I was blessed to receive a copy of this book from Tyndale for review. All of the thoughts and opinions expressed in this review were my own. I would never recommend a product I didn’t love and use for my own family.
Have you or anyone close to you ever gone through an event that was traumatic enough to shake your faith? Do you ever wonder if God is really with us as we pass on from this world? Do you have trouble seeing the signs that God is with us and in complete control of everything we go through? Then Appointments with Heaven is a must-read for you!
This book goes through the life of Dr. Reggie Anderson, from his beginnings as a small boy praying for a pony, to a young man traumatically losing several very close family members, all the way to coping with the loss of his father. He shows in such an inspiring way how God was always with him, even when he was pushing God away. Dr. Anderson explains how following the promptings of the Lord allowed him to be a part of some great experiences, and also be there to help others through some very challenging experiences (including his close friend, Steven Curtis Chapman).
Even though this book is technically an autobiography, it is such an inspiring story! I am so encouraged when I see someone truly following God’s plan for them, even when they may not understand it fully. The stories he tells of the encounters of the afterlife he had with his patients as a country doctor give me hope to press on in this world. We do have a future waiting for us where there is no pain and suffering! And what an indescribable time that will be when we are face to face with Jesus in Heaven!
So if you or someone you know need a little encouragement as you muddle through the day-to-day chaos and heartache this life can bring, I highly recommend you look into this book! I already have several people in mind in my life that would benefit from the uplift this book can provide.
Just to sweeten the deal, if you leave a comment and tell me that you shared this post on some type of social media, I have a FREE Devotional from Dr. Reggie Anderson called 30 Daily Appointments with Heaven: Devotions to Bring the Hope and Joy of Heaven to Your Every Day. It is just as wonderful as the book! I hope you will be as blessed by the book and the devotional as I was!
