The author of this book is a "minister" (denominationally unaffiliated?), who claims to have had direct revelations from Jesus since early childhood. The book purports to be one such revelation, following a fatal automobile accident, from which Jesus sent him back, with a message for humanity. To cut to the chase, the message is this: Jesus loves us, and wants us with him in his kingdom. The author, although allowing that within his vision of heaven "There were scenes there so beyond my understanding that I don't even want to speak of them, for you would not believe them" (p.121; analytically, the sentence makes no sense), nevertheless spends many pages describing the heaven which he was supposedly allowed to experience, including the very Throne of God himself. Evidently Paul's dictum (2 Cor. 12:4) does not apply here. It would be easy to mock the book as an evangelically puerile description of what heaven should be like (everything is huge, bejeweled, fragrant, and friendly, even if the activities of the souls there are very much like a continuing revival meeting at its peak). The author includes a (mercifully brief) Jesus-guided tour of "the Other Place", which reads like a very bad Cliff-notes summation of Dante's Inferno, albeit theologically more interesting than the heaven which he describes. I am assuming, however, that the testimonies concerning the value of the book are genuine. So, there are some who, reading it, have been drawn closer to Jesus than they otherwise would have been. Although I accept the message which Jesus has sent, for me this book was not and could not have been its source.
I was mesmerized as I read this amazing account of heaven! The author is an excellent reporter of what he sees and I felt like I was right beside him, experiencing all that he was experiencing. I thank God for allowing Richard to return to earth to share all these amazing descriptions of life in heaven; it just blew me away! I am reading it now for the third time; can't get enough!Plan to buy more for friends and unbelievers. Sandy
This book is amazing. I like to read books about Heaven and this was beyond my expectations. In fact when the author was visiting Heaven and saw a home under construction but didn't know the future occupants, I was amazed as my husband and I know the future occupants of this particular house and they are alive and well. Boy, did that blow my mind! Great reading!
This book is the most comprehensive, detailed account I have ever read about heaven and I have read a number of books on heaven. As you read the book you can imagine yourself in heaven seeing some of the sights that the author is seeing. This book would be a great comfort to anyone who has lost loved ones.
I loved this book so much that I no more finished reading it and am ready to read it again. There is so much to glean from it in knowing the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the angels and how they work in heaven as well as here on earth. My relationship with the Lord is changed forever!
I have three boys in heaven and spent the past 20 years reading books on heaven. This one aligns with many of the others and like to explain it this way. If we all went to Six Flags and came home and wrote about it, our stories would be different but the reader would know we had been to Six Flags. That is what happened here, in this recount. It is similar enough that it shares some of the same places and perceptions. An excellent read and one I hope you'll trust. In fact, who would want to not tell the truth about a place as wonderful as heaven.
I love this book! I have always had an interest in heaven and especially so after losing my brother in a motorcycle accident and my mother to cancer within nine days of each other. I have recently been diagnosed with ALS so who knows how that's going to go. It gives me great comfort to know more details about heaven.
This gentleman's remembrances of Heaven are so detailed; it makes me look forward to arriving there even more and was a joy to read. I think this would be a great comfort to those who have recently lost loved ones and a wonderful encouragement as well.

God never stops loving us, even when we've reached our final home. He's blessing us at every turn. The descriptions of trees, leaves, water, final homes, etc. is awsome in this book. After reading this book, you'll be wanting to share with your family and friends. I can't remember the last time I was so enthusiastic about a read that I tell everyone I know abut it, even to the point of purhasing several to give to people who woud not ordinarily buy one for themselves.
Before, during and after I read this book - I could only come to one conclusion. Either you believe it all and want to hurry to "go home", or you question the entire contents. As the old saying goes "sounds too good to be true". I chose to believe it all and it has strengthened my faith in the afterlife.
This book has my pulse going WILD for Jesus and Heaven! This book makes my heart pound with excitement and joy! I highly encourage every human being on earth to read this FANTASTIC book! Super, easy and fast read... story is only 139 pages long... took me only a couple of hours to read. INCREDIBLE!
I love this book, I felt the love Jesus in such a way I never felt before. My faith went to such a level that when i prayed for son the Lord healed him intantly! Every time I talk to someone i just want share this book. I ordered 10 of these books and Im sharing it with friends and people that don't know the Jesus. GLORY TO GOD!!!!!!!
This is the most touching and clearly revealing book on heaven I have read, and I've read quite a few testimonies.... I even had a manifest experience of the Lord's presence in the form of His love, overtake me as I read it - I am telling all my friends to get a copy... thank you CBD, for making this book available to us...
What an awesome book. It describes Heaven in more detail than most books. It made me feel like I was walking the streets of gold with Mr. Sigmund. I read the entire book in 24 hours as I could not put it down except to sleep. What a privilege to have read this book and have an insight of what joy awaits us in Heaven. I can't imagine seeing Jesus Face to face.
