Heaven Trend In Books Is Now In Theaters
Hollywood is paying close attention to bestselling books about the afterlife, especially since last year’s film “Heaven is For Real” drew $100M at the box office.
In September, Don Piper’s best-selling true story 90 Minutes In Heaven (Revell, 2004) will hit theaters starring Kate Bosworth (“Superman”) and Hayden Christensen (“Star Wars”). The book, which has sold over 7 million copies, chronicles Piper’s death, his time in heaven, return to life, and painful recuperation. Accompanying the new film adaptation, 90 Minutes in Heaven will be available in a movie tie-in edition on Sept. 1 featuring a new preface by the author.
Miracles From Heaven (Hachette Books, 2015) by Christy Beam features the story of Annabel, a young girl suffering from a rare digestive disorder.
