This book was well written, thoroughy researched and thought provoking. Lisa Miller is an excellent religious writer who also shares her own personal religious beliefs. She is Jewish. This book is a basic discussion of the many beliefs of many different religions regarding the afterlife; specifically heaven. There is also a very warm side to the way Lisa writes as she shares her personal feelings and descriptions of the people she is interviewing. I found her interview of Ann Graham Lotz especially thoughtful and meaningful. I highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in the afterlife. As a born again Christian, it did not change my belief system but it was a fascinating read.

Ms. Miller has written a fascinating book on images of the afterlife as seen primarily in the beliefs of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Information is drawn from the early Biblical writings to modern day theologians and scholars to popular culture. Ms. Miller is objective in her presentation; she has no "agenda". A celestial afterlife is believed in by people across all religions. I liked this book because the author does not claim to know what heaven looks like. Extensive footnotes and a wide-ranging bibliography will be useful to any reader for further exploration of the subject. The information is presented; it is left to the reader to decide what heaven - of if there is a heaven - is like
