Now, for the millions who look to him for inspiration, Piper offers the hope that, if he could survive his ordeal after the accident, others can survive whatever life circumstances they're going through - and grow in God's love through the experience. For Piper, heaven is a certainty and so is God's grace. Relying on that assurance, believers can transform pain into purpose and troubles into blessings, finding joy in life even when life turns out not to be what they expected.

"Piper's story is astounding and his life lessons are real: focus on the eternal, find the humor, accept help, give thanks and just hold on." (Publishers Weekly)
I really enjoyed this book. He gave credit to all the people in his life and told how they had helped him "recover" from his "death". He distinguished his experience from the NDE, "near death experience". The book was well written in that it had a good flow from beginning to end. It didn't leave us dangling with questions. He tried to answer all the questions and told us how his life had changed.
This is for someone new to spirituality or who has doubts. I wanted to hear details of his 90 minutes there. What he saw, what he heard, what he did. This is counseling for those who are in need.
This book is a book that you could give to someone who is dying or loves someone who is dying. I think it could give deep peace to one who is ill and is terminal and is a Christian. This author has, due to a car accident, clinically died and spent 90 Minutes in heaven before returning to life here on earth. I have approched reading this backward, I really want to read the 1st book about his time in heaven.
I found this book to be very interesting. Even though I wanted to hear about all his recovery(which I read in 90 Minutes in Heaven) and his experiences with all the other people, I really wanted to hear more about his 90 minutes in Heaven. I just wish he had described it in more detail. Other than that, I think it is a great book for all to read or listen to.
I thought that the author would discuss his experience, but he did not at all. There was the assumption that apparently a prior book was read. This was not the case.
The real story
It was good to hear of Don's understanding of his new normal
New normal will occur.
I wanted to read his first book, "90 minutes in heaven" which I heard was very good but not available on audiobook at the time. This made me and my husband fall asleep.
I was interested in near death experiences, not a book about "The Way to Heaven Club" I am a recovering catholic and not interested in all the religious bull
This book has blessed me beyond what I had ever imagined. As Don Piper tries to put into words what he experienced when he went to Heaven, I found myself so amazed & encouraged by what he shared. I also read 90 Minutes in Heaven which gives more detail of his description of his time in Heaven.
All I know is I just can't wait to experience the beauty, awe and reunion with so many that have gone on before me who are already in the presence of our wonderful God!!! Come, Lord Jesus, come!
"Heaven is Real", a catchy phrase, but just another hook for an author who is full of himself. Spreading the good word is good, but when it is the ONLY way, an exclusive club is formed. The intro sounds good, but that is the only good part I found, the rest is conversion to what Don and Cecil preach.
