Publisher's Summary

While connecting me up to various machines and monitors and placing nitroglycerine tablets under my tongue, the doctor looked at me early on and said: "You waited too long to get here, sir." I was petrified. There was no immediate response on my part, only a deep sense of fear entombed by a completely paralyzed inner spirit. Much to my surprise, he spoke again: "Sir, you've waited too long to get here. You're not going to make it." And he continued: "If you believe in God, this is the time to make peace." In that very moment, I said to myself, "What do you mean, "If you believe in God?" Of course I believe in God! I'm a man of faith and a Catholic priest!"
Fr. John Tourangeau, O. Praem., a Norbertine priest who had an afterlife experience following a major heart attack, emphatically states, "Heaven is for real!" Within this enlightening and hope-filled book, Fr. John weaves a powerful and dynamic tapestry of the Kingdom of God at hand through the exploration of Christian tradition, Sacred Scripture, Catholic teaching, as well as his own lived experiences.

Good book on Catholic spirituality

Very nice book. Nice to see from a priest’s view. Although it does not give really any descriptions of Heaven or go into detail of his conversation with Jesus, which is what I was hoping for. But, a persons NDE ( Near Death Experience) should always be understood as a private revelation anyways. It was still a very nice story of how he lived before his NDE and then afterwards. It still feeds the soul.

Comforting imagery of the after-death moment

Given his background as a Catholic priest who died and came back I was hoping for a bit more detailed imagery of Catholic teaching on Particular Judgment, purgatory, etc., but that’s not what he seemed to have experienced but rather a warm personal encounter with Jesus, which I found comforting.
