  "proof of heaven" by Bayoubooks (see profile) 05/31/13

disjointed and repetitive narrative.
relies on his "authority" as a neurosurgeon to believe what he proclaims, without any true evidence whatsoever.

  "Good read" by erowen (see profile) 07/01/13

I liked his story. Gives us hope.

  "Intriguing, but not convincing" by vlj1120 (see profile) 08/09/13

I enjoyed this book as a story, but not as \\\\\\\"proof of heaven.\\\\\\\" I think the title was misleading. I think the narrator took a very VIVID experience as PROOF, and I don\\\\\\\'t think those are the same thing.

  "Proof of Heaven" by Carole1 (see profile) 09/27/13

There is no way to prove that heaven exists. Those of us who believe in an afterlife choose to have faith. Many of us, too, have heard accounts from friends and family members who experienced near death experiences that strengthened our faith. This author's account was rambling and not uplifting or affirming. Our book club managed to have a spirited discussion about it anyway!

Felt like I was reading a book about a vivid dream to Disneyland...there were the scary rides, and the not so scary rides...and no convincing story about any type of connection to the Heaven that I am dreaming of. Jesus\' name was never mentioned.

You are loved unconditionally. There is nothing to fear. Everything is in Devine Order.

  "Proof of Heaven" by KristiK (see profile) 03/14/14

I enjoyed this book because of the way that Dr. Alexander is able to use his neuro-science and actually relate it to a near death experience. For him to acknowledge that this happened to him is HUGE! He is able to describe events that happened to him in words that make it relatable. I thought he seemed to go off on several tangents in the beginning of the book, but of course, it is all neatly tied together in the end and all makes sense. There is lots to discuss in this one for a book group and would also be good for a church group wanting to read something a little different.

  "Repetitive" by [email protected] (see profile) 12/13/15

Book Club members overall expressed that the book was repetitive and could have been better edited. The author had his experience no one argued that it did not happen. We all have our thoughts of heaven and it can't be explained.
