At age nineteen, pilot Dale Black miraculously survived an airplane crash that killed the other two pilots on board. Hovering between life and death for three days, he had a breathtaking experience of heaven. Against all odds and with insurmountable injuries, Capt. Black recovered from his injuries and returned to fly airplanes as a professional pilot, airline pilot instructor, and jet flight examiner.

For forty years he kept the story to himself at the urging of his grandfather to “live” his experience rather than talk about it. The flight to heaven changed Dale’s life, and now he allows it to be told in hopes of encouraging others with this wondrous experience.

    " Totally inspiring. Uplifting and made me want to more in my life for Jesus my Saviour. The best part of the book I enjoyed, was his witnessing to Mr Green and leading him to salvation the day before he dies. Recommend to everyone!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelli | 2/8/2014

    " Warning: spoilers. While I'm not one to find fault with someone's personal experience, I had a hard time with this book. I'm a fellow Christian, and the book has some very inspiring stuff, but I don't know, some parts bothered me. Maybe I'll just leave the overall assessment at that. The ultimate disappointment was that he was about to learn what God's great gift for him was...and he vanished. But he never mentioned the gift again the whole entirety of the text. I kept waiting for him to sum things up talking about what he thought the gift might be, but he didn't. Yes, it's the man's glorious experience, but it's still literature and still needs to answer questions that he himself sets up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna Andersen | 1/31/2014

    " Excellent! I was moved and amazed how someone could survive a plane crash! Everyone should read this book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 1/31/2014

    " I read this book in one day...I just could not put it down. Amazing story that just draws you in from the beginning. It also made me think about my own faith. My husband saw it on the table and said he wanted to read it (shock!! He is NOT a reader!)...needless to say, HE read it in one day!!! So glad Capt. Black shared his story because it enriches those who read. "

    " Love me some Jesus, but don't love when people tell me how much they love him. And this guy LOOOVES Jesus. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridget | 1/18/2014

    " Capt. Dale Black shares a compelling story of living through a non-survivable plane crash and surrendering to the power of miracles. The greatest miracle is his transformation from a rebellious teenager to a faithful Christian, now passionate in his trust for God. This book recounts his journey to recover from severe head trauma and damage to his body. He gradually reveals his visions and sensations of Heaven, so lovely, intense, and detailed and yet still hard to imagine. Ultimately, his near death experience and his inner resolve shift his priorities and he makes many decisions that change his path in life. This is a gripping and uplifting book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 1/13/2014

    " Once started this book was very difficult to put down. An amazing story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debi | 12/17/2013

    " This one left me speechless; you just have to read it for yourself. An amazing true story about perseverance and determination. I couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 12/6/2013

    " This is definitely written for a Christian audience. I was expecting more about how he was able to fly planes again after surviving a crash but the simple reason was that his strengthened faith led him to. Not a great or a bad read, but I don't think I was his target market. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 11/7/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taryn | 7/14/2013

    " It has been a few weeks since I finished this book, but the thing I'm keeping from it is the need to have a immense love for EVERY person I come in contact with. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzie | 6/20/2013

    " Loved this story, not only because it was well-written and kept me glued to the pages all the way through, but because it taught me a lot about God. Many of Dale's prayers mirror ones that I myself have prayed. If you want to learn more about how God loves you, you absolutely must read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 casey | 4/22/2013

    " I thought this book was pretty good. The story of survival was really good. I have a hard time with "preaching" though. I have my beliefs and I think others should have the option to choose theirs and not need to be questioned at first meeting. Not a bad book though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toni Smith | 2/16/2013

    " Very good read, it really helped me with my fear of death. "

    " This book made a big impression on me, and really helped take my faith to the next level. If He did it for Dale, why wouldn't He do it for me? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randi S | 6/11/2012

    " I think that this book shows a true account of a man's visit to heaven upon surviving a plane accident. I love the wisdom his grandfather bestows about whether to make his account known or to quietly live it out in his day-to-day life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 2/24/2012

    " This is a quick read! It's one where you don't want to set it down. Captain Dale Black's survival of a horrific plane crash, his recovery, but most importantly his trip to heaven! I loved his Biblical description of heaven. It's a must read! "

    " Some parts of this book were interesting, but overall it was a struggle to finish. Compelling subject, but just too boring. "

    " 19 year old Dale Black is the only survivor of a plane crash.
    The story is fast paced...good beginning, good end. The middle is full of lots of praying. If your into God, this is a good book. If not, then it makes you think a little bit. "
