Publisher's Summary

How a doctor's glimpses of eternity confirmed everything he believed about God, suffering, life on Earth, and what happens after death.
Dr. Chauncey Crandall knows his patients well. When they are dying, he sits at the bedside with them and holds their hands. He prays with them. Sometimes he can feel what they feel and see what they see. At other times his patients have near-death experiences and "come back" with astonishing descriptions of the afterlife. In Touching Heaven, Dr. Crandall reveals how what he has seen and heard has convinced him that God is real, that we are created for a divine purpose, that death is not the end, that we will see our departed loved ones again, and that we are closer to the next world than we think.

An Encouraging Book

Any additional comments?

I found this book to be highly encouraging and motivating for me to read the Bible more, praise more, and pray more. Much of what the author says will be difficult for the average person to believe because of the nature of the experiences. You will have to reason he is either a liar, delusional, or telling the truth. I believe he is telling the truth. I am not a Pentecostal nor go to such a church, but I found what the author said to be very in line with Scripture. In fact the author quotes a great deal of Scripture. As in all things, the Christian must make sure everything lines up with Scripture and sound exogesis.<br/><br/>The author speaks a great deal about his interactions with patients who have died and come back. He also speaks a great deal about spiritual encounters in his practice and ministry life. It is worth noting that there was not a great deal stated about what people saw or experienced when they died and came back, although that is touched on. The book really is more on the authors perspective and his interactions with people. <br/><br/>The book also focus's on the authors son who passed on, and the authors journey and experience through that. There are many encouraging events that the author and his family went through and saw and I felt reading this book lifted me up in my faith. I would recommend this book. <br/><br/>

Heartwarming

Loved it! So heartwarming and thought provoking. A professional doctor who isn't afraid of political correctness and prays FOR his patients by laying on off hands. Just like in the days of the physician Luke.

Made me question my own faith

Once I got over the way the audio story was read (a little robotic for me) I enjoyed listening to this, at times heartbreaking, account of this Drs experience of faith and his journey. At times it brought me to tears, it made me question the strength of my own faith and it made me glad I have belief in someone/something greater.
