Heaven: Lost and Found

by Ian Kingsley
 

If you knew Heaven existed, wouldn’t you like to be a part of it after you die? In biblical times, some 2,000 years ago, people imagined it was a place somewhere in the clouds, but that is hardly convincing today. Have we ‘lost’ Heaven in the 21st century?

Overview

If you knew Heaven existed, wouldn’t you like to be a part of it after you die? In biblical times, some 2,000 years ago, people imagined it was a place somewhere in the clouds, but that is hardly convincing today. Have we ‘lost’ Heaven in the 21st century?
This FREE ‘taster’ from Ian Kingsley’s parent book: ‘Reality Check: Science Meets Religion’, shows how Heaven can be ‘found’ again—a place just as tangible as this world—as hinted at by Jesus. Plausible explanations for some of the mysteries of religion can offer doubters a sounder foundation for belief in God in an age requiring a logical explanation for everything. That was what inspired the parent book which includes over 70 End Notes linking to supporting online evidence. This taster about Heaven is complete in its own right and just aims to convince you that although the parent work covers many deep topics, its approach is both accessible and entertaining. It will amaze you with its new insight into Heaven.

Reader comments about the parent book: ‘Reality Check: Science Meets Relgion’…

Extremely well written and researched… Every point is very clear. The analogies are extremely imaginative and very effective. The passion in the work is powerful and every paragraph is thought-provoking... well thought through and persuasive.
—Gareth N
The most abstract of concepts are communicated in a clearly digestible form… There is a tremendous need for… arguments which transcend the physical world. For many, if not most, the task of adequately preparing oneself to respond to such questions is simply too daunting. I appreciate the scholarly professionalism and the extensive referencing… [The author] rises to the challenge of what most would consider an extremely difficult calling.
—James Revoir
This is a very intriguing piece. I believe there is a significant demand for such discussions... I especially appreciate the inviting style, which will definitely be a plus for more skeptical readers.
—Faith Rose
The survey of arguments both for and against the existence of God provides the reader with a way to better compare and contrast different viewpoints… Presenting the strengths and weaknesses of all of these different viewpoints was one of the things I liked most. I was really interested to read these chapters because, as a mathematician and a Christian, while there may be perceived conflicts between science and religion, I believe there are no conflicts between the structures and systems of the universe and God. This book also explains things very well… [and is] accessible without sacrificing scientific integrity… I think the book will be enjoyed by many and will encourage lively discussion.
—David Bortress

Meet the Author

I wanted to write from a very young age, and fiction was always the aim. But non-fiction came first: articles, and my first technical work, were published before I left school. I began work in research and development in the field of semiconductor research, where I developed a keen interest in technology. I then became a chartered engineer and designed electronic equipment for the disabled. The next step was to combine my interests by becoming a technical author and then a technical publications manager: a role I had for many years. During this part of my career I published a number of technical books under a different name. After that, I finally got around to publishing fiction. My debut novel, a psychological thriller called ‘Sandman’, was published in 2010, followed by my non-fiction work ‘Reality Check: Science Meets Religion’, in 2011. The latter stemmed from a desire to ratify apparent differences between science and religion. Then back to contemporary fiction, with 'Flying a Kite' in 2013, using underlying ideas connected with man's desire to know the so-called "meaning of life" - but with a thriller twist! My latest novel, a mystery thriller called 'The Grave Concerns of Jennifer Lloyd', was published in 2016. My author website, iankingsley.com, contains further information about all these works, together with a collation of book reviews.
