90 Minutes in Heaven: A True Story of Death & Life by Don Piper, Cecil Murphey

On the Way home from a conference, Don Piper's car was crushed by a semi truck that crossed into his lane. Medical personnel said he died instantly. While his body lay lifeless inside the ruins of his car, Piper experienced the glories of heaven, awed by its beauty and music. Ninety minutes after the wreck, while a minister prayed for him, Piper miraculously returned to life on earth with only the memory of inexpressible heavenly bliss. His faith in God was severely tested as he faced an uncertain and grueling recovery. 90 Minutes in Heaven offers a glimpse into a very real dimension of God's reality. It encourages those recovering from serious injuries and those dealing with the loss of a loved one. The experience dramatically changed Piper's life, and it will change yours too.

The book states in the beginning that this is his story. It is amazing to read about heaven and then continue to read how he struggled through his recovery, knowing what his after life was going to be. I read the book in 2 days, I couldn't put it down. the book also helped me confirm what heaven is all about.

Let's keep this short: if you don't believe in the afterlife, this book will have you thinking; if you do believe in the afterlife, this book will have you rejoicing.

The 90 minutes in heaven refers to the length of time he was dead here on Earth. It's obvious that time would go by quickly in heaven, so he didn't have a lot to relay to us. The title of the book is definitely not misleading. This book is so encouraging. It made me appreciate my life a whole lot more and not take advantage of people or things. Loved it.

A fabulous book and a must-read for anyone who¿s lost a loved one and prays for their salvation and happiness. The story is gripping, and readers will have a hard time putting it down. And even though Piper had an unbelievable experience, he reminds us that he¿s a human being just like you or me¿one who sins, makes mistakes, questions God and simply wants to give up. The story evolves perfectly, concluding with profound insight, hope and promise.

I highly recommend the book 90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper and Cecil Murphey. To say that this is a spectacular read would not do this book justice. It is one of great wonder, mixed with a little suspense, and the comfort of hope and peace. For anyone afraid of dying, and particularly what happens afterward, this book is perfect. I would encourage you to read this and be drawn into Don Piper¿s personal account of what happened to him as he vividly describes his life altering experience of dying and coming back to life again. Piper¿s accident was in 1989, and it has taken this long for him to candidly tell the story of being pronounced dead at the scene of his accident, his journey in heaven, and then 90 minutes later being brought back to life again only to struggle in intense pain, and intense emotions of regret and depression. Then finally the humbling revelation that his experience was not all in vain, but one that he could use to benefit and help others, and to glorify God. I started reading this book on a flight from the Midwest to California for a three day business trip, and I could not put it down. By the time I returned home, I had completely read it and was recommending it to others. If you'd like to view an excerpt of Piper¿s interview you can search the web by typing in Don Piper or the title 90 Minutes in Heaven. This awesome book is a collaboration with writer and speaker, Cecil Murphey, who has written and co-authored over 104 books, some of which are being made into movies. Murphey has written with such personalities as Franklin Graham, B.J. Thomas and Shaun Alexander. If I enjoy a particular author, I always try finding more of that author¿s works. I¿m sure there are many readers who do the same, so if you'd like to learn more about Cecil Murphey, or find more books written or co-authored by him simply type his name into your search engine.

This was one of the most interesting reads I had. couldn't put it down.

The book starts with an terrible accident, then there is a chapter about the pastor's visit to heaven (short but very interesting) and the rest of the book is about his recovery, the acceptance of his new physical limitations and what he learned from God throughout it. It isn't over-the-top preachy. It isn't very long, it only takes a few hours to read.

I was expecting not to like this book, but ended up finding it to be quite compelling. I especially like that the author did not "sugar-coat" his circumstances. Even though a minister, he admitted when he acted like a an ass, which served to increase the authenticity and believability of his story.

90 Minutes in Heaven, written by Don Piper with Cecil Murphey is truly an inspirational guide to life. The true story of the death and life of Don Piper is a phenomenal book to live by. Don Piper and Cecil Murphey have written an extraordinary book that not only answers our questions here on Earth about Heaven, but expresses every feeling and obstacle that Don has to overcome. While recovering from the accident in the hospital, ordained minister Don Piper faces many hardships and pain barley tolerable to live with. At times all he wants is to leave his life behind here on Earth, and return back to Heaven. Though, all the troubles he acquires over the time after the accident and his journey to Heaven, he becomes thankful of the little things in life. He lives by faith and God's love, and now explains the wonders of Heaven to all, in his book, written with Cecil Murphey. Don Piper writes about his amazing victories, triumphs, and accomplishments of his life back on Earth, after he ventures to Heaven. Reading his inspiring book obligates me to take of advantage of everything I do have; realizing that when I'm facing a difficult time in life; God is always looking upon us, cradling us in His very hands. Don Piper and Cecil Murphey have proficiently mastered creating an amazing novel that will have you on the edge of your seat as you turn each page.

I have been telling people that I knew in my heart that there was life after death. My husband died 9 years ago and 2 weeks before he died he was talking to his mother(Who had been dead for 12 year) as though she were beside him. He told her he would join her in 2 weeks. He died 2 weeks later. He had not moved for a week and he raised his hand and said clearly "MOM" and died.I know in my heart she was coming to walk him into heaven.

I found the book to be very long and repetitive. It focused more on Don's pain and recovery than his experience in Heaven.
amulet4good More than 1 year ago
I read this one non-stop because it was so true-to life. Ilearned that life is fragile and not garunteed to last. Long or short it's about loving and sharing.

Oh my! How do I begin to review the best book ever wrote. I have encouraged everyone to read this book. I have always been a Christian and I have always believed that I will go to Heaven when I die, but after reading 90 Minutes in Heaven, my heart just melted. The things this preacher went through and is alive to write about it is amazing. There is no way anyone could read this book and say there is no God. This book has me so excited about seeing the Pearl Gates and seeing my Savior.

I happened across this book never realizing what an impact it would have on my life esp. spiritually. I have struggled with my own religious beliefs and this came to me at a time when I was having a lot of doubt. This strengthened my beliefs and changed my outlook on life. I have shared this book with many friends of all different religions and everyone gets something meaningful from it.

What a friend we have in Don Piper. He is to be commended for his selflessness in comforting others with this truly uplifting story. This book changed my own personal spirtual beliefs.
