An abused seven-year-old boy is caught up in the CPS system and shuffled from family
to family, until he is finally adopted by a loving veterinarian and his wife. Barely surviving
his childhood trauma, the boy is caught outside in the middle of a terrible thunderstorm,
and young Walter Meyer is suddenly struck by a bolt of lightning and pays a tragic price
– he suffers cardiac arrest.
While he is unconscious, he has an out-of-body experience and encounters spiritual
beings (he calls them angels) and experiences the loving presence that some call the
Holy Spirit. Walter is given the gift of life and a special message. Miraculously, he is
brought back to life and survives solely due to his parent's performing CPR and
paramedic's efforts. When he awakens back in his own body, his experience did not feel
like a dream or a hallucination, but was "more real than real life." He doesn't tell many
people what exactly happened to him when he died, but when he does, they don't
believe it…so he only shares his story with those he trusts.
His near death experience leaves him profoundly changed and he is blessed with
incredible new abilities. He's become a better version of himself, however, he has
trouble fitting back into everyday life. As he grows into manhood, his quest to fulfill
God's message takes him from the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, to the
lush serenity of Duke University, to his wildest adventure near Mount Kilimanjaro in
Africa, finally to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.
Driven by his new-found relationship with God, Meyer is on a singular-focused mission
that enables him to overcome evil with good. He becomes a man of great wealth, finds
his true love, and saves enumerable lives…with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to save
the life of a future president.
