Flight to Heaven by Capt.Dale Black


From the Back Cover:
Imagine getting a glimpse of heaven, a preview of life in God's presence. Could life here ever be the same? Capt. Dale Black has flown as a commercial pilot all over the world, but one flight changed his life forever--an amazing journey to heaven and back. The only survivor of a horrific plane crash, Dale was hovering between life and death when he had a wondrous experience of heaven. What he saw, what he heard, and what he learned there continues to ripple through his life and touch others. Against all odds, Dale miraculously recovered from his injuries and learned to fly again. Now, with his life as a testament, he shares his inspiring story--offering hope and encouragement for those dealing with serious injuries or the loss of a loved one, and those looking for assurance about this life and the next. Experience a Life-Changing Vision of Heaven "Dale Black's near-death experience took my breath away. Flight to Heaven is a spiritually rich reflection on the enormous love God has for His children and the lengths to which He will go to bring them safely home." --Trudy Harris, author of Glimpses of Heaven

My Review:
This is an amazing true story. Dale Black was 19, a normal rebellious teenager. More than anything Dale loved to fly. He worked very hard to be able to afford lessons and got his pilot licenses. He went on a flight with two friends and at take off a horrible accident happened. Dale’s two friends were killed and he survived. Amazingly Dale didn’t have any internal injuries. While Dale was in a coma he visited Heaven.
Only two chapters are about his Heavenly visit, but they are precious. I love to read about those whom God has blessed with a Heavenly visit. Makes me want more than anything to go to my homeland.
Flight to Heaven tells of Dale before and after the accident. When he first came to I was amazed at his love of the people that he saw. It is the love of God. The book goes on to tell of Dale’s journey of faith and his learning of the Lord’s peace and comfort. As Capt. Dale finds out if we give our whole lives over to the Lord and put Him first, we will be more content and the Lord will answer our prayers.
You will find out all of the struggles and hardships Capt. Dale had to go through because of his accident. The many doctor appointments and surgeries.
Flight to Heaven is a very interesting, precious, joyful book. I highly recommend this. You will be amazed and full of peace after reading it.
