This is a book that all readers will love. It is especially comforting to those who are grieving. Everyone wonders what Heaven is like. Where is it? How does one get there? Who will be there? These and many other questions are addressed in this book.
Using a combination of Scripture, gentle humor, and over one hundred personal accounts from people who have died and returned, including Malz’s own twenty-eight minutes of physical death, Malz provides likely answers to common questions about Heaven.
The explanations and stories included in this book will provide solace to those who are separated from a loved one. Emotions may vary between tearfulness and tearful joy, but no one who reads this book will regret it. It is a great comfort to know that those we miss and in such a wonderful, happy place with no suffering; only love and joy.
It would be a rare reader who is not inspired to begin laying up treasures in Heaven, anticipating a joyful homecoming.
I was given a free copy of this book by Chosen Books/Baker Publishing for the purpose of review. I highly recommend it to adult and teenage readers and especially for the bereaved.

Betty Malz was declared dead when she was 27 years old for about twenty-eight minutes, after which she returned to life. After her experience, she spent the rest of her life talking with others about what she experienced when she was in heaven, telling her story and listening to their stories. She shares some of their stories in this book and also provides answers to questions that people have asked her about heaven.
This was an interesting book to read. I thought the stories that people shared with Malz were encouraging and inspiring. The stories were interspersed throughout the book and were my favorite part of the book, with the exception of one chapter that I enjoyed even more. Throughout all the glimpses into the glory of heaven that Malz shared, she devoted an entire chapter to the idea that the journey of heaven starts here. She shares six principles to help readers travel on their journey to heaven; these are walk the talk, love life, find rest, travel with others, use our humor, and look for Jesus.
I also liked the discussion about how our desire for heaven changes throughout our lives and circumstances. I thought it made a lot of sense. Malz talked about euphemisms we use to avoid using the word “death” when the reality is that death is a shared experience. It isn’t something we need to seek or necessarily look forward to (enjoy the journey), but we don’t have to dread it. At certain times in our lives, we naturally want to avoid death at all costs, while at others, we look to the heavens and think, Jesus come quickly.
Overall, a book that offers a lot of encouragement for readers, especially those who are wondering or worrying about heaven. If you or someone you know is facing death, this book might offer comfort and reassurance.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

THE GLORY OF HEAVEN
This book made me think deeper into what Heaven was going to be like. For example: She explains of what scriptures speak of about these questions
1 Where would we live
2 What will we eat
3 What will we wear
4 How about transportation
6 Will we work and what kind of work
7 What about the children
Doesn't the Bible mention mansions does it mention any other kind of homes? Will they be by a lake, river, ocean, stream or just dry land? Maybe clouds think?
How about food will it be fish, quail, veggies, fruit If so what kind? What does it say in Revelations 22:2
what would we wear Scripture speaks of robes anything else?
What about our bodies--(1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17) Glorified Bodies. Gosh I pray this one I have is old and worn. But if in Heaven I still have this old worn body I will be just as happy because I will be with my Heavenly Father. How about you?
I recommend this book highly if you have questions about heaven see if there are answers in here for the questions along with scriptures that are there for you to go to your Bible to read along with the book.
I received this book free from Chosen for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else's.
