I chose this book to read because I am interested in the after life Who isn t I find it interesting to read about what people have experienced 7 Lessons From Heaven turned out to be the kind of book that disturbs me It is a one size fits all experience based on meeting Jesus and other specifically Christian visions Why is this a problem Because we live in a world of many religions and many Gods and Goddesses Taking this narrow view, and not taking other religions into consideration marginalizes [...]
I heard the author Mary C Neal being interviewed recently Two words that she said stood out and made me know there was a message in her book for me I was right.
I have read Mary s previous book as well as 7 Lessons from Heaven This most recent book is so much powerful Her story is told with detail and passion As a primary care physician, I have the privileged of listening to life changing stories every day I pretty much only consider personal change if it is attached to a story Sometimes an individual can change me too by sharing their experience of trauma or challenge Mary s story can do that for her reader I don t think her readers will be bored hea [...]

7 Lessons from Heaven is divided into two parts The first part envelopes the death portion The second part is comprised of the fugue As a whole, it s almost a masterpiece.7 Lessons from Heaven How Dying Taught Me to Live a Joy Filled Life Mary C Neal, M.D.For whatever reason, when I picked up the book to begin reading it, I only wanted to get to the death part For whatever reason, that alludes me now, that s the part of the book for which I am most intrigued This was also a bit frustrating, as D [...]
Dr Neal s account is enchanting Especially in the beginning of the book, I found the story to be captivating and encouraging of personal internal exploration Her story is not unlike so many other accounts of NDE, and seems to back up the claims of others experiences She started to lose me near the end, and I m not sure exactly why I found myself disengaging, but I suspect it s because I made the mistake of doing an internet search on her the night before I finished the book I started questioning [...]
While the author was redundant several times in her book poor editing many of Dr Neal s beliefs on Heaven match what I have been taught as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints We have much revelation given about post mortal life and I firmly believe that some people do get to visit for a brief period of time, life beyond the veil , before they are brought back to mortality and all the pain and suffering that brings Her experiences can give hope and peace to those who are w [...]
Dr Neal had a credible Near Death Experience that convinced her of the reality of Jesus, heaven, and the unconditional love of God She recounts some of her experience in this book, but her main objective is to point out that the veil between eternity and us is thin and that we can experience the presence of God now if we just pay attention to what goes on around us Despite the pain she experiences in this reality, she lives a joy filled life because God is near She concludes the book with four [...]
This was a fascinating book to read Dr Reed, an orthopedic surgeon, writes about a time when shenearly drown and was unconscious for almost 30 minutes According to medical facts she did die Through that time she experienced heaven, a city of light And in this book, writes about what she learned She offers spiritual reflections of depth AND medical facts that give her experience reality and a story we can believe I so appreciated the many broad theological perspectives and different religions she [...]
I ve read quite a few books based on NDEs near death experiences and I did read the first book the author wrote on her experiences Both are worthy reads in their own ways She does expand her thoughts on the issue in this book and it is surprising how God can speak to people through these experiences particularly those in the medical field In this book, she gives her insight as to why NDE experiences should not be viewed as the hallucinations of an oxygen deprived brain The last half of the book [...]
An inspired follow up to To Heaven and Back in which Dr Neal shares her near death experience in hopes of helping others on their journey I loved the stories of how angels helped her in her life, meeting Jesus, and a city of light and how she learned how to live joyfully everyday Written with enthusiasm and compassion it felt to me that the author really wanted her readers to share in her joy and learn from this very personal experience The expression bringing tidings of comfort and joy comes to [...]
To add to your spiritual bookshelves an inspiring read Felt like her words got me back on track Am glad that I read it In fact, I offered it as a gift to a dear spiritual friend after finishing it Lots of food for thought Now, I just need to read, and read again, certain pages and paragraphs and take lots of notes regarding her words and thoughts so that I can really dig deep and meditate upon it all A good book to start the new year of 2018.
A follow up to To Heaven and Back, Dr Neal writes of her continued learning and understanding since her accident in which she experienced a life changing NDE Another book from which I journaled Recommend also to anyone who is having a particularly difficult time grieving the loss of a loved one, even if it s been years She lost a son a few years after her own accident.Absolute trust in God transforms into a joy filled life.
An interview on a radio station with Mary C Neal compelled me to read her book I felt that this was one of the most inspirational books about dying and heaven that I have ever read I won t go into the details about his book, but I feel that it is a very worthwhile and inspirational book.
A very well grounded and well written book on an actual experience of the authors NDE, her time in heaven and her encounter with Jesus and how it taught her to live her life to the fullest while back on earth She shares what she learned in this book that every reader can take for themselves and lead a changed life.
I have read several books on NDEs and found this one to be a great read Not only does the author give her experience in Heaven but also, she explores those of others from numerous sources She spends several chapters guiding the reader on how to see God s influence in our daily lives as well I really enjoyed this book
Brought me hope, peace, and joyWritten with honesty, love and wisdom, this is a book I will keep and read again and again, and strongly recommended for everyone Thought provoking, insightful, one of a kind
Life changerBask in the comfort the author feels wrapped in the arms of Jesus during her NDE Then learn how to feel the joy of heaven while still living here on earth I will be using this book over and over as a reference and an inspiration.
I was dissappointed in this book It was the same story as many others Being a doctor I thought she would bring in a new point of veiw There was nothing new or different that most Christians haven t learned from their own life journies Redundant at times.
I saw a show where Mary Neal was telling of her near death experience After hearing her I knew I wanted to needed to read this book I was not disappointed Mary does a great job of describing her experience She tells how through her NDE she has helped others with leaving this life with out fear.
7 Lessons from Heaven was a really great read for me Mary s words resonated with me and really got me thinking about my personal relationship with God I recommend this book and hope all those who read it get a little something out of it.
The author wrote a strong book until she went well beyond those 7 lessons She extended those lessons far beyond those lessons to the point of pontificating around topics that were only tangentially related if at all.
This book written after To Heaven and Back , explains Mary s meetings with Jesus This book helps another see where God was in the circumstances of life.
A book about hopeThis book is for all who search for answers about our next journey I give it 5 stars for believability.
Good follow up to her first book, I found a lot to highlight in this book Valuable insights about how to find of Heaven here on Earth.
Outstanding Very inspiring Thanks so much for this giveaway Truly beautiful read.
One of my favorite books of all time
The story of going to heaven and back is basically the same as in her other book Then she spends half the book prostelyzing Christianity.
