"Eben Alexander proves to us once again that experience is the greatest source of knowledge. Relying on his own near death experience and those of others who have written to him, Eben takes us from the wisdom of the Greek philosophers through to modern medical researchers to give us an overview of that mysterious place known as the afterlife. . . . A courageous book that tackles the question of life after life with science, philosophy and the heart rending experiences of many who have gone to the other side."

“Neurosurgeon Eben Alexander generated enormous interest in what happens when we die in Proof of Heaven, his many-splendored account of his near-death experience. In The Map of Heaven, he expands his account by relating similar experiences of others, and by a rich analysis of supporting views from scientists and philosophers. The evidence Alexander offers suggests that the day is approaching when it will be considered irrational and unscientific not to believe in the survival of consciousness following physical death. This day cannot come too soon, for it will restore meaning and hope in a world besotted with the morbid fictions of materialism. Thank you, Dr. Alexander.”

"Dr. Alexander does it again. He brings his unique and considerable scientific knowledge and illuminates the world of spirituality. He creates a geography of science and faith that shows us a larger world filled with hope and dignity."

"In this important book, Eben Alexander describes how his own life-changing NDE was a personal example of what scientists, spiritual leaders and ordinary people throughout the world have been reporting, especially in the last two decades. This book makes it wonderfully clear how these mind-blowing experiences can have an enormous positive impact on the way we live our lives."
– Pim van Lommel, M.D., author of Consciousness beyond Life
"Moving beyond Proof of Heaven, Eben Alexander here draws upon his own coma experience in combination with related accounts from a wide variety of sources to advance an ecumenical vision, which I strongly support, of recovering humanity’s lost wisdom through creative synthesis of the best in contemporary science and religion."
