- Author Bio
The true story of a medical doctor’s tragic drowning in a remote region of Chile, her miraculous return to life, and the remarkable new experience of God it provided her.
In 1999, orthopædic surgeon, wife, and mother, Dr. Mary Neal embarked on a South American adventure—a kayaking expedition in Chile. Through a series of events, Dr.Neal’s kayak slipped over a waterfall and became lodged deep under the water. Despite the efforts of her companions, she remained under water for too long and drowned. To Heaven and Back is Dr. Neal’s remarkable true story, her experience in heaven, encounters with angels, and her return to life. It’s also the tender story of her relationship with her son, whose spiritual journey paralleled her own. Most of all, it’s an authentic account of Dr. Neal’s newfound awareness of God in her life, her real and close relationship with Jesus, and a spiritual walk suddenly enhanced by her experience of heaven. To Heaven and Back will reacquaint you with the supernatural reality of your own faith and will enrich your personal walk with God.
