What would Heaven be like, if we could visit it but only for a few minutes? Don Piper, the author of 90 Minutes In Heaven had the awesome opportunity to visit for 90 minutes after being in a near fatal car accident. He was pronounced dead on the scene but lived to tell about it in the anniversary edition of his recently updated book. After finally waking up from this traumatic accident and realizing that God sent him back to earth--he was very bitter to those around him. But after being told by a pastor friend of his to snap out of it--he started to see things turn around for the better and not to be angry with God for sending him back.
Reading some of the author's thoughts and feelings towards this whole experience it is reasoning enough to say that we will all get this chance one day but hopefully as a permanent resident there. The central message that I believe he is trying to convey is one that we may never know or understand why we of all people are still here or left behind but it's not our job to know its our job to be at work until His mighty return one day.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Revell.
