Overview

In this evangelistic book, John Bolin follows a fiction-meets-nonfiction approach to lead readers to a surprising encounter with Jesus—as they ponder the reality of heaven and how to get there.

The Two Doors of Heaven begins with an extended story of Jack, a guynext- door kind of person who is killed in a freak accident while sitting at a coffee shop. He awakes in the afterlife and is taken on a journey toward his moment of judgment before God. Along the way he meets several people who help him unravel life’s meaning.

The second part of the book is like a personal conversation with the author. Bolin anticipates the questions and reflections readers have and helps them explore the real issues faced in regard to the two doors of heaven.

“Every one of us has a reason— for what we do, for where we end up…”

Journey with a man named Jack to the other side of eternity. After dying in a freak accident, he enters the afterlife with four others. In this new, hyper-real existence, they each see a vivid replay of their lives, complete with answers to haunting questions. Then comes the startling truth about what happens next.

Two doors appear. One leads up. The other…down. Which will it be?

Jack’s inevitable destiny echoes the choices he made on earth. What if you could control where you’re headed?

Maybe you can. Find out what the two doors of heaven reveal for you…

Story Behind the Book

“In The Two Doors of Heaven, I want to lead non-Christians down the pathway toward a genuine encounter with Jesus. I want to catch their attention, then capture their hearts. My sense is that people today are increasingly haunted by questions about the life after this one. Vast numbers of them are not suppressing the issue of what eternity will mean for them personally, but are actively exploring it (as evidenced by the sales of books like The Five People You Meet in Heaven ). They sense that what they do and think and believe today has a definite connection with getting into heaven—but they’re by no means clear about it.”

Publishers Weekly
Bolin (Life Unlimited) takes a leap of faith in designing this unusual hybrid book. The first half, a sort of mediocre homage to the bestseller The Five People You Meet in Heaven, is a fictional tale of a man who dies tragically in a freak accident and faces the afterlife. In calculated fashion, Bolin sets the stage for six stilted characters who each receive their own chapters: Millie, the wheelchair-bound Christian; Alexis, the once-abused bitter lawyer; the Professor, the nameless intellectual who cries out to God; Elliot, the millionaire searching for life's meaning; Jack, the skeptic and primary character whose marriage is failing; and Nate, the thief on the cross who cried out for mercy as Jesus was being crucified. In succession, these individuals look into the past and offer an abbreviated discourse about why they do or don't believe in God. Bolin then spends the remainder of the book recounting an interview with a Hollywood representative in which Bolin explains the theology behind his fictional story. As Bolin eagerly attempts to evangelize his captive, nonbelieving Hollywood guest into a relationship with Christ, much of the conversation comes across as scripted and contrived. Sadly, Bolin's sketches are plodding at best and dreadfully sappy at worst. (Feb.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
