Book Reviews

Reviews of Imagine Heaven taken from

One of the best books I’ve ever read!

This book is truly a gift from God. I lost both my father and my father-in-law within a span of a little over a year. They both loved the Lord so much. God brought this book to me before I lost either of them, and I know that it played a big part in helping me prepare for their relocation to Heaven. I’m so very thankful for the HOPE that we have in JESUS. Heaven is real!


A must read for the Christian

One of the best books i ever read. It gives you a peak into heaven and what you might expect when you pass from this life to your eternal life.


Heaven, I can’t wait to get there!

This book was wonderful. I could not put it down and the people were so diverse but the experiences made a true picture that formed a pattern in a most astonishing way. I found myself laughing and excited to think I’ll soon be going home. Cleaning house so there will not be any dust bunnies to surprise me once I go. These folks tales only confirmed my own visions and previous short visits where I was privileged to spend time with Jesus but there was none of the sensory stuff or knowledge of surroundings. Amazing. Giving these as gifts to friends now.


My daughter gave me this book shortly after my sister passed away. When I opened it up, I couldn’t read it. After 3 weeks of looking at it on the shelf, I finally sat down and started reading it. I couldn’t put it down. I started envisioning how it might have been for my sister at the last moments of her life. She was alone when she left this world. I had many regrets about that. After reading this book, God gave me a vision of her with her hands lifted up to heaven, reaching for a beautiful light. She was standing with a purple sash wrapped around her waist. It was such a beautiful image. From that moment I knew she was with Jesus and not alone or in pain anymore. This book changed my life and death perspective. Highly recommend. I’ve given many out as gifts so others can feel the comfort of experiencing what our loved one’s get to experience and maybe us one day.
