Imagine Heaven John Burke Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
It's obvious from the bookshelves and the big screen that heaven is on everyone's mind. All of us long to know what life after death will be like. Bestselling author John Burke is no exception. For decades, he has been studying accounts of people who have had near-death experiences (NDEs). While not every detail of individual NDEs correlate with Scripture, Burke shows how the common experiences shared by thousands of survivors clearly point to the God of the Bible and the exhilarating picture of heaven he promises.
Imagine Heaven is an inspirational journey through the Bible's picture of heaven, colored in with the real-life stories of heaven's wonders. Burke compares gripping stories of NDEs to what Scripture says about our biggest questions of heaven: Will I be myself? Will I see friends and loved ones? What will it look like? What is God like? What will we do forever? What about children and pets? This book will propel readers into an experience that will forever change their view of the life to come and the way they live life today. It also tackles the tough questions of heavenly reward and hellish NDEs. Anyone interested in NDEs or longing to imagine heaven more clearly will enjoy this fascinating and hope-filled book.

User reviews about this book
Comforting and encouraging
Since my daughter went home to heaven last year, I’ve been scouring books own the subject. “Imagine Heaven” has been such a help in the grieving process- as I truly am building my faith in the realities of heaven with each turned page. Thank you, John Burke, for all the research you’ve compiled, and for keeping to the scriptures as well as peoples’ experiences. I’m grateful.
This book was absolutely amazing. John Burke did a fantastic job putting this together. I couldn’t put the book down and when I did I couldn’t stop thinking about it 24/7. Loved it! I want everyone to read this. Xoxo
Great book at a special time in my life
Over the past several years my health has begun to fail and I have been diagnosed with 2 auto immune diseases and a host of other ailments for which I am taking some powerful drugs to control. That being said, I realize more than ever that, while my health is currently fairly steady, it could take a bad turn at any time. I saw the author on Fox News Channel promoting the book and it intrigued me. I've been in church all my life and decided to download and read the book from iTunes. It has given me inspiration and a new and different perspective than what I previously had. The insights in this book and the encouraging theme have been special to me and I'm so glad I took the time to read it. While I took care of my salvation many years ago, after reading the book I feel even more excited to get to heaven one day and see the Lord and everything He has created for me! Great book. I highly encourage anyone to read.
Excellent read - thought provoking, inspirational, hopeful and sobering.
Incredible read - so awesome
By John Nemo
My dad (who died of cancer when I was 17) had a NDE and I found it fascinating that what my dad described was almost verbatim to what others inside the book experience.
As a Christian this book gives me so much hope, joy and excitement I can’t put it into words.
It’s a fun, fascinating read and gripping - and I love too how Burke brings in people from all walks of life, all ages, nationalities, religions, etc., and shows that they all have common elements of their NDE experiences.
Also love how it proves and ties into what the Bible says Heaven is like.
All in all one of the most important and profund books I’ve read in my life as a Christian.
Get it and devour it - it is water for your thirsty soul! :)
A must read!!!

This book can help you get a better idea of what heaven is like. It has been a pleasure to read. I have purchased 2 books since recently buying my first ipad, "The Case For Jesus" written by Brant Pitre & Robert Barron and "Imagine Heaven". Both have been outstanding. I think both of these books can be helpful to thoughs willing to let Christ into there heart.
I've always been interested in the subject of Ned's and found this book to be the most information and closet to the bible. I am in my 80's and this has given me hope for a wonderful future.

I've had an interest in near death experiences for a long time. Every time I would start reading a book or an article on the subject I became frustrated because they were so filled with "New Age" or "Eastern Religious" junk that I would quit reading. This is the only book I've read that looks at so many experiences from all over the world and looks at them from a Biblical view. How refreshing it has been. I would highly recommend this book because it will not only excite your spirit for things to come but build your faith that Jesus truly did go to prepare a place for you .... And what a place it is!
