Appointments with Heaven: The True Story of a County Doctor’s Healing Encounters with the Hereafter

By: Dr. Reggie Anderson with Jennifer Schuchmann

Dr. Anderson pens a wonderful and intriguing story about his life.  The first part of the book provides readers with a glimpse into Dr. Anderson’s life.  He talks about his experiences with The Lord when he was a child.  He then shares how a family tragedy turned him away from The Lord.  After years of running from The Lord a dream changed his life.    

The second part of the book talks about the experiences he has had with several patients as they have passed from this life to the next life.  The stories are incredible.  All but one of Dr. Anderson’s stories provides details about what happens when a person goes to Heaven.  However, there is one story about a man who would not accept The Lord.  Dr. Anderson explains how when this man passed it was unlike the others he experienced.  There was definitely a difference and he did not want to see another patient got through that again. 

I enjoyed reading this book and my faith was further increased.  If you or anyone you know is going through a difficult time this book may be just what you need to be encouraged that something greater awaits those who accept The Lord.  It was also interesting to learn that Dr. Anderson and his wife Karen have been long-time friends with Steven Curtis and Mary Beth Chapman.  One of the stories included in this book is the passing of Maria, Steven Curtis & Mary Beth’s daughter.  Although Maria was not one Dr. Anderson’s patients, she was like family to him.  The Anderson and Chapman families officially became family in 2009 when Dr. Anderson’s daughter married the Chapman’s son.
