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.

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
