Dr. Scot Hodkiewicz had followed his plan step by step and was happily living the American Dream—the perfect family, a lucrative job, and a secure, comfortable lifestyle.

But as Scot drove with his wife, three young children, and two dogs down a Wisconsin highway, he discovered that God had other plans for his life. A drunk driver hit Scot's car head on, nearly killing Scot and his wife. Left with a mangled body and a broken spirit, Scot entered a downward spiral of pain, addiction, and potential tragedy.

Scot initially was filled with anger, hatred, and self-pity before he started to see the everyday angels around him and hear God's voice directing him at each trial. Scot learned the power of forgiveness and humility and saw that his struggles were actually his path to salvation. In his personal Hell, Scot found that Heaven doesn't exist only after death but can be found here on Earth by listening to God.

Scot invites readers to share in his miraculous journey so that they, too, will be able to turn their eyes, ears, and hearts to God and confidently say, "Not my will, but yours."

With questions for study and reflection, Going through Hell to Get to Heaven is an ideal companion for Christians seeking to walk more closely with God.
