Publisher's Summary

Based on the author's real-life story of dying on a mountain, this enthralling audiobook combines the thrills of a wilderness adventure with the awe inspiring elements of a paranormal novel.

In March of 1980, college senior Peter Panagore went ice climbing on the world-famous Lower Weeping Wall, along the Ice Fields Parkway in Alberta, Canada. His climbing partner was an experienced ice climber, but Panagore was a novice. On their descent, they became trapped on the side of the mountain. As the sun set, he was overcome by exhaustion and hypothermia. He died on the side of that mountain in 1980. In his minutes on the other side, he experienced hell, forgiveness, and unconditional love. Heaven was beautiful.

Panagore's near death experience (NDE) changed his life and resulted in an intense spiritual journey that has continued for decades. It impelled him to pursue a master's degree at Yale Divinity School focusing on systematic theology and Christian mysticism. His educational background coupled with 30 years of yogic and meditative practice and 20 years of professional work with the dying and grieving has given him unique insight, language, and perspective on heaven, God, death, life, love, beauty, and hope.

"I have told my story to audiences large and small for a decade now.... My story touches people's hearts; every time I tell it the audience is gripped and silent.... This book is about hope. It is meant to give real hope to the dying, hope to the fearful, hope to the hopeless, hope to the grieving."

    Story
    "The clarity of our purpose is the gift from Peter"

    Peter shares a complex experience in heart-felt, simple words one of the most importance aspects of our reason for being. A true page turner, followed by a well written interpretation from the heart. A genuine story from a genuine man.

    Story
    "Too much repetition & overly detailed side stories"

    Describing the near death experience is well done and the explanation for what he experienced is excellent. However I found the book spent way too much time on nonrelated background and overly detailed mountain climbing tech info.

    Story
    "Some serious continuity and credability issues"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really.


    What was most disappointing about Peter Baldwin Panagore’s story?

    The story jumped around a little bit.Two friends climbed this ice-ridden mountain.Suddenly they noticed that the sun was setting.As they watched others descend the mountain,it became clear that they were in trouble.Why were they in so much trouble?? Did they not figure out how to climb down? All of these scenarios then ensued,as one climber suffered from serious hyperthermia,and then a near death experience.After all was said and done,they are both back in the car driving around.Most people need medical treatment after something that dire.Although there were some lasting effects,there are some important details left out of this story that impacts its credability.


    What three words best describe Dan Woren’s voice?

    Dan Woren's voice was clear,believable and emotional.


    Did Heaven Is Beautiful inspire you to do anything?

    Not really.
