An extraordinary work that sits directly at the intersection of inspiration and entertainment. In this charming, witty, uplifting work, Anthony DeStefano did for me what 30 years of church couldn't: he made me believe in Heaven.
With chapters like "Luxury Accomodations," "Our Tour Guides," and "A Heavenly Makeover," the author of this book paints a picture of the afterlife that's equal parts comforting and edifying.
But by far, my favorite chapter is "Do All Dogs go to Heaven?" Having just lost my golden retreiver, my best friend for 13 years, the author's answer ("Of course!") gave me hope that one day I might see him again.
Everyone I know is getting a copy of this book for Christmas.

Wow...I bought this book on a lark, and I'm so glad I did. I've read other books that explore the subject of the afterlife, but none was ever as uplifting as this one. Other books on life after death were always either a little scary or strange. This author doesn't claim to have actually been to Heaven, but instead uses solid research to back up his vision of life after death. After I finished the book, I was left with feelings of hope and security. I can see how it would be comforting for someone who recently lost a loved one, or someone who is struggling with illness themselves. I've already purchased this book for two of my friends--it's the kind of book that, once you read it, you want to share it with others. Overall, a great read!

I was touched and delighted by this beautiful work. This book does more than anything I've ever read to make heaven real and accessible to the average Christian. I loved the logical speculations and imaginative ideas, and I admire Mr. Destefano's attempt to make this book as ecumenical as possible, focusing on what all Christian sects teach in common about the afterlife. Devoid of jargon and full of hope, A Travel Guide to Heaven is something I recommend for anyone who wants to know the basis for Christian optimism.

I loved this book! It's well written, exciting, comforting, and "down to earth" -- quite a feat for a book about heaven!
I lost a close friend recently, and this is just the book I needed to feel a sense of comfort and to ease some of my pain.
I will be getting several copies to give to friends who have lost loved ones. It will probably be the best thing they could receive to help them during this tough time.

Having recently lost a loved one, I found this book comforting and reassuring. I have already reccommended it to many friends and family members. I enjoy the 'travel' theme and think it was an ingeneous way to present a timeless subject!

Sure, everybody wants to go to heaven. But what's actually there? What will heaven be like?
Read A Travel Guide to Heaven by Anthony DeStefano... and you'll find out!
You see, God has already told us quite a lot about heaven. It's in the Bible - but most people never take the time to find the passages that describe heaven. Sadly, not very many people even think that much about heaven and all the good things in store for us there!
But Anthony DeStafano has. And he's written a book to give us a "guided tour" of heaven - which is unlike anything you've ever seen!
A Travel Guide to Heaven has already received rave reviews and recommendations from famous celebrities and national leaders, such as: Lee Iacocca... Regis Philbin... Quincy Jones... Susan Lucci... Bowie Kuhn... Robin Leach... Pat Boone... Bill Bennett...and many, many others!
You'll discover that there's much more to heaven than white clouds, pearly gates, and angels playing harps! A lot more!
For instance, reading A Travel Guide to Heaven will answer dozens of your questions about heaven, such as...
* What, specifically, is going to make me so happy to be in heaven for all eternity?
* Will I be able to see God face-to-face? What will that be like?
* Will heaven be fun?
* Will there be pets in heaven?
* Will I experience pleasure in heaven?
* Will there be sex in heaven?
* Will I get to see my deceased relatives and friends who made it in?
* Will I know what's happening to my loved ones who are still on earth?
* Will I have unlimited knowledge in heaven?
* Will I still be married to my spouse in heaven?
* Will I be able to laugh and play in heaven? Will there be work to do?
* What will I actually do in heaven?

If you have ever gone through a time in your life that seemed hopeless, as so many of us have, this is the book to read! When so many bad things happen in life there is almost never a way to bring your spirits up. This book made me laugh and cry at the same time. I've read it twice already, and I will continue to remind myself again and again of all the comforting and hopeful insights that this book covers! I LOVE IT!

I think it is better than Lewis' The Great Divorce, and that is saying something. It is easy to understand but with some very sublime insights. Moreover, its happy message cannot miss.
I am hopeful that this book might possibly lead to a renewed faith-based discussion of the afterlife, devoid of all the new age nonsense about communicating with the dead.

I strongly recommend it.
