Book Description

Everybody has one. It’s called a "haunt detector." It’s the little alarm that goes off in our heads whenever we detect that something mysterious or supernatural has occurred. You could be sitting around relaxing one day at home, and for no special reason you start thinking about someone. Maybe you haven’t thought about this person in years. Then the phone rings; you pick it up, and amazingly, it’s that person! Many of us have experienced this phenomenon.

What is it?

Anthony DeStefano answers this compelling question in his fascinating new book, The Invisible World. No matter how little we may understand or how fleeting such moments can be, he explains the reality of the spiritual dimension that surrounds us and shows how it is immediately accessible to everyone. All aspects of the spiritual realm are discussed, including the existence of angels and demons, the whereabouts of loved ones who have passed, and even the presence and activity of God in our lives. Written to be completely consistent with traditional Christian teaching, The Invisible World will help readers embrace a certitude that makes it easier to act according to their moral beliefs, give them a greater sense of the richness of life, and show them that no amount of suffering in their life—physical, mental, or emotional—will ever be able to destroy the profound sense of inner peace that can be experienced on a daily basis.

For those seeking reassurance about meaning in their life, nothing is more significant than to be reminded that no one is alone. In The Invisible World, Anthony DeStefano shows the truth of this in a captivating and inspiring way.

Editorial Reviews


I may not always agree with Anthony DeStefano, but there is no doubt he is a highly intelligent and witty writer; and assuming the existence an invisible world, he has produced a very interesting and thought-provoking book about spirituality.
-- Vincent Bugliosi 
Author of Divinity of Doubt: The God Question
As well as five NY Times Bestellers, including Helter Skelter 
Sadly, many people today are so materialistic in their thinking that they’ve forgotten that the most important things in life are unseen and spiritual. Love, honor, compassion, forgiveness, hope—All of these are invisible. Finally, there is a book that makes the whole invisible spiritual world come to life in the most extraordinary and vivid way. Anthony DeStefano’s words will inspire even the most hardened and materialistic cynic to begin exploring a richer, fuller life based on faith in a God who is so good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book! A "must read"! March 21, 2011
This is by far one of the best spiritual books I have ever read. It conveys deep theological insights in an easy to follow writing style. The chapters on suffering and the four last things, in particular, are both moving and profound. At last, a book that treats the invisible realities of the soul and spiritual world with reverence and respect! I am sharing this book with all my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Theological Examination of the Invisible World April 11, 2011
In writing "The Invisible World- Understanding Angels, Demons, and the Spiritual Realities that Surround Us," Anthony Destefano sought to "try to make the invisible realities that surround us just a little more visible." To do so, he stays away from the anecdotes so common in most books about angels, demons, and the life after this one. Instead, he relies on "solid theology, informed by common sense and logic, and backed up by Biblical scholarship and the universal teaching of the Christian Church over the past two thousand years." This is what makes this work such a valuable resource.

Destefano explores the role of angels and demons and why they continue to battle over our souls. Demons want desperately to hurt God, but they can't hurt God Himself. Therefore, they instead try to "hurt that which bears the image of God. . . In other words, you do everything you can to hurt those miserable, fallen, and inferior creatures known as human beings. . . If the demons can persuade us to turn against God, that represents the only `victory' they can ever achieve against the one whom they despise so much." The angels, on the other hand, are there to help us. They "have a mission to accomplish - our ultimate salvation - and that's what they spend their time focusing on."

Destefano also examines the importance of free will and the choices we make. He also emphasizes the importance of putting God first in our lives. Even good things can be held up as idols. "If God is anything but number one in your life, then your priorities are screwed up - period. Knowing that, the devil's primary objective is always to get you to set up `false idols,' and thereby relegate God to the number two position in your life . . . or even better, get him off the list completely.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Eternal, Unseen World Around Us April 13, 2011
"While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen, are temporal; but the things which are not seen, are eternal." ~2 Corinthians 4:18

Many people have the experience of a certain book coming along at just the right time. "The Invisible World" by Anthony DeStefano was such a book for me. In bringing me back to the basic truths about God and the supernatural it freshened my perspective about earthly events, helping me to once more view the trials and tragedies of life in a supernatural light. Sometimes going back to the beginning and contemplating on a deeper level the simple truths of faith which we were taught in childhood can be the most worthwhile spiritual exercise. God is pure spirit, Who created us and Who loves us, yet He permits us to have free will because He does not want mindless automatons. Reflecting upon the greatness and power of God, knowing that such a great God sustains our very beings, can be overwhelming as well as humbling.

Written in a conversational tone, Mr. DeStefano discusses the most profound topics with clarity and insight. The simplicity of the approach reminded me a great deal of C.S. Lewis apologetic works, and yet "The Invisible World" is unabashedly Catholic, with much taken from the Scriptures and the wisdom of the saints. While it is a book I would feel comfortable handing to an atheist because of the logical explanations used, there is a great deal of depth to plumb so that lifelong practicing Catholics will surely find plenty of inspiration. I found the discussions of the angelic realm and of the battle between the good and evil angels to be particularly intriguing, especially since we are involved whether we want to be or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book makes the invisible visible March 22, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Once again Anthony Destefano has taken an ethereal subject and made it real. He answers the tough questions of why evil and suffering exist in this world and paints a picture of the beatific vision of God that we all, in the deepest part of our being long for. He takes a difficult subject and both deeply and simply reveals the truth. I could not put it down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do you believe in the angels and demons April 11, 2011
By Wyn
This was an excellent easy-to-read book about the world around us that contains the angels, why some of them are demons, and how we should interact with them. Although I did not agree with all of Mr. DeStefano's theology, I certainly learned some aspects that I either hadn't come across before or hadn't viewed in that way. I believe that anyone of any religious persuasion or non-beliefs would find the book interesting and challenging. It wasn't full of little anecdotal angel stories, nor was it an indepth treatise about the hierarchy of the angels, it was biblically based information proving that the invisible world of God exists put in a layman's language. Mr. DeStefano encouraged the readers to apply the information to their own life and learn to include God and his invisible force in their everyday existance.
