Have you read this book? I highly recommend it. It gives a different view of heaven, not the one as we think it is, but rather as a place where you will find your truths, your reason for existence, and your connection to everyone. Its such a touching book, charming in its own way.

I truly enjoy Mitch Albom's novels, and this one was no exception. I found that the way he interwove the stories of other's lives into one man's journey to heaven was seemless and masterful. Yes, I agree that it was a very touching book. And, Albom speaks to the interconnectedness of lives. That people's lives, no matter how fleeting of an encounter, are deeply intertwined with ours. That one event can affect the decisions we make for the rest of our lives. That we all have something to discover here on earth. And, that all unfinished business will have a conclusion one day.

I personally haven't read it yet but I watched it on Hallmark Channel. And I should say it was indeed a nice story. If I'm not mistaken, that’s Mitch Alboms’ book right? I think when I watched it; it was back to back with Tuesdays with Morrie- another wonderful book by the same author. I don’t know where he gets his inspiration from or how he comes up with very dramatic and touching stories such as that. He’s one of my most favorite authors. I guess being sensitive, I really have a soft spot for touchy feely, mushy, cheesy books or films. =)

I have not read that book. I read the Holy Bible - the all-time best seller. I am a Christian, a child of God, baptized into Christ on October 1, 1989 and I belong to the Church of Christ founded and headed by Christ as shown in Acts Chapter 2. I am given the gift of knowledge and understanding Bible Greek and I translate the Word of God from Greek to English PLAINLY - Greek word into its English equivalent with additional words for grammar purposes written in italics so that readers may delete them when they so desire. I have already published GENESIS, EXODUS, LEVITICUS (Greek-English), THE WILL New Testament (Greek to English), ELEMENTS of SALVATION, The Right Way, GOD, ORIGIN, TRANSFER into PERFECTION, GREEK-ENGLISH (Grammar & Vocabulary), WORDS in THE WILL New Testament, and others shown at http://www.lulu.com/arseniajoaquin I have seen the versions being circulated worldwide and they are generally admitted to be 80% NOT translations. My translations are 99.99% translations and I see the truth, beauty, and sweetness of the Word of God. I hope these books could also help people understand the Word of God and be saved. I hope that you include some of these in your reading.

The book that the poster recommended was fiction. Although I can understand your need to spread the word about the Bible, its not the topic of the discussion.
