Synopsis

As he is driving home from a minister's conference, Baptist minister Don Piper collides with a semi-truck that crosses into his lane. He is pronounced dead at the scene. For the next 90 minutes, Piper experiences heaven where he is greeted by those who had influenced him spiritually. He hears beautiful music and feels true peace.

Back on earth, a passing minister who had also been at the conference is led to pray for Don even though he knows the man is dead. Piper miraculously comes back to life and the bliss of heaven is replaced by a long and painful recovery.

For years Piper kept his heavenly experience to himself. Finally, however, friends and family convinced him to share his remarkable story.

I walked away after reading this book changed. It really is hard to explain the changes...I think the changes inside of me deal with the purpose of our existence and that the small details we don’t even consider worthy of thought or prayer mean everything to the God who loves us.

There are three very important parts to this book. Each one, in itself, is well worth reading and gets my recommendation.

There will be readers who believe the accounts as described in his book, and others who will consider it a fraud. I leave that distinction entirely up to the reader. I did find the book to be an extremely compelling read.

Beyond the first few chapters the book is not well planned and frustrating to read. It is less about heaven and more about a preacher redefining what his religion means to him, for him, and what his mission here is.

... Piper is just an ordinary man. Barely walking upright in an earthly life he built. Wife, three children, family, church congregation, friends. Responsibilities, relationships. His life. BUT, all the while, we get the sense he is waiting. Waiting to go home again. It is both joyous and terribly sad.
