About the Book

It’s easy to take it all for granted and go through life feeling invincible—especially if you’ve spent your life successfully facing challenges, overcoming obstacles in the way, and working hard to improve yourself both mentally and physically. Yet for all of us, this feeling of invincibility is an illusion.

From Sudden Death to Paradise shares one man’s story of suddenly facing his mortality and coming to terms with what he experienced. After being exposed to toxic chemicals while in the military, and unknown to him, author T. S. Dismas developed an autoimmune disease that would kill him—one night, Dismas suffered sudden heart failure and died for ten minutes. Yet in that moment, he had a near-death experience and visited heaven, where he would learn a valuable lesson about himself, his life, his faith, and God.

No amount of suffering could take away his joy and peace, and after his experience, life was now sweet and truly a gift. With a new heart—both literally and spiritually—he was able to realize his previous life was not part of God’s plan, and that embracing God’s love is the only way to sustain happiness and find meaning in this life.

About the Author

T. S. Dismas began his adult life by joining the US Army Military Police Corps straight out of high school; he served his country all over the world and was disabled due to injuries sustained during service. He then went on to obtain a master’s degree in counseling psychology and started working as a psychotherapist with other combat veterans in the Department of Veterans Affairs. Dismas has also worked as a program director and clinical supervisor with criminal offenders, and after joining a private company working with recently released offenders, he suffered a major heart failure. This was just the beginning of what his life would be like for the next couple of years.
