“I bring you greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ from Ghana, West Africa! I am a the founder of Christ to the Nations Outreach Ministry. I would like to thank you very much for the impact your are making in the Kingdom business. I read your books One Thing You Can’t Do in Heaven and One Heartbeat Away: Your Journey Into Eternity. These have really built my faith and have equipped me in my area of calling to evangelize the world for Christ. I was really blessed by the argument you shared in your book about the existence of God and evolution. I thank you so much for writing these books. I can’t tell how much it has transformed my life. God bless your ministry and your labor in the Lord.”
— Sylvester S.
“A good friend sent me your book One Heartbeat Away, and it was pivotal in leading me closer to Christ! I have always been a follower of Christ, but like so many so-called Christians, I allowed myself to be on the Throne all too often, failing to fully submit myself to the Lord’s true calling for my life. Your book drove truth into my soul. I give out your book to all of my doctoral students and friends.”
“This book has turned my life around.”
— John L.
“One Heartbeat Away is truly one of the most complete, definitive books for the gospel I’ve ever gotten my hands on. I LOVE sending it out because — next to the Bible — it is the most effective book I send!!”
— Jo Anna W.
“Just wanted to let you know your book One Heartbeat Away was one of the linchpins in me going from atheism to being born again. I found your book when I was facing life in prison for a 30-man street fight when I was just 18 years old. It was finally logic and answers to the tough questions that plagued me for so long that helped. I spent a year of my life behind bars, and never did I feel so free after experiencing Jesus. I am now free from jail and have had the opportunity to share my testimony with over 150 K high school kids all over the nation. It is truly a shame that publications like One Heartbeat Away aren’t more mainstream. The world needs this kind of material. Thank you for being obedient to God’s voice.”
— Dr. Pain
“I have just finished your book One Heartbeat Away and wanted to share my experience. I came across your book at our Senior Citizen Center, where we check out books at no charge. We share any books we have that we want to donate. I couldn’t put your book down, I couldn’t read it fast enough! It will be no surprise to you to learn I have already ordered your other book, One Thing You Can’t Do in Heaven. I anticipate it arriving this week so I can get started on it.
— Janice B.
I’m going through One Heartbeat Away with my friend, chapter by chapter, week by week. We are up to Chapter 9. She doesn’t believe, but she says she is learning a lot and getting a clearer picture of things, even though she doesn’t believe it. We have a very pleasant time together, and she keeps coming and wanting to discuss it. I appreciate your step by step approach. The chapter on repentance was very clear. I’m praying for boldness to engage with others, too.”
Hi…my name is Mike….I was recently incarcerated in Harrisburg, PA….I had the opportunity to be blessed by reading many of your books….you are gifted in a way with your writing skills because once I opened any of your books, I couldn’t put them down, and it’s not easy to keep my attention….I want you to know that One Thing You Can’t Do in Heaven was the first book of yours that I read, and it has greatly inspired me to spread the Word. I hope to meet you someday….I have family in Georgia, and I think, if I recall correctly, that is where you are from…..keep up the great work you are doing, and just know that you have reached 1 more person’s soul. GOD BLESS!
A few days ago I gave my piano tuner guy your One Heartbeat Away book. He said he was very interested in the the proving evolution is false but didn’t want to read anything about salvation. I told him to take the book and read as much of the book as he would like, and it was okay with me if he didn’t read the whole thing. So, he took the book. A couple days later, I called him back, and he said to me, “I am almost done with the whole entire book. I love it!! It’s great!! Very well written.” Your books are changing peoples lives and eternities. Thank you!
Mark! I ordered two boxes of your books a few months back. I read One Heartbeat Away, The Watchmen, and Ten Questions for The King. Life changers! I have to say that these three books helped to turn me on to the path of obedience to God in sharing my faith. The Spirit really worked on my heart and mind through these books. I just wanted to stop and thank you for your time and effort in writing these books. The Lord is leading me to New York City; I can’t wait to stomp those streets and tell people about the only Way, the Truth, the Life! What a calling. Endless possibilities to share. What a gift!”
— Reid A.
“My friend read the One Heartbeat Away you sent to me. She just surrendered her life to the Lord! She said she loved your book and how nicely you put together the thoughts and how it progresses from one subject to another. Thank you!”
— Ping S.
“Your books are powerful. They stir my passion for the lost. You are indeed touching lives for Christ. I am writing from Ghana.”
— Joseph B.
“Absolutely awesome book brother – the men at Limestone Correctional Facility have so many positive comments… Thanks again, and God bless for writing such a inspiring and thought-provoking book!!”
John wrote to a friend who passed this along: “That’s a great book by Mark Cahill – One Heartbeat Away. That book is so well structured. Just perfect for all those of other faiths or for those who have none.”
“I’ve read of your books. Honestly, I can say I was impacted. In my 30 years, I had never been in contact with a Bible, let alone understood it. I believe that if it wasn’t for your book, I probably wouldn’t have understood it. Your book, One Heartbeat Away, opened my eyes to believe more in God and less in science. I’ve always been more of “facts and proof,” but your book opened my heart to God. Thank you! God bless!”
“Well, I am on page 42 of this book and so far, I’m digging the science. I love it. He is totally disproving theories left and right. Slam!! Looking forward to where this book is going. Very well thought out and well put. Hard to disclaim. I need this book. Exactly what I needed.”

“Just listened to the whole audio book of One Heartbeat Away….What a blessing and encouragement….Listening again!
“We were able to deliver 900 copies of One Heartbeat Away and 850 copies of One Thing You Can’t Do in Heaven to over 900 pastors in the Coban region. These pastors are from many different denominations, but all are committed to read through the books and begin using them for evangelism training and outreach. God is using this material . . . to win the lost and disciple believers.”
“When some friends and I got your book One Thing You Can’t Do In Heaven, my witnessing life changed overnight!!! It went from 5% to 75% just like that! And that is only because I can’t read well. Reading is hard work for me. It does not come natural. I made it partway through your book and hit the streets witnessing. Your book, and prayer, is the num
ber one thing that took me from a lock jaw, fearful witness to a bold, fearless witness!
Thank you so much for making audio books!!!! In two days, I have listened to all of One Thing You Can’t Do In Heaven and most of One Heart Beat Away!!! I love it!!!! The content and the way you read!!!! So faith building!! The audio books alone, for me, have taken my passion for fulfilling Mark 16:15 from 75% to 99%.
I am a carpenter by trade, but when I have half a chance, I go find people to share the good news with!”
“My sister read this book in jail and has been born again. I would like to know what it is that changed her life so much.”
“If you remember, I met you today morning at Kensington MARTA station . . . the book you gave me (One Heartbeat Away), is really amazing. I can’t stop reading that. Thank you.”
This church in Nicaragua loved receiving One Heartbeat Away in their native language! Both One Heartbeat Away and One Thing You Can’t Do in Heaven are available in Spanish, which is good to give to Spanish speaking people in our nation as well.
“My name is Jesse and I live in Durban – South Africa. I am 56 yrs old and was born into a Christian family…so I practically grew up in church. I am of Indian descent…born in South Africa. I am an avid reader and have over the years read many thousands of books (both spiritual and otherwise) but have never read one as informative, encouraging, and challenging (apart from the Bible) as yours. It has changed my perspective of the Christian approach to evangelism. I intend to buy many copies of this book and give it to everyone I know (and don’t know) so that they too can be challenged when confronted with the truth! I thank God for you and I hope that when you plan your travels, you would have my country in mind. We need someone like you to minister and teach us. I would gladly host you should you ever visit our shores!”
“I have been looking for a book to share with my family and friends who are unbelievers and finally have found it!”
“About this time a year ago my ex-husband came from Dallas to join a birthday celebration with our three grown children and their kids in Salt Lake City. I gave Kerry One Heartbeat Away with the promise that he would read it. I thought the fact that you played basketball at Auburn, and hung out with Charles Barkley, would entice him since he’d had a great four-year basketball career at the University of Kansas. I knew with all the stories that included athletes, he’d enjoy the read. But best of all, I wanted him to give his relationship with God a fresh look. Unbeknownst to us all, he had been diagnosed with a tumor on his lung. I believe he was seeking answers to the questions we all ask when facing death…”What is next? Is there a Heaven or Hell?” And I think, through your book, God graciously led him to the right answer…faith in Jesus for his eternal salvation.
“You see, on Oct 1st Kerry had a stroke while driving to his last chemotherapy appointment. He sustained too many injuries to survive the accident and passed into eternity on Oct 14th. But he was aware of his whole family gathered around him. He heard them all praying for him. The surgery team even texted to the family four times during his six hours of surgery that they were indeed praying and wanted the family to keep up their prayers.
“The way God has used your book didn’t stop with him. After he died, my daughter, Kelly, was terribly distraught, fearful that her dad might not be in Heaven…until the stories began to surface. She found out aboutthe impact One Heartbeat Away had had on him. He had kept his promise to read the book and insisted that his Christian sisters-in-law also read it so he could discuss it with them. They told him the book was absolutely correct. So I gave Kelly your book to read itthrough her father’s eyes, and her heart was opened to the Truth, as well. Then I sent copies to all of Kerry’s other five children and five brothers and sisters encouraging them to also read your book through Kerry’s eyes…God knew the timing and orchestrated everything so that not only Kerry, but his whole family would know Jesus and His offer of eternal salvation. How lovingly God has worked here. Thank you, Mark, for writing this amazing book that explains the gospel so clearly. My heart is so full. I gratefully keep you and your ministry in my prayers!”

“I have taken to your great book which is One Heartbeat Away your journey into eternity. What a great book it is! It is a great pearl for me. I have studied it very carefully. I have known many and many great deeper truths from that book I have never seen from such kind of a book in my life. I pray for you and praise and thank the Lord gave to you a great burden of heart about the lost human race.”
—P.J. S., India
“Yesterday, I received a phone call from one of my friends who is working as manager in central government, his name is Mr. Chundren. He is residing 10 miles from our church. He invited me to his house for an important talk. I went to his house, and as we were talking he was crying with so much tears. I said why brother you crying, what happened? He said I was so foolish so far in my life without knowing the true God and eternal life. He told me, ‘you gave me a book called, One Heartbeat Away, Your Journey into Eternity.’ He said ‘That book has opened my eyes to know the truth about God and eternity. I want to learn deep in God’s Word and to became child of God to inherit the kingdom of God.’ Mr. Chundren requested me to have Bible study every week in his house. We greatly accepted to have Bible study in his house, and also I gave him one full Bible, and he gave the same book to other friends who are working with him in the office. Because of him, the whole family got saved, and he is trying to share about eternity to his friend also in office and relatives. He said that, so many years I went to so many holy temples, and did all welfare to the poor in order to get place in heaven, but after reading this book, I came to know that all these things will not take a person to heaven. We give all the glory and honor unto God, we are so happy to see the work of God through the wonderful literature evangelism.”
“Here’s a short story on the impact of Mark’s book in my life. I have a friend, his name is Jeff. One day, he said something that stuck strongly in my mind and still sticks. Paraphrasing it, he said, ‘I don’t want by the time I die, all I believed is false.’ It does make sense since it is not a matter of what I want to believe but whether what I believe is true. And Jeff is the one who recommends Mark’s book to our church, The Mission. Every Sunday, we have free books to give away in our church and one of them that’s always in stock is One Heartbeat Away. I also managed to recommend the book to my company via our company’s newsletter.”
“Have to say, I just finished reading your second book, and was absol…utely astounded and amazed. Anyone, Christian and non Christian needs to read One Heartbeat Away. Phenomenal book. I have 0% doubt of anything in my faith and I am amazed by some of the experiences you talk about. Thank you, Mr. Cahill, keep up the good work!”
“I am not even fully done your book and it has already awakened me. I can’t believe how lost I have been in my life. I honestly thought there was no hope for me because of all the sin I had in my life. I am so thankful for your work, and God’s work. I would have never guessed that I would be a believer in Christ at all.
“I am still struggling to find absolute truth, as you stated in your book. I am in “searching mode,” but at least now I know that truth is [out] there. I would like to sincerely thank you for the work and passion you put into writing this book. I know that I am not the first person whose life has changed because of it, nor will I be the last.”
“The inmates in solitary at an Ohio prison got One Heartbeat Away and One Thing You Can’t Do In Heaven a few weeks ago. One of them told me it was the BEST book he ever read! (He has not read the Bible yet!) These books and God truly change lives. Mark, you have a huge heart for those that are incarcerated! Keep up the good work and huge THANKS!”
“I was lost and on the highway to hell until I read Mark’s book One Thing You Can’t Do in Heaven, Jesus spoke to me through him. I was breaking every commandment in the Book, and gave my life to Jesus and was baptized last Sunday. I bought One Heartbeat Away where I again gathered some great talking points, and recently gave my testimony to a close friend, telling him we are both ’one heartbeat away’ from judgment day. Rick told me after the conversation that he was a backslider, and Sunday morning he is going forward to rededicate his life to Christ and wants to be in Heaven. Unreal. The title of the book says it all.”
“So far [One Heartbeat Away] has strengthened my faith and reinforced the fact that there is a heaven and hell. I don’t see how anyone can read this book and not see that there is a creator GOD, who sent his Son to die for the sins of the world. It is the best apologetics I have seen or read. I am hoping in the future to get a box of the new book and the old book to give out to people. Keep up the great work Mark!”
Oklahoma City, OK
“Since reading Mark’s book, I have in the first 2 weeks not only changed my life; but also those of the people around me. I have stepped out and talked to more than 20 people and had 7 of them come to church with me. Thanks Mark for your inspiration and encouragement.”
“My 78-year old mother professes to be a Christian, but I felt that she still didn’t understand salvation. She was looking for something to read, and I recommended your book, One Heartbeat Away. She finished it in two days, loved it, and now understands the purpose of Jesus’ life and death. Thank you for writing your book in such an easy-to-understand tone!”
“I just finished reading your book and will be placing an order for 5 books to share with co-workers. I led one co-worker to Christ a week ago. Your book is thorough, relate-able, and practical in answering many common questions and obstacles for persons inquiring about Christianity and the Bible. I am excited about the new work of grace in my heart as I have understood with fresh conviction of the reality of hell and the need for everyone to be warned and genuinely invited and persuaded to embrace the Gospel. My visit with you and your new book were timely and significant in giving me the boost I needed to be faithful to Christ and my destiny. Thank you for your obedience and passion.”
“One Heartbeat Away is an AMAZING book and I really recommend reading it! It is a powerful tool/resource to use in leading your friends to Christ!”
—S Bruce, 15
“I’ve read both of your books, One Thing You Can’t Do In Heaven and One heartbeat Away, Your Journey Into Eternity. These are both awesome books. I really admire the knowledge you have when witnessing. Satan has a lot of people tricked into believing his lies and therefore denying the truth! Your books have given me tips to use when witnessing. Thank you! I also had a one-way ticket to hell canceled by the blood of Jesus!”
“I cannot recall how many people I have witnessed to, but I can tell you that in EVERY situation, I use the Word of God and the material covered in Mark Cahill’s book! One Thing You Can’t Do In Heaven and One Heartbeat Away are two ‘must have’ books for all Christians who have the burning passion and zeal for evangelism.”
—R Klave, 37
“Having been raised in the Mormon cult, I’ve been searching for an effective witnessing tool to reach my family. Mark Cahill’s One Heartbeat Away is just such a tool! My Mormon parents were the first to receive a copy.”
—A Mehlisch, 43
“In November of 2004, I heard Mark Cahill speak. I quickly read One Thing You Can’t Do in Heaven twice. I have witnessed for the Lord since Jesus tackled me over forty years ago. Since Cahill, my witness has exponentially increased and I enjoy it much more and with less intimidation. As Mark said, I am seeing the many hearts out here that God is working on. His new book One Heartbeat Away is more faith and courage nutrition and is evidence that the Holy Spirit is using Mark Cahill in advancing the mission of Jesus Christ.”
—V Costa, 68
“Just want you to know that I loved the way you wrote this one. Written specifically for the lost and searching, but with a style that equips the believer in solid Christian apologetics, this book is a real one-two punch. Also, the title is BRILLIANT! It grabs one’s attention immediately because eternity is ever on the minds of those God is drawing.”
“While I was reading your book the subject about how can we prove that the bible is truly the word of God came up in Sunday School class and the Lord reminded me that I had you book with me in my backpack and about all of the information that you had written in the first few chapters about this very subject and God directed me to give the book to the individual who had the questions, even though I had not yet finished reading it, and now I have to buy another copy when I have the funds available so that I can finish reading.”
—J Clark, 30
“A group of us from work (two men and two women) flew to Providence, RI to attend the memorial service (in Boston) for the only son of our former boss. All of us were thinking about eternity that day. Our trip included an hour-long drive to and from the airport, and I used the occasion to give each member of the group a copy of your book and talk through the issues of death, faith, and the afterlife. One of the women is Catholic but not saved—she had lots of questions about just what the Bible teaches. Your book was a wonderful evangelistic tool, both to support our discussions and as a resource for them after the trip. My Catholic friend was leaving for vacation in the Bahamas the next day, and promised to read through your book before she returned. Thanks for all that you do!”
“Great book! It uses apologetics as a means for evangelism instead of just ’winning an argument.’ I used some of the facts from the book in a conversation with some atheists online. It really gave them something to think about. I’ve read several books on apologetics but, until now, have not had any that really contained all of the points that I thought were exceptional AND were in a really readable format that also has a strong gospel message. I own two Christian bookstores and will be recommending your new book to everyone who knows someone who is a skeptic.”
“The book that you gave to me has explained to me all of my questions about ‘afterlife’ and eternity itself. Yes, this book has become my ‘journey into eternity.’ I find it fascinating to go over its pages…”
“I am a Christian and I read the book and use the information to witness others. I talked with someone for about 2 1/2 hours using your examples in the book for proving the bible is true and that there is a God. After talking with him for that long he got saved and it was an answer to prayer. I will continue to evangelize and use your examples and tips because they are so helpful. God Bless!”
—M Jimenez, 14
“Thank you for your book One Heartbeat Away. I was truly impacted by the results of the pulmonary surgeon’s interviews with people who had died on the operating table and had been revived again. It is very troubling to me that about half of those who had a near death experience saw hell. Even more so is the fact that those who saw hell did not talk about it again for a couple weeks after their dreadful experience.
“The thought of so many people seeing hell will continue to be a vivid reminder to me to witness whenever I am able.”
—Pastor B Aldrich
Witness, Mentor, CrossPollination Ministries
“I saw you speak at the Worldview seminar in Spring Hill, Florida. It had an impact on me. I was compelled to get your books and start reading; something I really don’t like to do. After reading the first chapter in One Heartbeat Away I had to stop and get to sharing. All the questions you asked made me think about how important it is to share our faith and how simple it is to do it by just asking people real questions about them that make them think about eternity. Thank you for a wonderful book and thank you for being a strong example.”
“I love the way you put things, simple. This allowed me to give the book to friends both saved and those who are searching. I am sometimes so passionate about Christ that I intimidate people, but giving away this book helped me play the supportive role instead of the lead; something God has been working on with me since my conversion. Your book walks them right down the path, handling all the excuses, tangents, and questions. Thanks for planting the seed of the Word of God deep into friends of mine with your book.
“Now that my friends and I are closing in on 40 and have children who mean so much to us, we need to be able to answer the most important question there is: “What happens after this?” If for no other reason than to lead our children the right way, His way.
“Thanks for keeping it simple and ’on point.’ We all are ’One Heartbeat Away’!”
“I read through the book in two days. Those days just happened to be before our big evangelistic outreach for our youth ministry that we do several times a semester. I was so impressed with the logical progression of truth that I used the same approach and info in my message. There were 10 students that made first time professions of faith! This is an incredible resource for anyone wanting a solid foundation from which to personally share their faith, and it is a great giveaway for the lost.”
Youth Ministry, Lubbock, TX
“One Heartbeat Away is my favorite thing to leave a lost person with following a conversation. It not only presents all the information they need to make a calculated decision concerning Jesus Christ and their eternal destination, but I find it usually extends on points I made during the conversation — great edification for non-believers. I gave away three copies to an atheist and two skeptics after a great talk in a McDonald’s parking lot. All three seemed interested in reading it, particularly the atheist. Glory to God!”
Vice President & Information Director, Project 100 Ministries
“One Heartbeat Away is done very well and does a fantastic job of explaining who we are and what we’re here on earth for. You won’t hear a better explanation of the Gospel than this (other than the Bible of course!). Basically, it’s one giant tract! If only all 6 billion people in the world could read this book! I thank God for you Mark.”
—B McCurdy, 35
Real Estate Agent, Cottonwood, CA
“Immediately after reading One Heartbeat Away, a powerful sense of urgency to witness has been placed in my spirit. I have a renewed compassion for people’s souls to be saved, and am now willing to carry this burden for their salvation.”
“This resource can reach a broader range of people than almost any I’ve come across: young, old, kind, or cruel. Solid truth presented in a challenging, readable form.
“We truly believe this book helps patients leave our office with their spiritual eyes open. We’ll soon be ready for 1,500 more.”
—S Kirkham, MD
“Since reading your book, I have had a burning inside that won’t let me be still. I feel an urgency to share the gospel. It has given me even more of an eternal perspective than I had before. I’ve given several of the books away. I am constantly in prayer and looking for opportunities to share with someone.”
—K McDonald, 35
“I wish I could hand this book out as a tract by the hundreds. The information in the first three chapters is an excellent tool for the Christian to use while witnessing. Thank you.”
—S Lester, 29
Broiler Service Technician
“One Heartbeat Away is a great book that gave me more confidence when dealing with my more ’skeptic’ friends. We all have friends that, regardless of the change in our lives and the strength of our own testimony, just can’t grasp the concept of a loving, all-powerful God. Just after reading the book, I had lunch with an old friend who I’ve been praying for 10 years. With a new-found zeal and confidence, we again talked about Christ. Using examples from One Heartbeat Away, we had a great conversation and he even agreed to read the book—with an open mind! You have to know my friend to realize the magnitude of this commitment. Thanks Mark, for taking the time to research and write such a powerful tool to help win the world for Christ.”
—J Creed, 56
“I read your first book last summer and shared it with some of my close friends. It radically changed us forever. So when the new book came out, we jumped on it. It is at least as awesome as the first. Great work Mark, thanks for your time, effort, and boldness and sharing with the lost, and equipping the saints.”
—Michael M, 17
Early Branch, SC
“Thanks so much for the book. I believed in God but could not really tell anyone why I believed. Your book answered a lot of questions that I had, now I can’t wait to share my faith with everyone. In fact I just ordered more of your books to share with family and friends.”
—L Christman, 30
“Now that he’s read the book, which he loves, we’ve been talking about how before we get married we really need to make God a focal point in our relationship. We both know He has given us the other and made our relationship work through some really difficult times. (He’s at West Point and will be deployed in the near future.) Now I want to read this book and give it to my family; I want to see what my fiancé is excited about. I think it’ll give us a great starting place in making God the focal point of our relationship.”
“I just finished reading your new book One Heartbeat Away—keep the presses running! This book is a must to have ready to give a person who is searching for the most important answer…where will you be after you leave this planet. I was talking to a client the other day and during the conversation I asked him how things were going. He said, “Going? I died over the weekend!” I said, “What do you mean?” He said he had a heart attack and flatlined, he knew he had died, but they brought him back. I asked him, “Do you think God may have been giving you another chance?” ‘Yes!’ he replied. I told my client that I was just finishing a book called One Heartbeat Away and considering what happened to him over the last weekend I want to mail him a copy of the book. He said ‘Ok!’”
“I have severe dyslexia, which makes reading a real drag, but when I picked up your book, it was not only understandable, but powerful and fun to consume.”
“The book you gave me, One Heartbeat Away, I have read cover to cover in the last 7 hours, only stopping to eat dinner, check in at the hotel and tell my fiancé about it.”
“This is one of the most remarkable books ever!!”
“Your books have helped me witness to over 50 people and give out over hundreds of tracks.”
