’90 Minutes in Heaven’ ~
CFDb Movie Review
A man involved in a horrific car crash is pronounced dead, only to come back to life an hour and a half later, claiming to have seen Heaven.
The book was written by Don Piper, who in 1989 was on his way back from a minister’s conference when his car collided with a semi-truck that crossed into his lane. Thought to be dead, he lay covered with a tarp, but when a passing minister who’d been at the conference came to pray over Piper and sang to him, Piper recovered enough to sing along. His arm was severed, and his leg was hanging by a thread, and Piper endured a brutal recovery in which he didn’t get out of bed for 13 months.
After experiencing a warm cozy dream where he felt he was going to heaven before being pulled back, Piper was flat out angry with his maker because he was compelled to return and endure all the pain he went through to regain any mobility. After suffering silently, he wrote the book and went on to become an accomplished speaker, describing what he saw. The book sold 7 million copies, in 46 languages.
This movie was not what we expected and although that disappointed some people, it did NOT disappoint us. Here were some highlights:
- Finding your purpose. (even in the most discouraging circumstances)
- Some humor.
- Power of prayer and faith.
- When people lose hope, then others should lift them up in prayer.
- People are God’s hands to meet your need.
- Life is a gift.
This is a great movie for any family or person that has gone through or is currently going through trying circumstances.
