Stogner's experience begins with a dream in which he believes he was assured that his cancer-stricken wife, Katie, would soon leave him and be taken to heaven. Others told him they also had dreams and visions confirming his own, one of which was a vision of Katie dancing with Jesus.
As a result of his and the others' dreams and visions, Stogner's personal perception of God changed from a belief that God initiated events in the universe, including people's lives, then retired from them, to a view that God is personal--and that he cares about the moment-by-moment details of everyone's life and experiences.
"I used to believe that visions, dreams, and miracles only happened back in biblical times," he said. "Now, I understand things differently. I have come to understand things happen differently. I can't tell you the number of Divine interruptions in my life since my dream. I used to flinch when others would say these things. Now, I know I was wrong," he said.
Stogner's beliefs have led him to tell his own story, a story in which no one need fear death for themselves. He says that he has come to peace and understanding about the ways in which God does things.
"Into God's Country" is his account of what he believes about Divine Intervention and how it has happened in his and others' lives in opportune moments.
For example, he says, he knows of a 10-year-old girl who visited his wife when she was in hospice care. When Mrs. Stogner passed, the girl said she saw an angel as she lay on the floor of her room while looking at the ceiling. The girl told him that the angel looked like a younger, healthy "Mrs. Katie" and she had a wonderful message for her. "Don't be afraid," the Angel said. "Heaven is wonderful. I can't wait to see you here." Stogner reveals in the book an unexplainable occurrence in the aftermath of the girl's experience, one that neither the girl nor he were prepared for.
Stogner concluded, "This is a book for everyone, no matter what they believe. If they don't believe in heaven now, maybe they will after reading 'Into God's Country.'"
