It's a good book. Buy it. The author describes Heaven and the After-life. Her sources include the Christian Bible, and the Eastern religions. She also includes a section which covers a couple of modern books about NDE (Near Death Experiences). I consider this book a beginning. The average person I expect will read this book and learn a lot but there is still some stuff missing which I hope to find included in her next book.

IT WAS NOT EXACTLY WHAT I HAD ANTICIPATED, BUT I FOUND IT VERY INTERESTING. IT RELATES WHAT IDEAS DIFFERENT RELIGIONS HAVE OF HEAVEN.

This book is outstanding. I have spent much of my life trying to understand different religions and if there is a God or not and especially if there is an afterlife. The writer of this book has done a lot of research. While she cannot prove anything(no one can), she has investigated religion, science, etc. in a very intelligent manner.
After my 75 years on earth, raised catholic, even went to a seminary to study, toured the world and saw most other religions in action, I have come to the following conclusions:
The old testament is a collection of stories, not divinely inspired, written by people to be an example for people, sometimes serving the writers purpose.
The new testament would have a lot more credibility if there were any documents that were original and not what some religious people deem the writers wanted to say.
The writers of both the new and old testament had an agenda.
No one knows; not the pope, chief rabbi, imam, archbishop of Canterbury, individuals, whether there is a God or an afterlife. One can only hope there is. No one can be sure. No matter how strong a person's faith is, it is still only faith, no proof.
To me, an intelligent church would be a church of "hope"; hope that there is a God and an afterlife.
