After Life -- What You Need to Know About Heaven...

After Life -- What You Need To Know About Heaven, The Hereafter, and Near-Death Experiences
Hank Hanegraaff

My Thoughts:
I've been a follower of Hank Hanegraaff for many years, and I respect the amount of research he puts into his work. Recently I've read a couple of books about near-death experiences, and while I was skeptical, I was curious about the validity of them. Wouldn't it be nice to know exactly where we are headed after death?

So I was very excited when I saw that Mr. Hanegraaff had completed his research on this topic and had published this book.

After Life is divided into three sections -- Life After Life: The Eternal Heaven and Earth, The Transitional Heaven, and Life: What You Do Now Counts for All Eternity. Within each section are Biblical answers to those burning questions we all have. Are near-death experiences real? Is there a Hell? Where is Heaven and what is it like? And even Do pets go to Heaven?

As is typical of Hanegraaff, he doesn't mince words and he doesn't deal in opinions. He clearly shows Biblical justification for his answers, and he is always sure to keep the referenced verses in context. He is highly intellectual, and the style of his writing reflects that. It's pretty straight-forward, but is definitely more complex than most novels or best-selling non-fiction books. But I like that -- he presumes his audience is serious about the topic and doesn't want fluff.

In addition to clearing up some misperceptions and some wishful thinking that I had, After Life has caused me to greater appreciate life here on Earth and to look forward to eternity with new excitement and energy. This is a much needed book of truth in a world of opinion and personal experience.

Thank you, Susan, for reading and so very thoughtfully reviewing AfterLife! I especially appreciate your observation that Hank respects the intelligence of his readers. He straightforwardly presents and defends biblical truth —- testing everything in light of Scripture.
