Waking Up In Heaven
A True Story of Brokenness, Heaven, and Life Again
by Crystal McVea & Alex Tresniowski
The nine minutes on December 10th, 2009 when Crystal McVea, 32 years old at the time, stopped breathing, are the pivotal minutes of this book. Crystal spent that time in heaven, overwhelmed by the love of God and what she saw there. Of course, I found her account of what she remembers of the experience fascinating. But the major part of the book is her life-story - her journey from brokenness and scepticism to wholeness and faith. That story is what made the book difficult to put down. Crystal believes that God brought her back to life on earth with her husband and four children for a specific purpose - to tell her story to anyone who will listen. And it is well worth listening to!
