On his way home from a church conference in 1989, Don Piper’s Ford Escort was struck head-on by an 18-wheeler. He was killed instantly — pronounced dead by four sets of paramedics. Shortly after the accident, a pastor from the same conference arrived on the scene and began praying for “the man in the red car.” God worked a miracle and sent Don back to a now-broken body. To date, 34 surgical procedures have taken place. He walks only as a result of miraculous and in some cases medically unexplainable circumstances. During the time he was dead, Piper was granted the extreme privilege of glimpsing Heaven itself.
Since the release of his bestselling book co-authored with his writing partner Cecil Murphey,90 Minutes in Heaven – a True Story of Death and Life (Fleming Revell, 2004), Don has traveled across the country and around the world sharing his amazing story. His message is simple … We can have a better life now and an eternal life someday through faith in Jesus Christ! In three years, Don has reached millions of people through his writing and speaking. A second book released in late 2006, Daily Devotions Inspired by 90 Minutes of Heaven(Berkeley), contains heartwarming stories compiled from his extensive travel and personal ministry. Don’s third book, Heaven Is Real: Lessons on Earthly Joy, from the Man Who Spent 90 Minutes in Heaven (Berkeley), was released in August 2007.
Don Piper Ministries is dedicated to spreading the Gospel through one-day rallies, conferences, and revivals via Don’s remarkable testimony delivered in print and in person. Currently booking dates into 2011, Don Piper Ministries continues to trust the Lord as He guides these efforts, changing lives and healing hearts.
