    Description

    All of us long to know what life after death will be like. Best-selling author John Burke is no exception. In Imagine Heaven, Burke compares over 100 gripping stories of near-death experiences (NDEs) to what Scripture says about our biggest questions of heaven: Will I be myself? Will I see friends and loved ones? What will heaven look like? What is God like? What will we do forever? What about children and pets?

    For decades, Burke has been studying accounts of survivors brought back from near death who lived to tell of both heavenly and hellish experiences. While not every detail of individual NDEs correlate with Scripture, Burke shows how the common experiences shared by thousands of survivors - including doctors, college professors, bank presidents, people of all ages and cultures, and even blind people - point to the exhilarating picture of heaven promised in the Bible.

    This thrilling journey into the afterlife will make you feel like you've been there. It will forever change the way you view the life to come and the way you live your life today. You'll discover heaven is even more amazing than you've ever imagined.

    Great book

    Great book- amazing stories .. I very much enjoyed this book. I could do without the readers change in voices thought out the story. It was distracting and took away from the stories.

    Don't make this your only book on the subject

    One purpose of learning about NDE's is to open oneself to a good experience as one transitions from life on Earth to the Afterlife. Many report that the experience of the Afterlife is responsive to one's beliefs about it, so these beliefs may matter. This book is not by authors who say that they have experienced an NDE. It is about NDE's of others filtered through a literal reading of the Bible. If you read only this book about NDE's, you will have received a distorted picture of the experience and, possibly, limited your Afterlife experience, at least temporarily. I highly recommend also reading or listening to books by people who have actually experienced an NDE: Dr. Eben Alexander, Dr. Mary Neal, Nancy Rynes, and so many others. On the one hand, I'm glad that the authors have not taken the position that NDE's are the work of the Devil. NDE's usually involve so much love, forgiveness, and, often, beautiful descriptions of God and Jesus, that it makes no sense to maintain, as some Christians do, that the Devil creates these experiences. On the other hand, the authors bend the reports of NDE's to fit Biblical doctrine. For example, frequently, "Experiencers" report going through a tunnel on their way to Heaven. Apparently, there's no Biblical quote that supports this report. As I recall, the authors mention a tunnel only once and then they "correct" that report. They maintain that the person must have misinterpreted what he really saw. The authors attempt to persuade readers that, based on quotations from the Bible, our task on Earth is to be obedient, as children are, to a fatherly God. They say that if we are sufficiently obedient to God, we will earn rewards in Heaven beyond what is possible on Earth and beyond description. These rewards are described in very materialistic terms—homes, good jobs, fun activities like sports events, etc. While all those who accept Jesus as their Savior will be admitted to Heaven, only the obedient will receive ineffable honors and rewards. Those who do not accept Jesus as their Savior will consign themselves to Hell for eternity. At the same time, nothing in the NDE reports that they quote from supports these claims about accepting Jesus, obedience, rewards, and eternal Hell. The authors do not explain that they have based these claims on the Bible and Church teachings rather than what Experiencers have reported. I've read or listened to 100's of reports of NDE's. Many of these describe a loving and powerful God and Jesus, so loving and powerful as to be impossible to describe in words. While I've learned about only a fraction of the reports available, none have described God or Jesus as demanding obedience or handing out rewards as a father would. This description very much conflicts with NDE characterizations of God and Jesus. Nor have the authors of "Imagine Heaven" provided supporting quotes from Experiencers. At the same time, I want to thank the authors of "Imagine Heaven." I believe that this book is a step forward for many Christians, in that it does not demonize NDE’s. In addition, for me, it was the clearest and most logical explanation of Christian doctrine that I've read regarding the role of Jesus. The book’s explanation is complex, involving two times of judgement of humans. But, it all fits together. It just doesn't fit the picture one gets if one reads a lot of reports by NDE Experiencers. Nevertheless, I feel the book has an important contribution to the literature on Christianity and NDE's. I gave the narration two stars because the male narrator is distracting with his attempts to mimic women, children, and various accents. He's actually a pretty good mimic, but it's an annoying distraction nonetheless.

    I wish a different person narrated.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Imagine Heaven to be better than the print version?

    No

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Imagine Heaven?

    High pitched male voice of the narrator.
    He changed his voice when he read
    the quotes of different people
    and it was sort of annoying.
    I wish it was read by Dan Woren.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Tristan Wright’s performances?

    No.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. The book sounded so light because of the narrator.

    Heaven is so real! Potentially life-changing.

    Thank you, John, for writing this book and compiling all the near-death-experience stories. This book truly makes heaven real and tangible, and yet the splendor and warmth of heaven makes us long for that day when we arrive. In this book, John went beyond just describing and cataloging these stories but also pull the common threads among them and compare them with the biblical writings about heaven. For Christians, this book will strengthen faith about God’s promises about heaven. For not-yet-Christians, the content presents irrefutable evidence for life after this earthly life and promising direction to explore the true choices and promises of life. This book has the potential to change life.

    Good book........but

    Enjoyed listening to this book, however, I would have liked the book a lot better if the narrator wouldn’t have changed his voice when quoting the persons testimonials, it was hard to understand what he was saying!

    EXCELLENT BOOK

    Excellent book, but the reader was awful. When he read in his normal voice it was fine, but he changed his voice for every character...women, children, Jesus, etc. It's the most annoying listen ever...but the book is FABULOUS. I have hard copy, too...I recommend the hard copy over the audio.

    Narration is a hurdle but content is worth it

    The narrator has a pleasant voice but throughout the book altered it when quoting others. It was like story-time at preschool. It was cringe-worthy to hear him speaking as a woman or small child, and a bit insulting. It would be a much better read.

    Very good and helpful to understand NDEs

    The collection and presentation of NDEs in this book is well selected and explained. The connection to stories from the Bible gives a good perspective on this topic. That the speaker changes his voice for different people, i find really annoying, because it comes with a bias.
