    Posted: 17 September 2008 at 11:12am
We were talking about religion at work yesterday and I mentioned how I wasn't religious.  One of my co-workers happened to have this book called "23 Minutes In Hell" with her and she told me to read it.  I haven't finished it, but I found some videos online about it.

Basically this guy gets sent to hell for 23 minutes and he explains how horrible it was and what he experienced.  God then pulls him back out and tells him to share his story with everyone.

A search on google turns up all sorts of stuff on it.

Anyone heard of it before?  I think its pretty interesting despite me not being religious.

Despite my catholic upbringing, I'm not particularly 'religious' in the conventional sense in that I believe a person's relationship with God is a private thing...

anyway, I've never heard of this story- although it is rather interesting to think about. the concept of infinite heaven and hell fascinated me ever since I was a little kid.

I'll never forget the night (must have been 5 or 6) I scared myself to tears trying to wrap my mind around the concepts of 'forever' and 'heaven and hell'

I'm reading 1984.

Good stuff.

If you're into that sort of thing, for poly sci we had to read
"Finding George Orwell In Burma", by Emma Larkin.
It's a great insight into just how bad things are
over there.  I suggest it

You guys know that 23 minutes in hell is a "real experience" told by the guy it "happened to" right?

I bet I could make a killing if I wrote a book detailing how god spoke to me and turned me from my wicked secular ways.

Good thing too. You were talking like this was serious and not from a complete nutcase. (or...genius)

I'm reading Hatchet~Spectre (2nd book) by Knox Gordon, not that it has anything to do with the book you're reading. It's about Vietnam.

Wait - the author is claiming this actually happened to him?

I thought it was a novel...

Cool concept for a novel - maybe starring Brendan Frazer for the movie - but now it just dropped into Bigfoot land...
