More Glimpses of Heaven by Trudy Harris is a poignant and inspirational book. Harris has collected stories from several hospice workers, as well as some writings of her own, of their experiences with patients who had unusual deaths. Each story is unique and beautiful in its own way. From a young boy dying from leukemia who is determined that his mother will be cared for after he's gone to a elderly soldier preparing to meet his Captain, there is a message of hope in every story of death. Christians have a different view of death than most; although they mourn their own loss, they rejoice at the new life the departed have in Heaven. Hospice workers are special in that part of their job is to ensure a painless and fear-free passing, so they are face to face with the dying on a daily basis. Their stories made me cry again and again, because they are so terribly beautiful. To read of a child who dies with a smile on their face because they see Jesus is heart-breaking, but it's also a promise of hope to readers that someday they will experience the same. Death is frightening to most people. The hospice workers who wrote these pieces not only serve their regular patients by relieving their fears, their stories will also relieve those same fears in anyone who reads this book. It's not an easy one to read, but it is well worth the time and every tear shed.

Jesus said "I am with you always." This narrative gives us a precious glimpse of that promise and a peace beyond understanding that He will never forsake us. A very comforting read.

I thought this book was extremely inspiring and a good read. It caught my attention and the story is so sentimental and inspiraring. Not only is Trudy Harris an exceptional author, but she is really a gemstone with how she talks about the experiences and occurences dealing with her patients. The Story is a must read if you are curious about life after death and experiences of the final hours of life/ inspirational short stories. A book- well worth your time.

Shortly after buying this book, my brother-in-law went into Hospice. The stories I read were comforting, giving me a glimpse into the setting my sister and her family were in and how well they were being comforted by the Hospice Nurses.

Trudy Harris in her new book, "More Glimpses Of Heaven" Book Two in her Glimpses Of Heaven series published by Revell gives us more stories of in the final days and moments of the terminally ill and dying. Trudy Harris was a hospice nurse for many years before she became president of the Hospice Foundation for Caring. With all these years of experience she has many stories to tell and associates who also have stories that give us a glimpse of those who are dying see just before they are ushered into eternity. Everyone of us will not only face death ourselves but we will have friends and relatives who also will face death. These stories will help us deal with our own mortality but also with the passing of our loved ones. "More Glimpses Of Heaven" is full of stories of hope and grace, stories that allow the veil to be drawn back so we can see how God moves in even our deaths. In "More Glimpses Of Heaven" Ms. Harris gives us 47 stories of people who have names and that is what makes this book so real and compelling. Yes, some stories will make you cry and a box of tissues should be at hand. Ms. Harris does a great job in making death seem less painful and making Heaven seem more real.

I really liked her first book but I have to say this second book isn't what I expected. It seems to be over loaded with God this time. I love God and pray to Him but I find every story to be more about Trudy and her faith than the actual patient. I was especially disturbed with the story where the supervisor nurse said this particular patient did want to talk about God and Trudy wanted this patient and planned how to talk to him about that. I found it to be disrespectful.Too bad. I really liked the first book.
