People I Met at the Gates of Heaven

Who Is Going to Be There Because of You?

By Don Piper and Cecil Murphey

  • Hardback
  • £16.99

Picking up where the bestselling 90 Minutes in Heaven left off, author Don Piper reveals for the first time the sacred, intimate details of the people who met him at the gates of heaven and the profound impact they had on his faith on earth.

Piper, who suffered a horrific accident and was clinically dead for 90 minutes, returned to life only to go through a painful recovery, tells of his "welcoming committee" in heaven and the significant role each of them had on his earthly life. Their words and actions impacted him for eternity.

People I Met at the Gates of Heaven continues the heaven conversation that is of such interest to people and shows how we can and should influence others on earth for heaven's purposes, just as those who preceded Don to heaven influenced him.

At the end of each chapter there will be questions for further reflection or group discussion. As well, Piper and his writing partner Cecil Murphey have included a Q&A section at the back of the book-questions people have most often asked Piper about what heaven is like, who is there, and what they can expect when they die.

This all-new, delightful, revealing book will not only answer your questions about heaven but it will also challenge you to answer Jesus' call to "draw all people unto Me."

Next Level Thinking

Joel Osteen
Authors:
Joel Osteen

Joel Osteen, #1 bestselling author and pastor of Lakewood Church, invites you to set aside the shortcomings of the past and step into a new level of victory and favor.We all have things that are trying to hold us back: guilt from past mistakes, temptations that we can't seem to overcome, or dysfunctions that have been passed down. It's easy to learn to live with these problems and accept them as who we are. We can all find a reason to live like we're at a disadvantage and become negative and bitter-we came down with an illness, somebody walked out of a relationship, our boss overlooked us. But we have to say, "I'm done making excuses. I'm not going to let the past keep me from moving forward and benefitting from the good things God has in store." It is time to say, "It is finished."In his new book, NEXT LEVEL THINKING, Joel Osteen writes that we weren't created to go through life weighed down by addictions, dysfunction, guilt, or the past. God created us to be free. Joel encourages readers to leave behind the negative mindsets, the scarcity mentality, and the limitations others have put on us, and shows us how to step into new levels of victory, new levels of favor.

Story in the Stars

Joe Amaral
Authors:
Joe Amaral

Thousands of words have been written about the first ten words in the Bible: "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth," a simple and profound statement that has ignited a firestorm of debate and controversy. People often only focus on the "how" and "when" of creation, but Story in the Stars explores the "why." Why did God create such a vast universe? Why did He choose the sun and moon to light our paths? Why did He design images with stars in the night sky?The Bible is very clear when it states that God created, named, and positioned all of the stars of the universe in their place in a very specific way-a way that tells us the greatest story ever to be told. In Luke 21:25 Jesus says, "There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars." Signs are meant to point us towards something: Jesus. Story in the Stars takes an in-depth look at the Bible and all the signs God mapped out through constellations, planets, and even the way the Earth is tilted. We are uniquely designed by God, and He loves us so much that He ensured a way for all inhabitants of the earth, through all of time, to see the messages of salvation and redemption that He painted in the stars.

Pull It Off

Julianna Zobrist
Authors:
Julianna Zobrist

Only when we can come to grips with our worthwhileness will we ever begin to step out in bravery and confidence and brilliance."I could never pull that off!" How many times have we heard that? How many times have we felt that? Well, if artist and musician Julianna Zobrist had a dollar for every time she heard that, she'd be worth her weight in gold. Notorious for her daring fashion and bold creative perspective, Julianna digs deep into her own life to expose why we feel we can't "pull it off." Whether it's fashion, creative expression, parenting, marriage, or daring to go 100 percent at a career, the greatest negative force you will fight against is yourself. In PULL IT OFF, Julianna reveals how we can be transparent and vulnerable and yet secure and confident enough to walk through life facing our fears.PULL IT OFF is broken into three parts that address the issues of authority, identity, and security, to reveal the root issue of where our fears stem from. Julianna walks readers through how to maximize our true identities and lean into our unique gifts due to a grounded belief in our acceptance of others, our acceptance by God, and ultimately, the acceptance of ourselves.When we are secure, we believe we are worthwhile and can, indeed, pull it off!
