Book "When Lightning Strikes" by Kay and Bobby Brunson

About the Book: (From Kay Brunson) If you are afraid of dying, wonder about Heaven, or can't visualize your loved one with Jesus, then this is the book for you to read. My husband, Bobby Brunson, was struck by lightning and died for 28 recorded minutes, only to return with a stunning, life-altering glimpse of the hereafter. Here, he recounts his journey to our Heavenly home and lends his perspective on death. Bobby shares his story with people in churches, hospitals, civic meetings, and any occasion that may present itself. Thousands have seen the expression of joy on his face when he talks about Jesus. His love in sharing his trip to Heaven with others is contagious, and his trust in God in the realities of everyday living is real. This is a message of hope for the terminally ill, a message of peace for those whose loved ones have passed on, and a book filled with his anticipation of seeing our Lord again. Bobby's message is simple: God loves us all the same, don't sweat the small stuff, and live life in a way to make Heaven your ultimate home. The story of Bobby walking on golden streets, talking with his deceased father, and holding the hand of Jesus make it a must read for those looking for assurance and a way to deal with death and dying. I have watched as Bobby has talked with people and witnessed their enthusiasm to talk with a man who talked with Jesus. His story never fails to touch them, and it won't fail to touch you.

My Review: This is an amazing book, very easy reading and very well written by Kay and Bobby and it is a boosting on your faith, if you have any doubts that Heaven is for real.
Although short in the sense that we could stay reading forever about Heaven, this book brings us the experience suffered by Kay Brunson and her husband, when he was hit by a lightning and stayed dead for 28 minutes. She had to exercise all her faith and find strength in Jesus. When he came back to life, his testimony was incredible. He described the looks of Heaven, his talking with his deceased father and holding the hand of Jesus. Very touching story. This should be a mandatory reading in every church as the testimony given by Bobby is straight forward in the sense that we do not have much time to repent from our sins.

This book was written by Kay and Bobby Brunson and it was published by CreateSpace. The authors were kind enough to provide me with a copy of the book so I could review it.
