On a Wednesday morning in 1989 Pastor Don Piper died in a head-on collision, awaking in Heaven where he experienced the glories he had long preached about. Ninety minutes later, prayer brought him back to life, and the next time he awoke it was to a world of unimaginable pain, depression and anger. This is the story of Piper's healing and his journey to finding the answer to his most agonizing question: Why had God let him live?
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.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm an army brat by birth. I have a degree in Broadcasting and spent 14 years on Radio and TV. I've been in the full-time ministry for 19 years. I am terminally in love with the game of baseball!
What was your motivation behind this project? Self-defense! I've lived the last 15 years of my life frustrating people I have met because I could never spend enough time with them explaining my encounter with Heaven. Everyone always wanted to know MORE than I had time to share. "90 Minutes In Heaven: A True Story of Life and Death" answers those questions.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Very simple: 1. To know Heaven is real and you can go there. 2. That those who knew Christ and preceeded us will be waiting at the gate. 3. That God still works miracles. 4. That there are some things that happen in this life which permanently change us. And, we must embrace that change by discovering a "new normal." 5. Tragic circumstances and great pain can give way to amazing ministry opportunities!
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I read all kinds of materials. I love humor, op- ed pieces, riveting stories, and nostalgia. My favorite subjects are fascinating people, Americana, and the Glory of Christ. I enjoy reading everything from Yancey to Lucado to Spurgeon.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Yes, Heaven is utterly real and absolutely breathtaking. God is still in the business of miracles. God wants us to ceaselessly share our faith in word and deed.
