From the Back Cover
"The cold voice of the anesthesiologist recited the typical ‘Count backward from 10’ routine. And darkness closed around me before I got to 7. That’s when I found out what it’s like to die—and to come back from the dead."
It was a beautiful winter’s day, showing no signs of what was to come. Steve Sjogren, pastor of one of America’s fastest growing churches, went into the hospital for routine gall bladder surgery and died—twice. What began as a tragic medical accident led to Steve’s encounter with death, an experience of unimaginable peace and some surprises, with comforting words from God, a meeting with an angel, and seeing those who had died before him.
In The Day I Died, you will read Steve Sjogren’s unforgettable story and catch a glimpse of the hereafter. Discover how he learned a myriad of lessons about hearing God’s voice in times of crisis, how he came to trust God in a new way during the recovery process and how his life has changed as a result of this experience. If you, or someone you know, are fearful of dying, curious about heaven or simply desiring to live life to its fullest, this encouraging book could change how you view life and death.
