Paperback

The most relevant evangelistic challenge of our times is that unbelievers already believe in heaven! When anyone dies, "They are up there smiling down on us!" But where did they get that idea? This book investigates the sources and shows that whether people realise it or not their idea of heaven actually comes from the teaching of Jesus. So the need is - "check with the owner of the place before you presume you have your room booked". If Jesus is not real then neither is heaven. If heaven is real then you need Jesus to get there.

Surveys have shown that most people in the western world believe in the idea of heaven - but where did the idea come from? Many who believe in heaven don't know the answer to that, which suggests to the sceptic that the concept of heaven is nothing more than wishful thinking. Did the idea of heaven develop through near death experiences? Is there some consensus from the different world religions? '...I've seen better. Some of the grammar and punctuation was quite poor. Where did this guy go to school? It can't have been a Catholic school. Don't they have spell checks down in Australia? Burka is spelt with a "q"'!' Pope Previous 'There were times reading this book when I wished I really was dead. And other times when I just wanted to say to the author, "You ain't nothin' but a hound dog."' Elvis Presley

A staggeringly brilliant book!
5 stars By John de Baptised, Jun 24 2014
Ever tried to wake a family member or friend to their illogical worldview? They like the idea of Heaven when their favourite rock star dies or when a friend or family member dies, but they hate Christians and regularly attack you and your world view? 
We recently had something like this happen when a family member posted to facebook page a simple comment like "isn't it nice to think our loved ones are looking down on us from Heaven" and then another Bible Believing family member tried to correct them. Soon the second family member was called a "Bible Basher" and others got angry at her too. I was left puzzled with how to help out in this situation as when emotions are involved concerning dearly departed loved ones, people don't want to hear the truth. In this book Bill gets to the truth quickly, directly and holds to the truth right the way through. He adds in the occasional comedic part to help keep the readers mood up, keep them focused and (most importantly) keep them reading about Jesus. As someone who actually prefers audio and video presentations instead of reading, I had no trouble and raced through the book in 3 nights. Personally, I think its a future Christian classic as its quick to read and delivers a most excellent gospel presentation. With such a low price and clear Gospel presentation, I will be buying more copies to hand out to friends, relatives and colleagues
