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. Large print edition.

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.

    Although the central event of the book is the authors journey to heaven and back, the actual theme of the book is about how God is present in our lives in ways we may not notice. The author, in retrospect, highlights multiple events in her life that cumulatively cannot be coincidence alone. She challenges the reader to look at their life for the many times God provides direction and comfort. The book is an easy read and it is obvious the author is genuine in all of her accounts.

    This book was so moving that it was hard to put down. Very real, honest, and emotional. We need to be prepared to meet our Lord and Savior because we never know when it will be our last day on earth. It challenged me to want a closer relationship with Jesus.

    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.
