The Other Side of Heaven: From Book to Movie to Paperback

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- The missionary memoirs of Elder John H. Groberg, found in his popular book "In the Eye of the Storm," can now be enjoyed in paperback as "The Other Side of Heaven."

"In the Eye of the Storm" has been re-titled "The Other Side of Heaven" for its paperback version available December 10th th coincide with the theatrical release, December 14 locally and December 21 nationally, of the major motion picture based on Elder Groberg's book. The cover art of the paperback release will match the promotional movie poster.

This first-person account tells such stories as: The emergency night voyage on a turbulent sea, and the anxious search for the only guiding light into the destination harbor. The boy whose apparently lifeless body was handed to the missionaries with the words, "Here, make him well again -- you have the power." The storm that overturned the boat, throwing the missionaries into the raging sea. The hurricae that hit the little island. The hunger when the usual supply boat failed to show up. And so much more.

This account tells the fascinating story of the three years he spent on the islands in the South Pacific amidst a kindly people who had a deep faith in God, a faith that provides a backdrop for Elder Groberg's accounts of miraculous healings, protective warnings, and perilous voyages.

This remarkable book paints a vivid picture of missionary life in a society geared to "a different way of thinking." But it is far from being solely a collection of stories. To the experiences it recounts, the author has added observations on the scenes and circumstances that in an inspiring way bring out the gospel principles involved. Given this combination, the total effect of the book is that from the time reader's are introduced to this young missionary through his journey to Tonga they will be engrossed in his story until the end.
