My Journey To Heaven: A Book Review

About The Book:


An unforgettable trip to the gates of heaven and back

As Marv Besteman lay in a hospital bed, visions of celestial beauty were the last thing on his mind. He had just had surgery to remove a rare pancreatic tumor. Alone after visiting hours ended, Marv tossed and turned, wanting more than anything else to simply sleep and escape the excruciating pain and misery for a while.

He was about to have an experience he never could have imagined--and could never forget.

In My Journey to Heaven, Marv Besteman shares the true story of his experience of heaven with astounding detail. You'll meet the angels who accompanied him to the gate, overhear his conversation with St. Peter, and feel the joy as he recognizes friends and family members who touched his life.
If you are grieving the loss of a loved one, or even if you just wonder about what happens after we die, you'll find peace, comfort, and encouragement in Marv's story.


About The Authors:

Marvin J. Besteman (1934-2012) was a graduate of Calvin College, a veteran of the US Army, and a retired bank president. He spoke frequently during his last few years of life about his experience of heaven. He and his wife, Ruth, are the parents of three children and the grandparents of four. Marv passed away in January of 2012, joyfully anticipating his return to heaven.
Lorilee Craker is the coauthor of the New York Times bestseller Through the Storm by Lynne Spears, and the author of several books on parenting and relationships. A frequent speaker, Craker is also an entertainment writer who has been interviewing celebrities and music artists for many years for the Grand Rapids Press. She lives in Michigan.

My Review:

What an amazing book of one's man's life-changing experience. The book is very well written, and I loved the personal descriptions of Marvin Besteman himself as he recalls his journey to heaven. The book covers his conversation with St. Peter, seeing angels and loved ones that he had lost previously. It is a book that helps us to understand what we may experience in the future when we have our own journey to Heaven one day. A great read that was also a quick one, and kept my interest throughout. The perfect gift idea for those in your life who are dealing with grief, or may be thinking about what happens in eternity. The most poignant moment was realizing that the author has since experienced his final homecoming to Heaven in January 2012.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
