I was honored to be asked to review this work by author, Niki Behrikis Shanahan, as I have had the honor of reviewing Ms. Shanahan's other works, There Is Eternal Life For Animals, Animal Prayer Guide, and The Rainbow Bridge: Pet Loss Is Heaven's Gain. I know what an exceptional writer she is and I knew this book would be as informative and encouraging as the ones before. I was not mistaken.

Written in a slightly different slant than our author's other works, Ms. Shanahan takes us on a journey sharing with us insights from knowledgeable men and women on the subject of life after death for animals. She quotes over 60 experts consisting of theologians, scholars, teachers, pastors, evangelists, and missionaries. We are given background information on each one, dates, qualifications, religious or educational background. I found this in itself to be extremely interesting. Within the cover of her book we are taken across time, as these men and woman share God's heart concerning the fate of animals. What an eye-opener their comments give. Excellent.

The main basic of the entire book is proving that animals do indeed go to Heaven. The words of each of these experts shows without a shadow of a doubt that indeed they do. We have commentaries, revelations of the Word of God, and even visions of Heaven. I especially loved reading those as I always feel a quickening in my spirit of the reality and joy that awaits us there. Very uplifting. To me, each expert added another layer to my belief of the hereafter for animals and strengthened my faith in that area.
Being an animal lover, I certainly could not imagine my afterlife being totally fulfilled without the companionship of my beloved earthly pets. .

This book is one more step that our courageous author has taken to try and shake the Christian world in general in understanding the truth that God is a God of love, and that love includes all of creation. It helps the reader understand much of the compassion and love of God. Think about it, why would God care to know when one sparrow fell, if He was not going to bring it to its eternal home? In each of our author's books she shouts the words, "All life has value in the eyes of God, and He cares for every living thing." Her heart cry is to touch and comfort hurting souls everywhere with the knowledge from God's Word that your grief will be turned to joy once you are in your Heavenly home, for surely there God will reunite you with your pet. I applaud Mr. Shanahan for not being afraid to write the truths in God's Word that surely have touched the hearts of many. Who Says Animals Go To Heaven?, is a book that every Christian should have in their library. It certainly can be used as an essential tool when ministering to someone who is heartbroken over the death of their pet, or dealing with a doubter of the goodness of God and his love for animals, even after death A wonderful addition to her works, from a very gifted author. Highly, highly recommended.

Who Says Animals Go To Heaven?
In Niki Behrikis Shanahan's latest book, theologians, scholars, teachers, pastors, evangelists, and missionaries apply a lifelong study of the Word of God to prove the Creator's intent about animals and heaven. Their belief is that the fate of animals is tied to that of humans. Man's fall in the Garden of Eden impacted ALL creation, including animals. All living creatures wait and hope for the time of redemption promised by God. According to His Word, God's plan includes all creation and not simply humans.

Animals live and die like humans and breathe the same air. Jehovah himself says all creatures, human and animal, have a living soul. The proof of this can be found in ancient original texts of the Old Testament where the term "nephesh" is commonly interpreted to mean "soul" and used to describe the spirit of both humans and animals.

Romans 8: 19-23 promises the deliverance of all creation: the burnt out and barren places; a lost, corrupt humanity; and all God's creatures will share a new heaven and a new earth. Another example can be found in St. John's vision of heaven during his sojourn on the Isle of Patmos. In his vision, he sees all creatures in the land and sea singing praises to God in Heaven.

All creatures in the land and sea. Consider what that means. Schools of dolphins and whales cavort joyfully in the ocean. Herds of placid cattle graze contentedly in green fields. Horses frolic happily in the pasture. Family dogs and cats bring their human families comfort and happiness. All are capable of love and devotion, just like humans. Niki Behrikis Shanahan has done a wonderful job of reminding readers that ALL life has meaning and purpose in God's Plan. All her books are beautifully written in service to God and highly recommended.

If you've ever wondered...and despaired...whether or not you will see your beloved animal friends in Heaven...and known not where to turn for an answer....then look no further than Ms. Shanahan's newest book, "Who Says Animals Go to Heaven?"

This slim volume is jam-packed with over 60 commentaries by Christianity's leading scholars and authorities on the subject of life after death for animals. Ms. Shanahan's complete and thorough research reveals the deeply held beliefs of Bible experts of many denonimations, both past and present, and upon journey's end, we are left deeply blessed and uplifted by the profoundly reassuring ...and affirmative!...voices of them all.

Who Says Animals Go to Heaven? In Ms. Shanahan's latest book, you will see that it is many of Christianity's greatest leaders, that's who! Buy this wonderful book, and put all your doubts and fears to rest. There IS eternal life for animals!

Niki Shanahan has put many long hours of research into this wonderful book. She gives us a glimpse of over 60 religious leaders and Theologians that believe that all animals (including our beloved pets) do, indeed, go to Heaven. It's so wonderful to know that we will be with them again someday. I recommend this book to everyone with pets or whom has lost a pet. I definitely give this book a maximum star rating!

What a wonderful" Reference Book" to add with the three other books Niki Behrikis Shanahan has written. I want to thank her for her many hours of research . It was very comforting to read the thoughts of well known theological scholars on the subject of pets in heaven. To lose a pet is so difficult and heart breaking, but to know that our beloved pets will be united eternally is so rejoicing! I would recommend this book as a great follow up. It is easy to use as a reference and a great book to give to others on the subject. A book you will use over again to confirm "Our Pets will be in Heaven '. Many thanks again to Niki Behrikis Shanahan on a book well done.

When we lost our beloved kitty Mitzi, I was so upset and longed for some comfort. She had been rescued by us from a life of abuse and fear, and was our sweet furbaby. I was sent this book which gave me much comfort, and I have since read two other books by Niki Behrikis Shanahan, and I can recommend them to anyone who has lost a dear companion. she has put so much time and effort into them, and I thank her most sincerely. She understands so well what it is like to lose a pet, and that makes them even more special. Thank you Niki.

I recently lost my beloved dog Ringo and Cat Limpy just 2 months apart very sad. The pain of pet loss is heartbreaking and often overwhelming. I have read all 3 of Niki Behrikis Shanahan books and I must say these are the most comforting touching books I have read on the subject. All of her books are well researched and backed up with lots of Bible scriptures. I find the commentaries from 60 famous Christian Ministers from around the world to be very comforting and fascinating. Niki writes with great compassion, she shares her own experience of loss . As one reviewer wrote, this is healing balm for a broken heart. Don't let the size of these books fool you, they are small in size but have alot inside. The cover photo looks just like my cat Limpy! I will look forward to the day when I join my furbabies in heaven!! Thank you Niki for another beautiful book and God Bless you!

Here are a few other items I would recommend:

I have always believed this to be true. I read about a little girl in Guideposts telling her mother that she will meet her horse in heaven and the mother said no...she said the Bible even says there are Horses in heaven...Revelations.

i repeat that to all when they tell me I am dreaming.

the book arrived in terrific new condition and It will be a saver in my library.

I want to personally thank the Author of this book Niki Shanahan. This book "Who Says Animals Go To Heaven" has blessed me beyond words. I thank the Lord for Niki & the love that has gone into this book as she has expounded in depth from the Word Of God. We can see that God loves all Animals. I have all Niki's collection & am waiting for her new book to be released. These books are such a treasure chest to me that when I bought my Kindle last August I downloaded all her books even though I have paper back copies. You can see that these books have Blessed me. Thank you Jesus for your word & thank you again Niki for writing this power book.

I strongly disagree with any negative words that have been written about these books. God Bless you Niki keep up the good work that the Lord has called you to do.
