To Heaven and Back

Dr. Mary C. Neal's experience is unique but not unusual.  Although many people have written about their experience of dying and returning to earth, each one is unique and worth hearing.

Mary died while on a kayaking trip in Chile but returned to earth after being told there was more for her to  do.  She shares her story with honesty and with sorrow as her story does not end with a happy ending.

Even though there were parts of Mary's story that I had a hard time understanding, I do recognize the truth of her testimony.  She, like all of us, are trying to grasp the meaning of life and God's will for us while we live here on earth. We may not get it all right, but God is a God of grace and gives us many opportunities to understand and to follow Him.

This book is similar to 90 Minutes in Heaven and Heaven is For Real.  All of these books remind us that there really is more to this life and that we have a hope of a better place.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
