Can Christians Trust Talesfrom Heaven? Yes!
Millions have read the testimonies of those who have been to heaven and returned. But what do these stories mean for Christians? How do they fit with what the Bible teaches? What do they say about who goes to heaven? Debate has raged throughout the church about whether we should trust these testimonies, since they don't always align with what we think the Bible teaches. Reverend John Price, a pastor who has been a pioneer in integrating near-death accounts into ministry, surveys the Bible and Christian doctrines to discover that these firsthand accounts of encounters with God are fully compatible with Christian spirituality.
Price began his ministry not believing in heaven. In Revealing Heaven, after hearing over two hundred accounts of near-death experiences, Price narrates the stories of those who helped change his mind and now makes a case not only for why Christians can trust near-death accounts but for why we should treat these amazing stories as precious gifts from God.
“John W. Price has written a marvelous book, Revealing Heaven, that uses the lessons brought back by many ‘near-death soul journeyers to help steer the Christian viewpoint into alignment with the knowing that so many share today: we are so much more than our physical bodies.” Eben Alexander, M.D., author of the #1 < i=""> New York Times <> bestseller < i=""> Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife <>
“A must read for anyone interested in heaven or near-death experiences, Revealing Heaven is a powerful and exceptionally well-written book. The Reverend John Price has heard over 100 people narrate their near-death experiences and his insights are both informative and profoundly inspirational.” Jeffrey Long, MD, author of the < i=""> New York Times <> bestselling < i=""> Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences <>
“A compelling book.” Guideposts
“This is a well written book taking the form of stories more than a theological treatise. It is a small book but one I suspect will give encouragement and hope to many who read it.” Provocative Christian Living blog

In Revealing Heaven, Reverend John W. Price makes the case for how near-death experiences can be gifts from God and are fully compatible with Christian spirituality and the Bible. As a pastor open to near-death experiences, he has heard more than 200 personal accounts of this phenomena.
Todd Burpo's bestelling book Heaven Is for Real, the story of a young childs near-death experience, has validated the existence of heaven and of God for many. Yet there are Christians who remain uncomfortable with the idea of near-death experiences; they wonder if these events are in line with the Bible and Christian teaching.
In Revealing Heaven: The Christian Case for Near-Death Experiences, Reverend Price shares compelling testimonies that prove that Christians can not only trust near-death experiences as valid and consistent with Biblical teaching, but he demonstrates how they can help us understand death, grief, and what happens after this life is over, and provides ample reasons for us to be open to these amazing stories and to hope for what weve always dreamed about.
