So how should we spend our time on Earth? Don Piper, the Minister of Hope who spent 90 minutes in Heaven, brings us God's message.

Hope for the here and now from the multimillion-selling author of 90 Minutes in Heaven.

Millions believe in Heaven. Don Piper's been there. He was pronounced dead after a car accident on January 18, 1989. Ninety minutes later, Piper came back to life with an extraordinary story. His 90 Minutes in Heaven has strengthened the faith of countless people.

When Piper returned to this life, he had a long road back to health, dealing with painful treatments and physical disabilities-the "new normal," as Piper calls it. Still, he had been transformed spiritually and this allowed him not only to cope with his suffering, but to transcend it. Piper found purpose in his pain, he found the message in the mess, and so can anyone else who embraces God's grace in the here and now-as well as the Hereafter.

Don Piper did not return from Heaven alone-he brought the gift of hope back with him. Those who read Heaven Is Real can use what he learned to live the lives God has called them to live.

.... that no one can enter into Heaven unless they accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. For those of you that find that offensive, look it up for yourself. As Christians, we call your denial a convicted spirit. Once you accept Jesus that conviction goes away and you will know Gods love and peace and all the blessings that are awaiting you. Dont knock it till you try it!

The book's content completely supported its title, "Heaven Is Real". It also contained great connections to the first book, "Ninety Minutes In Heaven". Don Piper has lead an incredible life with an amazing journey. It witnesses to all who read his books. "Heaven Is Real" completes the journey the reader began in "Ninety Minutes In Heaven". I highly reccomend it. You won't be able to put it down!

One of the reasons that the book 90 Minutes In Heaven by Don Piper with Cecil Murphy appealed to me is stemmed from part of my intent to increase my understanding of both traditional religion and new age ideas on heaven towards my intent of writing under a username (that definitely is not going to involve the word star). Some of the strong and compelling points of this book; Piper goes into what he saw and felt during his time in heaven for chapter two. Pages 78-79 capture his truth of admitting that there was a time where he wanted to go back to heaven and found little comfort in various psychiatrists trying to talk to him on how he was doing. Pages 130-131 and 134-135-Piper’s discussion with a man who was one of the many who helped pray him back to life and their sense of spiritual urgency. Piper also recalls that whoever might have been holding his hand during the car crash was a benevolent spirit from heaven (i.e. maybe an angel). Pages 148-152; Other members of Don Piper’s family recall what went through their minds and hearts during and in the aftermath of the events surrounding his recovery (i.e. Piper’s children Nicole, Joe, and Chris as well as his wife Eva). Pages 166-167; Piper shares how he met his wife Eva at Louisiana State University and the dramatic story of how a person at of his events unexpectedly died soon after at just 20 years of age (to the shock of multiple students who knew him). The only catch is that there are only some pages out of the 207 page book that covers his time in heaven, however it was still a gripping read. There is more that is tempting to say about this book, but my conscience is guiding me to put aside my own personal spiritual biases out of consideration for the author, other reasons, and a major confession on one major reason why; I admit that I controversially believe in the idea of various realms within heaven and hell even with my interest in the new age and occult arenas, but I believe that there are spirits that are allowed to ascend from the lower darker realms (i.e. the realms in what is called hell) after a period of time depending on the person’s soul and intent to spiritually grow (kind of how a reformed criminal is allowed out of prison after showing the potential to change, but my heart and conscience is guiding me to avoid publicly sharing more within this review). However, I’m still grateful to have come across this book because it helped remind me that I’m more than how I feel on my human ego side when it comes to sometimes feeling prejudged based on my perceived work in progress intelligence/progressing wisdom and a reminder to instead be more grateful/self-confident for what I already have (in addition, the book served as a healing reminder for me to more carefully have my spiritual life be more of a prominent guide as I pursue certain career goals).

I borrowed this book from my public library and listened to the Unabridged book on CD as I read it. I like the way Piper repeatedly references the "new normal." While events in my life are certainly vastly different from his, it certainly helped me to put into perspective the bridges I have had to cross. It is a perfect companion book to his NINETY MINUTES IN HEAVEN. I recommend reading 90 MINUTES first,then this book. I feel both books are must-reads.

I couldn't finish the book. Its implication that only those who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour will be admitted to heaven was completely offensive to me. It is an evangelical diatribe couched as a feel-good book about the promise of heaven. Totally obnoxious.
