Author Of 23 Minutes In Hell Speaks At Word Of Life Church

Thursday, September 4, 2008

In November of 1998, Bill Wiese had an out-of-body experience that he believes fell under the classification of a vision, as described in 2 Corinthians 12:2.

Mr. Wiese believes he spent a total of 23 minutes in hell where he saw the searing flames, felt the isolation, smelled the putrid, rotting stench, listened to deafening screams of agony and observed the terrorizing demons. Finally, the hand of God lifted him out of the pit. He was told: "Tell them I am coming very, very soon.”

Mr. Wiese returned from the vision with the details etched in his memory. Since his life-changing ordeal, he has spent the last 10 years speaking about his experience and studying the Scriptures to find answers.

In 2004, Mr. Wiese was approached by a publisher to write a book about his experience, and in 2006, "23 Minutes In Hell" was published by Charisma House out of Lake Mary, Fl. The book has sold more than half a million copies.

Mr. Wiese will be speaking about his vision and his studies at Word of Life Church, 5755 Cassandra Smith Road, in Hixson on Saturday, Sept. 20, at 7 p.m. and Sunday during morning services at 10 a.m. His book signing at Hixson's Books-A-Million will be that same Saturday from 1-4 p.m.

Mr. Wiese is a minister who presents his testimony in a humble yet powerful fashion that encourages all to accept the salvation available through the Lord Jesus Christ, organizers said. His testimony is balanced and rests solidly on the Word of God, revealing the perils of hell and the consequence of forsaking the redemption provided by the Lord Jesus Christ.

Mr. Wiese and his wife Annette began traveling in full-time ministry in 2007. For more information, call Word of Life Church at 843-2999.
