Ok. A bestselling book gets published by a pastor called "90 Minutes in Heaven" and makes millions.
Then a little while later some unknown guy says he has a vision of hell and writes a book entitled "23 Minutes in Hell" and sells it and makes millions.
He didn't have a documented near death experience. He just says that one night Jesus came and "took him into hell." He has no way of verifying his story. No proof at all. Just his word.
His story is poorly written, and has no new or unique information, just the basic "its fire and it's awful" teachings that people all have heard again and again, but yet Christians flock to his book like sheep, and buy multiple copies to give their friends. This guy says he wants to save people from hell, but he sells his books, doesn't give a single one of them away, sets up a "ministry" website with nothing on it but and reviews of the book that say its great and a link to buy the book. Then he goes on speaking tours and gets paid to talk about his book, and sells copies of the book to more and more people.
All the while there is not one shred of proof or evidence that anything happened to him at all.
I think Weise is laughing all the way to the bank.
I read this book to see what all the fuss was about. Wrong thing to do. The set up was just wrong. Where is the background of this man to show what kind of person he was before he spent his "23 Minutes In Hell". He says he was a Christian which I don't doubt but I would have loved to read more about him and his wife before this happen.It jumps around way to much for me. A story should have a beginning, middle and end. Could not wait for this book to end. I wanted so badly for this to all make sense but I just could not.
Very thought provoking. Really makes you consider where you and your love ones could spend eternity.
Very graphic story, keeps your interest.
Bill Wiese saw the searing flames of hell, felt total isolation, and experienced the putrid and rotting stench, deafening screams of agony, terrorizing demons, and finally, the strong hand of God lifting him out of the pit.
