While the number of five star reviews for this book shows that there are people hungry for God, this book is filling them with occult teachings that are condemned in the Bible.  (Leviticus 19:31, Deuteronomy 18:10-14)  Vassula Ryden is a medium who uses the occultic practice of automatic writing to receive messages from entities she calls `Yahweh', `Jesus', `Mary', and `Daniel'.  These messages contradict the Bible, contain bad theology, and misguide the reader in the way of salvation.  She claims to see angels, demons, the souls of the dead (pg. 7), and that at times they have possessed her (pg. 140) and spoke through her (pg. 139).  She also claims that people have seen Jesus' face superimposed over her own (pg. 135). She admits she never studied theology or catechism (pg. 91) and that once when reading the Bible "the words were incomprehensible" to her and that "it was a tormenting experience" (pg. 27) Throughout the book she writes of people in the church who refused to accept these messages were from God and who tried to warn her of their real source, but she doesn't listen.  She does however admit that the devil "often uses people for his purpose" and that he "sometimes will carry out his evil actions with subtly so as not to be exposed".  This is exactly what the Apostle Paul says in 2 Corinthians 11:14 when he writes that the devil masquerades as an angel of light.    Unknowingly, She admits this to be the case with her when she writes a church pastor telling him that his God is not her god (pg. 69) For those people yearning to be brought closer to God, this book is not the way to go, instead there is no better place to look than the Holy Bible.

In Heaven is Real but so is Hell one perceives the imperceivable. This amazing book helps readers journey into a spiritual reality that exists around us, widening our vision and faith in God. Upon reading this extraordinary book, it has shown me how to become more deeply united with the Sacred Heart, which is the Heart of Jesus. This book also helped me better understand humanity's existence and that every creature was created by the Creator Himself, the One who Was, the One who Is, and the One who Is to Come! Our Father in Heaven. Every person in the world is meant to read this book! Truly it will show mankind how to live in Love who is God and to live a True Life in God. This book is truly life changing filled with abundant grace.

I found inspiration in this book. It lifted me and encouraged me about the goodness of God and to strive harder to love God and others. Vassula in many ways represents an average person and what God can do with an average person applies to all of us "average" people like me. In the hustle and bustle of day to day life i just do not spend enough time on my spiritual life and it gives me hope to hear God is so tender and kind and merciful and will help each of us just like he helped Vassula, but only if we want it . I feel after reading the book it is easier for me to speak with God. Vassula's confrontations and warfare with the devil gave me many practical pointers on how to effectively deal with evil which seems to be all around us these days. The book is well written and engaging you almost have to keep reading the next chapter to see what happens . IT kept me up half the night as I could not put it down! Things might look pretty bad these days in the world but the book gave me hope the good guys are going to win if we pray more, try to love God and turn away from our own selfishness and egotism.

I have read this book. It is simply amazing and very believable. I read some of the other comments and they are positive by far. I also noted someone who felt that this book promotes salvation through someone other than Jesus; I don't know what he read, but this book praises Jesus as the Lord and Savior. I am reminded of Acts 2:17 where God tells us that in the end times our sons and daughters will prophesy. I believe we are at the "end times" which means the end of an era, to be followed the return of Jesus as King. Having read this book I am inclined to believe that the author is very likely a genuine Prophet of the end times.

It cast away the fear and anxiety of the uncertain world with all its rapid changing. Reading this book, I felt having re-assurance that God is care...of what is going on in this world. I also feel that God gives strong unceasingly Personal Attention to each of us, and God always has a good intention. It also helped me to be aware in the time of trials. The writing came from somebody whom highly integrated, with very strong divine experience. The personality growth of the writer showed the maturity of years and years being in trials but also the growth of the strong faith which being poured out as a grace. It is an extremely beautiful experience, and by reading it, I have a lot of confirmation to walk on my own path in this world. Thank you, Lord!

A genuine calling to search for one's soul... Reading this book is like listening to a close friend sharing her own stories of supernatural experience in my living room; sincere, believable and intimate, yet awe-inspiring!  Even I'm familiar with Vassula's TLIG messages, this book helps me to connect the dots and understand them better.  Citywalker/ New York City... having trouble to leave my pen name, submitting anonymously.

I just finished this book last night and it is an amazing read! What an incredible experience this woman has had and continues to have. I found this book to be inspiring, hopeful but also a call to action to get myself back to my faith and to God's ways. Her story is absolutely fascinating and I highly recommend this book to everyone.

Reading Heaven is Real But so is Hell has opened an infinite vista, keeping my mind focued, immersed in the spiritual realm God spoke about in Ephesians 6:12, For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. May the Holy Spirit never let us forget what our Father told Vassula, I am your Father and you descend from Me...you come from Me...you belong to Me...you are Mine...you are My seed, page 31, Heaven is Real But so is Hell

God is speaking to us, let us listen! We all would do well to heed the messages Vassula Ryden has received from our Lord. After reading this book, I believe God is calling to us, warning us, preparing us, reassuring  and giving us hope. I think He is trying to pull all of us closer to Him through Vassula's Story. This book will touch you deeply!

Beware people!! This book is full of occult practices this woman uses. The Holy Bible which is Gods written word tells us to test the spirits to see if its true or not and also to stay away from mediums, people who talk to the dead, and who communicates with entities she Thinks is from God. But God clearly tells us to flee from this. Read the real words of God and read your bible which Is the truth and not this book.

The author relates her experiences and visions. However, something does not feel right about this book. I am just a layperson, not a theologian and wonder how much it coresponds to Biblical theology. It lacks some logic. In the end I felt uncomfortable about both heaven and hell. A good modern translation of the Bible would be a better source of information and much more trustworthy.

This book is a very important read for bringing humanity together to find peace that is so lacking in this world right now. Vassula comes across as very humble yet very convincing. I have no doubt that she is living a most extraordinary experience that she is boldly sharing with everyone.  Thank you for writing this book.

This book opened my mind and took me to all those secret places in my life wherein I had an invincible determination to achieve what I wanted and was baffled, surprised or ecstatic over the outcome. It gave me a spiritual insight to the invisible forces that accompanied those times I felt totally determined to do something and revealed how it affected everyone in a good or bad way. The book reinforces the will's determination to choose to be aware of God every moment and that it is He who determines all the rest and its effects. Ephesians 4:6 one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all. We, Us in Christ!

I am counting days when B&N will ship this book to me... I am so glad Vassula wrote this book and share her entire life with all of us! From the little I read "looking inside" the book, it's going to be a page turner. I'm giving it 5 stars in eager anticipation. I know I'm not going to be disappointed.

This is a wonderful read and very inspirational and informative. I am familiar with the writings of Vassula, in fact they converted me after being away from my faith for 4 years and I was so excited when I heard she was finally writing her autobiography. This book lives up to all of my expectations and it takes us ion the incredible that Vassula has experienced and is still experiencing. I thought I knew all that there was to know about her, but after reading this book I realized that was not the case. Here supernatural events and mystical visions are even much clearer to me now and the book has reminded me again how much God loves us and is bending down from Heaven to touch our hearts. I am giving this book to my family and friends in the hopes that they too will experience what I having been trying to explain to them for so many years. I think Heaven is for Real, But so is Hell will do just that. Hermission goes on and will not be finished until we each have enough love in our hearts to accept the Unity that God so desperately is asking of us. Then we will experience Peace on Earth. He promises this. This book reveals His plan and how he has used an ordinary person like us to deliver His message and hopefully bring us all home to Him where we were meant to dwell eternally. Please do share this book with all who want to live a more spiritual life or to those who are on the path, but might have lost their way. This make a wonderful gift for all occasions, but especially for Easter. I have a friend who ordered 5 of these books and was so excited about it she ordered 5 more. Her whole community is getting involved in getting the word out. Praise God for His Heavenly Love and Mercy to reach all of His children during these exceptional times. . .

I prayed for discernment, and though subtle beneath the words that seemed to follow the Bible, there is an underlying darkness. The author seems to come off as humble, but then encourages you to read her writings over and over in the book. She does not encourage reading the Bible as much as she does reading the writings she wrote while in communion with a spirit or multiple spirits claiming to be God, Jesus, Mary, etc. I can't tell you what to read, but this book was nothing like I thought it would be. I can't in good conscience recommend this book, but I caution you if you do choose to read it. I believe if you ask the Holy Spirit, it will guide your feelings. I felt a wrongness about this book.

This author's experiences are so unique and filled with the power and glory of God. Her dialogue with the reader is so down to earth, yet the experiences she has been given are out of this world. God's forgiveness and love pour through the word's of her life. She has brought the spiritual reality that is around us constantly, to the forefront of our minds. God bless this woman's work.
