Dying To Meet Jesus Book Review

About Dying To Meet Jesus, How Encountering Heaven Changed My Life…

We all have struggles and most Christians have experienced times where it seemed as if they couldn’t reach God. Randy Kay’s challenge went to a place that for most people there is no return; he died! Death usually means the end of choosing God or the world, but it was through death that he met Jesus and was restored to a life of joy that he had never thought possible. 

As a devout agnostic at that point in his life, this was a monumental turn around. He no longer felt a dark emptiness from within as his life was transformed with God’s peace.  Kay’s Near Death Experience changed his life and filled him with greater purpose to share God’s presence through riveting stories that prove God is there for us always, even in our most difficult times.

Special Features

Although Randy Kay suffered through a Near Death Experience, he doesn’t emphasize his suffering, but instead he engages his readers with the magnificence of God and what our trust in Him will accomplish through Jesus Christ.  

The sincerity of heart in which Randy shares his Near Death Experience gives a deeper awe and reverence of God’s love and the compassion of Jesus Christ.  He clearly demonstrates that God’s love is not the same as “human love.”

Dying To Meet Jesus is an amazing journey into the peace of Jesus Christ that goes beyond our understanding and captivates the heart to trust God in everything.

Book Review By Margaret Lukasik

Dying To Meet Jesus, How Encountering Heaven Changed My Life by Randy Kay is a unique and powerful story about the author’s Near Death Experience that brought him into the presence of Jesus.  While in the emergency room his doctor found 5 blood clots, some of which had caused full occlusion of his pulmonary artery. Randy Kay had died! This isn’t a condition most people would choose, yet as Randy relates his time with Jesus, it’s easy to understand why he had no desire to return to his life on earth. The light of Jesus Christ had indelibly pierced Randy’s heart and soul with infinite joy and peace. Randy clung to Jesus, but it wasn’t his time to die.

Because Randy had been an agnostic for most of his adult life makes his story even more profound.  Theoretically he would no longer face his illness or any future difficulties alone because Jesus was now at the helm of his life with healing and victory.  The question is, would his newly found peace and joy last? 

Surely one can say that it was easy for him to be close with God, after all, he met Jesus! He was fact to face with Him. While meeting Jesus must have a lasting impact upon one’s life, daily living can wear down a person’s resolve to follow Jesus and keep in step with the Holy Spirit. But this wasn’t the case with Randy.  He shares how we cannot fully relate to God without brokenness or a loss of self to follow Christ. Clearly referenced in his story is his determination to have and keep an intimate relationship with God and to help others do the same. He isn’t telling his story to share his experience without a purpose.  He is using it to bring about the fulfillment of Jesus Christ in every believer and to use his testimony to win unbelievers to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and life eternal with God.

Dying To Meet Jesus shares with Christians how to get on the path with God to see Him as a loving Father, to live one’s salvation, to understand why we should pray and why we must allow the Holy Spirit to pray through us, and to discover and develop life purpose by waiting upon God.  He also demonstrates how to overcome the negative memories that keep us from living God’s best and much more. Randy breaks down this information in detail to bring healing and recovery. 

Randy’s credibility for teaching and helping others make positive changes in their lives spans many years with his leadership experience as the CEO of two companies, PACEsetters, a human development firm, and TenorCorp, a strategic development firm.  He reaches out to people from all walks of life through articles, books, television appearances and radio programming. Although I’ve never met him, I can feel his gracious and loving character through his writing that says, I care about you and love you. It’s a warm feeling because I know Randy’s Words are backed with Christ’s love. Dying to meet Jesus is an extraordinary book that takes one on a journey of love, healing and purpose.
