To Heaven and Backby Rita M Bennett
Some say they saw heaven. Others say they saw hell. Here are profound and detailed stories of men and women whose lives were forever changed by their journey to the other side of the grave and back. While many books on near-death experiences and heaven have swept the best-seller lists, few offer a solid biblical approach to death and the afterlife. To Heaven and Back tells the stories both of believing Christians whose near-death experiences deepened their faith, and of non-Christians who were converted through such an experience. Rita Bennett recounts the powerful stories these men and women have to tell and speaks comforting words to all who want to know what happens after we cross the final frontier of death. In addition to these personal accounts, Bennett probes the Scriptures and gives an intriguing biblical view of heaven and the afterlife. To Heaven and Back will comfort, inspire, and fill you with anticipation of the good things God has planned for you and for those you love now and throughout eternity.

Not many books deal extensively with the reality of heaven but this one does. I was impressed with the scope and breadth of this book which approaches this subject from a solidly Biblical perspective. It provides a much needed balance in this particular genre of books. The author artfully combines real life stories with solid research and information regarding the subject of near death experiences and heaven. I have not found another book on the subject as comprehensive. Besides setting forth a unique viewpoint, the book provides tremendous encouragement and comfort for those who have had a near death experience of their own, or for those who are facing terminal illness or are grieving the loss of a friend or loved one. I have personally purchased several copies to share with friends who are grieving and have received positive responses as a result. You will be surprised and intrigued by this book. I highly recommend it.
I have heard many people talk about Heaven but outside of the Bible, I have not seen a lot written about it. Rita Bennett's book, To Heaven and Back, has given me more understanding about this important subject, though I've been a student of the Scriptures for over forty years! Her research and description makes it an appealing place for me to look forward to. The stories of people who had near-death experiences were exciting and encouraging. I feel that anyone who has lost a loved one can find comfort and hope in its pages. You could even find yourself looking forward to going there.
