During a hot summer evening Jim and his son biked home from a fishing trip when a car hit Jim, almost costing his life. Near death, Jim describes the black room. This book is not simply about the accident; it delves deeper into what it means to have a relationship with God. "It's not a matter of if we get hit from behind, it's a matter of when." All of us get 'hit' sooner or later. How do you handle the loss of control over your life? This short story is about you. If you're not a Christian, it will stir thinking about God.

...hit from behind... is a captivating story of how a seemingly innocent fishing trip turns into disaster.

This book is not simply about the accident; it delves deeper into what it means to have a relationship with God. "It's not a matter of if we get hit from behind, it's a matter of when." All of us get 'hit' sooner or later. How do you handle the loss of control over your life? This short story is about you. If you're not a Christian, it will stir thinking about God. If you are a Christian, it will stir thinking of the difference between giving your heart to Christ and giving your life to Him. Jim Heckel lives with his wife, Beth, in Loveland, Colorado. ... hit from behind... is his first book. He has a long list of published papers and articles on topics, his specialty which is leadership. He has a son, Nathan, and a daughter, Aimee. While recovering from a near-fatal car-versus-bicycle accident, his daughter encouraged him to "write, write, write." Heckel's rehab afforded him time to reflect, pray and listen to her encouragement. He put on paper what he was processing internally. Heckel is an outdoors person and spends his free time fly-fishing, backpacking and hiking - and he's back on the bicycle. He's an active member of his church, works for a high-tech corporation and plays the drums when he's happy. Heckel is passionate about humanitarian aid, serving as secretary for Think Humanity (www.thinkhumanity.org). His nickname is Frog. No one knows why, but he's OK with that.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Rebirth after a horrific accident  Jun 7, 2009
Jim Heckel's bike accident left his physical body severely injured, but his spirit was infused with love and trust by a visit from the Holy Spirit. This helped Jim immensely on his long road to recovery.

I found the insights in chapter 6, Lessons Learned, to be a good reminder of what's important in life. Jim says his accident was not "his" accident, but refers to it as "the" accident, because what happened to him impacted so many people. I thought that was a very astute observation. Another lesson is that life's challenges don't happen haphazardly, but only arrive when we are ready for them. So true.

This incredible journey of healing both body, mind and spirit reminds us all that we are all connected, and that love is the greatest healer of all.
 
Awesome Read and a big WOW  Dec 26, 2008
WOW.....
It was a captivating read. To hear Jim tell this story was amazing and to read what came from this experience is even more amazing. Jim did a good job of referencing scriptures and the personal notes from his family and friends had me wiping tears from my face. As Jim states several times throughout the book, it is not if, but when, we get him from behind, will we be prepared in our walk with Christ? Will you?
Jim, may God continue to bless you, your family and the Think Humanity Organization...Much Love Brother.
 
Very well written - easy to read and understand a near death experience  Dec 23, 2008
I just finished reading Jim Heckel's book, "Hit From Behind" concerning Jim's experience with the near death bicycle accident that had a lasting impact on his family and his life. Jim describes events leading up to the accident, his exprience and thoughts after the accident and how his relationship with God helped him and his family cope with the incident.

I would recommend this book. The book is very well written, easy to read in a few hours and a portion of the sales of the book will go to a nonprofit organization called "Think Humanity" to help ship malaria medication and mosquito nets to refugees in Africa.
 
Why read this book, ...hit from behind....?  Dec 19, 2008
On 3-Aug-07 I was riding my bike and was hit from behind by a car doing over 35MPH. It almost killed me. This accident rippled through my family and many close friends. During my rehab time, my daughter (a journalist by professsion) encouraged me to write down what was going through my mind. So I followed that suggestion and ended up learning a lot. In fact, it came to my mind that we all are 'hit from behind' if not by a car, by something bad that occurs in one's life. Like a divorce, a court case, losing a job, getting into some trouble, a health issue, an addiction or whatever. We all have or will experience some bad times. My experience taught me much about the way in which we deal with such problems. The process by which we navigate through such tough times can actually make us stronger and happier. This process involves Faith. Faith in something. My Faith is in God and you may have faith in something else. We all have some faith whether or not we wish to admit it. So by reading this book, it most certainly will challenge your faith, whatever that may be. It may help you deal with the problem that you now face. If this book helps just one person learn more about this "God thing," then it's met its objective. This book is really about you.
 
Captivating! Life changing!  Dec 12, 2008
A captivating true story, from the first page I was hooked. I couldn't stop. Hey, I'm not a book reader, either. But this one is different. Besides being written with a contemporary Christian perspective, you can tell it is written from the heart. And what I really like is, you can tell it has not been edited and rewritten by some publisher who wants to perfect every sentence, thereby losing the freshness and realness that comes from Jim's experience. Besides you are contributing to a great humanitarian cause,proceeds go to help eradicate malaria in Africa. Jim's story would make a great movie! Greg W.
