About the Author

Richard Sigmund was born on March 19, 1941, in Des Moines, Iowa. His grandfather was praying as Richard was being born, and the Lord told him, "Through him, I will answer prayer." Whose prayer? The prayer of his great-grandfather, who was a Spirit-filled, Jewish, circuit-riding preacher during the Civil War.The Lord first appeared to Richard when he was four years old. As a child, he started preaching in a country Methodist church in Iowa. His grandfather knew healing evangelist Jack Coe Sr., and Rev. Coe brought Richard to Omaha in 1949 to preach. While the boy who became known as "Little Richard" preached, the anointing came upon him, and he saw angels.When he was about nine years old, he presented the gospel before the meetings of world-renowned evangelist and miracle worker A. A. Allen. Richard was with Allen for about ten years; tutors enabled him to maintain his schoolwork while he was on the road. Also during that time, Richard was with evangelist Lee Girard and presented his testimony during William Branham meetings.In his early twenties, Richard had a fruitful ministry for a time in Phoenix, Arizona, and then held tent meetings with considerable success among the Navajo in northern Arizona and in other revival meetings around the country. In 1974, while he was ministering at a small church in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, he was declared dead for eight hours after a traffic accident, during which he had his experiences of heaven and hell.Over the years, Richard has preached the gospel through television programs, radio broadcasts, and speaking engagements. He has been in meetings with Kathryn Kuhlman and Oral Roberts, and he was interviewed by Pat Robertson. Richard has ministered in England, Scotland, Australia, South Africa, Kenya, and many other countries. In South Africa, he followed David Nunn and Morris Cerullo in a special series of meetings. It was Rex Humbard who encouraged him to tell his story of a place called heaven.In the early 1990s, Richard met his wife, Priscilla, a fellow native of Iowa. After living in Texas and Missouri, they returned to Iowa, where their organization, Cleft of the Rock Ministries, is now based. Richard is associated with World Bible Way Fellowship.

For the last several years, I have studied near death experiences. There have been many fine books which have helped me understand more about what heaven and hell are like. Of all I've read on heaven, this is one of the best. I've given out 5 copies and every person who has read it has also said it's one of the best books they've read about heaven. You will love this book. I think every person should read it to get a greater excitement about Our future home.

Reading this book the first time was a holy experience for me ~ it took me to a place I can't wait to visit again. I shared my copy with a friend and immediately ordered a new one!

In the meantime I read the 'daughter-in-law' review and was disheartened. I questioned whether or not to share this book based on that review (from someone who has never read the book) and I decided ABSOLUTELY!

I will not know in this lifetime if the author embellished the story. And honestly I don't care. This book opens the gates of heaven, brings Jesus front and center and makes you want to live your life on this Earth for God.

If you want to see heaven in a way that most of us could never imagine ~ I HIGHLY recommend it! If you want to become more conscious of how much Jesus loves us ~ I HIGHLY recommend it! If you want to become more aware and be inspired to start living your life for God's glory ~ I HIGHLY recommend it!

I just finished reading this book again and I LOVE IT! Any book that brings you closer to the heart of God, that brings you comfort about dying, that comforts you when you've lost a loved one, that encourages and inspires you to live a better life on this earth ~ that's a book worth reading!

I can't wait for that sweet someday ... and if it's even half as fabulous as this book paints ... it'll SOOOO be worth the wait!

I HIGHLY recommend this book. We are friends of the author and his wife. Everything he writes in this book is true. He is a humble man of God and is used by God to minister to people daily for healing, or wisdom and insight in their lives. I read his first book, "A Place Called Heaven" and this one goes even further and it has testimonies from people who experienced healing or witnessed a healing. Our son's story would have been in the book but it wasn't written up in time for the first printing. This is what happened to him... Our son had a serious back injury at work in 2005 which hindered him from working and kept him in pain most of the time. He had back surgery which didn't work and the doctor told him he would need another surgery and couldn't promise its' success either. We drove to Iowa to visit the Sigmunds in late Sept. of 2008 and during the time Richard was praying for our son in the hotel room, he was miraculously healed! He was able to pick up my husband out of his chair right then! He is STILL healed over one year later and back to working. We are SO thankful to God for this. Well, this book is a wonderful portrayal of all that Richard saw when he was dead for 8 hours and experienced the glory of Heaven and the terror of hell. Please read it!

This book confirmed my thoughts about Heaven and other books I've read with regard to similar experiences. I lost my 30 year old son last year and this book comforted and encouraged my heart. I can't wait for our final reunion for all eternity!

This is by far the best first-hand experience book on Heaven that I've ever read. I've read 90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper which was very good. However, Mr. Sigmund was in heaven for 8 hours and explains his experiences with such vivid recall that the two books can hardly be compared except to say that Mr. Piper's book was an appetizer and Mr. Sigmund's book was a 5-course meal. This book is not to be missed!!

In short, Mr. Sigmund does an excellent job of describing the undescribable. He was given a heavenly tour, and the book is a real page turner from start to finish. Knowing a bit more about what Christians can expect up in heaven make the little troubles in life here on earth much less significant. I know there may be skeptics out there, just as there are people who refuse to accept Jesus as the only way of getting to heaven. Without any question, I believe every word of this book. It is so thought provoking that I intend to read it again and would highly recommend it to anyone who is studying heaven.

When I compared My Time in Heaven with other chronicles of individuals' visits to heaven, the major difference I found was the extensive touring of heaven that this author was allowed. In that sense, I found the details of his visit hard to accept. I am not saying he did not visit heaven, only that what he felt was revealed to him seems so far beyond what has been revealed to others as to be a sensationalized account of heaven. I'm afraid I am left to question if he has inadvertently embellished his facts.

Beyond those concerns, this book provides a detailed look into the structures, community and unique physical laws of heaven. If you have been wanting an indepth peak, here it is.

What we should be looking forward to about heaven is God. And therefore, our focus should be knowing more about God. As Jesus said in John 17:3, eternal life is knowing the only true God and Jesus Christ whom He sent. And we know Him by reading His Word. We are told that Scripture provides us with everything we need. If we start looking elsewhere for something more then we are on dangerous ground.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 - All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

In this case, I’d say that the author has unfortunately been lead astray and is puffed up with pride. I don’t think he understands that salvation is by God's grace alone and is therefore, teaching more of a salvation by our works throughout the book.

There are many, many problems with this book, but here are some specific ones:

***Contradicts Scripture:***
"In addition, legions of angels were dispatched to convict people of sin."
Angels don’t convict people of sin. The Holy Spirit does (John 16:8).

He claims he saw Jesus when he was 4 years old and Jesus said, "Son, I'm going to take you to the other place," Jesus now said. "I want to do more through you. Richard, I need your help. You were never designed to be more than what you are. This is heaven, where I want My people to come."
This directly contradicts God’s Word in at least two places. God does not need anything from us, as Paul said in Acts 17:25.
