Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander

This book is a great read. I don't post this with the intent of evangelizing but personally this book helped me feel more confident in my faith and introduced me to new theories while also helping me make my existing thoughts more concrete.
For a quick synopsis; It is an autobiographical book detailing Eben Alexander's journey with faith up to and then after an event that left him essentially brain dead. He discusses his near death experience with the analytic eye of a neurosurgeon (which is his profession) and attempts to explain the heaven he saw while he lay in the hospital bed unaware of his surroundings.
The book is powerful and a quick read and at the very least sparks discussion.
I highly suggest it to anyone, religious or not, who is interested in having their views challenged, and in thinking critically of the world around them.

Has anyone else read this book? What are your thoughts on it?
