Publisher's Summary

James Van Praagh is a spiritual medium - someone who is able to bridge the physical and spiritual worlds. Unaware of his spiritual gifts until he was in his 20s, he slowly came to terms with his unique abilities. In addition, many of his sessions with grieving people who came to him looking to contact the spirits of deceased loved ones are explored.

From a devastated mother recieving a message of hope from her deceased little girl to communicating with a young man, killed in Vietnam, who doesn't realize he's dead, the theme of hope and peace in the afterlife is affirmed.

Van Praagh also helps the listener recognize and positively deal with the pain of grief in a healthy, honest manner. Part spiritual memoir, part case study, part instrumental guide, Talking to Heaven will change the way you perceive death...and life.

Excellent compilation of after life

While I disagree with the theological insights of James, I loved the different experiences of departed loved ones communicating with those left here on earth. Having had similar experiences, not through a medium, I know they are real. I also really like his advice and counsel for grieving in the last chapters. A lot of truth - esp non judgment and love is the key. Highly recommend.

Excellent, all around

This is a GREAT book. Equal parts practical guidance and real world stories. Straight to the point so it’s moderate in length. Narrarator is excellent. The only thing that needs work is the book cover art... doesn’t do right by the contents! Highly recommended.

not authentic!

far more"detail" than is believable...what spirits think, do, how they evaluate worldly & spirit life, what they believe about...well every subject imaginable. odd that other well known accepted mediums don't know all that he claims to know.

James Van Praagh’s first book.

This book was wonderfully read by Dan Woren. I have always been a huge admirer of James Van Praagh’s books and this is no exception.
