  1. I have been agnostic my whole life My parents were non practicing Catholics The Catholic priests I knew could never answer my questions in a satisfactory way, so I wrote them all off as hypocrites at the age of 12 I just so happen to walk into this church, my first time in a church as an adult not counting funerals and weddings , on the first day of this Imagine Heaven series John Burke is the pastor there and he is taking 5 Sunday services to cover the content in this book Burke is an engineer [...]


  2. I am not sure I have the words to convey how much I loved this book I needed this book Every so often I find a book that I cannot wait to recommend to someone that I feel would be touched or encouraged by its contents This book, however, is one that I feel should be read by everyone who has any interest at all in Heaven In fact, this book is about SO much than Heaven.In Imagine Heaven, John Burke shares stories from many people who have had near death experiences and ties together the details a [...]


  3. This is an unusual book in many ways The author takes up many of the NDE Near Death Experiences and compares them to what the Bible teaches about Heaven There is great variety and if you have not read about NDE s, this would be a great book to get a comprehensive view of them NDE s are somewhat controversial Regardless of how you may feel about them, there are many thrilling insights given in the book about Heaven The author believes that many of the NDE s substantiate what the Bible teaches con [...]


  4. I read a lot about the topic of NDE s near death experiences and the afterlife It fascinates me Not all of the books I read focus on the religious aspect, but many do I make that point because this one does include references to God, as you can see in the title, and many people who won t read books that do not include God need to know up front that this one most definitely does John Burke has been studying NDE s and recording them for many years In this book, he talks about the similarities in t [...]


  5. Great book, exciting for those who question or fear life after deathI ve often thought about seeing Jesus Christ, heaven, those who I love that passed and know Him, as well as those who passed and decided to reject Him What about life after death experiences from people from other countries and faiths, or no faiths such as atheist proclaim This book studies all these questions and , empirically and logically, mixing hope and wonder of what is yet to come Scriptures are heavily used to reference [...]


  6. Awesome book Gives hope that God exists, to any that still might doubt It highlights many examples of those who ve had near death experiences After reading this, I have no doubt, there is life after death, and it ll be quite amazing.


  7. Burke provides interesting biblical support for near death experiences He suggests that those who have died have been given glimpses or tastes of heaven and sometimes hell It was repetitive and I found myself skimming parts, but it still enhanced my hope of heaven.


  8. Imagine Heaven is so thoroughly researched that even a skeptic can see that Burke has thought of every angle He s researched near death experiences NDEs from all sorts of people those who have nothing to gain and a lot of credibility to lose e.g doctors , those from other faiths, those with disabilities here who have no disabilities in heaven, and those who had negative experiences after dying.I had a couple of secret beliefs about heaven that appear to be borne out in these accounts I wondered [...]


  9. A wonderful compilation of over 120 NDE accounts brought together in one source Heaven became tangible to me as the author brought these accounts and compared them with biblical scripture This text brings such vivid picture of Heaven with testimony after testimony from witnesses who ve seen it It also gives several accounts of the horrors that await those who choose to live separated from God eternally something I would not wish upon anyone This book is a keeper that will remain on my bookshelf [...]


  10. Well, The stories of people s death and return to this world were hard to believe First of all, the stories recorded were all from a Western worldview and perspective I would have liked to have heard about near death experiences from people in other countries I did not read the last chapter completely because it seemed the author was doing a lot of speculating As a follower of Jesus, yes, this book is comforting but I still find myself being a bit skeptical I guess the experiences of children we [...]

  12. If you have questions about what Heaven will be like, this book will give you insight It was fascinating to see what different people had to say about what Heaven was like when they gave their accounts after near death experiences I know the Bible gives us insight, but sometimes seeing what others thing is interesting as well Most of the people interviewed has positive things to say even if they did not always correlate with the Bible Some could be due to their interpretation of what they saw, o [...]

  15. I won this book on.I love this book It gives first hand accounts of Near Death Experiences What and who they saw while out of their bodies The love they felt in the presence of Jesus Gives descriptions of the beauty of Heaven How words can not explain what they saw This book tells about some of the wonder we have to look forward to after our earthly bodies are done Well worth the read.


  16. The author said that this book will not read like a textbook, but like a novel I thought it was like a homily a good one, but a homily none the less Some points seemed to be repeated many times, which became somewhat tedious Overall, this is an interesting subject, and the author takes pains to relate the various experiences to Scripture from both the Old and New Testaments This was a good book, and if you are interested in near death experiences, you ll enjoy this one.


  17. This book is full of encounters of persons who have had near death experiences NDEs The descriptions and the way they align with the biblical accounts of Heaven are amazing John Burke, the author, also brings the Bible into the pages, describing Heaven from both the NDE and the biblical accounts.I recommend this book to everyone.I received this book free from First Reads.




  18. This is an incredible book It is well organized and well researched It s content is heavy and thought provoking I recommend this book to anyone, believer or not.



  19. I greatly enjoyed this read and look around me each day with a new perspective on life and Heaven now I highly recommend it.


  20. So thoroughly researched, so balanced, so theologically sound, so readable If you know anyone in Heaven or want to go there, read this I recommend it enthusiastically.



  21. This book goes a step further than others with similar content in that the author attempts a reconciliation of world wide, multi cultural accounts of near death experiences with those that are strongly Western Christian I ve heard the argument from atheists that people from different cultures and religious beliefs experience their God in their near death encounters and thus disprove the existence of only one true God, as Christians claim This book reveals that in actuality, people world wide alm [...]


  22. Imagine Heaven is an attempt to draw and compile the commonalities among the various stories of Near Death Experiences, where someone physically dies for a period of time and claims to have taken a quick trip to Heaven and back before they are resuscitated It was certainly thought provoking During the week I was reading the book I found myself thinking about Heaven and assessing the validity of the stated claims constantly throughout the day, and even sometimes in my sleep I didn t particularly [...]


  23. This book is not what I thought it would be It is not the story of one child who thought he saw Jesus Rather, it describes studies of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people who, often in hospital settings, underwent medically verified death for minutes or hours, before reviving What they report of their lived experience after physical death what they saw and heard, the choices they were given is remarkably consistent across ages, cultures, and belief systems, including no belief or active atheis [...]


  24. This is a tricky book for me to review On one hand, and the reason I gave it four stars, it is great kindling for imagining eternity I think it was a fantastic idea to compile, compare, and contrast reported near death experiences Doing so doesn t inherently validate anyone s cuckoo report, but in the instances where a particular theme is repeated hundreds of times over, the sheer accumulation of testimonies deserves attention The individual reports are fascinating On the other hand, Burke is so [...]


  25. Author and pastor John Burke s Imagine Heaven is a bit dry at the start as the author carefully lays the premise of NDE s and heaven As his book moves forward the writing perks up and becomes interesting.I do love his elegant explanation of John 3 16 found in chapter 11 and how this verse explains how NDErs experience compassion rather than condemnation during their experience.I noted, and loved, how the author placed a chapter concerning pets at the end of his book Any pet lover would read to [...]
