Dr. Mary Neal drowned while kayaking in Chile. After going over a waterfall, she was pinned at the bottom and, despite the efforts to rescue her, died.
This book is the good doctor's detailed account of what transpired.
The 33 chapters are very short which makes this an easy read for the summer. Plus there's an excellent Q&A with Dr. Neal at the back.
This isn't just a book about dying, going to heaven and all that encompasses that experience. This book wrestles with some of the meatiest theological questions: who is God? What is God and is it possible for people to relate to him? Dr. Neal won't "beat around the bush" or give you cliches; she spits out her honest experience and relates her applications without apology.
Purpose and meaning come into play as well for Dr. Neal. This book will definitely be added to the libraries of those who crave to know more about the hereafter.
