100 Book Project: Book #61: You are Loved

Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife by Eben Alexander, M.D.

I can't even begin to review this book for you without this disclaimer. I like books like this. I believe this stuff. If you already think you believe and you haven't read Many Lives, Many Masters, just go get a copy and let me know what you think.

If you don't like books that write about the soul and the complete connection we all have all the time with God, then definitely don't pick this book up.

This is a very popular book that has an explanatory title, so I feel silly explaining the book to you but it would be rude to skip an overview so here it is. This nice man has a near death experience and... well, guess where he went?

I loved it, and if a friend lends you a copy, thank them warmly and read it as soon as you can.

Here are my two favorite quotes from the book -
"The universe has no beginning or end, and God is entirely present within every particle of it." (156)

"You are loved. Those words are what I needed to hear as an orphan, as a child who'd been given away. But it's also what every one of us in this materialistic age needs to hear as well, because in terms of who we really are, where we really come from, and where we're really going, we all feel (wrongly) like orphans." (170)
