Reality is often harsh and these realities can drastically affect a person’s disposition and attitude in life. There are also many trials that would test one’s strength, determination, and faith. In his new book I Want To Go To Heaven…But Not Yet author Joe Wise reveals his life, his near-death experiences, and how he survived the ordeals to live a more meaningful life.

A frank and honest account, I Want To Go To Heaven…But Not Yet looks into the good and evil realities of life and how, by faith, anyone can turn evil into something very good and powerful. Depicting the ups and downs of life and the good and bad things people face as they go through life, this book tells of the author’s story of survival—of how he survived seven near-death experiences where in one of those experiences, he had an “out of body” experience. Here, Wise shares about his long fight and struggle against alcoholism and vividly describes his awful life experiences being an alcoholic and a Christian Pastor. He shows how his alcoholism affects innocent people, including the church members where he is serving. More than that, Wise gives emphasis on how he finds the road to recovery and lives a sober life.

Filled with realities, truth and life-changing revelations, I Want To Go To Heaven…But Not Yet can make the readers laugh or cry and it will inspire them to embrace change and empower themselves to be able to live a more positive and meaningful life.
