Dying to Live: How Near Death Experiences Transform Our Faith (Paperback)
In 2009 author Nigel Mumford was stricken with H1N1 Swine Flu. He was in a coma for three weeks, and in the ICU for three months as his organs shut down and his body hurtled towards death. During the evening of October 23, the doctors believed they had done all they could do for their dying, comatose patient.
Then he died and went to Heaven.
The author recounts his actual experiences of visiting Heaven several times while in a coma, and describes how his life has changed in amazing ways. This book looks into the mystery of faith and the power of prayer during a journey through the valley of the shadow of death. Mumford had five visions of Heaven while in the coma, and all are described in this powerful journey into death and back again.
Dying to Live brings a message of hope in the face of certain medical death and disenchantment. Mumford's personal experiences of near death are eloquently captured by St. Paul, who said, "I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know--God knows."
