Synopsis: 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.
When Proof of Heaven was published, some readers 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. Thanks to them, Dr. Alexander came to realize that sharing his story has allowed people to rediscover 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, with coauthor Ptolemy Tompkins, also studied what the world?s religious traditions, philosophers, and scientists have had to say about the soul?s survival of death. He has been deeply surprised at how often those voices from the past sync up with what he hears from people today. In The Map of Heaven, he shares some of the stories that people have told him and links them to what the world?s spiritual traditions and its latest scientific insights have to say about the journey of the soul.
Part metaphysical and scientific detective story, part manual for living, The Map of Heaven explores humankind?s spiritual history and the progression of modern science from its birth in the seventeenth century, showing how we forgot, and are now at last remembering, who we really are and what our destiny truly is.
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.
