90 Minutes in Heaven


In an effort to switch things up a bit, I decided to read a nonfiction book. I must say that I've seen this book over the years and never really felt compelled to read it. However, a few months ago, when I was dropping things off at the Goodwill and ended up leaving with 10 books this one made the cut. It was definitely an interesting story. I feel like a bad Christian because I'm not moved by the book and probably won't read it again. It's kinda heavy and I was disappointed that there wasn’t some profound moral at the end. However, maybe it's just because I've been in a funk lately and this definitely wasn't the book to lift me out of it. So if you are interested in reading about one man's trip to heaven and back then you should no doubt read 90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper.

I read the first 3 chapters of this book and I couldn't get past those, my reason were I just keep thinking about my mom, grandma, aunt and one of my best friends, the whole time while reading. As a result, I just kept reliving our last days together all the conversations we had and out last visits together. On the other hand, I began realizing I was still grieving for the loss of my mom. In all, from what I read it made me think about what it would feel like to be in Heaven. At this point, I decided I would definitely revisit it again later. Finally, I believe God speaks to us in different ways in our life. As a Christian, you just have to realize when he’s talking. In short, not always looking on your own for the answers.
