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.
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 found this to be another terrific spiritual book by Fr. Groeschel. He has clarified Catholic doctrines about the afterlife.
If you are Catholic, I highly recommend it. Read more

As usual, Father Groeschel gives us knowledge, insight, great explanations and biblical references to support what he says. He is truly one of my favorite authors. Just wonderful!Published on June 11, 2013 by Joann Dietz
