A Message

Usually I don’t read autobiographies.  Usually I refuse to spend more than fifty cents for a book at a garage sale.   Something about this book spoke to me…I picked this book up twice and set it down twice, the third time I picked it up  I decided I would part with a whole dollar for it.  It was like the book  was hollering "BUY ME." I didn’t even offer the lady less for the book…it was the only thing I purchased at that particular sale in West Fargo.
I read and finished this book within 18 hours of purchasing it… 90 minutes in Heaven by Don Piper with Cecil Murphy.  It is about a Pastor who is in a car accident, he dies and spends 90 minutes in heaven.  Another Pastor prays for him, he is alive again..and he isn’t real happy about it either.  He questions everything in his life…it is a story of hope and inspiration.  I enjoyed it, it was a page turner.  It is not real "Churchy"..with quote after quote of Bible verses, there are just  a few to support the authors thoughts.
It is also a story about the power of prayer and prayer warriors.  I believe that God answers all prayers..sometimes we just don’t like  the answers…I would prefer my answers written in Hebrew..clear cut and precise..but then I would need a translator.
Heaven, yes it is a story about heaven.  I found the authors description comforting and much like I have always envisioned it.
Far Guys Grandma H once told me that "Heaven will be like one big party, a celebration like no other."  I have no doubt that she will be waiting to welcome me to that party.
Far Guy and I have great discussions all the time about death and dying and heaven. I have no fear, he has lots of fears.  Last night he asked me if he could read my book…he is not much of a reader..I look forward to the discussions we will have if he makes it all the way through this one. 
This books copyright is 2004, so it is a little old, but the message remains timeless:)

    Ya well, I’m scared my guardian angel is going to beat the crap out of me.

    Sounds like a book to add to the list.

    I read this book sometime last year and I agree that it is very inspiring, written by an obviously committed Christian man. It far surpasses some of the very “oddball” descriptions of heaven that I have glanced at and put down because they were so weird. This one is definitely a real experience narrated by a totally real person who was urged, though reluctant, to share his experience.
