90 Minutes in Heaven - Review

No comments    








Thanks to FlyBy Promotions, I was given the chance to read the movie edition of 90 Minutes in Heaven, prior to the release of the movie on September 11, 2015. All I can say, is what an amazing story! I read all 245 pages almost in one sitting, it was that hard to put down. 

The film is currently in theaters everywhere and is rated PG-13 for intense accident and injury images which might be disturbing to younger children. The movie, presented by Giving Films stars Hayden Christensen (you may know him from some of the Star Wars films), Kate Bosworth (Remember the Titans), Michael W. Smith, and even Dwight Yoakam. 

The book, and film, is the story of Pastor Don Piper. On January 18, 1989, Pastor Don's car was hit and crushed by a semi truck while he was driving home from a church conference. The first rescue workers arriving at the scene declared him dead. A tarp was placed over his car. Ambulances were told to return to base- the coroner was needed, not a hospital. For 90 minutes, Don Piper's body was an empty shell while his soul was experiencing the joys of Heaven.

Another pastor, stuck in the traffic jam of the wreck, felt God's calling to go to this man and to pray for him. After 90 minutes of being declared dead, life returned to Don. He was a living miracle. The joy he felt being in Heaven was soon traded for pain and suffering. It was only with the love and support of praying friends and family that Don made it through one surgery and procedure after another and began to heal physically and to renew his faith in God. This is the Piper family's amazing story.
