Overview

The afterlife is a breath away—and now you can confidently prepare for it with help from Don Piper, the man who has seen it firsthand.
 
Millions have found inspiration in Don Piper’s 90 Minutes in Heaven.  Piper’s extraordinary account of spending ninety minutes in Heaven, after being pronounced dead at the scene of a car accident, continues to strengthen the faith of countless people.
 
Since publishing his inspirational bestseller in 2004, Don Piper has traveled the world spreading his message of faith—certain faith—in the promise of Heaven. In Heaven Is Real, Piper shared how life’s trials can be turned into spiritual lessons, when we are open to the certainty of God’s grace and love.
 
Now, with a message of hope and love, Getting to Heaven draws from both Don Piper’s amazing personal experience and the words of the Gospel to offer a set of “departing instructions”—helping us to face the inevitable battles ahead, prepare for eternal life, and, starting today, live a happy, fulfilling, purposeful life on Earth while making ourselves ready for the glory of Heaven.
