Book Rec: Imagine Heaven by John Burke

“Maybe the reason we never feel fully satisfied in this life is because we were created for the life to come.”

1 in 25 Americans has had a near-death experience. Words cannot describe what feelings this book brings to life – suffice to say it’s simply amazing and makes me long to be on the other side. But in the meantime, I hope this book brings believers even greater confidence and hope those still searching will take comfort in the universality of NDEs. Discussion guide for Imagine Heaven is included below. Burke also produced a 100-day devotional on this topic.

All of us long to know what life after death will be like. 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.
