I love reading the New York Times Sunday Book Review section. This week, it contained a nice surprise: a very kind mention of PROOF OF HEAVEN nestled in a great interview with Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts. Here’s the excerpt:
What was the last truly great book you read?
The last truly great book I read was Dr. Eben Alexander’s “Proof of Heaven.” His brain was attacked by an extremely rare illness. His recovery was a medical miracle and then some. Before he became ill, Dr. Alexander, a neurosurgeon, was one of many in the scientific community who did not believe in near-death experiences. While in a coma, Alexander contends, he left this world and encountered a spirit that guided him and not only saved his life but changed it forever.
Given Ms Roberts’ public battle with a rare illness of her own, her words are especially poignant.
If you’d like to read the rest, the interview is available here.
