Get to know Don
Author Don Piper has heard the critics of his claim that he once visited heaven, and he doesn’t blame them. If it didn’t happen to him, he says, he’d probably be a critic, too. “I think that’s why it happened to me. I was a Southern Baptist preacher on the way home from a conference of Southern Baptist preachers, and I got killed along the way. I saw heaven. It really happened, and it’s the most real thing that ever happened to me. Whether folks believe it or not, I don’t really blame them.”
It’s all about hope. Hope for eternal life someday and hope for a better life than we’re living, on the way to eternal life. That’s what happened, and that’s Don’s story. He saw heaven and came back, and when he came back, he had a gut-wrenching recovery. He’s now met people who have gone through bankruptcies and divorces and tornadoes and hurricanes and losses of loved ones. They’re trying to figure out how to get through. Don shares that he just had to make a decision one morning at the hospital, that even though he’d been knocked down, he wasn’t going to be knocked out, and that God could use what happened to him to bless others.
