that I've ever read. I hope they inspire you.


40 Days in Heaven


4.0 out of 5 stars Visions of the Paradise of God, July 23, 2017

When dreaming of heaven the imagination really can run wild. While reading this book I was not always sure that I was reading reality, some of it felt like a fantasy. On the other hand this story sounded very appealing and if the heavenly domain is this beautiful, I definitely want to go there.

This book focuses on how vast heaven is and also discusses the ideas and thoughts of many biblical characters. I kept thinking: "What are the chances that someone would visit with all these famous Bible characters all in one near-death experience?" Some other things I wondered about was all the singing, eating of fruit and "ecstasies of eternal joy." The emotions felt by the characters seemed realistic. Traveling by chariots also sounded fun, especially given the scenery described.

I don't think any other book will prepare you for what you read in this one. It is extensive. What this book taught me mostly was that any sacrifice on earth is worth the glories of heaven. I enjoyed reading about the abundance of foods but would have liked the author to have discussed what foods they actually were, besides fruit.

What is a bit surprising is how anyone could remember all the detailed conversations they had with the people they met in heaven. It seems like this would only be possible if Seneca Sodi had a photographic mind. So my suggestion is to read this like it is a fantasy and hope it is true.

Inside the Gates of Heaven


5.0 out of 5 stars Descriptions of Heaven, April 5, 2016

Oden Hetrick's family seems especially blessed. His mother had a near-death experience and some of his children also were able to visit heaven. What this book reveals is mostly Oden Hetrick's visits to heaven. He takes the reader on a tour of the heavenly city and explains how people have mansions there.

There is also information in this book about streets of gold, fruit trees, a river and what God really looks like. It is beyond fascinating for anyone who looks forward to heaven but hasn't thought a lot about what to expect. I wish the author had gone into more detail about companions in heaven. That seems very romantic although before I read this book I thought no one was supposed to be married in heaven. So you will have to decide for yourself if you will accept this information.

The experiences in this book can't really be proven but they are intriguing. If you take the stories for what they are they will leave you longing for heaven and to see Jesus. As far as books on heaven go this is the ultimate experience.

Imagine Heaven


5.0 out of 5 stars Comforting and Mind Expanding Details, November 11, 2015

"Imagine Heaven" has some of the most gorgeous descriptions of heaven I've ever read and I've read a lot of near-death experience books. John Burke has really gone beyond the call of duty and carefully explores claims of seeing heaven.

I loved how he explained near-death experiences in the light of scripture. Suddenly biblical descriptions of heaven made so much more sense. This book promotes the idea that consciousness does not end with physical death. There is a place of joy, love and peace which is so wonderful anyone who reads this book will want to go there.

In this book you will learn things like what God really looks like, what God's voice sounds like and what heaven looks like in detail. I learned a lot of new things not discussed in other near-death experience books. The book opened my eyes to the glories of heaven.

What was also interesting is how people in various cultures explain what they have seen. People see some of the same things but interpret them differently.

It was sobering to read that in heaven there are libraries and each of us has a book with all our life recorded in it. This definitely will encourage people to live a good life.

To me heaven sounds fantastic. This book gives you a vision of heaven which is unmatched in other books I've read. You will also find out what color eyes Jesus has and what his voice sounds like.

Stories About Heaven


5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Reality - 100 Stars!, November 7, 2016

"His mind seemed to have become part of God's mind."

If you love near-death experience stories or stories of people who were invited to tour heaven and hell this book is an incredible experience. Just when I think I've discovered the best book on heaven, an even more detailed and intricate story is told. This book has to be one of the best explanations of what to expect in heaven that has ever been written. I've read a lot of stories but these were more detailed and utterly fascinating. I was compelled to read page after page of stories that felt so real it was like the ultimate reality.

All except one of these stories have truth about them that makes them believable. I guess the story that did not feel right was the one where the experiencer was told he could do no wrong. Now I don't know if that meant he could do no wrong in heaven or on earth. Some stories indicate that we sometimes are not doing enough right on earth. Worship, Bible reading, prayer, evangelism and tithing are emphasized in some stories as ways to build wealth and property in heaven. God apparently makes us a partner in building our heavenly homes. This was interesting and encouraging and will help people find motivation to do God's will.

Some of the stories are really short and one feels incomplete as you don't find out why one person is not let into heaven. I would have liked to read a better conclusion. Some people end up in hell first and heaven second. One story the person alternates between a negative and positive experience for some reason. But most of the stories are really exciting, edge of your seat adventures into the unknown.

So if you've been asking what is on the other side you will learn things like there is a place where God keeps all our tears, dogs can be found playing with people in heaven and Jesus even has a horse. Some of the stories are of adults and others of children. Apparently there are people of all ages in heaven. What I also enjoyed about this book was the descriptions of angels and that their wings make music as they fly. Heaven is also filled with beautiful singing that people say is indescribably beautiful.

As a collection of stories from 1850-2010 you are not going to find another book this detailed. It is truly amazing. This book will go down in history as being one of the most beautiful books on heaven ever written.

A Divine Revelation of Heaven


4.0 out of 5 stars Heaven - Why you want to go there!, May 19, 2016

Do you want to spend eternity in heaven? After reading Mary Baxter's book on hell, my answer is an enthusiastic yes! So what is heaven like and what will people do there? This book describes people worshiping and praising God but does not go into as much detail as I would have expected. Other books like Inside the Gates of Heaven are much more detailed in that regard and describe much more about heaven than this book does. However I still enjoyed reading about the rooms where tears are collected and there is a lot more in this book about what angels do in heaven.

I felt this was a positive and encouraging account of what goes on in heaven, especially in regards to the details of what goes on around God's throne. Mary Baxter intersperses her heavenly observations with relevant Bible verses. Her descriptions of heaven are the same as other detailed accounts I've read so I think this book can be trusted. When so many people see exactly the same things...like a river and fruit trees and rainbows and the list goes on. Heaven really does sound gloriously beautiful.

This book also answers questions like what happens to babies and children when they die. Some of the information like how God creates an adult out of a child - I've never read that anywhere before. God works miracles even in heaven.

The reason I enjoyed this book is because Mary Baxter pays so much attention to the details. Even angel wings become magical with her descriptions.

There is also a description of a vision Mary has which shows Jesus returning in the sky.

So there is a lot to enjoy in this book and it will make you long for heaven.

Heaven Is Beyond Your Wildest Expectations


5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Stories of Heavenly Visits, April 9, 2016

If you read a lot of books on heaven and near-death experiences you will really enjoy this book. It has some of the most detailed descriptions of Jesus and heaven that I've ever read. God must really love us to be taking more and more people to heaven so they can return as living witnesses of the glory of God and heaven. The people who have been to hell and heaven in this book really do have some interesting and insightful things to say.

Dean's visit to heaven is highly detailed and I learned some things I didn't know before. This also contains multicultural stories like the one about a slave to a Bedouin tribe being taken to heaven by Jesus. Some of the people in this book literally cried out to God and were taken to heaven as a result.

Some of the things I learned include that there are libraries in heaven with books about each of our lives. One person explains how we each have two angels, which I suspected was true before I read this book. It was good to read that there are no language barriers in heaven. And who knew that God sings to us in heaven?

What I think I enjoyed most about this book was the way the stories were told and the incredible powers of description in each story. Heaven really does come alive in your mind when you read this book.

One thing I did notice was that one of the stories was much shorter than I'd read before. It was also edited better and made more sense.

So I'd say this is in the top 10 of books on heaven you should read in this lifetime. I really enjoyed it. From what I've read before the stories sounded true to me.

DVDs About Heaven

Evidence of Heaven DVD


5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fascinating and Completely Captivating, June 1, 2016


Is there a spiritual realm that we go to after we die and what is it like? Well this DVD is very well made and will make even the most confirmed skeptic rethink his/her beliefs. Most people today actually do believe in life after death and I think in the past people did too. Eternity is really written on our hearts and we have a desire to live beyond this temporary existence.

This DVD explores evidence that the soul survives bodily death. All the major players are interviewed here. You may have read their books as I have. Even some skeptics are interviewed so you can see what their opinion on the matter is.

Since our time on earth is short it is essential we know where we are going. As this documentary concludes we are made aware that it is our choice to enter either eternity with God or eternal separation from him. This DVD does not however go into details about what heaven will be like or what hell will be like. This focuses mostly on a number of well documented near-death experiences.

I am going to send this to my atheist friend and I hope he will be convinced that something happens after death. I so want my friends to be in heaven with me in the future. If you know someone who would be open to watching a very well done documentary I can recommend this to them. For me, I hardly wrote a thing down while watching it, it was that completely captivating.

Heaven Our Eternal Home DVD



5.0 out of 5 stars A Glimpse of the Beyond, May 19, 2016


There is no greater topic to discuss than eternity since you will be spending all your time there after you die. The deal is that you alone and only you can determine where you want to go. This documentary is divided into three sections: Revelation, Hell, Heaven. It discusses hell in a way that you'd never want to go there - no hope or love. It discusses heaven in a way that makes you feel elated and excited to go there - joy, comfort and hope. The music also creates such a longing for heaven near the end. I felt this was very well done and the facts are based on biblical references. I hope you will watch this and choose heaven as your eternal home. After watching this I'm buying a copy for a friend. This makes a perfect "eternal" gift.

My Hope America: Billy Graham




5.0 out of 5 stars Comforting Message, August 10, 2015


I just watched this excellent message that brings hope to the world. Billy Graham really explains why people find the cross offensive and why Jesus had to die in the first place. This is a very emotional presentation which will make you think more deeply about life and eternity. I always tell people that they should plan their eternity as well as their last vacation. It really is so much more important to know what is going to happen to you when you die. Now I will recommend this DVD to everyone who seems open to watching it. So often I meet people who have been on the brink of death. We really don't know when we will die so it is best to be ready. Watch this DVD and share it with your friends. What could be more important than telling someone you know how they can live eternally in heaven?

A Book about Angels


Angels Among Us - Chicken Soup for the Soul



5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Stories of Angelic Intervention, July 7, 2015


"Angels Among Us" is one of the best books I've ever read and I've read thousands of books over the past 15 years. This book is filled with amazing stories of angelic interventions. Just when people needed an angel most one appeared. What I loved most was the poignant moments of realization the authors experience.

It is difficult to stop reading the stories because each one is better than the last. Some stories give you chills and some make you feel like you are close to tears as they are so beautiful. These are very short stories (two to three pages) but they have a big impact. Some of the stories will awaken your sense of wonder.

By reading this book you will realize that you are protected and loved. Each story is just long enough to tell the complete story but short enough to keep your full attention. You may especially be amazed by the stories of animal angels. There are also some stories of ghosts.

You couldn't make up these stories even if you tried. As someone who believes in angels I must say I could relate to the stories. An angel once saved me from drowning as a child at a beach in Africa so I believe.
