Heaven Is Real: Lessons on Earthly Joy-What Happened After 90 Minutes in Heaven
by Don Piper, Cecil Murphey

Penguin Group (USA)
ISBN-13: 9780425226469

So how should we spend our time on Earth? Don Piper, the Minister of Hope who spent 90 minutes in Heaven, brings us God's message.

Hope for the here and now from the multimillion-selling author of 90 Minutes in Heaven.

Millions believe in Heaven. Don Piper's been there. He was pronounced dead after a car accident on January 18, 1989. Ninety minutes later, Piper came back to life with an extraordinary story. His 90 Minutes in Heaven has strengthened the faith of countless people.

When Piper returned to this life, he had a long road back to health, dealing with painful treatments and physical disabilities—the "new normal," as Piper calls it. Still, he had been transformed spiritually and this allowed him not only to cope with his suffering, but to transcend it. Piper found purpose in his pain, he found the message in the mess, and so can anyone else who embraces God's grace in the here and now—as well as the Hereafter.

Don Piper did not return from Heaven alone—he brought the gift of hope back with him. Those who read Heaven Is Real can use what he learned to live the lives God has called them to live.

I have read the book and it is a true testament of God's grace, mercy, and favor He has for His people. A true testimony that you can make it through whatever trials and tribulations that life throws your way as long as you hold on to God's unchanging hand, having faith and believing he will see you through it all.
