PRIOR TO READING BOTH BOOKS HEAVEN AND HELL I LEAD A SO CALLED CHRISTIAN LIFE(MEANING I BELIEVED IN CHRIST BUT DIDN'T NECESSARILY LIVE THE PART) AFTER READING THIS BOOK SEEING WHAT HAPPENS BEYOND DEATH, THE THOUGHT OF HELL SCARED ME ENOUGH TO GIVE MY HEART, SOUL,BODY AND MIND TO JESUS, LIVING THE TRULY SPIRIT LEAD LIFE, PRAYING, STAYING IN THE WORD AND ENCOURAGING OTHERS TO CHANGE TOO. THE REWARDS IN HEAVEN, MAKES THE EFFORT TO CHANGE MY LIFE WORTH IT. IT WAS TRULY A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE READING BOTH BOOKS AND I AM BLESSED A 1000 TIMES OVER HAVING DONE SO. I WOULD ENCOURAGE ALL TO BEGIN A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS BECAUSE WITHOUT HIM WE WILL NOT MAKE IT.

Firstly, Ms. Baxter repeats everything about three times...very tiring and reminds me of Barbara Cartland's tactics to make a book look like there's more to it than there actually is./////Secondly, Ms. Baxter's 'truths' conveniently match the scriptural references she chooses to include, making it appear that she, the revelatory truths, and the Bible are all in one accord...not even!!! For example, Ms. Baxter is all about Jesus' saving blood, so she quotes scripture that endorses sacrifice. Unfortunately, there are tons of citations that say that God does not at all care for the sacrifices and burnt offerings made to him...he wants prayer and love! But she doesn't mention any of those!/////The worst thing about the book is that, while I believe Ms. Baxter may have had the experiences she describes, I don't think she represents them honestly. For example, she admits many times that she was shown only a smidgeon of Heaven, and that many things were kept from her, yet she goes on the claim all sorts of eternal truths which are for sure and certain correct despite her admitted lack of exposure to all Heaven.//////Ms. Baxter thinks that the spiritual level she experienced is the highest level of Heaven, and I can assure you and her that it is not...I've seen better and different myself. Her level of Heaven is very anthropo-friendly: divine creations that pattern humans, robes, houses, furniture, plants, etc. etc. She is utterly ignorant as to the levels of Heaven beyond the spiritu/anthropo level...the soul level, the divine level which is beyond the spirit body level...no human shapes, totally removed from human/earthly/material existence. Because she thinks that her Heaven is all there is, she confuses Jesus/Christ/(Michael) with the causal, initial essence of Deity...what Jesus denominated in a relationship sense as the Father...which Jesus presented as a different entity from himself, yet his being a revelation of that Father entity. Ms. Baxter's theology, thus, becomes extremely iffy because she doesn't seem to understand that there is a world of the 'Father' beyond the world of the Son, their not being utterly the same.....Well, if one wants to have one's simple ideas of Heaven confirmed, this is the book for you. However, if one truly desires to find out if there's more to the Divine System than what one finds in the Bible alone and isn't afraid to tackle a mountain of thought-provoking, challenging, very different information, I'd suggest that your time would be better spent by trying to plow through the massive Urantia Book.

    Sermon...

    This book was just ok. I felt like I was reading a sermon the whole time. A lot of the book is filled with scripture from the Bible, which I can get from the....Bible! Hello.... I don't believe the author was shown heaven at all. I believe hard core christians will love this book, but for your average everyday christian, no...
