Steve Sjogren suffered a terrible medical accident that left him dead on the operating table for a significant amount of time. During that time and the recovery that ensued, life turned upside down for the author.
Heaven's Lessons by Steve Sjogren is many things - easy to read, insightful, fascinating - but above all it is refreshingly honest. Most writers will do everything they can to show you their best side when telling their own story. Sjogren tells a balanced story in which the things he was most committed to changing involved his own heart and life.
A book that honest must be read. Highly recommended. Entertaining, easy to read and challenging to think about.
Lying down on the operating table for what was to be a routine gallbladder removal surgery, the author's long, question-provoking, and mysterious journey began. Engaging words strung along the lines of the pages tell a captivating and life-changing story that the reader will not soon forget.
As the tale unravels with each clenching sentence, insightful beacons are shed into the author's life and out of the pages of the book, available for the reader to apply into his or her own life. "The overriding truth we must focus on mentally and hide in our hearts is this: God is at work doing something great with you right in the midst of struggles," (Sjogren, 2013, p. 75). The beautiful melodic alterations that occurred in the author's life in the midst of his struggles present waves of fresh hope, carefully packaged for the recipient, the reader.
This book is no ordinary memoir, for the author boldly inspires the reader to step up and take heed to the knowledge he gained from his traumatic and blessed experiences of having died and come back to life. Bound in a dark blue paperback with cloud designs encircling the title on the front cover, this book is one that will transform your perceptions about God, life, and the afterlife, and would make an excellent addition to your personal library and a great gift idea.
