I read this book about 20 years ago. It was very inspirational to me. This was not a morman book at all. Something I dont understand but this book made me want to live for Jesus Christ. In fact I believe the author after this experience lived for Jesus the rest of His life. Jesus is real and Jesus loves you
The book seemed sound scripturally, till I came to the middle, when it says that some people who die roam & then enter in people when drunk, etc (if that was their addiction). The Bible talks of evil spirits ie demons entering people, not dead human beings doing so! So stopped reading it half ways.
This book doctrinally lines up with Mormon beliefs of the after life. I would not have read it had I known, but it was an interesting glimpse into the ideas of the Mormon faith. I specifically did a search for books on encounters with heaven on Christianbook.com, in hopes they would be biblically and doctrinally sound. I wonder if Christianbook.com realizes they are selling a Mormon based book. Being Christian, I believe in a physical heaven and hell, as opposed to the unbiblical notion that some of us are forever enslaved as demons to the sins that haunted us on earth, and then floating around the earth in the form of ghosts. The book does a good job of describing Jesus' love, His light and the overwhelming peace and joy of being in His presence. This and other Biblical truths captivated me as I wrestled with the decidedly occult teachings being presented. If you want a biblically sound book about heaven, read "Heaven is For Real". I LOVE that book!
This book plays a very important role in my life. I read the Chinese translation in 1980 and I turned from a big head "science worshiper" to a Christian in 1981. I still shared his story even today. A must read book.
this book was one of those life changing events. It conveyed timelessness like never before. It also helped me to accept the unknown as truth without evidence. I consider this book to be a "must read".
