AfterLife by Hank Hanegraaff

About the book: (Nashville, TN)  Judging by book sales and movie tickets sold, we are a nation obsessed with the afterlife. Books about near-death experiences shoot to the top of the best-seller lists. But do these experiences provide trustworthy information about life after death? Hank Hanegraaff wades through the varying near-death accounts and lines them up with what the Bible says in his latest books, AfterLife: What You Need to Know about Heaven, the Hereafter & Near-Death Experiences. Does hell exist? Does heaven? Do pets go to heaven? Do we float around with wings? How much good work is required for entry? Have people been and come back to tell the tale? Will there be sex in heaven? How old are we there?
With his signature style, Hanegraaff cuts through the cultural clutter to illuminate what is know about the afterlife, what has been said about the afterlife, and how we can filter the glut of stories and revelations through biblical wisdom and discernment to help you live an abundant life today with confidence of an abundant life to come.

Margie's comments: What an incredibly interesting read! Hank Hanegraaff's AfterLife is full of biblical answers to a topic that is much misunderstood. Every religion in the world has a doctrine of the afterlife, from Nirvana to Paradise, to heaven and hell, and everywhere in between. And there are many erroneous theories as to what to expect. But God has given us answers to the afterlife in His Word. It seems as though we can hardly go very many days, weeks, or months without hearing about another "near-death" experience. Our world seems fixated on what happens after we die. I appreciate the author's clear, straightforward, and biblical truth as he fully discusses every question this fascinating subject spawns. He's very clear about what is purported to be truth about heaven and hell and what is really the truth as presented in the Bible. This book takes speculation and conjecture and reveals truth. He answers questions I never have thought to ask. As I grow older and more and more of my family members and friends die, heaven becomes more real and more longed for than ever before. AfterLife is a must-read book for those searching for the truth about what happens after our body dies and heaven and hell.

Thank you, Marjorie, for reading and so very thoughtfully reviewing AfterLife. I especially appreciate your observation that Hank clearly distinguishes between what we can confidently know about heaven and hell on the basis of Scripture and what is speculation. AfterLife helps us to live in Christ here and now with a true eternal perspective. Blessings to you!
