Product Description

When Freddy Vest woke up that morning, there was no hint that it might be his last. It was a good day to rodeo. A scorcher was shaping up in Texas, and he was planning on roping some calves. Just before entering the ring, he suddenly collapsed. He was dead before he hit the ground.

In The Day I Died Freddy shares how he discovered firsthand that heaven is a real place, God does exist, and death is not the end but the beginning of true life. His amazing story, told in the straightforward style of a cowboy, gives you a glimpse of what awaits after death, including freedom from the constraints of time, the awe-inspiring awareness of God, and the unforgettable peace and security that attend His presence.

Publisher's Description

Freddy Vest was on the back of a horse, competing in a calf-roping event in front of a crowd when he suddenly collapsed due to a heart attack. He was dead before he hit the ground.
One moment he was sitting on his horse. The next moment he was somewhere else--somewhere beyond description. He had moved on. Without travel, transport, angelic assistance, or the passage of time he was with Jesus, where he discovered firsthand that heaven is a real place and God is a real person and that death is not the end but the beginning of true life.

In The Day I Died, Vest touches on the transformation from death to heaven and some of the benefits of finding oneself in that place, including:
  • The unforgettable awareness of God’s presence
  • The sense of His immeasurable love
  • The freedom from the constraints of time
  • The ease of communication with the Lord
  • The peace and security that attend His presence
  • The understanding that prayers are instantly heard by God.

    Vest was participating in a rodeo when he fell off his horse. He was dead. Fellow cowboys did CPR continuously for the forty five minutes it took for the ambulance to arrive.

    Vest shares his childhood in a Christian home and how his dream to be a cowboy was birthed. He tells how he veered from the straight and narrow and his return to God. He also reveals the spiritual lessons he learned.

    His experience while physically dead is unlike most others I've read. He didn't see any angels or loved ones but he did see a representation of the prayers of believers. He experienced love from Jesus that was so real he thought of nothing else.

    Vest says dying was the easiest thing he's ever done. It was the shock of being alive again that was hard.

    He writes, “being in heaven with Jesus is an intensely private experience – so private it almost seemed off limits for conversation.” (93) He asked God for guidance on what to do with his experience. He realized God would give him the appropriate message each time. He knows he has something of eternal value to share with others.

    He completes is book by looking at what Scripture says about heaven and other topics and what that means for our Christian lives.

    This is not a book for people who want the latest description of what it is like in heaven. Rather, this book is for those who need reassuring that heaven is more real than anything we can imagine. It's a good book for any Christian who fears death. It would be a good book to give to someone who has lost a loved one (providing that person was a Christian). It would also be a good book to give to an unsaved friend as the eternal importance of faith in Jesus comes across clearly.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
