    Not For the Religious Faint of Heart

    Robert Heinlein was a graduate of the US Naval Academy and in his early years wrote swashbuckling SF Naval adventures-in-space with a very personal philosophical and political view. He is one of the great early science fiction writers, along with Clark, Asimov, Niven, and others, who moved beyond the BEM genre into modern, "legitimate" SF. He becomes more philosophical and less martial as he matures, but he always presents topics to ponder, puzzle, and discuss.<BR/> In [Job] Heinlein looks at Judeo-Christian religion in particular, from an unorthodox (to say the least) viewpoint that will startle, titillate, confound, illuminate, provoke, and in many cases infuriate, depending on the readers's personal belief structure.<BR/> I read it cover-to-cover in one sitting, my mind running the entire gamut of emotions from rolling-on-the-floor laughter to fury. In challenging what I expected, it challenged my lifeview and my worldview and indeed my view of the divine; the reader who can't deal with extreme irreverence will probably not enjoy this book, but it has a permanent place in my library.

    Unbelievable

    Excellent book. This book is about a man who tries to live his life without sin while the world around him gives him many opportunities to, he is a church fund-raiser (former minister), who ends up in many different worlds. The worlds keep switching while he's asleep, or not paying attention, or can't tell the difference. He and his new wife must go along these worlds, and try to figure out what is going on. Heinlein has a hilarious concept of heaven and hell, and shows the mind of a confused and sometimes overwhelmed man.

    Patience, grasshopper.

    For a devout Heinlein fan, this was a hard book to get through (though not as hard as Number of the Beast). The story drags through much of the first three quarters of the book, but makes up for it at the end. If you're not paying attention, it'll knock your chicklets out. A definite must-read.

    A Book You'll Remember Vividly for Years to Come!

    Although not your usual Heinlein plot, he does what he does best here; makes you fall in love with the characters. Funny, interesting and throroghly entertaining you will find yourself totally transported into the story. I first read this book 15 years ago and I have loved it ever since. Though I have read a number of his other books, and loved them all, none of them have made me think as much as this one.

    Good, but not quite what I really believe.

    This book really put a different spin on things, but the thing is that his mental pictures of Heaven and Hell are different than what I believe, and Saint Peter (if I remember right) having a vice is just wrong for the fact that Heaven is perfect, without sin.
