90 Minutes in Heaven

My friends, Joy and Sharon, were telling me yesterday about the book, "90 Minutes in Heaven" by Don Piper & Cecil Murphy. The book was published in 2004, but I am just hearing about it. Go figure. In the book, Piper recounts the dramatic story of his ninety-minute journey to heaven. When a truck crushed his Ford Escort in a head-on collision, he was declared dead on scene. But a passing minister sensed that God wanted him to pray, so he reached through the wreckage to clasp Piper's bloody hand while he did so. Piper's incredulous voice speaks of what he believes he saw: heaven's luminous gates through which he could see streets paved with gold, as well as relatives and loved ones who surrounded him yet wouldn't let him pass through because it wasn't his time. For years Piper kept his heavenly experience to himself. Finally, however, friends and family convinced him to share his remarkable story. Piper also has another book that has been released, "Heaven Is Real" . Joy and Sharon raved about this book. It sounded like something I am defiantly interested in and whole heartily believe in. I am anxious to read it. Has anyone else read this book? I am on my way to the bookstore to get it right now!
