Explanation of the Book:

"To Heaven and Back tells the story of Fr. John Tourangeau's near death experience that took him to the threshold of heaven and back. That episode alone makes this book undeniably memorable. But what makes it important-and a gift for the reader-is that after this life-altering experience Fr. Tourangeau discovers that if he is truly to move from death back to life, he must deal with his own pain and brokenness, with the memories and fears that hold him bound, and with all the things that rob him of hope. In his discovery that he is called to be a "wounded healer," Fr. Tourangeau becomes a trustwor-thy spiritual companion and guide who reminds us that we find free-dom and peace only when we are not afraid to be the person that God's love summons us to be. Most of all, To Heaven & Back is a blessing because it is written with the heartfelt conviction that God always calls us to fullness of life."FROM THE BOOK:"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!""Meet Fr. John: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. "While the fullness of heaven cannot be fully experienced in our life here on earth," Father explains, "we are able to more fully experience God's love for us through our relationships with others. For it is in and through these relationships that we draw closer to Christ and his promise for us."

Explanation of the Book:

#1 New York Times best-seller with more than 11 million copies sold and Amazon’s #17 best-selling book of all time. Heaven Is for Real was the best-selling non-fiction book of 2011 as reported by Nielsen’s Bookscan, and was developed as a major motion picture by Sony in 2014. “Do you remember the hospital, Colton?” Sonja said. “Yes, mommy, I remember,” he said. “That’s where the angels sang to me.” When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back. Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during the surgery–and authenticated that claim by describing exactly what his parents were doing in another part of the hospital while he was being operated on. He talked of visiting heaven and relayed stories told to him by people he met there whom he had never met in life, sharing events that happened even before he was born. He also astonished his parents with descriptions and obscure details about heaven that matched the Bible exactly, though he had not yet learned to read. With disarming innocence and the plainspoken boldness of a child, Colton tells of meeting long-departed family members. He describes Jesus, the angels, how “really, really big” God is, and how much God loves us. Retold by his father, but using Colton’s uniquely simple words, Heaven Is for Real offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us, where as Colton says, “Nobody is old and nobody wears glasses.” Heaven Is for Real will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child.

Explanation of the Book:

"I love you past the rainbow and past the Earth's only Moon . . . for God, our loving Creator, does not live in a cold, dim crater on hard, cement-like rock so rough . . . I love you to heaven and back." I Love You to Heaven and Back is the ultimate love triangle between God, a parent or caregiver, and their child. Children from around the world of different races, colors, and disabilities ask their caregivers on every page questions about God such as "Why does God love us?" Their caregiver ends their biblical-based, rhyming answer with how God has taught them to love or given them a blessing that they can then share with their child. The hope is that all children will come to learn that their caregiver loves them to heaven and back because Jesus died on the cross for us to make it possible. Jesus will return to the earth to judge the living and the dead and so truly will come back from heaven. This book can be read cover to cover, broken into sections just to answer the same question your child recently asked, or question, answer, and Bible passages read from the bottom of every page to make a daily devotional out of the book. Give this book to children who have a terminal illness or one that may become terminal to: give them permission to die, comfort that they will no longer suffer, a calmness that heaven is fun, and a certainty that you as the caregiver will be joining them soon. Of course, "Only God knows when our time on earth will end. It could be tomorrow or not till we are 110," so every child needs a copy of this book today - without delay!

What happens when you die? How does one transcend mankind to heavenly being, the known to the eternal mystery? One spring day in 1971, Calvin Cassady, a southwest Missouri teenager, was a victim in an unexplained automobile accident on a curvy Ozark mountain roadway.

Eternity surrounded him and filled him with an absolute certainty of heaven.

Consumed with feelings of emptiness, he needed fulfillment. Bridging the Gap is the story of that miraculous event and the life of fulfillment that followed.

Observe as the Holy Spirit guides Calvin through natural disasters and serious health issues, and feel the love as he takes into the mission field. Bridging the Gap celebrates the ordinary and illustrates the extraordinary results that occur during a lifetime lived for Christ.

Explanation of the Book:

My first experience with "death" happened on the night of July 2, 1984. Since then, books, movies, and television documentaries have popularized the term "near-death experience" to describe an event that has been experienced by millions of people who have been at death's door. But back in 1984 I was alone with my experience. I couldn't share it with anyone. From the book: "Coming back from death is a powerful and life-changing experience. Before I came back from death, I was told that I was coming back with a mission in life. My mission was not clearly defined for me at first, but I now find that each and every day it is being defined for me more clearly. The experience has set me upon a path of self-discovery and spiritual enlightenment that continues to provide me with glimpses into the afterlife--glimpses that I would now like to share with you. Prior to finding myself at death's door, I was not by nature inclined to share anything with anybody, but now I believe it is important that I share my experiences with you.

Explanation of the Book:

It's obvious from the bookshelves and the big screen that heaven is on everyone's mind. All of us long to know what life after death will be like. Bestselling author John Burke is no exception. For decades, he has been studying accounts of people who have had near-death experiences (NDEs). While not every detail of individual NDEs correlate with Scripture, Burke shows how the common experiences shared by thousands of survivors clearly point to the God of the Bible and the exhilarating picture of heaven he promises. Imagine Heaven is an inspirational journey through the Bible's picture of heaven, colored in with the real-life stories of heaven's wonders. Burke compares gripping stories of NDEs to what Scripture says about our biggest questions of heaven: Will I be myself? Will I see friends and loved ones? What will it look like? What is God like? What will we do forever? What about children and pets? This book will propel readers into an experience that will forever change their view of the life to come and the way they live life today. It also tackles the tough questions of heavenly reward and hellish NDEs. Anyone interested in NDEs or longing to imagine heaven more clearly will enjoy this fascinating and hope-filled book.
