The first time she went to Hell and years later she went to Heaven. Obviously she returned to her human body both times.
I am unsure how to review this book. My beliefs and what I have been taught are that when you are unsaved and die, that is the end. You have no chance of redemption after that and cannot go to Heaven. The author tells a very different story.
The God-glorifying and inspirational parts of the book are wonderful. The author has listed many things that are worthy of repeating. She stresses that we should always praise and thank God despite what our circumstances might be. God wants to heal us of all the addictions we suffer from and will help us receive freedom when we truly ask for His help. She reminds us of God’s everlasting love, patience, and kindness.
This book is a perplexing one for me. I found so much good in it, but I had so many questions on it. Honestly I am not equipped to answer them. Maybe only Jesus is. If you want to read this book I would suggest you do it prayerfully. A few things did not seem right to me in my soul, but this was not my experience. I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit but these are my own, honest words.
About the Book
Book: Climbing into Eternity
Author: Michele Pulford
Release Date: April 2018
“I died twice and came back to tell about it.”
Michele flirted with death for six years, trying to numb her pain following a sexual pervert’s attack. Attempting to protect herself, she allowed hatred of men to control her, and used mind control to manipulate others. Suffering with acute anorexia nervosa, she was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital at age twenty-three.
She woke up in hell, a place of eternal damnation, horror, torment, and fire. Rescued by the Savior whose soft, gentle voice she had rejected, Michele was given a new chance at life and turned wholeheartedly to the Lord.
When her body was completely paralyzed from an anaphylactic allergy attack as a young mother, she found life leaving her body once again. “This time,” she says, “I was ushered into the splendorous glory of Heaven—a place of almost indescribable light and love.”
Sent back to tell her story, Michele Pulford warns others of the horrors of the kingdom of darkness, and tells them of the glory of true abundant life in God’s kingdom of light.
This personal love story, as well as a story about death and eternal life, is both a warning and a promise, and ultimately an unforgettable account of the love of God that would not let a young woman go.

More from Michele
After a sexual pervert’s attack at ten years of age, I invited evil into my life. I became an embittered, hateful teenager consumed by acute anorexia with murderous hate towards men. This led me into an abusive marriage of two years which ended with a failed murder attempt. Due to my failure I landed up DOA at my local hospital from premeditated suicide. On dying, I was taken to the evil and fiery demon invested accusing, tormenting pit of hell. It was here where the miraculous Light and Life of Jesus ripped through and rescued me.
I began my new life with my best friend, the Holy Spirit. Miraculously I married my high school sweetheart. The miraculous continued when after being declared completely barren, God’s love and grace stepped in resulting with me giving birth to a son and a daughter. Our family joy was shadowed by my soul-destroying bulimic addiction which God’s grace eventually set me free from. The life-death challenges did not end there. I found myself in an intense battle with witchdoctors as well with the dangers of onset anaphylactic attacks. It was one of these attacks that found me dying once again, with my husband and doctor watching. This time I was taken to the gates of heaven and glory. This is my story of life and death, heaven and hell, blessing and cursing.

Sounds like a good book.
I don’t know enough about the Bible to really tackle a theological discussion like the one in this book!
I totally agree.
This sounds like quite an intense story. I would have to agree with your conclusions, though.
Looks like it tackles some tough subjects!
