Summary

A recent Newsweek poll reports that 76 percent of Americans believe in heaven. Yet even avid believers have difficulty conjuring up more than vague images of halos, harps, and wispy angels in flowing robes. Anthony DeStefano knew there had to be a more complete, meaningful, and comforting vision of what heaven is like, and A Travel Guide to Heaven is the entertaining and enlightening result.

Using the Bible as his guide, the author notes that heaven is not only a spiritual place, but also a physical place, a fabulous “luxury resort” more sumptuous than any on Earth. The residents are real, their bodies transformed into their most perfect selves - physically, emotionally, and spiritually. By making a spiritual subject immensely physical, the book provides a picture of amazing places to visit, things to do, luxuries for pampering - not to mention deep, abiding joy.

Combining the clarity and logic of C. S. Lewis with a terrific sense of fun and adventure, DeStefano creates a brilliant, reassuring portrait of heaven, a place that has intrigued and puzzled humankind throughout history. With its clear view of the afterlife, A Travel Guide to Heaven might best be compared to James Van Praagh's Talking to Heaven or Betty J. Eadie's Embraced by the Light in its tremendous message of comfort and reassurance.

A life savoir book

This is a book everybody needs to read. It was such an eye opener for me who, although a catholic, always had my doubts. I don't have them anymore. I have an enormous need to go out into the street shouting this truth. The book is so easy-going, I am going to give it to my daughters to listen to. I can't thank the author enough. May God bless him.

An Enjoyable and Refreshing Post Modernity Read

“A Travel Guide to Heaven” has been a enjoyable and refreshing read during these post modernity times when people are leaving the Church and a belief in GOD is constantly being eroded. This is not a “feel good” read but it will delight. This in not an academic tome that will bog you down. It is just right for the times we live in and the “parishioner in the pew”. Mr. DeStefano uses many direct quotes from the Bible to emphasis his ideas and perspectives on a subject that can be very eluding or overwhelming. I welcome Mr. Stefanos book to my previous readings about heaven from the academic perspective of Peter Kreeft’s “Everything You Wanted to Know about Heaven”, the more poetic perspective C.S. Lewis’ “The Great Divorce” to the popular Mitch Albom's “The Five People You Meet in Heaven”. Experienced as an Audio book.

A must read to get you on the path to heaven..

I read this book when it came out years ago. It changed my life! I bought 10 copies & gave them away - I thought everyone should read it! Although Catholic with a good knowledge of my faith, I couldn't wrap my mind around "heaven".. how can someone be happy & content ALL THE TIME!!! Mr. DeStefano has a way with words - simple yet thought provoking and backed up by scripture. I learned most importantly that not everyone goes to heaven.. our time on earth is the only time we have to pave our way to eternity! Our time here is just a drop in the vast universe - I'm spending the rest of my life preparing for the final destination!
