Don Piper’s 90 Minutes in Heaven is by far one of the most inspirational books I have ever read.

I must admit, I was immediately drawn in by the title. Being a Christian, I have often wondered what Heaven is truly like.

When I saw this book, I thought to myself “Wow, a book that describes a man’s journey to Heaven and his return to tell about it!”

However, as I read it, I was disappointed at first because only a small part of the book is about Heaven itself. The rest is about his struggles with depression and his recovery from his accident.

Yet after reading it, I realized that at its very heart, 90 Minutes in Heaven is an inspirational story of one man learning to depend on God to help him out of the dark times in life.

Now before I go any further, I should probably fill you in on the story.

While on the way home from a church conference, Don Piper’s was involved in a horrific accident. His car was completely crushed by a semi-trailer that crossed into his lane. According to several medical personnel, Piper died instantly.

As he lay lifeless inside his destroyed car, Piper claims that he experienced the glories of Heaven and was awed by its beauty and music.

90 minutes after the wreck, as a minister prayed for him, Piper miraculously returned to life on Earth with only the memory of his experience in heaven.

The intense pain and knowledge that he would never be the same again lead Piper to despair, depression, and frustration.

Yet God was looking out for Piper and placed several people in Piper’s life that helped him during his recovery.

Feeling fully blessed by God, Piper shares his experiences with others and his journey with God through this story.

After reading it, I feel that this book can show you that with Godly love and support, you can overcome anything that life throws your way.

Piper’s harrowing ordeal was really inspiring to me, and I would encourage anyone who is struggling with life to read this and see how God can transform you.
