A Very Illuminating, Stunning Look at Human Life & Beyond Apr 16, 2003
I fell in love with this author and his writings after reading this beautiful, simple-hearted though philosophically-deep book. The passages that he quotes and the thoughts that he stirs are nothing shy of amazing! My spirit felt refreshed and challenged upon finishing the book. What a wonderful encouragement this book is. Don't be fooled by the small size, it is loaded with fresh insights and tender spiritual reflections.
Very inspirational and uplifting Nov 15, 2002
I'm in love with this book! It's my favorite book of all time. I first laid my eyes on this book in 1980 when it was first published. It is a book on philosophy but it is written simply and flawlessly, very refreshing. This is one book that you can go back to, time and time again to reflect and be inspired. It uplifts you when you feel down and unspirited. It has been written for the lay person to understand faith, death, hope and happiness drawn from different religions and from different philosophies.
Joyfully intense Feb 25, 2000
This is a joyfully intense book, the best I've read on the subject. It does require time to read, and time to reflect, to fully understand the message. That's one reason I loved it -- it isn't trite and full of the same old stuff you've always heard about heaven.
A thoughtful and triumphant accolade to the power of faith. Nov 3, 1999
Refreshing and powerful, well written, and straight to the point. One might suppose that a book on death would be a somber experience: in the end it is a joyful one. Why aren't we ever satisfied ? It is not because we are greedy, but rather because this is the way we were created. We will not be, we cannot be satisfied with anything this world can offer. Nothing will ever satisfy us short of heaven !
Amazing! Thoughtful and True. Oct 4, 1999
This book deals with Heaven, but even more it deals with what God, our Heavenly Father, wants for us now. It is an inspiring work drawing wisdom from C.S. Lewis and Aquinas and many more of the greatest thinkers in the history of the Church. Finding its ultimate truth in Sacred Scripture, this book will deepen your faith and bring you to a deeper understanding of the life we have in Christ.
