For a short book, Father Benedict has presented a good bit of content. If you've read other books by this author, it will come as no surprise, that St. Augustine is a major source, particulary on the view of heaven.
This book is worth the price just for the chapter on the period of purgation. I've already passed my copy to an inquirer in the RCIA program who was having trouble with the concept.

As a noncatholic christian who enjoys Father Groeschel,i was enlightened by this book. The style of writing is extremely informative and uncomplicated by jargon. A truly peaceful read.

Think this was very well written and one to re-read. The only thing I would like is for his books to be on Kindle.

As always, Fr Groeschel writes with such clarity that the average person can truly understand. Excellent book!

Format: Paperback
In explaining what the after-life may look like, Fr. Groeschel does make reference to Dante's Inferno, but he places much more of an emphasis The Dream of Gerontius by John Henry Newman and other poetic and theological sources. Fr. Groeschel writes as he speaks - clear and directly, with occasional anecdotal or humorous tidbits to spice up the narrative.

Fr. Groeschel is, as always, well grounded in history, theology, psychology, science, and the literary, giving a very well-rounded shape to his discussions of heaven, hell, and purgatory. For a short book (only about a 100 pages) he packs a punch. There is much worthy of rereading in this thought-provoking book. I read it rather quickly, but I have already gone back over sections to read it slowly and ponder more deeply some of the content. The book is theologically dense, and yet a pleasurable and easy read. Fr. Groeschel explains the divine in human terms, and makes some of the more difficult concepts quite simple and graspable.

I recommend it to all who catechize, or are simply curious as to what our eternal moment with the Lord might be like. If you sit with this text it may well impact your faith-life, as it has mine.

I have always been interested in life after death. I also love any book by the author Father Groeschel. Some of it gets pretty deep but I enjoyed the book very much. Father Groeschel has a way of explaining things so you understand. I highly recommend it.
