    Join us for a discussion of Mary C. Neal's To Heaven and Back in the Activity Room.

    A limited number of book club reading copies will be available for checkout from the circulation desk about a month prior to the meeting.

    Is there life after death? Is God real? Is there sufficient reason to live by faith? Dr. Mary Neal’s walk with God has been both ordinary and extraordinary, brimming with the gift and privilege of being touched by God in visible and very tangible ways. She is a practicing orthopedic surgeon, a wife, and a mother who has experienced joy as well as great sorrow and death. She experienced life after death and, despite her scientific training, she believes the answer to each one of these questions is a definitive yes. She drowned on a South American river and went to Heaven. She conversed with angels. She returned to Earth, in part, to tell her story to others and help them find their way back to God. In this book , Dr. Neal shares the captivating details of her life in which she has experienced not just one miracle, but many. Her story is both compelling and thought provoking. Her experiences provide confirmation that miracles still occur, shows how God keeps His promises and why there is sufficient reason to live by faith. Dr. Neal’s message is fundamentally one of hope.
