Fascinating True Accounts of the Afterlife

You've heard stories of near-death experiences. Your grandmother longs to "be with Jesus." Your friend is sure angels intervened to prevent a tragic accident. A woman at work thinks her house is haunted. Can the amazing experiences of everyday people reveal insights into life on "the other side"? And what does the Bible say about it?

Heaven and the Afterlife provides biblical answers to questions like
· What happens when we die?
· What is heaven really like?
· When we arrive, will we know people?
· What role do angels play in our lives?

In Encountering Heaven and the Afterlife, trusted pastor Jim Garlow and experienced journalist Keith Wall have collected dozens of firsthand stories of near-death experiences, angelic encounters, and other startling occurrences that provide a captivating glimpse into the invisible spiritual world that surrounds us each day.

In these two books in one volume, the authors offer a message of comfort, hope, and inspiration—and a gripping reminder that life is more than what we see in the here and now.
