Book Description

19 Jun 2012 Random House Large Print
A kayak accident during a South American adventure takes one woman to heaven — where she experienced God’s peace, joy, and angels — and back to life again.
 
 
In 1999 in the Los Rios region of southern Chile, orthopedic surgeon, devoted wife, and loving mother Dr. Mary Neal drowned in a kayak accident. While cascading down a waterfall, her kayak became pinned at the bottom and she was immediately and completely submerged. Despite the rescue efforts of her companions, Mary was underwater for too long, and as a result, died.
 
To Heaven and Back is Mary’s remarkable story of her life’s spiritual journey and what happened as she moved from life to death to eternal life, and back again. Detailing her feelings and surroundings in heaven, her communication with angels, and her deep sense of sadness when she realized it wasn’t her time, Mary shares the captivating experience of her modern-day miracle.
 
Mary’s life has been forever changed by her newfound understanding of her purpose on earth, her awareness of God, her closer relationship with Jesus, and her personal spiritual journey suddenly enhanced by a first-hand experience in heaven.  To Heaven and Back will reacquaint you with the hope, wonder, and promise of heaven, while enriching you own faith and walk with God.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading 21 Dec 2013
By Jules
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Interesting book, faith building for sure and written with complete integrity. One or two bits with a bit of questionable theology but doesn't spoil it in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars TO HEAVEN AND BACK BY MARY C. NEAL. 23 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love this type of true story where our unseen 'Helpers' deliver us from almost certain death. Delightfully written by its author. It is also a tear jerker as she had to overcome great human loss and saw it as 'part of the plan'. Would highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars a triumph of love and endurance 23 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One of those books that will stay with you long after you've put it down. Im grateful to Mary for putting pen to paper and sharing it. Wonderfully reassuring, uplifting and incredibly moving. I'm so glad I bought it . I think it would be good for those who have belief in God, those who have lost their faith and for even those who have no faith in God x

5.0 out of 5 stars A well written message of comfort... 2 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book quite a few months ago but I have to say it's warm and comforting message has stayed with me. I found the book deeply moving in many ways and felt very emotional whilst reading it as well as much closer to God upon completing it. Dr Mary Neal has written the book in such a way that you feel you are hand-in-hand with her as you read of her joy in her relationship with God as well as the pain and heartbreak which life has brought her. Ultimately the book is a wonderful and uplifting journey and I would recommend it to anyone who is open-minded enough to truly appreciate it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Shelf 25 May 2012
Format:Paperback
`To Heaven and Back' is top-shelf. It ranks together with Heaven Is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back and The Reincarnation of Albino Luciani: In Search of the Human Soul as the best near-death experience books ever written. Well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars to heaven and back 25 May 2012
By pauline
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A lovely easy to read book. The reason I bought it was because I have recently had two bereavements, a brother and a sister. I think when this happens we all look for comfort, and I certainly found it in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening 19 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was recommended to me as I had lost my husband in a drowning incident and was looking for answers which no one had been able to give. Yes, I knew the facts but the answers I wanted were: what happened? How did he feel? Did he know he was drowning? Was he frightened? This book gave a clear insight into what happened to the author when she was underwater and drowning and was able to answer my questions in a way that satisfied my need.
I would recommend it to anyone who has lost a loved one in a drowning situation as it could give you answers which you need to be able to move on.
