What happens when you die?

How does one transcend mankind to heavenly being, the known to the eternal mystery? One spring day in 1971, Calvin Cassady, a southwest Missouri teenager, was a victim in an unexplained automobile accident on a curvy Ozark mountain roadway. The impact caused the car that Calvin was a passenger in to burst into flames, plunging him into a clouded existence that included a walk through the valley of the shadow of death, leaving him on the threshold of eternal life. Eternity surrounded him and filled him with an absolute certainty of heaven. Standing before the Master and all his creation Calvin became troubled with the vision of his judgment and the life that he brought with him. Consumed with feelings of emptiness, he needed fulfillment.

Bridging the Gap is the story of that miraculous event and the life of fulfillment that followed. Experience that fulfillment through Calvin's spouse, his children, his students, his friends, and through the lives of total strangers as they became players in the great spiritual adventures of his life. Observe as the Holy Spirit guides Calvin through natural disasters and serious health issues, and feel the love as he takes into the mission field.

Bridging the Gap celebrates the ordinary and illustrates the extraordinary results that occur during a lifetime lived for Christ. While you continue your spiritual journey, remember that faith, hope, and love conquer all. May your journey be fruitful, and may God's peace be with you.

"I received this book as a giveaway, which I appreciate very much. It was something that I was interested in for a few different reasons. The first reason being that I was curious to see if the authors heavenly experience was like that of others I know who have had a similar experience. It was. The other reason I was curious about this story, I've been a Missourian all of my life and I was curious. Turns out this tragic accident took place not far from where I live.

I enjoyed the book overall. It was a good break from my normal reads and gave me something new to ponder. Some happy, some sad, but it was well balanced. The beginning was a little graphic and gory for me, but that didn't last long. I also have a pretty weak stomach these days. If you are squeamish, the beginning can be a little hard to get through. I have a very vivid indignation and can see everything as clearly as if I were standing in the hospital room myself. But the overall story was worth the read. I would recommend this one.."
