Publisher's Summary

All of us long to know what life after death will be like. Best-selling author John Burke is no exception. 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.

Great book

Great book- amazing stories .. I very much enjoyed this book. I could do without the readers change in voices thought out the story. It was distracting and took away from the stories.

I wish a different person narrated.

Would you consider the audio edition of Imagine Heaven to be better than the print version?

No

What was one of the most memorable moments of Imagine Heaven?

High pitched male voice of the narrator.
He changed his voice when he read
the quotes of different people
and it was sort of annoying.
I wish it was read by Dan Woren.

Would you be willing to try another one of Tristan Wright’s performances?

No.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No. The book sounded so light because of the narrator.

Fascinating to hear of the beauty, love and mercy of the God.

I had recently lost my son to drug addiction and this brought me such comfort to know of the Extricable Mercy of God. Though the void in my heart will never be filled I take comfort in knowing that He is in the hands of his creator. Thank you for writing this book.

Definitely worth it

I gave the performance 3 stars - I just didn’t like how the narrator tried the change his voice for the various individuals. I understand why he tried to, but very few people can actually pull that off.
This book contains interviews from people that are in other countries and other religions. The author ties almost everything these people encountered with biblical scripture. And he is correct in doing so. Yes, I am a practicing Christian. But I am very objective. As a teenager I would attempt to debate my mother about “Jesus being the only way. What about remote peoples that have never been able to hear about Christ?”. She responded that Jesus is the only way, but all will be judged on the truth that they have had the opportunity to hear. “God has a backup plan for those folks. I just don’t know what it is”. He desires for all to be saved. He knows that won’t happen, for he will never over ride free will. But he is desperate for all of us. This book really backs this up. See for yourself and examine the scriptures.

From New Age to Exclusively Jesus and born again

Wow! I am or rather I was addicted to learning about spiritual traditions from around the world, I was always seeking. I always loved Jesus, but I once held him in the same light as Buddha and Krishna I was a “new age,” Seeker or a spiritual slut. Not anymore, I now see the hollowness and lack of depth in the new age arena as it’s not fulfilling. After this book, I am a born again Christian, and I feel so much peace. My friends who know me are shocked and can see and feel the transformation I’ve gone through. In just the last 72 hours everything I thought I believed has been derailed, and I’m back to Jesus 100%. This book is so powerful, I’m so grateful. When I was 10 years old, my little brother died and was brought back to life. His first words were “I want to go to church.” My family then became catholic and I always loved church... then in my teenage years I rebelled and explored other teachings, I’ve been seeking other teachings neurotically for the last twenty years, but nothing has filled that spiritual void the way the truths in this book have. I never studied the Bible, until now :-) or even thought to get back into Jesus and the Bible exclusively 100% until this book... so powerful! I’m eternally... and I mean ETERNALLY grateful. Thank you, and I pray this book may serve you as it has me.

With love,
Allison Beardsley

Wonderful story but a not so wonderful narrator.

The actual story is great and I loved it! I just didn't care for the reading style. The narrator changed his voice to mimic the characters and sounded ridiculous at times with the baby talk and phony accents. It made me actually roll my eyes while listening. Two thumbs down for the narrator but two thumbs way up for a great book!! It has entirely changed my view on life after death and heaven and hell.

Life changing

This book is amazing. There's much greater impact in hearing it than reading it, although the reader should have stuck to using his own voice rather than trying to sound like those about whom he was speaking.

This said you cannot help but be influenced and touched by the book. God's love and grace is powerfully demonstrated in this book and I cannot recommend it enough, even as a good book to leave around so the non Christians in your life can pick it up.

Narrator's stereotypical impersonations ruined it!

Interesting topics raised and I'd have given the book a higher rating had it not been for the narrators almost comedic impersonations of everyone from woman to children, it was seriously off putting and borderline condescending to attribute the most stereotypical voices to the people he impersonated. Ridiculous narration spoiled what was otherwise a good and interesting book full of profound and thought provoking topics.

Can’t wait

John Burke did a wonderful job of compiling and presenting all the Near Death Experiences and they are truly amazing I really am excited about Heaven.
I wasn’t thrilled with the Narration and all the different voices. And that Aussie accent, well!!!
Still I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone wanting to know more about Heaven.
