Publisher's Summary

What happens when we die? What is heaven really like? When we arrive, will we know people? What role do angels play in our lives? Can the amazing experiences of everyday people reveal insights into life “on the other side”?

Trusted pastor Jim Garlow and experienced journalist Keith Wall believe they can. Together they have collected dozens of firsthand stories of near-death experiences, angelic encounters, and other startling occurrences that provide a captivating glimpse into the next life, as well as the invisible spiritual world that surrounds us each day. Spoken from a biblical perspective, the authors offer a message of comfort, hope, and inspiration—and a gripping reminder that life is more than what we see in the here and now.

Don't waste your time

Don't waste your time on this one. It was a big disappointment for me. Not only was the content not what I expected, the quality of the narration wasn't good either.

Stretching It.......

I do believe in heaven.........but the stories related in this book were more coincidental than anything I found profound.......Maybe only one instance stated...........led me to think this might prove a point...all the rest mundane and uninteresting...........

Enlightening

What did you love best about Encountering Heaven and the Afterlife?

I especially appreciated the opening chapter, and thought the author did a great job supporting His reasoning in writing the book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite parts of the book were the chapters on NDE's I have had this experience, and it is comforting to know I'm not alone.

What about James L. Garlow’s performance did you like?

He was enthusiastic but not perfect, very authentic. I appreciated that.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Open your eyes to the possibilities beyond the life you know.

Any additional comments?

Great Book, more please:)

very interesting

although mixing up with the narrator would have been nice, still very captivating. love the stories.. I just think the same voice blended the stories from one to another way too much. but I definitely will listen to it again and again.

Just what I needed to increase my faith

I would definitely recommend this book. It covers just about every aspect of the afterlife and the supernatural. The stories are good and the author gives a grid for analyzing the stories in relation to each other and what we know about scripture.
