Review

"A Chicago area pastor, lecturer, and radio speaker, the author has written other books about Christian doctrine and life after death. This unabridged work has a positive if ominous message:  Do the right thing because no one will escape the judgment the Bible promises when we die. Using New and Old Testament verses, the likable speaker explains God’s teachings about judgment day and debunks alternative scenarios in the popular culture such as reincarnation, contact with the dead, near-death experiences, and the idea that we can escape final judgment. Listeners comfortable with biblical authority will find an enjoyable coherence in this audio, and a reassuring, uplifting tone in the author’s voice."

From the Back Cover

“One minute after you die will be either elated or terrified . . . and it will be too late to reroute your travel plans.”

When you slip behind the parted curtain, your life will not be over. Rather, it will be just beginning—in a place of unimaginable bliss or indescribable gloom. This updated edition of the bestselling One Minute After You Die opens a window on eternity with a simple and moving explanation of what the Bible teaches about death. Erwin W. Lutzer brings a biblical and pastoral perspective to such issues as:

¿ Channeling, reincarnation, and near-death experiences
¿ What heaven will be like
¿ The justice of eternal punishment
¿ The death of a child
¿ Trusting in God’s providence
¿ Preparing for your own final moment

Format: Paperback
Erwin Lutzer writes a compelling book about a topic sure to interest every one of us: what happens to you after you die. "One minute after we die we will either be elated or terrified. And it will be too late to reroute our travel plans."

First he reviews the commonly held opinions about death, near death experiences, the bright white light and experiences drawn from the modern entertainment industry. Why take the fantasy and myths from someone who had an altered state of consciousness or a near death experience as a witness? Far better to rely on someone who was really dead, dead in a tomb for three days and then raised from death to life. This is none other than Jesus Christ, the Son of God, uniquely qualified to reveal to us what is on the other side of death.

Using examples and explanations from the Holy Scriptures, Lutzer presents the bad news first, the descent into gloom for those who die in their sins. In contrast, for those who know Jesus Christ as their Saviour, death is an ascent to glory, with life continuing eternally in the New Jerusalem and all of the gifts and privileges for the redeemed in Christ. At the end of the book Lutzer shows how you can make sure that you will be ready when the final call comes by trusting solely on Jesus Christ for your salvation.

My father just died two months ago and this book caught my eye in the bookstore. I could not put it down, and read it in one night. It was so comforting, and let me know that as Christians, we really can face death with hope. It also let me know that death is a passage way to eternity with the Father...and comforted me tremendously.

I have really enjoyed this book and found it to be scripturally sound. A must-read for Christians who desire to see a preview of what is to come. It helps remove fear of death and challenges the Christian to live a more worthy life.

This book is an encouraging read for the Christian who is losing or has lost a loved one who is a believer. It helps to remove the fear of death. It also answers so many questions, and well, like about what is going on when people think they are being contacted by the dead. I gave this book to my mother and she not only read it but keeps it on her coffee table to look at on a regular basis. It's also very comforting to know the beauty and the glory that awaits us when we finally go home to Jesus.

This book answers many questions about what happens when you die, with emphasis from a Christian perspective. It was illuminating and had good scripture references. It was especially interesting to be listening to RC Sproul's (Reformed) tape-of-the-month tapes on this subject at the same time. It was like they were both reading from the same script. Come to think of it, they were!
The reading is simple and broken down into easily manageable chapters, which makes good reading for those times when you only have ten minutes or so at a time. The level is good for both new Christians and more mature ones and even for non-Christians (an invitation is given). Definitely worth reading and something you might want to leave laying out so visitors can see it (they might want to borrow it).

This book answered many of my questions about when and where you go after death. It helped me become a better Christian. After reading this book I wanted all my friends and family to read it and get as excited about Christianity as I have. I can't understand anyone rejecting Christ's offer of eternal salvation after reading it.

Life does NOT end with the death of the PHYSICAL body. Life begins at conception and continues throughout eternity. We were created to know and love God, and for Him to know and love us. If you've never gotten to know Him in this Life through His Son, Jesus, you will briefly meet Him when you physically die and the door to Eternity opens. However, your meeting with Him will be short and you will find that while you should have been preparing for Eternity while on earth, you may have been "skipping" class. You will fail your final exam if you do not know, or don't wish to know anything about Jesus. In spite of what most religions teach about good works, the only way life throughout eternity will joyfully continue for you is to come to personally know Jesus, the Savior of all mankind. This book explains Heaven and Hell in real, easy-to-understand language. The entire subject of death is discussed, helping to alleviate fears about our future life when our physical life here ends. You may not choose to agree with the material presented. One Minute After You Die is too late to change your mind. Your location in eternity is unalterably fixed at the moment of death, by the choice you made on earth.

I have read this book many times over. It is Powerful and very Real since this entire book is Biblically based. I have given copys to friends and family in hopes & prayers that they will read it, repent of thier sins and make thier relationship to the Almighty thier Highest priority, before its to late. "Once we have passed through the door of death we can't pick up our suitcase and move out because we don't like the accommodations." ------------------- "He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him" (John 3:36)------------------------ Please read this book - it is well worth the cost.
