My Journey to Heaven

I received a copy of My Journey to Heaven by Marv Besteman and Lorilee Craker from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
As Marv Besteman lay in a hospital bed, visions of celestial beauty were the last thing on his mind. He had just had surgery to remove a rare pancreatic tumor. Alone after visiting hours ended, Marv tossed and turned, wanting more than anything else to simply sleep and escape the excruciating pain and misery for a while.
He was about to have an experience he never could have imagined--and could never forget.
In My Journey to Heaven, Marv Besteman shares the true story of his experience of heaven with astounding detail. You'll meet the angels who accompanied him to the gate, overhear his conversation with St. Peter, and feel the joy as he recognizes friends and family members who touched his life.
If you are grieving the loss of a loved one, or even if you just wonder about what happens after we die, you'll find peace, comfort, and encouragement in Marv's story.
I love reading stories about people who've been granted a glance at Heaven.  Marv's story is a little different than others I've read.  He gets to see and talk to Peter, 5 very close people, and lots of babies.  Marv talks a lot about the sky in Heaven.  He says it's like the 4th of July with all kinds of fireworks exploding in so many colors - some he's not ever seen on Earth.  His journey changes his life forever, but then who's wouldn't be changed?
