The latest Authors Live! will feature Dr. Eben Alexander talking about his new book, The Map of Heaven: How Science, Religion, and Ordinary People Are Proving That the World Beyond is Real.
Part metaphysical detective story, part manual for living, The Map of Heaven explores humankind's spiritual history and the birth of modern science n the 17th century showing how we forgot, and are now at last remembering who we really are and what our true destiny really is.
Dr. Alexander has been an academic neurosurgeon for the last 25 years, including 15 years at Harvard Medical School in Boston. Dr. Alexander met and heard from thousands of individuals whom his story, Proof of Heaven, 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.
