Many books promise to tell the whole story, but few tell the true story.

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.

I just finished reading Steve Sjogren's latest book, and let me tell you it is the most powerful and intense book he has ever written. It will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotion (you will laugh, cry, and even sometimes get angry) as it challenges every preconceived notion you may have had about God and the afterlife, but more importantly, it will give you a blueprint for how to live a life that is adventurous as you get on board with the style of Jesus: walking through life constantly in tune with the Father's heart of spreading forgiveness and kindness during your everyday life. This incredible book removes the complication of religion and church and boils down to the brass tacks and tasks of the type of lifestyle Jesus modeled for us: Living an Isaiah 58 lifestyle: "This is the type of religion I have called you to: care for the widow and orphan, and show kindness to those you encounter" as you make your normal life errands by simply taking time to notice what they need in the moment and doing your best to offer a slight touch of mercy as they cross your path. Life is short, and the biggest lesson you can learn is that there is nothing random about kindness.

Author Steve Sjogren's HEAVEN'S LESSONS- Ten Lessons I Learnt About God When I Died is a fascinating read. Rarely do I read a book twice, let alone twice in a row but Sjogren's journey was so exciting I just had to reread to ensure not missing one thing. I thank Booksneeze for the ability to read his story in exchange for my thoughts. This book will convince the reader that miracles were not done away with years ago and that God still speaks to his people today. He is a real God wanting to get closer to his children. Imagine going into the hospital for a very simple procedure like having your gall bladder removed only to find out you don't have a gall bladder. The surgeons accidently cut into a main artery which leaks blood into the back of Steve's body and it's nearly an hour later before they discover their error. By now Sjogren is flat-lining. Having coded for close to seven minutes can cause enormous damage to the body. Although Steve suffers with some necrosis he is protected by major difficulties because of the Grace of God. The Book describes in depth the glory of Heaven that he witnessed and the meeting with Angels. Not to take from the author's testimony, it is up to you to read. There is shocking revelations about Bob Dylan and Robert (Bob) Kardashian who was an Elder in the church at one time. Yes, Kim's dad. I found great comfort and joy in this book and hope that everyone gets a chance to read it. Don't shortchange yourself!

By Steve Sjogren (Thomas Nelson Publishers, 2013)

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.
