    Inspiring, challenging, funny & poignant

    We've all wondered what it would be like to die...but few people can speak with any authority on the subject. In 'The Day I Died', Steve Sjogren tells his story of a simple medical procedure gone horribly wrong. With a story telling gift honed while conducting 8 worship services each weekend, he weaves the reality of a death experience, gut wrenching emotional conflicts, and goofy situations like trying to ride a motorcycle with his legs in braces. Unlike many pastors, Steve has spent most of his time with people who don't share his outlook on life. As a result, he asks many of the questions that the 'regular guy' would ask when his life falls apart. The answers he finds will surprise you. I would highly recommend this book - no matter where you are on your spiritual journey. Whether you're nearing the end of your years and are wondering about what it's like to slip from this life to the next or you're young and think you have decades ahead of you, 'The Day I Died' has much to say about life.

    Dying to Change Our Lives

    The Day I Died Steven Sjogren's intense ordeal in which he goes in for a simple surgery and leaves with a new out look on life. For me reading has never come easy but the words in this book practically jumped off the pages. After his near death experience Sjogren, with a little help from God, starts to make some realizations about how fast pace his life is and how much of it he was truly missing. His adaptation of Aesop's the turtle and the hare is a great way to show how running through life is now way to go and sometimes you need to slow down and let everything catch up with you.
    This inspirational story has helped me discover much about myself and my relationships with others. Since reading it I have truly tried to become the turtle and enjoy life especially during the hectic times as a graduating senior. I hope this book effects as many people as it has effected me. I have never felt as strong in my friendships, family ties, and above all my faith than I do now after reading The Day I Died. I strongly recommend this book for anyone having trouble with their faith or just looking for a great read.

    Chat with a DEAD MAN!

    This is a rare opportunity to listen to a DEAD MAN! Refreshingly UN-religious, Sjogren 'tells it like it is'.Sjogren was considered DEAD when his heart stopped for over 7 minutes! He actually heard the doctors ask his wife's permission to 'pull the plug' and begin harvesting organs. In this book, Sjogren doesn't tell of a 'light at the end of a tunnel' or a 'wonderful place where everyone's happy'. What he does do, however, is describe - in his pithy, honest way - what it was like to die, meet God, and hear what God had to say. You'll be surprised! I buzzed through the book in about 2 hours . . . about the time it takes to share a couple cups of coffee and chat with a good friend . . . and that's the very sense I had while reading the book!

    Inspiring

    The book was very good. It was not what I expected, however, I found it to be inspiring and encouraging. It is not so much about death, but about living. Excellent!

    His death changed my life

    In this book Steve Sjorgen tells an unforgettable story about "life after death." It is a story about how he went to the hospital for what some people might call a routine surgery, when something goes terribly wrong. Steve talks about how this experience changed his life in every way. While Steve is in the hospital he talks to God who tells him that he needs to change the way he lives. Steve uses great references in his book that you will be able to use throughout your life. His experiences are life changing to not only him but also to the people who read his book. As a high school senior on my way to college next year, this book helped me to put more into my relationships and listen more to my family and friends. It also taught me to slow down in life and to be more like the "turtle." Steve died to become a better person, and how he is using his book to pass on what he learned.

    This book is awesome!!!

    Sjogren wrote a great book detailing the supernatural experiences relating to dying on an operating table. He sheds light on an aspect of life and death which most of us are very curious about, while remaining grounded and sane in his approach. Reading this book I felt like the author was someone who wanted to tell his story for my benefit. He adds lessons learned about the important things in life which are inspiring. If the topic of ¿what comes after death?¿ intrigues you then this is a must have!

    Skeptics: Prepare to change your mind!

    Skeptical about life after death? You won¿t be for long when you read this! There is a lot of garbage on the shelves about NDOBES (Near Death Out of Body Experiences). This book stands out among them first as credible, second as creative, and third as profound. It is profound because this Sjogren fellow has a solid reputation as a legitimate leader and is a well-published author. His description of what happened when he died even surprised him about what he believed about the other side. This is NOT like other books you may have read about the subject. This book is well written, enjoyable to read, and it just might impact your life in a deeper way than you can imagine at the moment. This is not a flaky ¿crossing over¿ or fortuneteller¿s tale. This is something very different ¿ compellingly real. I am usually very skeptical about this kind of stuff, but this book rings true. Sjogren¿s work is something you do not want to miss. You will regret it if you don¿t buy this now. Brad Summers, Pittsburgh

    Wonderful book

    This book will grab your heart and have you convinced that there is life beyond death. This life is not all there is. Steve writes on an important subject that can bring great comfort to the one who is very unsure about the experience of death. The book is written in a biographical style with Steve sharing many of his inmost thoughts and how his life was changed by his experience of dying and coming back. You must read this book!

    This book was a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT! What a waste of money. There

    This book was a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT! What a waste of money. There is only two sentences in this whole
    book about God or Heaven. The entire book is about the author. Very Sorry about his accident,but the info on 
    this book claims or leaves you with the impression the author had a lot to tell you about God and Heaven.
    To me two sentences is not even a little bit.

    Don't Bother Reading this!

    I am very interested in near-death experience books as I find them spiritual and uplifting. That being said, I was very sorry I wasted my money on this book. It was less about the death experience than the author's self-interest and self-promotion. God, or any message from him, is sadly lacking. Don't bother with this one.

    A book of determination

    Good illustrations of grit and determination following surgery gone horribly wrong. But very light on the discussion of views of heaven, for which I purchased the book. I am eagerly searching for experiences that enrich the beliefs I already have, and there have been some good ones. This was just not as definitive as I had hoped. Still, a good read.

    Eye Opening!

    After reading this book, I took a long look at my life and my priorities. It opened my eyes to what was really important in life. It made me realize what great joy was in my life, if I just stopped and paid attention.

    Are You kidding me!

    Steve has once again hit it out of the ball park! This book is an amazing journey into a place we all dream about at some time or another. Steve somehow peers through the pages and before you know it, it grabs you until have read this book in one sitting. You can't put it down-it challeneges you on so many different levels, and honestly I want to be a better person because of it. I don't care if you are new on this journey or have been on it along time, you will be CHANGED!

    Authentic Miracle

    What a captivating story of a real miracle. The book made me reflect on friends, what is important in life and if today will the day that I die, am I living like it? I hope that you enjoy Day I Died for the amazingly vulnerable story full of life and death lessons.
