Todd and Dave Gillert from Flint, MI will talk about their book A Second Chance from Heaven: A Near Death Experience Restores Purpose for a Father and Son.

Copies of the book will be available at the Library.

On the eve of the tenth anniversary of his oldest son's death, doctors told Todd Gillert that his autistic son, David, was not expected to live because a rare condition caused his skin to separate from his body. As he helplessly watched a helicopter carry his son into the cold night sky, Todd feared he would never see him alive again.

In the quiet place between life and death (a special place between heaven and earth), David experienced amazing beauty in a glorious garden. In this place, his earthly disability completely vanished. Todd shares the amazing stories of angelic encounters David had in a realm where pain and suffering are replaced by beauty and contentment.

David experienced a personal epiphany and saw the wonders of what awaits the occupants of heaven. His life was forever changed as his soul connected with the reality of being God's beloved child. God provided a second chance from heaven as He used this very unexpected event to redeem the lives of both a father and a son.

"A Second Chance from Heaven is fascinating, well written, and very moving. Scriptures and theology are interwoven in and through the story to answer the questions of life." --Douglas Schmidt, Senior Pastor, Woodside Bible Church
