The remarkable story of a woman, plagued with guilt and skepticism, dramatically changed by the nine minutes she spent in heaven.
God let me see me through His eyes. And in that instant I knew that God had always loved me, through all of those dark and difficult years when I doubted His existence, through every crisis and every heartbreak that made me turn away from Him more. I knew, in that instant, that His love was endless and boundless, and that if He loved me so much, how could I not love myself?
For most of her life, Crystal McVea was a skeptic whose history of abuse and bad choices made her feel beyond the reach of God - who questioned if God was even real. She had all but given up hope. Then came December 10, 2009...and the moment that changed everything.
For nine minutes that night, Crystal went into full respiratory arrest. She was unconscious and unable to breathe on her own, unaware of the crisis happening around her as the hospital staff rushed to save her life. Crystal doesn't remember the trauma or losing consciousness; she just remembers waking up in heaven, next to God.
Waking Up in Heaven invites listeners to witness the relentless pursuit of God in a life that was broken and seemingly beyond hope, an awe-inspiring account of love, forgiveness, and redemption, and the healing power of God's presence.

worst book of this genre Ive listened to/read
Probably not. Although a nice and gentle sounding soul, unfortunately one of my pet peeves makes repeated appearances. The mispronunciation of "especially" vs "expecially". Everyone has their own literary peeves, this one grinds on me. The book is essentially an autobiography. The amount of time dedicated to the actual experience is perhaps 5% of the text.
"Thinking in Pictures" by Temple Grandin. Have read it before but wanted to experience it again.
No. See above re: pronunciation concerns.
I would cut out a lot of what I would call filler. This book needs more substance.
Don't waste your money on this one. I love reading about experiences in heaven. This is perhaps the 8thbook I have read on the subject; and isn't in the same league at all. It drug on and on.
