Book Review: Heaven and Hell



Loved "Heaven and Hell" by Kenneth Zeigler!

Overview: Heaven and Hell takes you on a journey through Heaven and Hell, as viewed through the eyes of Chris and Serena Davis, who come to experience their reality first hand. Through God s mercy, those who dwell in Heaven, have no recollection of loved ones in Hell. At least, most don t. Yet, in the most beautiful place in the universe, one man s troubling dreams lead him to realize that the love of his earth life has been condemned to Satan s realm. Now, with the help of a famous scientist from the past, Chris endeavors to pull off the ultimate prison break.


First off, several year ago, I got the third book in this series, Rise of the Beast, for free, so I read it. I could NOT put it down. It was like the Bible end times were coming alive on the pages! I’ve been meaning to read the whole series ever since then. So, I ordered the first and second book from Abe’s Books and I just finished the first one. Also, I had facebook’d Mr. Ziegler on his author page to tell him how much I enjoyed “Rise of the Beast” and he responded back – how awesome is that?!

Full Title: Heaven and Hell: The Journey of Chris and Serena Davis (Tears of Heaven Series)

Dawn’s Recommendation: 5 of 5 Stars

What I liked:
* Opening grabbed my attention with the characters dying in a car wreck.
* Riveting story and world-building to include vivid details of heaven and hell. Author uses his love of science to create believable worlds and situations.
* You can tell that the author is well versed on the Bible and he creates his fiction to sync with what the Bible says. Fantastic job!
* Unexpected and exciting ending! Can’t wait to read Book Two, "The War in Heaven".

What I didn’t like:
* A few misspellings jumped out at me, but not enough to take away from the great story.
* Would like to care a little more about the main characters, Chris and Serena, but even so, the story is strong enough to carry the book!

Do you like Christian fiction?  If so, what kind do you read?

  1. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd be interested in a collaboration.
    My blog covers a lot of interesting and helpful posts just like yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. And also, I think you'll love my recent blog post titled How To Live The Good Life And Have No Regrets When You’re Old

    I'm hoping to hear from you too and quickly, you've got a great blog here.

    Daniel.

  2. This looks like a fantastic read! If you want to read an excellent book about a real near death experience you should check out "Held By The Hand Of God: Why Am I Alive" by Joe Laws http://heldbythehandofgod.com/. It points out that evil truly exists, but that when good vs. evil, good will always win.
