“Pastor Don Piper died January 18, 1989 when a semi-tractor truck crushed his car. Declared dead by the first rescue workers to arrive on the scene, Don’s body lay under a tarp for the next 90 minutes. Don’s soul, meanwhile, was experiencing love, joy, and life like he’d never known before. Don was in Heaven.
When another pastor’s prayers helped bring Don back to life, he became a living miracle! Yet this is one miracle Don wished never happened. Heaven’s bliss was replaced by excruciating pain and emotional turmoil. With the support and prayers of his beloved Eva, their three kids, and friends near and far, Don clings to his faith in God and fights to regain a semblance of his previous life. The Piper family’s incredible true story of perseverance and overcoming the challenges of life – and death – will bring hope and encouragement to all who see it.”
90 Minutes in Heaven: A True Story of Death and Life by Don Piper is a powerful story of an ordinary man that found himself on the wrong side of an oncoming truck. In an instant his body was ripped apart, mangled beyond recognition and seeming repair. Pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, his car respectfully covered with a tarp. But Heaven had other plans for Don Piper. Many minutes after the accident, while waiting for the coroner to arrive, another man of God followed the Holy Spirit’s nudging to go and pray for the dead man lying under the tarp.
What follows in this story is not just the life and dead struggle that took place over the next year plus, but the struggle for Don Piper to make sense of what he witnessed while he lay dead for 90 minutes. How can he possibly tell people that he was in Heaven? They would most assuredly declare him crazy. Following God’s leading; Don began to share his story to a few… then a few more. And now 30 years later, his story is coming to the big screen. I would urge you to read this book. Read about the life he touched. Read the letters and testimonies. Your life will be touched as well. And then reserve the date of September 11, 2015 to see the movie.
