Flight to Heaven Book Review/Giveaway!!

Flight to Heaven: A Plane Crash...A Lone Survivor...A Journey to Heaven--and Back

Captain Dale Black had an unforgettable and life changing experience forty years ago that he shares for the first time in his book Flight To Heaven.  In 1969 Dale is an athletic young man going his own way with his dreams high in the sky to become a pilot.  However, all of his plans were shockingly dashed when a routine flight ended in tragedy with two deaths and one survivor.  Dale was that survivor.  He was left with a broken body, but his spirit was forever changed.  During his painful recovery, Dale experiences God in surprisingly new ways.  Never in his life had he felt that he was in a love relationship with God and desired to do His will.  Dale's true story takes you to heaven and back and with eternity in mind, Dale learned to live his life sold out for God.

I was completely riveted to Dale's story and finished the book within two days.  I was amazed at how God took this prideful young man, stripped him of every worldly passion and gave him a deep desire to share God's love with others.  Dale sees things on this earth differently because of his outer body experience during the coma he was in after the accident.  I saw his courage and faith grow, but I also saw that he had very honest and heartfelt feelings that he shared with God.  Go on this journey to heaven with Dale and your heart and mind will be changed too.  I personally will thank Dale for having the peace from God to finally share his story so we can all grow in our faith.  It is amazing!
