Summary

While connecting me up to various machines and monitors and placing nitroglycerine tablets under my tongue, the doctor looked at me early on and said: "You waited too long to get here, sir." I was petrified. There was no immediate response on my part, only a deep sense of fear entombed by a completely paralyzed inner spirit. Much to my surprise, he spoke again: "Sir, you've waited too long to get here. You're not going to make it." And he continued: "If you believe in God, this is the time to make peace." In that very moment, I said to myself, "What do you mean, "If you believe in God?" Of course I believe in God! I'm a man of faith and a Catholic priest!"

Fr. John Tourangeau, O. Praem., a Norbertine priest who had an afterlife experience following a major heart attack, emphatically states, "Heaven is for real!" Within this enlightening and hope-filled book, Fr. John weaves a powerful and dynamic tapestry of the Kingdom of God at hand through the exploration of Christian tradition, Sacred Scripture, Catholic teaching, as well as his own lived experiences.

New personal insights

With the many wonderful books and movies that have been written about people who have experienced heaven, this is another one to add to the list. There are some really great and inspirational messages shared throughout this book that provided me with some new personal insights into my faith and how to look at life from a different perspective.

Boring

This author managed to take an interesting aspect of his life and turn it into one of the most dry pieces of work I’ve ever listened to or read. I gave 5 stars for performance because the Narrator seemed to convey the author’s very dry and dull personality very well.

Good book on Catholic spirituality

Very nice book. Nice to see from a priest’s view. Although it does not give really any descriptions of Heaven or go into detail of his conversation with Jesus, which is what I was hoping for. But, a persons NDE ( Near Death Experience) should always be understood as a private revelation anyways. It was still a very nice story of how he lived before his NDE and then afterwards. It still feeds the soul.

Comforting imagery of the after-death moment

Given his background as a Catholic priest who died and came back I was hoping for a bit more detailed imagery of Catholic teaching on Particular Judgment, purgatory, etc., but that’s not what he seemed to have experienced but rather a warm personal encounter with Jesus, which I found comforting.
