Now, in his first new book in four years, the author of 90 Minutes in Heaven, draws on his own firsthand experiences with the joys of Heaven, as well as the lessons found in the Gospel, to offer a set of "departing instructions," helping readers face the inevitable battles ahead, prepare for eternal life, and, starting today, live a happy, fulfilling, purposeful life on Earth while preparing for the glories of Heaven.
