From the Back Cover
"Powerful, engaging, inspiring! This diverse collection of essays makes real the possibility of heaven on earth." --Meagan O'Nan, author, Creating Your Heaven on Earth "How to Achieve a Heaven on Earth is an inspiring and uplifting book. It is a thoughtful compilation of essays and other works that address the key elements of life in today's world." --Peter Ashenden, president/CEO, Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance "This book is a miscellany of experiences and ideas from well-known people such as Mother Teresa and Warren Buffett as well as ordinary people who have had extraordinary experiences. They will inform and inspire you . . . and perhaps lead you to become one of those people who creates solutions for others and for the world instead of just complaining about the problems." --Michael Norton, author, 365 Ways to Change the World "Some of the world's modern thinkers, leaders, activists, and writers offer insights on the world and what they believe can be done to find peace, security, freedom, moral purpose, meaning, and more." -Catholic Digest
