Daily Devotions Inspired by 90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper & Cecil Murphey

Subtitle is 90 Readings for Hope and Healing, Berkeley Publishing Group/Penguin Books.

These devotions are based on Don Piper's experience described in his best-selling book, 90 Minutes in Heaven: A True Story of Death and Life.

Written by veteran ghost-writer Cecil Murphey,  the devotions begin with a Bible verse and end with a short prayer. The content is based on responses to 90 Minutes in Heaven that Piper received through his website, the mail, and personal contact with readers at book-signings and speaking engagements. See my review of 90 Minutes in Heaven here.

The devotional book is an easy read, inspirational and well-written. Who would ever believe that a person could get so much inspirational material out of one experience? I salute Rev. Piper for using a master writer like Cecil Murphey to help him get his message out. I don't think he could have made a better choice. And, I'm glad he gives Murphey equal billing. Many well-known people use ghost-writers but don't give them the credit they deserve.

I like this book because it's only 90 days of devotions, one for every minute Piper said he was in heaven. You get the message without having to devote a whole year to one book.
