We all have wondered at some point in your lives if heaven is real, I know I have. Cecil Murphey and Twila Belk address this question in their new book “I Believe in Heaven”.
Wonderful stories fill the first section of the book. True accounts include near death experiences, those that went to heaven and returned, and more. The stories are beautiful. I especially enjoyed the story of Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon, who was skeptical of the spiritual. He found his proof of heaven.
The second section is the theological section that answers questions about heaven – no speculation, just biblical answers whenever available.
Some people may still doubt after reading this book, as for me - I Believe in Heaven.

Well written and documented. Makes a person wonder more in some ways though...can we go to Heaven if we have not been perfect? And do any of the sufferings we have here on earth pave the way for us? I have always felt that some of what we go through here is sort of our "Purgatory" and that was not addressed in any way. Overall though it gives lots of "food for Thought".Was this review helpful?

Cecil Murphy and Twila Belk have done an outstanding job of presenting the essence of Heaven in their book, I Believe in Heaven. This is one of the best books I have ever read about the subject of near death experiences and life after death.
The first part of the book is packed with a series of authenticated testimonies of people who have had experiences that took them to the life beyond this one, either heaven or hell. Many of the stories have similar elements, others chronicle unique observations and sensations. These various accounts encompass different beliefs and span many generations. Some of the stories speak to major changes in a person’s life after the experience.
Part II addresses frequently asked questions about Heaven. The answers are based on Biblical truth and not speculation.
This book is inspiring and brimming with the hope that a painless, joy-filled eternity in the presence of our Lord awaits. It urges the reader to pause and think about where he or she will spend eternity when his or her life journey is over without preaching, but a simple presentation of facts.
I recommend I Believe in Heaven to anyone who has lost a loved one, who fears death and what lies beyond, or who is curious about our future eternal home.

Would you like to settle some questions in your mind, once and for all, about whether all this stuff the preachers say about heaven and hell and faith in God is true or relevant to you? What legacy would you choose to gift your loved ones with after your last breath is taken this side of heaven? Maybe you care for those who are terminally ill, or have loved ones who are preparing for their final earthly journey.
I Believe in Heaven is a well-written book that includes dozens of verified (where possible) accounts of men and women who had visions of heaven or hell. Others had been determined clinically dead or comatose for periods of time lasting minutes or months, those who had clear memories of visiting either heaven – or hell. The source of the accounts come from varied, from the Scriptures to people who were helping the person who experienced the event write out what they remember.
Through these near death experiences, this book brings hope to each of us who believe what the Bible writes about heaven. It also helps those who do not yet believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior to better understand what God, heaven, and hell are all about.
This is also true for the question and answer section in Part Two. Many questions included are those that I have had or that I’ve heard others discuss about heaven and about near death experiences. One of the things that I appreciate about the authors is that they do not give “feel good” answers that they think readers want to see – they stand on what is found in the pages of the Bible. Yes, there are questions that this reader would like to see “my way” answers for, but this book can help one come to understand the answers, or lack thereof, in the Bible. There are some questions for which the authors discuss two or more theories or beliefs held by various denominations or historical teachers, as well as what Scripture says. Some of the responses inspire awe to the reader, some bring hope or comfort, while others may help them find acceptance.
I Believe in Heaven has brought this reader renewed hope and peace. I would absolutely recommend this book for adults of any age, especially those who have questions about heaven – or hell – or those who are grieving the recent passing of a loved one, even those who are sitting on the fence about giving their life to the Lord. This reader believes this book is an essential read and re-read blessing for loved ones, clergy, and caregivers of the terminally ill to help them understand the phenomena that occurs with many in their final earthly journey and to help their loved one or patient with their unique needs in the journey. It is also, this reader believes, a book that encourages every believer in Jesus Christ to live out their faith with action as truly is far more than life on this earth.

This book is definitely a great read! It is put together in an easy to follow format. You are able to read a couple of the stories if you are short on time or read it start to finish! The stories that the authors uses are full of love and hope. They speak of a beautiful place that we cannot begin to imagine. The stories will definitely make you think about your life and those you love, it will bring you to tears as you feel the loss the families felt but also bring tears of joy with the knowledge of what awaits us.
I Believe In Heaven is a book that I will recommend to friends and most likely read again!

This book is a wonderful affirmation of the existence of heaven. For those of us who believe in heaven, it is simply confirms our belief in the reality of it. For those who don’t believe or are unsure, it offers evidence of its existence with examples from Biblical times to the present. Cecil Murphey and Twila Belk have presented the events in others lives.
Following the stories relating others near-death experiences and the experiences of those watching others passing from this life, the authors give an overview of heaven and hell based on a Biblical point of view without delving into denominational ideologies.
I highly recommend this book to encourage those of us still living on this earth to hold fast to our faith. I also recommend it to those who don’t believe in heaven/hell as a source of study on a matter of importance to each of us.

I Believe in Heaven is the third book I’ve read by Cecil Murphy. I thoroughly enjoyed 90 Minutes in Heaven and A Walk Through the Dark. This book was just as wonderful. I enjoy reading stories about people who have experienced Heaven and what really intrigued me about this book was that in addition to present day accounts, this book talked also about accounts of people from the Bible who experienced Heaven, bringing my understanding of Heaven and what I may encounter there full circle. This is one book that I will enjoy discussing with others, either in a book club or just talking a walk with my husband or family or friends. Thank you, Mr. Murphy and Ms. Belk, for writing a book that captured my attention in such a terrific way.
