      After reading the back cover of this book and learning that the story was about a man who had been killed in a horrific car crash, went to heaven and then returned to life 90 minutes later, I had high expectations for a riveting read I was really disappointed I survived a harrowing car accident 2 years ago so expected this to be somewhat cathartic Instead, I found the story to be recounted poorly and disjointedly By far the largest problem with the book however was that the author is a Southern [...]

      My mom is struggling with her faith as she fights cancer She is concerned about dying, if she s going to heaven or hell, lots of questions like that I had heard awesome things about this book from my Christian friends, so I told her to pick it up Of course, the chemo brain mom purchased the short version of the book Which worked well for me, as she wanted me to read it when she was done Shoot So.I think this is a lovely book for people of the Christian faith who are dealing with grief or end of [...]

      Well, hmmmm, not real sure what to say about this book because I don t want to be negative but I was definitely disappointed I guess I expected of the book to be about the heaven experience, not all about the recovery process I kind of felt like I picked up a book on rehabilitation after a severe accident There were parts that were interesting, and I did take some powerful messages from it here and there, but for the most part it was just repetitive and kind of dragged on.

    4. Bert Gary on said:

      Rev Piper s description of heaven is brief and early in the book If you want afterlife details, there are few to be found here The problems are many with this book, but let me affirm Piper s ministry to persons confined to the fixator a torturous contraption they use to try to save severely broken limbs Piper presents several opportunities that he had to encourage and inform those who have to wear that thing I commend him for that I broke my neck and wore a halo for months More than once I ve ha [...]

      This book has received wonderful reviews but I had to force myself to finish it Normally I love stories about near death experiences but I found this story poorly written and very repetitive The author is a Southern Baptist minister and it appears that the music played in heaven is Christian So if you re of another faith forget it Oops, sorry.

    6. William on said:

      Don Piper s book has a lot of problems Let s start with the rather misleading title Based on a title like 90 Minutes in Heaven one might think that most of the book is about the author s experience in heaven It s not In fact Piper s description of his 90 Minutes in Heaven takes about 15 pages out of a total of about 200 What the book s REALLY about is the lengthy recovery from his injuries, both physical and mental.From that perspective it s not really a bad book Not great, but not bad As Piper [...]

      This book probably doesn t deserve the two stars that I gave it, and some people may be angry that I didn t rate it higher I saw it at the bookstore, waited to get it on hold at the library, and in the meantime had it highly recommended by a patient s spouse among other people, so I was quite excited when it was available to me Then the holidays hit and I didn t have much time and well, the book was due yesterday worries, it s a short read, and it promises to be a very interesting read to boot L [...]

      As I read this book I did my best to empathize with its author I am very glad that he was able to learn lessons from his experience and allow God to bring Good from all the pain he had to suffer, for indeed, it sounds like he suffered a lot That he has helped so many people since and his tragedy inspired so much prayer seem to be irrefutable and wonderful things.What I m wondering is, why are these books so popular What draws people to them More to the point, Why am I reading books on life after [...]

      Have you ever wondered where you are going after you die Do you even know where you re going after you die Well in 90 Minutes in Heaven A True Story of Death and Life written by Don Piper we find the story of Don Piper who died in a car accident, went to heaven, and came back to earth He was driving home to Houston from the Baptist General Convention of Texas on Wednesday morning when he had to cross the bridge over Trinity River in a cloudburst Right after the bridge there was a sharp incline g [...]

    10. Shay on said:

      I commend this author for the inner strength that he found within himself to be able to pull through such a horrific accident and recovery period It made me realize how fortunate I am to have zero physical restrictions in my life, as well as my family I was also touched by his willingness since the accident to reach out to many other people who had similar accidents But I wonder how this story would have been told if he had not been a Southern Baptist Minister I believe that his background in re [...]

    11. Katie E on said:

      90 Minutes in Heaven was a fantastic book I loved it It kept me interested throughout the whole thing If you like books that touch your heart this book is for you Also, if you ve ever wondered what heaven is like, this is also for you What made me want to read this book is the recent passing of a close family member In the book, Don Piper gets in a car crash and is pronounced dead He is welcomed to Heaven and spends 90 minutes there He says that they are the greatest moments of his life and pray [...]

    12. Mike (the Paladin) on said:

      Okay let me open with this and a friend has pointed out how often I open with this information I m a Christian I m an assistant pastor in our congregation So I approach this advisedly.First I can not speak to the experience but I approach the book with an attitude that Don Piper is speaking truthfully I believe what he says Some will argue that what he experienced was simply a dream supplied by his mind and that he was not dead for 90 minutes They will assume that the EMTs simply either missed h [...]

    13. Mike Hernandez on said:

      This book is about a guy who clinically dies in a car wreck for 90 minutes, until he miraculously comes back to life While dead he experiences heaven and then proceeds to preach to everyone that will listen I suppose if you are the spiritual Christian type, then you will find this book appealing and inspirational I am extremely skeptical about these sorts of things and therefore can t relate well The book was written by Don Piper with the help of an established writer It was apparent the writer [...]

    14. Leila on said:

      spoiler reveals some of what s in the book.The subject of this book had help with the writing There is a lot that s repetitive I don t know if it was an effort to pad the book and create pages or to drive home certain points Don Piper wanted to make It didn t detract from the main message about Mr Piper s experience in heaven after he died and then his return to mortality and the anger he had He struggled to learn what the mission God wanted him to accomplish by sending him back You couldn t he [...]

    15. Lyn on said:

      This book wasn t what I expected One chapter describing a horrific accident, 2 chapters about a visit to heaven followed by several chapters describing a grueling recovery, rehabilitation and fight with depression, then a few chapters of personal back patting about how much the authors experience has helped others Not exactly the inspiration someone suffering a loss would need I read this book because I have a friend grieving the loss of her son and I thought perhaps this book might help her, I [...]

      Red Dot Book Review By Hannah Stillson90 Minutes in Heaven By Don PiperDon Piper, a local pastor in Texas, gets pushed to his limits as he realizes the difference between self pity and hope On a January morning, Don Piper was driving home from a pastoral conference As he was driving over a bridge, a truck lost control and hit Don s car, flipping it over 3 times Supposedly Don died and went up to heaven for 90 minutes After Don s death, many people were called and informed, but what they didn t k [...]

    17. Grumpus on said:

      Believers like myself will find this will find this inspirational Non believers, don t waste your time because you re only going to complain about it Although I found the story inspirational, I think the title of the book is a little misleading I was expecting much detail about the heaven experience This was only a small portion of the overall book The majority of the book described the incredibly horrible accident that led to his visit to the pearly gates and even so of his painful recovery b [...]

    18. Kathleen Fuller on said:

      I almost gave up on this book Having lost several people in 2015, I wanted to know about heaven Instead, there s some description about what Piper saw and experienced in heaven and all of it is wonderful but this book is mostly about his accident and recovery in vivid detail That s when I nearly stopped reading, mostly because I m squeamish But I m glad I continued, because I realize now that every bit of information about Piper s accident, pain, recovery, struggle with depression, and finding [...]

    19. Alayne on said:

      I think the author did a great job in describing a very difficult personal experience and how God used him to help others dealing with issues in life to bring them closer to God I can only imagine how difficult it was for him to write this book I think people who expected the entire book to be about his 90 minutes in heaven were disappointed If you read this book with an open mind and no expectations, I think you ll get a lot out of it Don Piper s message is to relate how God used him to help ot [...]

    20. Kelly on said:

      These are the kinds of books that are so incredibly difficult to review because each reading experience will differ so much based on your background and beliefs As a Christian, these books make me a little bit wary I find them preachy and polarizing instead of encouraging, but if someone who reads this is uplifted or inspired by it, that is wonderful This is just not my cup of tea.

    21. Franklin on said:

      This book is very sad, but also inspirational You read about the torture the man must go through in recoverying from his crash, but it s inspirational because of the experience he had with God Great book.

    22. Joshua on said:

      I really enjoyed the story and the style it was written I also really enjoyed the fact that after his recovery, Don Piper was able to minister to many others going through similar issues Did Piper really spend 90 minutes in Heaven Only God knows.

    23. Keegan Otsuka on said:

      Have you ever thought of one of the most frequent questions in the world such as, what happens when you die Well within one book this incredible survivalist that has been to Heaven and back was able to exemplify and describe heaven in just 205 pages This amazing book really helps improve your faith and has changed many lives, including my own Through the imagery and tone 90 Minutes in Heaven has shocked and stunned many readers 90 Minutes in Heaven written by Don Piper takes you through the trag [...]

    24. Liz Butler on said:

      Personally, and quite honestly, I think the title of this book should be I had a terrible accident and went to Heaven, where I spend 90 minutes, but really, let me tell you all about my recovery.I had such high hopes for this book I believe in Heaven and I believe it s glorious and I wanted to learn about it But in the end, I was so disappointed by the fact that the author dedicated 1 out of 18 chapters to his time in Heaven, and left me wanting So Much More More than him telling me that the col [...]

    25. Kylie W on said:

      I gave this book a five because its my favorite book and is a very interesting story about a guy that was actually living I just got done with 90 minutes in heaven and now is currently my all time favorite book This book can be very emotionial because it involves death The book 90 minutes in heaven is about middle aged guy that is going to go to his friends church to preach for him On his way there he gets in a car crash and dies immedietly His friend then came to the car scene and was praying f [...]

    26. Lisa on said:

      I would have never read this book except my daughter gave it to me as a gift I was a bit wary of the premise of the book a man in a car accident is clinically dead for 90 minutes, and supposedly spends those minutes in heaven.On the positive side, most of the book is not so much about his time in heaven , but about how he deals with his very long recovery from a very serious car accident I liked that aspect of the book He is a pastor, and his Christianity shines through the book He shares wonder [...]

    27. Michelle on said:

      I was really looking forward to this book when I started it I was going through a philosophical phase at the time and had some questions about God and Heaven I knew it wasn t going to answer all of my questions and there was even the chance that it wouldn t answer any, I still wanted to give it a try All in all, the author talked a lot about his life as a pastor and a speaker and about the car accident that he was in that got him to Heaven and the long healing process he went through after the a [...]

    28. Linda Lipko on said:

      Nope, didn t like this one at all At times when I express personal dislike for a book, either an reviewer or someone here on launches a diatribe Sticking my neck out, I ll venture into the murky waters of personal opinion.At times, whenever a good Christian writes a book, I m somehow left feeling unclean from the self aggrandizing techniques of Brother have you found the Lord Don Piper, a young Baptist minster is a victim of a horrible traffic accident wherein a truck crashed head on into his ca [...]

      In early December my family found out that my dad had lung cancer My dad, for many months, had been encouraging me to read Don Piper s 90 Minutes in Heaven but I just never took the tiime to sit down and read this encouraging book On the day my dad was scheduled for surgery, I took this book to the hospital with me, with hopes of reading it while waiting I did just that Although, I didn t finish reading it at the hospital, I finally finished reading it at the end of the day Reading this book at [...]
