the arthur don piper who is also a minister was hit head on by a big semi truck and declared dead in the hospital and this preacher got to spend 90 minutes in heaven and for some remarkable reason was allowed to come back and share what God wanted him to see. I think this is a very inspirational book that will be able to help many people that will not only strenthen their faith but help those that are in times of hurting.this little book is small enough to fit in a persons pocket and has some peaceful Bible verses as well as some special comments by don piper. great gift idea for a friend or family member or soldier serving over seas.

90 minutes in heaven is a very touching story about a preacher named Don Piper who gets in a terrible car wreck. Medical attention was sought as soon as possible, but when they finally arrived, they stated that Don had died instintaneously. However, another preacher stopped at the wreck and felt that he was supposed to pray for Don, even though he was already pronounced dead. So that's exactly what he did. During all of this, Don is getting to experience the amazing glory of Heaven. He gets to see all of his passed away family members and friends, all who welcome him with the purest love he has ever felt. He is awed by Heaven's beauty and its music, and he hadn't even made it through the gate yet! He only made it to the gate, before his 90 minutes in Heaven was up. He returned back to Earth, for reasons he himself did not understand, but he had faith in God, even when it was extremely hard to do so during his gruesome recovery. I absolutely loved this book. It makes you think and reconsider death, and wonder why so many people are afraid of it. It also serves as a little bit of proof for those people who are really struggling with believing in God and all his unseen (from the Earth atleast) glories. But this book is also more than just a story about Heaven. Its also inspirational and motivational. Most of us probably can't even begin to imagine the pain and suffering that Don went through during his recovery. At some points all he wanted to do was die. But he kept pushing through, and now he's changing many people's lives with his story. I would definitely recommend this book to pretty much anybody. It's a very good book and I'm so glad that I chose to read it.

I nearly lost my mom and sister, and my whole life is falling apart. I feel what you feel. :(:(

The description of heaven as experienced by the writer is worth the price of the book. The remainder of the book, however, is the detail of his recovery and experiences following his accident, which is rather ho-hum.

Nice book, nice splot, i can compare this one only with a crossing or the drop's history by Anatoliy Obraztsov. Because both of them were the best books I read this year.

I read this book thinking most of it was going to be about his experience in Heaven. In fact he discovers that he can not enter because it is not his time. He never goes in heaven; but his experience outside the pearly gates are much more than he has words for. It does talk about his recovery most of the book and towards the end it was more difficult to read, However I did get so much from this book. It shows us no matter where we are in life we can always learn more. Anyone has the ability to accept God into their heart and go to heaven, but that doesn't mean we cant learn more. I give it 5 stars because of the learning experience and excellent story.

Seems like a short visit to heaven, and a long recovery, of which seemed more of a "poor me" cry than much else.
