Heaven, an Unexpected Journey: One Man's Experience with Heaven, Angels, and the Afterlife (Paperback)
Encounter the glories of Heaven, the terrors of hell, and the stunning reality of the unseen world
When Jim Woodford died, he spent eleven hours in Heaven. When he came back, he was changed forever.
A successful airline pilot and businessman, Jim had it all--a loving family, substantial wealth, and all of the good things that come with it. But none of this was enough to satisfy the emptiness he felt in his heart. He always hungered for something more. And then one day, he died.
Jim was never a religious man. When it came to matters of God and faith, he was ambivalent. But as he lay in the hospital bed, clinically dead for more than 11 hours, his consciousness was transported to the wonders of Heaven and the horrors of hell. When he returned to this world, he brought back the missing piece his soul had been longing for.
Join Jim Woodford on this unforgettable journey into the afterlife
Awaken to the vivid sights, sounds and sensations that you can enjoy in Heaven forever.
Be inspired by detailed descriptions of the "contrails of prayer" in Heaven's skies, the "sticky love" of God, what it feels like to hug an angel, and more
Encounter the chilling realities of hell, and the sharp claws of destruction that threatened to pull Jim into eternal darkness.
Take comfort in the "six simple words" that led Jim into the Presence of Christ
Whether you need hope for tomorrow or strength for today, this story is your invitation to a radical transformation
