Have you ever wondered what life after death is like?
In his book "90 Minutes In Heaven"
Don Piper shares his incredible story of death, pain, and life.
I found this book filled with hope. He doesn't necessarily write from
a deep, contemplative relationship with God,
which sometimes includes suffering.
Instead, I read the words of a Pastor who struggles with the same
analytical weaknesses in his faith that we all have.
That aspect for me, made Don Piper's account all the more believable.
