I loved this book and intend to use it in a women's Bible Study group I'm in. I'm so tired of the study books that dwell on horrible problems, inferring all kinds of bizarre things from the book of Revelations, promise you wealth if you do this or that, dictate your prayers to you, or that have everyone sobbing at the end of the video. This is uplifting, joyful and based on scripture.
I've checked the reviews on this book at amazon.com and among those few who give it poor reviews the writers seem hostile. I don't understand this. I thought the book interesting and fun. It certainly is not a scholarly thesis. It is a simple book explaining one man's idea of what heaven is like. I disagree with some of the author's doctrine and his interpretations of some scriptural passages, but taken on the whole, his viewpoints are credibly valid. I also believe his chapters on what it means to be a Christian are enlightening. I would recommend this book to others to read, especially if you have the idea that Christianity is austere or mere wishful thinking and that the idea of heaven is boring.
It was a nice read. Enjoyed "Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes to" by the same author much more.
I really enjoyed reading this book. Mr. DeStefano's ideas and beliefs are comforting and inspiring.
Do you ever wonder what Heaven is like? Then this is the book for you. Not exactly scriptural, but wonderful all the same! I used it in a Bible Study class, and everyone loved it.
