Product Description

A deadly medical mistake sent a navy sailor to the presence of Jesus in heaven. He returned from his near-death experience with new eyes to see the kingdom of heaven in this life. After returning to life, he couldn’t forget the memory of that vibrant place—and, most of all, the loving words and touch of Jesus. For years Steve Musick kept his amazing story to himself, afraid no one would believe or understand it.

At last Steve is ready to tell the story of his journey of a lifetime—two lifetimes. In Live After Heaven you’ll learn the secret of bringing heaven to earth in your everyday world, and how to nurture a relationship with God so real and intimate that you’ll feel his nearness as strongly as Steven did.

Endorsements

"I am personally more interested in life before death than life after, but Steve has done a marvelous job bridging the two. I found this book relevant and helpful." - WILLIAM PAUL YOUNG, author of The Shack

"When my wife and I first met Steve Musick, we had a quiet hunch that this man had something in his life that put him in a rare category. We could not figure it out until he shared all of his story with us. He is a man of unusual depth, care, honesty, and relational brilliance-qualities that I know come from what you will read about here. Having been invited to be his whole-life mentor, I trust his story in every detail. He relives his time with Jesus daily and shares it through every encounter he has with others. One caution: prepare for your own life to experience some welcome, needed change and growth as you encounter Jesus in these pages of deep truth and life-giving love." - WES ROBERTS, founder/master mentor, Leadership Design Group

"My dear friend Steve Musick is not an angel, but he is an ambassador sent back to us from 'Our Father which art in heaven' to show-and-tell us what we've been missing here 'in earth, as it is in heaven.' Reading this book will give you a window to look through and a map to follow so you can experience your own moments in life when heaven touches earth." - DENNIS TURNER, founder and lead pastor of Christ Church, Wichita, Kansas

"As I read Life After Heaven, I happened to be mourning the loss of my dear father-in-law, Cowboy Ken, who joined his Savior in the coming world, a world described in gorgeous detail by Steven Musick. I found deep comfort in Steven's eyewitness account as I imagined my loved ones experiencing the rich, saturated sensations and fathomless love and peace in heaven. But this book goes beyond just describing heaven. It encourages, energizes, and brings zest, power, and hope to us in the here and now. I find myself watching and waiting for 'bubbles of heaven,' the 'beautiful closeness of the kingdom of heaven,' to break through and change everything. This is a book of radical comfort and outrageous hope." - LORILEE CRAKER, New York Times, CBA, and ECPA best-selling author of My Journey to Heaven with Marv Besteman and Anne of Green Gables, My Daughter, and Me

"People like Steven Musick telling of visits to heaven always raise my Missouri-bred skepticism. But I remember Paul's visit recounted in 2 Corinthians 12:1-9 or John's visit in the Revelation and look to the results of the story. Musick's is to make God's presence all the more real here on earth. He tells powerful stories, 'bubbles of heaven,' times when God's love meets earth's needs. There is much wisdom in the story: 'Poverty in God's kingdomÂ…is tightly holding on to what you're supposed to give away.' The blandness of worldly living is overcome by the personal presence of God who is Emmanuel, promising 'Lo, I will be with you always.' Ponder prayerfully with Bible and heart open."

- GERRY BRESHEARS, professor of systematic theology, Western Seminary, Portland

"I am fascinated with the stories of those who have experienced heaven, but I'm often left feeling disappointed after reading books of others' experiences of heaven. Life After Heaven certainly did not disappoint! Steven R. Musick's book left me feeling satisfied and renewed. I can truly say it's the very best book I've read on this topic, and I've read quite a few!" - LINDSAY ANDREWS, Blogging for Books reviewer

"Scrap what you know about to-heaven-and-back stories. At least if the ones you know are silly and saccharine. Steven's account of his time in 'That Place' is raw, credible, and profound. Most important, it will inspire you to draw closer to God-and to fill earth with heaven's light." - DREW DYCK, senior editor of CTPastors.com and author of Yawning at Tigers

    If you read "The Shack" by Paul Young, I believe you'll like this book as well, the only difference being, this one is based on real life and not Fiction. It starts with Steven's story of childhood and the emotional struggles and hang-ups he endured because of family issues. It goes into how God revealed Himself to Steven to bring healing and restoration, he life was never the same. Also, It goes on to give a brief view of Heaven as God revealed it to Steven, and explain how God's Presence and Power work in a person's ministry to bring healing and hope to others.

    I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review. I would recommend this book for those who need hope and healing and were blessed by reading "The Shack"by Paul Young.

    Heaven.

    It's something all of us want to believe exists and even hope that we will enter into if we die after this life on earth. There have been numerous books written from those who have died and come back, all conveying similar experiences. So what would make any other book different? I would challenge you to read, Life After Heaven by Steven R. Musick and see how you feel after you read it.

    Like all the other books, Steven R. Musick did die and went to heaven. First entering through the tunnel of light and entering into what he believes is heaven. He walked with a man who he believes was Jesus and discussed all the things that had happened in his life up to the point of his death and how God worked in situations he may not have recognized. He conveyed to Steven that it's not really about what good we do for others but how God can use any and all circumstances in our life to further His plan in our lives and those whom our lives come into contact with, like ripples in the pond. Sadly Jesus told him that he wasn't there to stay and within minutes was back in his old body away from heaven and Jesus. He explains it simply as "the experience to taking a kid to Disneyland, letting him ride just one ride, and then tossing him back in the car without explanation, a profound sense of loss." In fact Steven would go on to keep his life after death experience a secret for almost a decade, but during those years, he attempted to discover why Jesus told him he wouldn't stay.

    When he returned to his body, he discovered that the years in front of him would be the ultimate test f his faith as he suffered from a decrease in lung capacity by 60% and every breath of air would be a truly gift from God. All his future plans were simply re-written and now he would have to find a new beginning with his wife and soon to be family of sons, ones he simply couldn't play with due to his own physical limitations. He wondered why his prayers would go unheeded by God for healing. "Many people - and I was one of them - equate God's work of healing us or giving to us with the prosperity gospel. That's a false notion that God exists to benefit us and give us what we want. That couldn't be further from the truth. But an opposite mistake of equal danger is to think that God is dome kind of sour pragmatist who only gives something to you with divine strings attached. God does not exist for our appeasement. Nor does he find some excuse outside of pure love to give something good to us. He is a father. He loves to give things to his kids. Things we need. Things that make us joyful. Things that are good."(pg 113).

    I received Life After Heaven by Steven R. Musick compliments of WaterBrook Multnomah Publishers. This goes beyond all the other books I have read on life after death on those believers and even non-believers that have seen what they believe is Heaven. This takes things a bit further. What does someone who has seen Heaven do when they come back? Are they changed for the better by having seen eternity? I believe that Steven has taken on God's challenge as he explains, "The economics of the kingdom of heaven are upside down: giving is better than getting, death can be life, life as the world sees it can be death, loss can be gain, gain can be loss. God's kingdom often flips the way we do little things upside down. In our culture we insulate ourselves in all kinds of ways. We cocoon. When the situation calls for it, God's volunteers needs to be able to strip away the cultural things to keep people apart." (pg 135).

    I found myself challenged to really take my own personal relationship with God to a much deeper level than simply going through the bland Christian lifestyle, going to church, reading the Bible and praying when I remembered. This made me want to really understand what it means to connect with God more intimately and understand why I am here at all. "In terms of life on earth, I still have a retirement account," as Steve would say. "My purpose is to make my death worth living for. I mourn for what we're missing here on earth. I mourn for the things God offers here that we somehow choose not to appropriate. I mourn for the fullness we ignore, the love we don't recognize, the power and joy just waiting to be picked up by us. I would like to help everyone I can to receive a full measure of what's offered."( pg 141). I encourage you to pick this book up today and see for yourself what God's calling you to do with your life. You just might be surprised at what you find tucked inside and the reason I give this a 5 out of 5 stars.
