Just wondering what you think about the book. I was curious & checked it out on Amazon. I like the reviews & ordered a copy myself.

I've been reading and enjoying it. The author's vision of heaven is sooo different from every other one I've readÂand I've been reading about the afterlife for a long time. So in a way it's hard for me to accept it at face value, although the narrative tends to pull the reader in. Also, her frame of reference is what I'd describe as textbook Christian, and I think this is bound to color her experience. She almost sounds as though she has a crush on Jesus. But her voice is very appealing, and happiness just radiates from her story.

I love the dazzling details, such as the roses embedded in marble and the sensations she describes under water.

To me, her description of heaven is as I've read in the Bible.....so it's pretty much the same as what I've heard before......of course, the Bible doesn't give us the detail that she has which I agree are dazzling!

I have finished the book, and I loved it!! it's so easy to read and it sounds so beautiful in heaven, who would want to come back?
Anyway my husband ( who by the way is not a reader, doesn't like to read) has already finished quite a few pages, he is also very curious about the book, he really likes what he's read so far, I hope all our loved ones are in such a beautiful place, it gives much comfort.
