Cético, defensor da lógica científica e neurocirurgião há mais de 25 anos, o Dr. Eben Alexander viu sua vida virar do avesso quando passou por uma experiência que ele mesmo considerava impossível. Vítima de uma meningite bacteriana grave, ficou em coma por sete dias. Enquanto os médicos tentavam controlar a doença, algo extraordinário aconteceu. Eben embarcou numa jornada por um mundo completamente estranho. Sem consciência da própria identidade, foi mergulhando cada vez mais fundo nessa realidade difusa, onde conheceu seres celestiais e fez descobertas transformadoras sobre a existência da vida após a morte e a profunda relação que todos nós temos com Deus. Quando os médicos já pensavam em suspender seu tratamento, o inesperado aconteceu: seus olhos se abriram. Ele estava de volta. Mas nunca mais seria o mesmo. Aquela experiência o levou a questionar tudo em que acreditava até então. Afinal, como neurocirurgião, ele sabia que o que vivenciou não poderia ter sido uma mera fantasia produzida por seu cérebro, que estava praticamente destruído. Analisando as evidências à luz dos conhecimentos científicos, o Dr. Eben decidiu compartilhar essa incrível história para mostrar que ciência e espiritualidade podem – e devem – andar juntas. Narrado com o fascínio de um paciente que visitou o outro lado e com a objetividade de um médico que tenta comprovar a veracidade de sua experiência, este é um livro emocionante sobre a cura física e espiritual e a vida que se esconde nas diversas dimensões do Universo. "A experiência de quase morte do Dr. Eben Alexander é a mais impressionante que já ouvi nas mais de quatro décadas de estudo sobre esse fenômeno." – Dr. Raymond A. Moody, Jr. "Para quem está lidando com a morte, a mensagem desse livro é um alento." – The New York Times

The #1 New York Times bestselling account of a neurosurgeon's own near-death experience—for readers of 7 Lessons from Heaven.

Thousands of people have had near-death experiences, but scientists have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander was one of those scientists. A highly trained neurosurgeon, Alexander knew that NDEs feel real, but are simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress.

Then, Dr. Alexander’s own brain was attacked by a rare illness. The part of the brain that controls thought and emotion—and in essence makes us human—shut down completely. For seven days he lay in a coma. Then, as his doctors considered stopping treatment, Alexander’s eyes popped open. He had come back.

Alexander’s recovery is a medical miracle. But the real miracle of his story lies elsewhere. While his body lay in coma, Alexander journeyed beyond this world and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of super-physical existence. There he met, and spoke with, the Divine source of the universe itself.

Alexander’s story is not a fantasy. Before he underwent his journey, he could not reconcile his knowledge of neuroscience with any belief in heaven, God, or the soul. Today Alexander is a doctor who believes that true health can be achieved only when we realize that God and the soul are real and that death is not the end of personal existence but only a transition.

This story would be remarkable no matter who it happened to. That it happened to Dr. Alexander makes it revolutionary. No scientist or person of faith will be able to ignore it. Reading it will change your life.
The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller 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. The Map of Heaven takes the broad view to reveal how modern science is on the verge of the most profound revolution in recorded history—all around the phenomenon of consciousness itself!

When Dr. Eben Alexander told the story of his near-death experience and his vivid journey to the other side, many readers wrote to say it resonated with them profoundly. Thanks to them, Dr. Alexander realized that sharing his story allowed people to rediscover what so many in ancient times knew: there is more to life, and the to the universe, than this single earthly life.

Dr. Alexander and his co-author Ptolemy Tompkins were surprised to see how often his readers’ visions of the afterlife synced up with each other and with those of the world’s spiritual leaders, as well as its philosophers and scientists. In The Map of Heaven, he shares the stories people have told him and shows how they are echoed both in the world’s faiths and in its latest scientific insights. It turns out there is much agreement, across time and terrain, about the journey of the soul and its survival beyond death.

In this book, Dr. Alexander makes the case for heaven as a genuine place, showing how we have forgotten, but are now at last remembering, who we really are and what our destiny truly is.
