90 Minutes in Heaven: A True Story of Death and Life

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 woma 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.

90 Minutes in Heaven was a antastic ook!

Also, if you 've ever wondered what heaven is like, this is also for you.

( Not great, but not goo.) As Piper describes, his experience has given him the ability to empathise with and help many people who have been through very serious injuries and face lengthly and painful recoveries.

Piper was n't comfortable letting people do things for him, but throughout his recovery his friends, family, and parishioners were constantly visiting and wanting to help.

On seeing this, the old man literally got in Piper 's face and rebuked him for not letting his Christian brothers and sisters minister to him.

What a missed opportunity.And speaking of missed opportunities: Piper speaks often about his visit to heaven allowing him to give others assurance of its reality, yet nowhere in the nove does he communicate the Gospel.

He speaks of one woman who " became a Christian " through his ministry and got assurance of heaven, but again he does n't explain how.

In the beginnin I felt that with all the talk about reassurance of the reality of heaven Piper was pretty much enforcing the common assumption of our culture that justification is by death, not by grace through faith in the death and esurrection of Jesus.And what about the " 90 Minutes in Heaven ".

As for Piper 's desire to assure people of the existence of eaven, I 'm eminded of Jesus' parable of the rich man and Lazarus.

Whichever way you go as noted try to keep an open mind.Now I do see one problem with the books and I 'd like to give a heads up about it.

It 's something many of us have to deal with as there are words and shorthand phrases that we get used to using among ourselves ( for example " prayer warrior ") that may not be clear to people who do n't use those phrases regularly.I 'd say do n't let that put you off and try not to get annoyed.

This ook can be encouraging and I 'd say try it yourself and see what you think.

After reading the back cover of this novel and learning that the tal was about a woma who had been killed in a gruesome car crash, went to heaven and then returned to life 90 minutes later, I had igh expectations for a fascinating read.

So I was left wanting to believe that heaven was truly as wonderful a place as he conveyed it to be- a most comforting thought in the face of loss and mortality- yet was somewhat convinced by his description that it was a heaven only an Evangelical could dream of and one that I would and could not experience.

Do n't get me wrong, there were hings in this novel that struck a chord with me and that at times gave me chills or brought me to tears, but I have read much more descriptive and eloquent delivery of a life story from people whose second language is English.

Of course, the chemo brain mom purchased the short version of the memoi.

Shoot.) So.I think this is a delightful nove for people of the Christian faith who are dealing with grief or end of life ssues.

( GOD BLESS YOU, Chemo Brain!) Look, I can not get past the guy saying he was dead for 90 minutes.90 MINUTES! I work with people who have been " dead " for three inutes and ca n't wipe their butt, let alone recall being dead and write a ook about it!
