Terminally ill high school senior Carly Kilander started seeing angels months before she died, a common occurrence that brought her great comfort until one day she asked her mother why a little boy angel was packing her things to go. “Where am I going, Mom?” Carly asked. It was the next day that she passed away.
La Jolla resident Marisa Vallbona was on her daily run when she was praying to God asking him to show her a sign that he was real when she was struck by a car, suffered massive injuries and had a near death experience. What she found during those minutes on the other side led her to a complete certainty and unshakable faith today.
These stories and many more are told in Encountering Heaven and the Afterlife: True Stories from People Who Have Glimpsed the World Beyond (Bethany House, 2010) by James L. Garlow and Keith Wall.
Trusted pastor and bestselling author Garlow and experienced journalist Wall believe these amazing experiences reveal insights into live “on the other side.”
Teaming up again for this story-filled follow-up to the popular Heaven and the Afterlife, Garlow and Wall collected dozens of firsthand stories of near-death experiences, angelic encounters, and other startling occurrences that provide a captivating glimpse into the next life as well as the invisible spiritual world that surrounds us each day.
Writing from a biblical perspective, the authors offer a message of comfort, hope and inspiration – and a gripping reminder that life is more than what we see in the here and now.
These Real-Life Stories Give Insight to Questions Such As:
• What happens when we die?
• What is heaven really like?
• When we arrive, will we know people?
• What role do angels play in our lives?
• Are demons real?
