The message of Don Piper's best-selling book about being brought back to life after dying and going to heaven has been adapted for a seven-week DVD Bible study series just released by Worthy Resources, part of Worthy Media.

90Minutes_DVDAt the heart of 90 Minutes in Heaven: Seeing Life's Troubles in a Whole New Light (978-1-936-03400-0) are seven 20-minute presentations featuring Piper, whose Revell (Baker Publishing Group) book has sold more than 3.5 million copies and been on best-seller charts for nearly three years.

"With so many people having bought the book, we believe that there is a deep and growing interest in all things related to heaven and the life hereafter—among both Christians and seekers," said Byron Williamson, president & CEO of Worthy Media.

"The turmoil that comes from economic convulsions, medical crises, terrorist threats, natural disasters, political unrest and burdens from grief are there to remind us that this earth is not our home," he added.

An ordained pastor who now travels widely to share the testimony of his 1989 auto accident and the lessons he has learned, Piper was filmed for the series at a church in Franklin, Tenn., earlier this year.

The $199.99 curriculum package includes four discs with the video presentations, a member's workbook, leader's guide and audio recordings for use in preparation by group leaders. In addition, an interactive DVD includes video trailers, posters, bulletin inserts and other promotional material. Additional member's workbooks are $12.99 each.
