Movie Review: 90 Minutes in Heaven
If you don’t know Rev. Piper’s story, he was in a terrible car accident in 1989. He died for 90 minutes. However, a fellow minister in the area prayed over him and he returned to life. The following year was a difficult time of adjustment, healing and readjustment.
His wife, Eva, his church family and dear friends kept encouraging him and pushing him in those moments when he wanted to give up and die.
The movie shares his story and the memories he has of going to heaven during the time he’d died.
This is a great storytelling of his story. However, there are many parts of the movie that are difficult to watch. Seeing the struggles Rev. Piper and his family endured are painful to watch and one can imagine how much more painful it was for him to live through this experience.
However, out of the ashes God brought about a wonderful testimony and ministry for Rev. Piper.
