More on the book "Visits to Heaven: Are They Real?"

More than a few readers reached out to me this past weekend to say they were very interested in my story in Saturday’s Life section about the book “Visits to Heaven: Are They Real?”

The book, written by Edmond pastor and Bible prophecy expert Mark Hitchcock, was released Feb. 17.

The preacher read numerous books written by or about people who claim to have had near-death experiences that resulted in them visiting or glimpsing heaven.

Hitchcock said his book compares these “visits to heaven” with what Scripture.

So many people are curious about heaven (and hell for that matter) since death is a fact of life. Hitchcock says that curiosity is what has propelled some of the books he critiqued

to bestseller status.

Hitchcock said he will be speaking on the topics featured in his book on the next two Wednesdays at Faith Bible Church, where he is senior pastor.

The public is invited to attend his presentations at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 25, and Wednesday, March 4 at the church, 600 N Coltrane in Edmond.
