As he is driving home from a minister's conference, Baptist minister Don Piper collides with a semi-truck that crosses into his lane. He is pronounced dead at the scene. For the next 90 minutes, Piper experiences heaven where he is greeted by those who had influenced him spiritually. He hears beautiful music and feels true peace.
Back on earth, a passing minister who had also been at the conference is led to pray for Don even though he knows the man is dead. Piper miraculously comes back to life and the bliss of heaven is replaced by a long and painful recovery.
For years Piper kept his heavenly experience to himself. Finally, however, friends and family convinced him to share his remarkable story.

Bridging the Gap
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, as have my wife and numerous others we've shared it with. It's one of those books you feel safe sharing with unbelievers. The Bible says that God has planted eternity in the hearts of all people. Like my friend Carlen, this especially surfaces when people are confronted with heir own mortality. That's when they recall the truth's they've heard from faithful believers. I encourage believers everywhere to share this book as a bridge to those you love - who resist the gospel.
90 Minutes in Heaven
This book isn't about his "90 minutes in heaven". It's about his recovery from his accident. The only thing you get about is he hears music and sees colors and is greeted by a few people he knows. That's it! I wanted to know about Heaven. Not his accident and his recovery. Very disappointed.
The title is very misleading, because,in fact,Only about 12 pages is about heaven, the rest is his recovery. It was a remarkable one, however i bought this book to hear about his afterlife vision. I was very disappointed to learn in fact it hardly focused on it. What was told about it (very little) was repetitive, i.e. beautiful, happy, etc....it did nothing to inspire or increase my faith in heaven or the afterlife.
