Written in straight-forward, simple style without a lot of "religionese," Don Piper has told the story of his devastating accident, his brief time in heaven and his return to a life full of pain and questions. I read it cover-to-cover in two hours and then loaned out my copy. I would recommend this book to just about anybody -- to those with questions about faith, questions about prayer, questions about life and death and pain which we all face to some extent.

His descriptions of heaven are human ones -- simple, not overly poetic or grandiose, just those of someone who experienced the indescribable and then tried to describe it. I loved the descriptions of the incredible heavenly music and I get the feeling that vast choirs and heightened senses await us there. And despite the incredible experience, Piper found it too personal, too private, and too intimate to share with anyone for over a year after his accident. I'm so glad he found the courage to do so.

I also love the honesty with which he describes his pain and depression and the inevitable questions that we must face when we have close encounters with the Almighty. The God we meet is often not the one we expected, and while we can't understand why God does what he does, we can no longer deny this God we don't understand. And while we hold these two things together, our lives are changed and grace is showered down amid the ruins of what we thought was important to us.

A simply-told story of the greatest mystery of all -- you HAVE to read this book!!

Very inspirational book about Pastor Don Piper's horrific car crash that literally left him dead. He claims he went to heaven and then was brought back to life. He gives a very detailed account of heaven and his short visit there. Thisd serves as giving hope to believers and calm fears of those who worry about an afterlife. Much of the book is about his struggle to heal from his horrible injuries. While he has all my sympathy on his struggle to recover this part of the book does drag on and gets a little boring with all the details. Piper has used his experience to inspire and comfort people giving hope to those facing death and those uncertian about death.more
My response to this book is I became interested in the beginning when Don talked of stopping by in heaven. It is a very slow book with lots of lessons learned and experiences. There were alot of coincidences also such as the last name of his bestfriend, Gentiles and Dons wife Eva (close to Eve).more
Not the heaven I would want, but it's still fascinating and well written.more
90 MINUTES IN HEAVEN by Don PiperPublished by Baker Publishing GroupISBN-13: 9780800733995This book was purchased by me, at the recommendation from my 2 cousins. Synopsis (borrowed from B&N): He thought it was going to be just another day. God had other plans.Don Piper died instantly when his car was crushed by a semi. While his body lay lifeless inside the ruins of his car, Piper went to heaven. Ninety minutes after the wreck, he miraculously returned to life on earth with only the memory of heavenly bliss. His faith in God was severely tested as he faced an uncertain and grueling recovery. Now he shares his life-changing story with you.If you've ever wondered what heaven was like, if you've ever questioned God's goodness because bad things happen, if you've had trouble believing that heaven is real--this incredible true story will change your life. My Thoughts and Opinion: This past December, while at a family funeral, my cousins and I started to talk about and discuss spiritual books we had read, such as The Left Behind Series. Two cousins mentioned this book and both gave very good verbal reviews on it. Once home, I hopped online and ordered it and since that time it has been in my tbr bookcase. Fast forward to September 5th when I received the news that my Mother had 2 weeks to live. But first a caveat and I apologize in advance if I offend anyone. I am of the Catholic faith and believe that there is an afterlife, Heaven, eternal life. However, I am and always have been curious as to the transition from this life to the next. That's when I felt I must and needed to read this book. I made the decision, and I have such comfort knowing that I was there, to be with my Mom when she made her transition.Don Piper, a Minister, retells his experience of the day he died. What he experienced, what he saw, what he felt. He also writes about the excruciating pain and 30+ operations he had to endure after the accident that took his life for 90 minutes. How for many months that turned into years of recuperation and dealing with anger, depression, hopelessness and wanting to return to Heaven again until he realized what God's plan was for him. If you are a believer, this story will strengthen and confirm that belief. It gave me great solace and reassurance in a very difficult situation. My Rating: 4more
What I like is there are very few details from the afterlife - most of the book details Piper's experiences and the effect that his brief visit to heaven had on him.more
An okay story poorly told, I thought. I would like to believe all that he spoke of in the book; that there is a heaven after life etc., and I think that I do, but this story could have been told so much better. Just a meh read for me but I am glad that I read it.more
On Don Piper’s way home from a Baptist Convention in San Antonio, Tex, a semi-truck hit him head on. The graphic pictures show where the tires decimated the driver’s side of the small car. Don remembers recognizing family and friends greeting him at the gates of Heaven. He did not wish to return. 90 Minutes in Heaven makes you look at your world differently, including what you believe and God has planned for you. This is a life changing work, and I highly recommend it to everyone, both Christian and those who question.more
A lot to think about. Whether or not your belief system allows you to see this as non-fiction, it was an interesting view into life after a catastrophic accident.more
I've heard a lot about this New York Times bestseller on the Knight Agency blog, so I picked it up out of curiosity. I admit, my faith is frail at this point and I approached it as a skeptic. I can't say it convinced me of anything, but it's an intriguing read and a book I'll pass along to my mom to read.The title tells the basics of the tale: Don Piper died. One instant he was driving down a narrow bridge in Texas, and in the next he was in heaven. It was a place of boundless joy. He felt no regrets, and didn't have a thought of who he had left behind on Earth. Long-dead friends and family welcomed him as they praised together. The music he heard as beyond description. Meanwhile, on Earth, he was declared dead for ninety minutes. Multiple EMTs verified it. No one rushed to extract him from his car as they waited for the coroner. Then a bystander asked to go pray over the dead man, and to shock the dead man was not dead. Don Piper had returned to Earth, to a wrecked and ruined body. No one could explain his survival. Other the next days and months, he almost died again and again. He knew deep, dark depression, and raged at his constant pain and helplessness. However, he survived, and as he opened up about his experience of seeing heaven, that became part of his ministry.What Don Piper dealt with is a miracle. There's no question of that. I marvel at how he has endured so much pain and struggle, and now uses that to tend to others, especially those using the Ilizarov fixator to lengthen bones. He does not come across as a quack. He has faith in his experience, and uses that to comfort others as they confront death or debilitating pain.more
Very good reading, and makes one thing of the importance of knowing Jesus Christ and therefore knowing where I'm going when I die.more
To begin, I must confess that this is the first book I've ever read from somebody who was pronounced dead and it is not normally subject matter that I would gravitate towards. That being said, Pastor Don Piper's account of his personal struggles dealing with the emotional and physical trauma he experienced in the aftermath of a horrific collision with an 18-wheeler is inspiring to anybody who has had to deal with a life-changing injury. Only a relatively small portion of the book is dedicated to his actual recollections of Heaven which I found a little disappointing given the title of the book, but it is an interesting read nonetheless. The hook of this book might be the account of an almost-realized salvation, but the real miracle in these pages is how so many people bound together and sacrificed for so long to help this man and his family recover after the accident.more
very good and movingmore
A thought provoking true story about a man who died in a car crash. He claims to have spent 90 minutes in heaven before returning to face recovery from his critical injuries. The content of this book actually spends more time discussing the many challenges he faces as he struggles to recover. It also touches many times on the powerful relationships that strengthened him through his recovery. Not much time is spent discussing his 90 minutes in heaven as the title seems to imply he will. A quick, enjoyable read for those who like a biographical read every now and then.more
A really gripping true life story. Interesting near death experience and many instances of helping others. A book that promotes prayer. Don Piper was a minister before the accident and still is today. Don Piper is now sure that he is going to heaven when he dies. A friend lent me this book.more
90 minutes is a short time for many things. Compared to years of recovery, it barely makes a blip. Unless that 90 minutes is spent declared dead by fully qualified and equipped paramedics. Then it is important, but not much happening in it to write about. Spent in Heaven, there is plenty to write about. However, the spiritual, emotional and physical recovery after that is still the bulk of an autobiography like this.Many people find it (and Mr. Piper's speaking engagements) a consolation about loved ones that have gone on to Heaven. I find his descriptions of Heaven very interesting and engaging. However, I'll get to fully experience those myself one day. Recovery like his I hope to learn from without personal experience.more
On my tbr list from the 2008 75 book challenge group, this one was recommended by streamsong.Don Piper, a young Baptist minster is a victim of a horrible traffic accident wherein a truck crashed head on into his car and he is violently crushed within.Pronounced dead at the scene, he is transported to heaven where he is embraced by those who died before him. After his out of body experience, he awakens to horrific pain.Reluctant to discuss his experience, Piper is consumed with constant, unbearable pain as gradually his body and spirit are rebuilt. In telling the story of his miracle and new life, Don is able to assist others.I rate this book 2.5 stars.more
very thought provoking! inspiring!more
Pastor Piper is in a serious car accident and is found dead in his mangled car. Ninety minutes later, though, a faint pulse is found and he is rushed to the hospital to undergo over a year of intensive, painful therapy that saves his life and allows him to walk again. This book describes his brief visit to heaven and his coming to terms with his "new normal" life.more
This was a great book! Read it if you can find the time. It is a very fast read. I wasn't able to put it down until I was done. It gives you an awful lot to think about.more
Did the author really have the experiences he had after his tragic accident that he claims to have had? No one will really know except him and God, however, the book was a very entertaining read. It is definately a great book if you are looking for inspiration to help you through a very tough time.more
"90 Minutes in Heaven" offers a glimpse into a very real dimension of God's reality. It encourages those recovering from serious injuries and those dealing with the loss of a loved one. The experience dramatically changed Don Piper's life and it can change yours, too.more
