Encounter the glories of Heaven, the terrors of hell, and the stunning reality of the unseen world!
When Jim Woodford died, he spent eleven hours in Heaven. When he came back, he was changed forever.
A successful airline pilot and businessman, Jim had it all—a loving family, substantial wealth, and all of the good things that come with it. But none of this was enough to satisfy the emptiness he felt in his heart. He always hungered for something more. And then one day, he died.
Jim was never a religious man. When it came to matters of God and faith, he was ambivalent. But as he lay in the hospital bed, clinically dead for more than 11 hours, his consciousness was transported to the wonders of Heaven and the horrors of hell. When he returned to this world, he brought back the missing piece his soul had been longing for.

A Compelling Story of Transformation and Hope – A Foretaste of Divine Glory As a successful airline pilot and businessman, Jim Woodford had a lot going for him. a challenging career, a large home, an adoring wife, a young family, and financial security. Acquiring another new car, another new aircraft did not fulfill his inner void. Jim longed for something deeper. Jim was never a religious man. Although his wife, Lorraine, was a vibrant Christian, Jim gave very little thought to religion, God, creation, or man’s purpose in life. Matters of faith just were not of much concern. Jim’s inner drive and motivation were acquiring more tangible possessions. Suddenly Jim’s world was spinning out of control. The doctor’s diagnosis was Guillain-Barre ‘disease. He couldn’t work. His livelihood was gone. He has to start selling off assets to keep up his lifestyle, and then one night he ended up in the hospital, his life drained from him. That night he was pronounced clinically dead. Jim describes the next eleven hours as being sub-consciously aware of being transported into the magnitude of heaven’s awesome splendor, and the horror of the deep blackness of the chasm leading to hell. He relates the reality of his extraordinary experience, the intense brightness, and spectacular sights of heaven, and the awe of being face to face with Jesus. Jim’s consciousness returned. His life was changed forever. He had called out to God and found the answer to what his soul had been longing for. Jim is taking the message of his journey across America, sharing the good news of heaven, the grace and mercy of God, and the glory of His presence. Each chapter includes a scripture refuge, profound thought-provoking questions, parallels from Jim’s career as a pilot, and a place for the reader to record or journal an observation, question, personal insight, and a spiritual application.
