Publisher's Summary

Is there life after death? After a tragic accident, doctors pronounced Richard Sigmund legally dead. Eight hours later, God miraculously brought him back to life on the way to the morgue. During those hours, God allowed him to experience the glorious beauty, heavenly sounds, sweet aromas, and boundless joys of heaven that await every believer. God then returned him to earth with a mission to tell the world what he saw. You will thrill to Sigmund's eyewitness account of strolling down heaven's streets of gold, seeing angels playing with children, talking with Jesus, meeting with people from the Bible and departed family and friends, seeing the mansions, and much more!

Through Sigmund's testimony, God has restored sight to the blind and hearing to the deaf and has even raised several people from the dead. Also, you will catch a glimpse of the horrifying reality of "the other place" - a place where no one wants to go.

Best Book on visiting Heaven

Would you consider the audio edition of My Time in Heaven to be better than the print version?

I have this book in Audio and also have bought two paper back books to lend out. Everyone who I have lent it to loves it and one Sunday school teacher is using it for her class. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in how live in Heaven will be.

Outstanding account reinforced with scripture

I have read many reputable accounts published
concerning heavenly visits, this one seems to ring true to all other accounts, at the same time, giving different or more in-depth account than most others.
You will be uplifted, especially if you have just lost a loved one to Heaven. It gives great detail in how the new arrivals are welcomed and celebrated by the Father's love.
A must read!

Best Yet

I loved his descriptions of all his experiences. I was listening late at night, and found myself dreaming that I was in Heaven with him. It was so real. Amazing journey!

Be careful with this one

What disappointed you about My Time in Heaven?

If you haven't read the Bible in its entirety at least a couple of times, steer clear of this one. There is so much extrabiblical going on here that I can't possibly fit it all in this review. Of course, in books about NDEs and Heaven, one expects some requisite extrabiblical content that is food for thought, but this brought it to an unprecedented level.

Reading books about Heaven is sort of a guilty pleasure of mine, but this one turned me off to the entire genre for the foreseeable future. I believe that Scripture is completely sufficient, and I believe to the depths of my soul that Heaven is very real. If you believe the content of this book, I certainly don't judge you, but I do disagree strongly. This book reeks to me of utter fabrication. The author forewarns us at the beginning of the book something to the effect that everyone will experience Heaven differently, which is why this work might not match what others have said. Later on in the book, immediately after alleging that Jesus made a pair of six foot, white parrots appear from his hands, the author contends that we might need the help of the Holy Spirit to believe that this act occurred. I both shuddered at the blasphemy and laughed quietly at the absurdity.

If God exists to dole out material wealth and Heaven is 99% human-centric then the author must be spot on. He insists that everyone gets a mansion of varying size with gilded lawn furniture. At some places he seems duplicitous, backpedaling a bit, emphasizing briefly that the best rewards will be for those who didn't want them, yet piling on more of the same in the next paragraph. Well, I don't want any of those material things and it depresses me just thinking about it. Being in God's presence will be enough. I don't think the relentless emphasis on the material is in line with Scripture, either.

The author exalts himself on several occasions, not so subtly. He speaks of how he received accolade for being a child preacher. Even if this were true and I heard it of myself, I would not be comfortable putting that in a book. "Revivals that I had been involved in since I was a child."

Ultimately, this was one of maybe two audio books that I could not finish. I made an effort, but after two and a half hours of it I could not endure any more. If you were able to finish it and, at the end, the author somehow admits that it was only a prediction of what Heaven might be like, then I take it all back.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Something of a different genre. Something a bit more spiritually edifying or at least entertaining.

What didn’t you like about Patrick Lawlor’s performance?

The dialog was just awful. I think Patrick put in a noble effort based on the writing put before him, but ultimately it was just terribly cheesy. The voice of Jesus made me want to turn off the recording several times.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Honestly, I really can't think of any. This book gives Christianity a terrible name. That's saying something, because to me Christianity is a huge part of who I am.

Fraudulent

I read ALOT of NDE books, I had to quit reading this one before the end. I find NDE books a great source of spiritual strength and connectivity. They help calm my anxiety They give me hope and peace, they remind me of Gods love. They remind me why I’m here on earth. BUT there is always going to be fakes who want to make a quick buck ruining it by trying to pull one over on believers. This guy is total full crap In my opinion. There are a lot of clues in this book to his bull shit. I find him to be a wanna be famous evangelist.

A detailed account of heaven

This is a detailed account of the author’s time in heaven with scriptural references of what he saw. I think this is an excellent narration and interesting read of his account.
