Forget angels playing harps. In this fascinating, comforting book, DeStefano takes the reader on a tour of heaven, painting it as a dynamic place of unlimited joy, and using Scripture and dramatic imagination to fill in details about the afterlife. &ldquo;God doesn&rsquo;t throw away the good things he creates,&rdquo; he writes, an idea which is the basis of many of his speculations about heaven. Heaven is a tangible place, believes DeStefano, and at least part of it will be a transformed new earth. People will have their own recognizable bodies, only perfected. DeStefano tackles tough questions about heaven, including the role of angels, the measurement of time, marriages and whether pets will be there (&ldquo;Of course!&rdquo;). Fears of boredom are dispelled with his depictions of possible activities (&ldquo;How about a tour of the Andromeda galaxy?&rdquo;) and creative work (&ldquo;Books will be written and read, public structures will be built and utilized&rdquo;). However, he writes that nothing will compare with the thrill of meeting God, the source of true happiness. DeStefano persuasively argues that the idea of heaven is a positive force on earth, since &ldquo;faith in God and heaven makes you more interested in what you do in this life&mdash;not less.&rdquo; He is neither an academic nor a professional theologian, which gives the book its delightfully conversational tone and frees him to conjecture without restraint. Many readers will find DeStefano&rsquo;s solid Christian framework reassuring and his exciting picture of heaven compelling. &nbsp; &ldquo;Here is an airy, whimsical tour of the great beyond with some very serious points of interest along the way. What a trip! I just hope I can find my boarding pass when my row is called!&rdquo; -- Raymond Arroyo, News Director, Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) &quot;Anthony DeStefano is not only amazingly lighthearted and engaging when he writes about heaven, but he is also paradoxically thought-provoking and even profound. Heaven is completely different from anything we can think of, and yet the Bible, Church Tradition and common sense tell us to remember where we are headed. Anyone who has the wisdom to meditate on eternal life will find this book a Godsend. A Travel Guide to Heaven is prayer-provoking as well as thought-provoking.&quot; -- Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel , CFR &ldquo;Cardinal Ratzinger has said that the greatest gap in post-conciliar theology is that of eschatology, that is, the branch of theology that deals with the afterlife. In point of fact, when was the last time you heard a homily about &ldquo;the four last things&rdquo;&mdash;death, judgment, heaven, hell. Anthony DeStefano has begun the conversation on such matters by writing a book on heaven for &ldquo;the person in the pew.&rdquo; Combining orthodox theology with speculation and good humor, the author dares us to think about our true home and does so in such a way that the reader should want to make the trip.&rdquo; -- Rev. Peter M. J. Stravinskas, Ph.D., S.T.D., Editor, The Catholic Answer &nbsp;
No matter how dedicated to Christ you are, familiarity can blunt your fervor and even make you less vigilant against sin. That&rsquo;s why you need this warm guide! It reveals what you must do in order to begin living your life with God truly at the center of everything you do. With these seventeen steps, you&rsquo;ll be able to prevent your love for God from being diminished by day-to-day pressures. The author, Fr. Leo J. Trese, helps you to integrate into your actions the truths you profess. He gives you solid ways to look squarely at the reality and love of God and to root out contrary attachments in your life, showing you how to improve your confessions, pray more fervently, and let the fact of God&rsquo;s love and the joys of Heaven inspire you to be holy. Refreshingly unlike many modern writers, Fr. Trese speaks bluntly of Hell and of the devastating magnitude of sin. But don&rsquo;t despair! He also discloses the remedies you can use to root out even the most entrenched sinful habits and attachments. Simple, profound, and insightful, this book is an effective and long-lasting antidote to the spiritual dry rot that infects the soul of even the most careful Catholics. Make your salvation a vivifying reality as Fr. Trese shows you: God&rsquo;s anger: what the inspired writers of Scripture mean when they use this phrase &mdash; and how you can avoid this anger What you must do if your confessions have become casual and thoughtless &ldquo;It&rsquo;s only a venial sin&rdquo;: why this is one of the saddest phrases you could ever speak God&rsquo;s judgment: how you can (and should) start getting ready now for this moment of divine truth Suffering from strong temptations? Three things you can do today to overcome them . ..and&nbsp;more to help you attain a truly soul-nourishing relationship with God! Seventeen Steps to Heaven: A Catholic Guide to Salvation Learn why heaven is worth living, working, &amp; suffering for! 17 steps to making God the true center of your life Do you truly belong to Christ?
