Overview

AMAZING True story of a young boys fight for life beginning in his mothers womb and his incredible experiences in both heaven and hell.

Desperation for a miracle has a way of bringing people together-even from different religions!

Neal Pylant, along with his son Christopher, shares the incredible true story of how he and his wife, both from different religious backgrounds, embraced Christianity while pursuing a miracle for their terminally ill son.

The couple quickly realized that they were dealing with more than physical sickness. They were thrust into a battle where a spiritual enemy launched an all-out assault on their child. Though the boy died, heaven prevailed, life returned to his body, and he received a mandate to fulfill God's will on earth.

In this stirring account, you will see:

  • Glimpses into the afterlife from a near-death experience
  • The supernatural power of faith
  • Perseverance for breakthrough
  • Miracles at every turn

Experiencing A Touch from Heaven stirs you to believe for the impossible and reminds you of God's great faithfulness towards His people.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

At four years old, Christopher Pylant was diagnosed with a massive, inoperable brain tumor. Every physician his parents consulted had agreed that there was no hope of survival. Little Christopher did die, but heaven brought him back. This book, written by him and his father Neal, tells the story of a healing that brought a family together in miraculous ways. Faith-strengthening testimony.

    A Remarkable Journey of Faith in the Midst of Tests at Every Tur

    A Remarkable Journey of Faith in the Midst of Tests at Every Turn

    “A Touch from Heaven” is the amazing story of Christopher Pylant, his complex brain surgery, his account of visits to heaven, his healing, and his parent’s astonishing faith. 

    Neal Pylant and Carol Zinz made their wedding vows in her parents’ home in, Baltimore, Maryland on May 19, 1973, before over sixty guests. Rabbi Shusterman officiated. Neal and Carol came from families of very different religious traditions and teachings. 

    Although Neal took seriously the need to father a son, “a seed for the next generation, a legacy” he was casual in the practice of living out his Christian faith, but strong in his conviction that God would provide the seed. In January of 1981 Christopher O’Neal Pylant was born, God’s answer to the promised seed.

    In young Christopher’s third year it was discovered and confirmed by medical professionals in the field of neurology that he had an inoperable brain tumor. Devastated the Pylant’s faced trial after trial and test after test. They tenaciously held to the faith that God would spare Christopher’s life and heal him. “A Touch from Heaven” is their story. A story of  Carol’s conversion and Neal’s recommitment to his childhood faith.

    Beautifully written, this journey of faith is incredible, a dramatic, unforgettable testimony of a growing faith in a miraculous, loving God.  Highly recommended.

     A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

    I just read an amazing book called "A Touch of Heaven"

    I just read an amazing book called "A Touch of Heaven"  It is about a couple who wanted a boy to pass on their name for the next generation. They were blessed to have a beautiful baby boy named Christopher (the co-author of this book) . It tells the story of the trials they went through when Christopher was diagnosed with a brain tumor at a very young age.  This is a book that once you start you will not be able to put it down.  They share their innermost heart and emotions and how they see a miracle happen.  So if you like a book that keeps your attention then this is the book for you.  Cat K

    A wonderful tory of my uncle and wifes strong faith

    A book that shows how two people of different faths can actually come together in one spirit. Christopher has become a remarkable young man who also has been greatly touched by Gods hands alone. This was my uncles written legacy and his purpose in life was o bring others closer to God with his and his families story.
