Life After Heaven

How My Time in Heaven Can Transform Your Life on Earth

Steven R. Musick & Paul J. Pastor

About Life After Heaven

After a deadly medical mistake sent a navy sailor to the presence of Jesus, he returned from his near-death experience with new eyes to see the kingdom of heaven in this life. Now he wants to help you experience heaven on earth today.

For years Steve Musick kept his amazing story to himself, afraid no one would believe or understand it. A major allergic reaction had stopped his heart, hurling him into a five-week coma and a powerful experience of heaven. After returning to life, he couldn’t forget the memory of that vibrant place—and, most of all, the loving words and touch of Jesus.
 
But that was only the beginning. An amazing series of miracles, dreams, and other supernatural events had been set in motion, showing Steve that heaven was close, even in this life. God was calling him to discover echoes of heaven in the here and now—echoes that can happen at any moment, to anyone—that bring overwhelming joy.
 
At last Steve is ready to tell the story of his journey of a lifetime—two lifetimes. In it you’ll learn the secret of bringing heaven to earth in your everyday world, and how to nurture a relationship with God so real and intimate that you’ll feel his nearness as strongly as Steven did.
 
Experience one man’s incredible vision of heaven—and learn how you can live in God’s presence and power today. 

Praise

“When my wife and I first met Steve Musick, we had a quiet hunch that this man had something in his life that put him in a rare category. We could not figure it out until he shared all of his story with us. He is a man of unusual depth, care, honesty, and relational brilliance—qualities that I know come from what you will read about here. Having been invited to be his whole-life mentor, I trust his story in every detail. He relives his time with Jesus daily and shares it through every encounter he has with others. One caution: prepare for your own life to experience some welcome, needed change and growth as you encounter Jesus in these pages of deep truth and life-giving love.”
—Wes Roberts, founder/master mentor, Leadership Design Group

“My dear friend Steve Musick is not an angel, but he is an ambassador sent back to us from ‘Our Father which art in heaven’ to show-and-tell us what we’ve been missing here ‘in earth, as it is in heaven.’ Reading this book will give you a window to look through and a map to follow so you can experience your own moments in life when heaven touches earth.”
—Dennis Turner, founder and lead pastor of Christ Church, Wichita, Kansas

“As I read Life After Heaven, I happened to be mourning the loss of my dear father-in-law, Cowboy Ken, who joined his Savior in the coming world, a world described in gorgeous detail by Steven Musick. I found deep comfort in Steven’s eyewitness account as I imagined my loved ones experiencing the rich, saturated sensations and fathomless love and peace in heaven. But this book goes beyond just describing heaven. It encourages, energizes, and brings zest, power, and hope to us in the here and now. I find myself watching and waiting for ‘bubbles of heaven,’ the ‘beautiful closeness of the kingdom of heaven,’ to break through and change everything. This is a book of radical comfort and outrageous hope.”
—Lorilee Craker, New York Times, CBA, and ECPA best-selling author of My Journey to Heaven with Marv Besteman and Anne of Green Gables, My Daughter, and Me

“People like Steven Musick telling of visits to heaven always raise my Missouri-bred skepticism. But I remember Paul’s visit recounted in 2 Corinthians 12:1–9 or John’s visit in the Revelation and look to the results of the story. Musick’s is to make God’s presence all the more real here on earth. He tells powerful stories, ‘bubbles of heaven,’ times when God’s love meets earth’s needs. There is much wisdom in the story: ‘Poverty in God’s kingdom…is tightly holding on to what you’re supposed to give away.’ The blandness of worldly living is overcome by the personal presence of God who is Emmanuel, promising ‘Lo, I will be with you always.’ Ponder prayerfully with Bible and heart open.”
—Gerry Breshears, professor of systematic theology, Western Seminary, Portland

“I am fascinated with the stories of those who have experienced heaven, but I’m often left feeling disappointed after reading books of others’ experiences of heaven. Life After Heaven certainly did not disappoint! Steven R. Musick’s book left me feeling satisfied and renewed. I can truly say it’s the very best book I’ve read on this topic, and I’ve read quite a few!”
—Lindsay Andrews, Blogging for Books reviewer

“I am personally more interested in life before death than life after, but Steve has done a marvelous job bridging the two. I found this book relevant and helpful.”
—William Paul Young, author of The Shack

“Scrap what you know about to-heaven-and-back stories. At least if the ones you know are silly and saccharine. Steven’s account of his time in ‘That Place’ is raw, credible, and profound. Most important, it will inspire you to draw closer to God—and to fill earth with heaven’s light.”
—Drew Dyck, senior editor of CTPastors.com and author of Yawning at Tigers

True Story of a Man’s
Remarkable Encounter with Jesus and
How It Turned His Life Upside Down
 
Author Now Helps Others Experience the Fullness of
God’s Kingdom on Earth
 
While a young man in the Navy, Steven Musick experienced a major allergic reaction to an experimental vaccination for the swine flu. As a result, his heart stopped and he ended up in a five-week coma. He found himself face to face with the risen Christ in heaven. What happened there forever changed him and his relationships with his entire family.
 
“I began to see my life from the perspective of heaven,” he writes in Life After Heaven: How My Time in Heaven Can Transform Your Life on Earth (WaterBrook, 3/7/17). After this experience, Musick couldn’t forget the memory of that vibrant place—and, most of all, the loving words and touch of Jesus.
 
When he came out of the coma, he had a severely debilitating lung disorder. However, he never once doubted the reality of what he experienced with Jesus. In fact, he became depressed since he so longed to be fully in God’s presence again and be free of the emotional and physical pain he was experiencing. 
 
Over time, his life purpose gradually became clear: to declare and demonstrate—through love and compassion like Jesus did—how the kingdom of heaven is closer than we think.     
 
Life After Heaven is a page-turner filled with other miraculous, faith-building encounters with God, including how Musick’s lungs were completely healed 10 years after the injury. His writing flows from his contagious, authentic faith and he helps readers discover ways they can nurture a real and intimate relationship with God.
 
Musick’s amazing story will encourage people to live with the closeness of God’s presence and will bring comfort to those who need to know that God is sovereign.

I loved this book. I typically avoid "life after death" books, but this book filled me with comfort and wonder. I know I'll be reaching for it whenever I am having a bad day, or just need a little reminder of God's love. Even if you find yourself apprehensive about his accounts, I'm sure you will still find this book enjoyable.

                    Steven R. Musick was a typical young person with plans for his future, very much like any young adult when he had a tragic mishap.  He became comatose for five weeks after suffering from an allergic reaction from a vaccine.  It also caused his heart to stop.  During this period of time God grants Musick a peek into Heaven.  It's profound beauty is hard for him to put into words but Steven is certain about one thing...he...
