Of all of the books I have read about heaven, this is, thus far, my favorite. It's a deep book that challenged my thinking, expanded my vision of heaven, and had a dual effect on me.

On the one hand, I found myself giggling with delight throughout much of the first half to first 2/3rds of the book. It was like following a guide who was taking you somewhere you hadn't been before, (but thought you had), and suddenly the guide pulls back the thick foliage of the forest and you gaze upon beauties and mysteries you either didn't realize existed or had seen before but never so clearly, in glorious, living color. And before you could say, "Wow! That's amazing! That's right!" you couldn't help but let out a giggle of delight.

On the other hand, this book reminded me of the seriousness of following Christ and that sin is not to be trifled with. As Christians, we must, as Saint Paul said, "work out [our] salvation with fear and trembling..."

I started reading the abridged version but liked it so much, I didn't want to miss a thing so I switched over to the longer, unabridged version. Both were good but I thoroughly enjoyed the extra content the unabridged provided.

Besides heaven, the author also got into the unpopular subject of hell. It was a sobering subject but one most needed in today's postmodern culture.

This book about heaven is a book I would guess most Christian thinkers will definitely enjoy, especially those turned off by the "Halmark-y" types of books on the subject.

Instead of a quote, I'll leave this review with another's recommendation -

"At last! A book which rescues the afterlife from sentimentalism and makes heaven truly desirable - quite an accomplishment." - Karl Keating

I hope to read more of this author in the future.

A lot of idiotic speculation. Can't figure why I even bought it. I should have known it would be stupid stuff, but I found some of it actually offensive.. I'd rather read about the Pearly Gates. Less full of pride and willful arrogance.

example: we will all wear our sins proudly in heaven. Our sins will ID us! Don't see how that fits with the Bible saying your sins will be washed away (Isaiah).

Where has this book been all my life? Dr. Kreeft does an amazing job of making deep philosophy (even theology) both understandable and inspirational to ordinary humans. I’ve ordered five more of his books and want to read this again. Even the footnotes are engaging!

Makes you truly yearn for heaven. Excellent, intelligent, straight forward, real, orthodox Catholic answers to questions. Having faith is one thing, but having intelligent and enlightening information makes it real for you. Peter Kreeft is a respected scholar and he connects the dots using scripture, history, philosophy, classic authors and more. Even though the book is not very thick,this is not a simple or easy read, but it is a must read for those seeking the truth.

Fantastic book. Answers everything you always wondered and then some. Peter Kreeft truly is the C S Lewis of our day. I highly recommend.

Peter Kreeft is an excellent philosopher, very devoted to CS Lewis. This book was helpful to start thinking about life after this. There is a great quote about modern thoughts of equality, which I will hopefully remember forever.

Profound, delightful, I am ordering to help others see heaven is not a cartoon. And will order more Kreeft books.
I take exception to the misinformed and misleading review posted by "beanderson" "The Gospel According to Kreeft, October 25, 2000". This reviewer claims that the author, Peter Kreeft, is New Age, which is completely false. Peter Kreeft is a Catholic apologist for Christianity, professor at Boston College, and author of many books. His ideas draw heavily from religious and philosophical tradition, especially Thomas Aquinas, Socrates, and C.S. Lewis.

This book, "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Heaven", provides an unexcelled look at the nature of Heaven that offers readers a refreshingly clear, theologically sound, and always fascinating glimpse of that "undiscovered country." Kreeft's engaging and informative account thoughtfully answers intriguing questions about heaven that speaks to the mind and heart.
