From the Back Cover
It was a beautiful winters day, showing no signs of what was to come. Steve Sjogren, pastor of one of Americas fastest growing churches, went into the hospital for routine gall bladder surgery and diedtwice. What began as a tragic medical accident led to Steves encounter with death, an experience of unimaginable peace and some surprises, with comforting words from God, a meeting with an angel, and seeing those who had died before him.
In The Day I Died, you will read Steve Sjogrens unforgettable story and catch a glimpse of the hereafter. Discover how he learned a myriad of lessons about hearing Gods voice in times of crisis, how he came to trust God in a new way during the recovery process and how his life has changed as a result of this experience. If you, or someone you know, are fearful of dying, curious about heaven or simply desiring to live life to its fullest, this encouraging book could change how you view life and death.

The author does a great job describing what it's like to be severely injured and disabled, and learning to live and cope with major life-changes due to diminished health and physical ability. This would be a good book for those who have recently become disabled or had a traumatic injury, or for their friends/relatives. He also has strong views on the topic of living wills and the "right to die" movement.
However, he only spends about two pages mentioning the actual details of his encounter with God, what he saw while "dead," etc. When people see the title, "THE DAY I DIED," this is what they expect to read about. I was a little disappointed that he didn't tell more of what it was like to have this experience of God, and I suspect other readers would agree. Other Christians have related their near-death experiences in book-length accounts (see "90 Minutes in Heaven" by Don Piper, or "Return From Tomorrow" by George Ritchie.)
Two particular irritating excerpts describe how he returns to his church on Easter Sunday to a standing ovation, and people gushing about how incredibly amazing and awestruck they were by his sermon. He says, "Before my Gardens appearance (not at all to be confused with or even slightly juxtaposed with Jesus' ultimate Garden appearance)..." Please. Then, he goes into a very, very long-winded description of some stupid video he put together about his experience, saying, "The bridge scene was side-splitting physical comedy". Yeah, I don't think so, judging by the play by play description. If you don't understand why I felt put off by those things, this is probably a book for you.
I was disappointed that Steverino gave so little verbiage to the actual "Day He Died." All the lessons he took from that Day are all fine and good. But, I bought a book about what happens when you die. Not how to live after a near death experience. Something that happens to very few of us!
To sum it up, the author was (in his own estimation) a terrific person before his experience, but now he's even more wonderful.
