthesizes many other books and research projects and stories on the subject of NDE and transformational effects and the life changing elements.<br/><br/>
