My Visit to Hell
By Paul Thigpen
 
Nearly seven hundred years ago the Italian poet Dante wrote The Inferno, an epic tale of the fate awaiting doomed souls in the underworld. Now, the story continues… Thomas Travis had always thought the toughest streets in the ghettos of Atlanta were next door to hell. But he didn’t know just how close they were until the threat of racial violence sent him fleeing down the stairs of an abandoned building…only to fall headlong into a tortured realm of fire and ice, the place of the damned. The only chance of escape was to trust the strange elderly woman who met him there and insisted on being his guide. She claimed to know the way out, but it would lead through all the terrifying circles of divine judgment, each one deeper and more tormenting than the last. In the lowest pit, the Lord of Darkness himself lay in wait. Thomas had lived a godless life, and now there was hell to pay. If his soul could be purged on the journey, he just might make it. But the odds were against him. In hell, the only guarantee is justice…and the only way out is down.

    Dante for a new age.

    When you first begin to read this book you get a slight feeling of deja-vu, you know that you have read books similar to this one, you might have even read Dante's Inferno at one point in time. But soon¿very soon as you continue to read you begin to find the subtle differences from any other books that might have tackled this subject before. You begin to feel as if you are the one who is traversing the different levels of Hell knowing that it is a journey that will either flip some of your views upside down making you question some of the things you take for granted or cement some of the views that you already have. The prose full writing style used by the author as well as the constant twists and turns of the protagonist will capture you from the second chapter on as you continue to read through this book. Some of the imagery might be a little hard for some if you have a vivid imagination (after all this is a trip through Hell not Happy Bouncing Fluffy Bunny World) but I promise that if you stick through it you will continue to read finding it difficult to put this book down as it takes you through one heck of a ride. I have read several books on this topic before, but none has made me question the things that I have done in my life as much as this one has. Through the spiritual journey that you are taken you will take a hard look at your own life. Do I truly live for the Lord? Have I repented for the things that I have done? Have I asked for forgiveness? But you will also be reminded of God's unyielding Love for all of his children¿ even the ones that are being punished. You will see that the grave that He pours out on us does not end and does not waver¿ no matter where we find ourselves.

    Thought provoking

    Although the book si like Dante it's characters are different and more real. It amkes you think and look at things in a different way.
