Publisher Comments:

As he is driving home from a minister's conference, Baptist minister Don Piper collides with a semi-truck that crosses into his lane. He is pronounced dead at the scene. For the next 90 minutes, Piper experiences heaven where he is greeted by those who had influenced him spiritually. He hears beautiful music and feels true peace.

Back on earth, a passing minister who had also been at the conference is led to pray for Don even though he knows the man is dead. Piper miraculously comes back to life and the bliss of heaven is replaced by a long and painful recovery.

For years Piper kept his heavenly experience to himself. Finally, however, friends and family convinced him to share his remarkable story.

Synopsis:

Get a glimpse of heaven On the way home from a conference, Don Piper's car was crushed by a semitruck 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. 90 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. Now he'd like to share his life-changing story with you. 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. Don Piper is minister of education and single adults at the First Baptist Church in Pasadena, Texas. He has appeared on Christian television and radio programs, writes a weekly newspaper column, and leads conferences and retreats in the United States and abroad. Cecil Murphey has written or coauthored ninety-one books, including his work on the autobiography of Franklin Graham, Rebel with a Cause.

VickiLN, August 16, 2009 (view all comments by VickiLN)
The title of this book is a little misleading. It makes you think the book is about time spent in Heaven, but in fact that is only a short part of the book at the begining. It's more about the stages of recovery that the author went through after a horrible car accident. The disapointment of being sent back to earth, the intense pain caused by his injuries, the depression he went through during his rehabilation. How his life changed not only physically but mentally as well. I could relate so well to what he has written since going through something similar with a loved one. Every mental battle Don Piper went through, my loved one went through as well. This is a wonderful book. It also shows what compassion we have for each other. I think anyone who has gone through a life changing accident (or knows someone who has) should read this book.

Mr. Piper learns he has a higher purpose in living than dying. A beautiful read which frequently made me cry. You will certainly find comfort in this book.

I have personally read this book, and in my opinion it is gorgeous book. I could not stop myself, since I wanted to get to the end. I got this book, after my friend’s death, so it was a great fit to my feelings. I really liked the genre of this book.
