Meet the Author

Richard Sigmund was born on March 19, 1941, in Des Moines, Iowa. His grandfather was praying as Richard was being born, and the Lord told him, "Through him, I will answer prayer." Whose prayer? The prayer of his great-grandfather, who was a Spirit-filled, Jewish, circuit-riding preacher during the Civil War.The Lord first appeared to Richard when he was four years old. As a child, he started preaching in a country Methodist church in Iowa. His grandfather knew healing evangelist Jack Coe Sr., and Rev. Coe brought Richard to Omaha in 1949 to preach. While the boy who became known as "Little Richard" preached, the anointing came upon him, and he saw angels.When he was about nine years old, he presented the gospel before the meetings of world-renowned evangelist and miracle worker A. A. Allen. Richard was with Allen for about ten years; tutors enabled him to maintain his schoolwork while he was on the road. Also during that time, Richard was with evangelist Lee Girard and presented his testimony during William Branham meetings.In his early twenties, Richard had a fruitful ministry for a time in Phoenix, Arizona, and then held tent meetings with considerable success among the Navajo in northern Arizona and in other revival meetings around the country. In 1974, while he was ministering at a small church in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, he was declared dead for eight hours after a traffic accident, during which he had his experiences of heaven and hell.Over the years, Richard has preached the gospel through television programs, radio broadcasts, and speaking engagements. He has been in meetings with Kathryn Kuhlman and Oral Roberts, and he was interviewed by Pat Robertson. Richard has ministered in England, Scotland, Australia, South Africa, Kenya, and many other countries. In South Africa, he followed David Nunn and Morris Cerullo in a special series of meetings. It was Rex Humbard who encouraged him to tell his story of a place called heaven.In the early 1990s, Richard met his wife, Priscilla, a fellow native of Iowa. After living in Texas and Missouri, they returned to Iowa, where their organization, Cleft of the Rock Ministries, is now based. Richard is associated with World Bible Way Fellowship.

    Disappointed

    The author claims he was in a "one-car" accident in which he died for 8 hours and went to heaven. He gives no details about this accident. Only that it did not involve any other cars, there were no eye witnesses, and apparantly he did not crash into anything. hmmm....RED FLAG 1. His descriptions of heaven sound like a combination of passages you read in the Bible and from his imagination. RED FLAG 2.
    He states that he started having "visions" when he was only 4 years old and throughout his life. RED FLAG 3. He started "preaching" when he was only 8 years old and was tutored most of his life. Doesn't sound like a very normal, stable, childhood to me. RED FLAG 4. He didn't marry until he was in his 50's and admitted he had serious marital problems at the time of the accident. Doesn't sound like he was able to have a healthy, stable relationship. RED FLAG 5. His story does not sound like others I have read about near death experiences. No tunnel, no life review, no greeting by loved ones when he first gets there. RED FLAG 6. In an interview I listened to online, he said that Jesus told him he would be raptured before he died. He died in 2010. No rapture. RED FLAG 7. I truly believe he believed everything he wrote. I even felt sorry for him both as a child and an adult. Unfortunately, I believe this man had some kind of mental illness. I don't know if he was schizophrenic, delusional, or what. It is too bad that books like these are allowed to be published without any factual proof. They just end up making Christians look bad and discourage people from a real relationship with God.

    I've been an RN for 18 years - I don't believable this story.

    Too religious for me, thank you. I've been a Christian for 45 yrs, an RN for 18, but sorry, I don't believe this story.
    I was hoping to find out more about my God and more about heaven by reading this book. It did NOT happen for me anyway. By the time I got only to chapter 2, I could no longer trust the author. Maybe I know too much about REAL near-death experiences as an RN. My take on this book, don't waste your time.

    The most detailed description of heavenly events I have ever read!

    I have read other descriptions of heaven but My Time in Heaven is the most detailed of them all and the most fascinating. This is must reading for those who have ever wondered about what goes on in heaven.

    Excellent Book!

    Can't begin to understand what people expect from some one who just wants to share about His experience that is not a renowned author!! People are free to share about there experiences so let's put all judgement aside! For me this book was completely amazing!! I could not put it down until I was done!! I was really impacted by it and saw how God's unfailing love and goodness was in all his creation! We are to pray the Lords prayer "On earth as it is in Heaven" well I can only imagine that's how earth was before the Fall of Man. This book is very easy to understand with the best detail possible that even the simplest person or a child can grasp it's meaning! Many of the people I know were completely transformed by this testimony of Heaven! I so look forward for others to have the same experience I had in reading this incredible book!

    badly Written

    This author is obviously not a writer. He is a preacher and if he speaks anything like he writes, he wouldn't hold my attention. It read like he woke up from a dream, jotted down some notes and then published it. I found the story to be emotionless. I was expecting to feel inspired by the end of the book. I didn't. What bothered me the most was the lack of before and after story. I find it easy to believe that people experience Heaven when they are clinically dead for a short time. I found it easier to believe that this is a fictitious story since he didn't give any real details about the accident, what happened after he "came back", others peoples reactions, and his life after. There are much better accounts of near death experiences. If he really was "dead" for 8 hours and then came back to life as he was being wheeled to the morgue, there would be some GREAT inspiration in that. Don't waste your time on this book.

    Did not "ring true" in my opinion

    I confess I would hate to accuse someone of being false if their experience was in fact 'true' and certainly I have read several testomonial type books; people claiming to have experienced a supernatural experience of visiting Heaven... that I did believe/the author's account. In this case however; "My Time in Heaven" by Richard Sigmund, this account did not 'ring true' for me. One specific part spoke about witnessing the building of homes [or mansions] in Heaven for people the author knew, such as "Jim & Mary" - Husband and wife, while the Bible clearly says there will be NO marriage in Heaven..? Mostly the account felt "concocted" to me, after the author had read books of a similiar vain/nature to have a 'story' to tell to grandiose/exalt himself and stoke his own ego. In my opinion, it was badly written and did not really have anything to say; only "things" that the Author assumed the reader "Wanted to hear". It is not a book I would recommend when there are far better reads out there such as "Flight to Heaven" by Capt. Dale Black as one example. I was actually surprised that it was endorsed so highly by people in the 'faith', when I found it so disappointing and frankly disturbing. Did I miss the anointing on it? You can of course be your own judge and read it for yourself, but I personally won't be recommending this book.

    I can't recommend this book

    No, I'm so sorry that I can't recommend this book. I believe the author is sincere, however, the story itself is not something I was able to embrace. Yet I tried. Believe me, I did try.

    Most wonderful book to read and re-read

    This book is so inspiring. If there were any doubts about the awesome place called heaven, this will dispel any and all doubts. I intend to read this book daily because you can't take it all in with just one reading. It will truly bless you. Don't miss it.
