I see Heaven and He'll in a different light

Walter Joseph did a great job writing this book. He showed how difficult it is to live here on earth and how everyone is judged differently for there sins. He showed the battle between Heaven and Hell and how we have to fight to do right by God and others.

Worth every second

Great listen. Could not tear away from the story and the narration. Truly a philosophical masterpiece in words and images.
