Valerie Paters - 2014
Once extracted from the mangled metal, and suffering from massive injuries, Valerie was hospitalized and placed on life support while doctors waited to harvest her organs. But Valerie was more alive than she had ever been. As she stood in the radiant presence of Jesus, He wrapped her into Himself, assuring her of His love and of the promise that heaven is only a breath away. Heaven Is a Breath Away is a thrilling firsthand account of the home that awaits Christians when they draw their last breath here on earth. With open arms, Christ welcomes to heaven those who belong to Him. Rarely has this vision been told in such exquisite detail. It will undoubtedly comfort those who have lost loved ones or are near death themselves. Heaven Is a Breath Away gives hope and encourages faith by sharing the heaven Jesus promised-a real place, magnificent in scope and beauty, permeated with iridescence, and alive with divine energy and love.
God Still Speaks: Are We Listening?
A.W. Tozer - 2014
W. Tozer was a man who knew the voice of God. He shared this experience with every true child of God. With all those who are called by the grace of God to share in the mystical union that is possible with Him through His Son Jesus. Tozer fought against much dryness and formality in his day.

Here are two writings by Tozer that touch on the heart of this goal. Revelation is Not Enough and The Speaking Voice. Also included is a bonus chapter The Menace of the Religious Movie. This is meat to sink your spiritual teeth into. Tozer's writings will show you the way to satisfy your spiritual hunger.

Passion & Purpose: Believing the Church Can Still Change the World
Jimmy Seibert - 2014
Now, in the book PASSION & PURPOSE: Believing the Church Can Still Change the World (Clear Day Publishing), Jimmy Seibert, Senior Pastor of Antioch Community Church and Founder & President of Antioch Ministries International, tells the firsthand account of a church that is cultivating a global impact. With an intentional focus on intimacy with Jesus, discipleship, church planting and evangelism, Antioch Ministries International has become one of the fastest growing evangelical movements in the country as well as a common case study among students of church planting and mission work. Based out of the Antioch Community Church of Waco, TX, the Antioch Ministries International movement is spearheaded by Seibert. After deciding to follow Jesus at any cost, Seibert started Antioch Community Church in one of poorest, most crime-ridden and drug-infested part of Waco. Along with a small group of likeminded believers, Seibert embarked on a journey to simply say "yes" to the next thing God was doing. The result has been an astounding adventure of walking with the Holy Spirit, building intimate community, and living with radical intentionality. "God has called us to be a people who passionately pursue Him with all our hearts and are deeply committed to His purposes. Nothing more. Nothing less. Now after 26 years, we feel like we can tell our story with integrity," explains Seibert, when asked about the timing of this book about Antioch and his personal journey. Seibert speaks with humility. A leader who has purposefully avoided the spotlight, Seibert prefers the role of teacher who seeks to encourage and motivate the church. "We have a heart for the body of Christ to believe in the church again, and to know that Jesus is enough." The once small gathering has turned into a network of 78 churches around the world in 24 nations, with 30 churches in the United Stated alone. At the original Waco, Texas home base, more than 3,000 people now attend regularly, with 170 Lifegroups meeting in members' homes across the city. Since its infancy, the church has focused on growing in relational and spiritual depth at home, and sending the message of the Gospel to the ends of the earth. The movement has inspired hundreds of Antioch members to leave their lives of comfort to proclaim the Gospel around the world, often in remote and even hostile environments. Currently, Antioch has more than 200 long-term missionaries who are active around the globe. In 2001, two of Antioch's missionaries who were in Afghanistan, Heather Mercer and Dayna Curry, were arrested and held prisoner by the Taliban. The captivity-and the missionaries' miraculous rescue-became a major international news story after the 9/11 attacks, bringing Antioch's evangelical intentionality into the international conversation. PASSION & PURPOSE: Believing the Church Can Still Change the World chronicles the movement's humble beginnings, shares testimonies of powerful encounters with God along the way, and inspires with its rock-solid belief that the local church is God's "Plan A" for reaching the corners of the earth with the good news of Jesus Christ. The book explains Antioch's vision to be a people with "a passion for Jesus and His purposes in the earth." Early responses to PASSION & PURPOSE have begun pouring in. The book foreword is written by Max Lucado who has been acquainted with Seibert and the vision for Antioch Community Church for many years., In the foreword, Lucado states, "To visit Antioch Community Church is to visit the book of Acts; To hear their passion is to hear the heart of God; To listen to their stories of global impact makes you realize...it can happen today!"
Afterlife Adventures: Life After Death Stories | What Happens when We Die | Is there Proof?
William Fergus Martin - 2017
Afterlife Adventures lets you compare different people's experiences from the Afterlife. Is there life after death? Is there proof? What is it like to die? What really happens in Heaven? In this book you can compare different people's accounts of what it was like for them to 'die', what happened to them next, and what happened after that... The Afterlife stories include people who passed over from a heart attack, from an accident, from a long illness, in a battle zone and so on.Afterlife Adventures includes a whole chapter, When a Child 'Dies', dedicated to the heart-rending issue of what happens when a child passes over. This includes poignant messages from children who have been able to come back and tell their parents about their experience. You will discover why parents of children who 'die' before they were born are in for a big surprise when they pass over (hint: life starts at conception and the child continues to mature in the Afterlife).Get tips on being prepared for the move over there in the chapter: How to Have a Good Afterlife. Get to know about the 'nitty gritty' of the practical realities of the Afterlife. Understand why some people find it hard at first to believe that they have actually 'died' - as passing over was so easy. One man was so busy chatting away to his gardener that he did not even notice that he had 'died' till he saw that the gardener was panicking about something. He looked down and was bemused to see his own body lying on the ground. He started to wonder, "Am I dead?" and then saw his long-missed mother there to welcome him with open arms.Be reassured as to why the average person has a far better experience in the Afterlife than on Earth. Learn how the religious idea of a 'Judgment Day' is really a metaphor for the Law of Attraction as it works out in the Afterlife realms. You will also discover why there is no such thing as 'eternal punishment' and that the path of progress and evolution is open to everyone.Explore ideas about what people actually 'do' in the Afterlife and why you don't have to float around on a cloud and get bored. We also look at big questions such as how Afterlifers (people in the Afterlife) experience God, the role of important religious figures in the Afterlife and issues such as what causes some people to become Earth Bound and how to help them.The chapter on Reincarnation and Rebirth offers thought-provoking ideas that give a very different slant on this fascinating topic. We explore how connecting with a Group Soul allows us to fully experience an 'incarnation' without having to actually incarnate.Afterlife Adventures only asks you to have an open mind and explore what people have to say about their own passing over. Why not replace superstition with facts; replace ignorance with practical information; replace grief with hope and comfort; and replace fear and dread with love and wonder?

Sylvia Browne - 2002
In each case, the words were "infused" into her by her spirit guide Francine, and of course, by God. Granted, these words are a passive mode of prayer, yet the goal is to recharge your spiritual battery so that you'll be able to go out into the world and do God's work. "Over many years of public work, people have often asked me how to pray. My answer is simple, 'Just talk to God, and make your life a living prayer." "These prayers will lift your soul and let you magnify the Lord. They have done so for me and thousands of others. Many miracles have occurred by the power of prayer, and now I want to share these commanding words with you."
