Product Description

Dr. Mary Neal was a devoted wife and mother of four children, a talented and successful orthopedic surgeon, and an experienced outdoor enthusiast, when the unthinkable happened on a vacation in 1999. Mary and friends were kayaking on the Fuy River in Chile, when her kayak became trapped under a waterfall. Despite her and her companions efforts to dislodge the boat, Mary lost consciousness and drowned before they could pull her body to shore.
During the time she lost consciousness and died, Mary experienced a taste of heaven that few in this world have known. She was led by heavenly beings and saints who had gone before. She saw and felt beauty and peace like she had never known, and approached the entrance to eternity. However, it was not time for her to enter, and she was sent back to the world.
To Heaven and Back is the story of Dr. Neal's spiritual journey, including the extraordinary account of that fateful day in Chile. She also chronicles her physical recovery, and the many miraculous events that accompanied her return to health. Her remarkable story is an inspiration and comfort to those needing reassurance of the presence and love of our incomparable God.

Publisher's Description

A kayak accident during a South American adventure takes one woman to heaven — where she experienced God’s peace, joy, and angels — and back to life again.
 
 
In 1999 in the Los Rios region of southern Chile, orthopedic surgeon, devoted wife, and loving mother Dr. Mary Neal drowned in a kayak accident. While cascading down a waterfall, her kayak became pinned at the bottom and she was immediately and completely submerged. Despite the rescue efforts of her companions, Mary was underwater for too long, and as a result, died.
 
To Heaven and Back is Mary’s remarkable story of her life’s spiritual journey and what happened as she moved from life to death to eternal life, and back again. Detailing her feelings and surroundings in heaven, her communication with angels, and her deep sense of sadness when she realized it wasn’t her time, Mary shares the captivating experience of her modern-day miracle.
 
Mary’s life has been forever changed by her newfound understanding of her purpose on earth, her awareness of God, her closer relationship with Jesus, and her personal spiritual journey suddenly enhanced by a first-hand experience in heaven.  To Heaven and Back will reacquaint you with the hope, wonder, and promise of heaven, while enriching you own faith and walk with God.

    I read this entire book and her account does not line up with the scriptures; when in heaven, she did not see anything but etheral beings. She did not see Jesus or angels or mansions, or the holy city. She did not mention Jesus Christ nor point anyone to the fact that eternal life is only found in Jesus Christ and receiving Him as Lord. I would not buy it again - I had seen her on a Christian program and was very disappointed. Hope she gets truly born again.

    Even though a doctor wrote it, she put it in simple language form.

    Sorry. I don't believe her story. She writes only 2 pages of her trip to heaven in which she states that its in the tunnel that we have our final say in whether we are going to chose Jesus or not, which I don't believe is Biblical. We make our decision BEFORE we die. Then she puts so much political dogma in the book, I am skeptical about what her motive is.

    I have heard a lot about these to heaven and back stories, and I was very curious to read one; upon seeing one on Blogging for Books, I requested it, and have found it very interesting. As usual, God used it to teach and show me various things, some relating to the book, and some that were just from Him that merely struck up because of a sentence in "To Heaven and Back". This book, by Mary C. Neal, was fascinating, and real. Events that happened in her life, as it is with all our lives I believe, were evidently conducted by God. He has His Holy hand on and in everything, and it is amazing to see His ultimate power and glory revealed to us. I was pleased with this book, and glad I read it. As with just about every book, there were one or two things that I maybe didn't agree fully on (believe systems, etc) it was such a thought-provoking book, and I enjoyed it.
