Heaven's Lessons

I believe in heaven. But I've always been skeptical of "near death experiences" and the stories of people who say they have died and returned with accounts of "the hereafter."

But I know Steve Sjogren. He has been a friend and mentor for many years. He couldn't have more credibility with me. Neither could his newest book, Heaven's Lessons.

Steve died in an operating room. He "coded" for seven minutes. But the surgeons and others revived him. The years since have not been easy for Steve, but they have given him an amazing story to tell--a tale he weaves winsomely and memorably in Heaven's Lessons. He writes,

“If you’d asked me who God is on December 9, the year of my accident, I would have been able to give you a fairly cohesive but theoretical answer. A day later all of that changed.”

Seven minutes of death gave Steve a lifetime of lessons, and it's not hard to imagine that he only scratches the surface in his ten chapters, entitled:
  1. We Live in a Spiritual World
  2. God Is Big
  3. Success Works Backwards
  4. God Especially Enjoys Irregular People
  5. Don't Fear Death
  6. Quit Quitting
  7. God Heals Gradually
  8. Get Over It! 
  9. Face Your Fear
  10. Be Thankful

He concludes with a final selection called, "I Dare You to Dare Me," that is quintessential Steve Sjogren. And (like the whole book) potentially life-changing. 
I love the way Steve Sjogren thinks. I love the way he writes. And I think everyone should read Heaven's Lessons.
