A recent "Newsweek" poll reports that 76 percent of Americans believe in heaven. Yet even avid believers have difficulty conjuring up more than vague images of halos, harps, and wispy angels in flowing robes. Anthony DeStefano knew there had to be a more complete, meaningful, and comforting vision of what heaven is like, and "A Travel Guide to Heaven" is the entertaining and enlightening result. Using the Bible as his guide, the author notes that heaven is not only a spiritual place, but also a physical place, a fabulous luxury resort more sumptuous than any on Earth. The residents are real, their bodies transformed into their most perfect selves physically, emotionally, and spiritually. By making a spiritual subject immensely physical, the book provides a picture of amazing places to visit, things to do, luxuries for pampering not to mention deep, abiding joy. Combining the clarity and logic of C. S. Lewis with a terrific sense of fun and adventure, DeStefano creates a brilliant, reassuring portrait of heaven, a place that has intrigued and puzzled humankind throughout history. With its clear view of the afterlife, "A Travel Guide to Heaven" might best be compared to James Van Praagh's "Talking to Heaven" or Betty J. Eadie's "Embraced by the Light "in its tremendous message of comfort and reassurance."
