The Map of Heaven – Launch Day Message

Today is the day!  October 7 is here, and THE MAP OF HEAVEN is on bookshelves and shipping out from major retailers in the US and UK.
 
Eben kicked off the MAP OF HEAVEN book tour with interviews on Fox & Friends and Kilmeade & Friends, and is at the Open Center in New York City for a presentation, Q&A, and signing.  His comments follow.

My second book, The Map of HeavenHow Science, Religion, and Ordinary People are Proving the Afterlife, is coming out today, October 7. 
I’m so excited to share it with you.  After all, it was inspired by the stories entrusted to me and my collaborator, Ptolemy Tompkins, by friends, strangers, sages–and readers.

It’s a book that uses modern stories, science, and ancient wisdom to explore the truths that love and the eternal soul are vital and death is not final.
The first few days of a book’s life are essential to its success.

If you follow me on facebook or twitter, you know about “Team Eben.” It’s a group of family and friends who contribute to my website, help me keep in touch with readers, and spread the word.

Today, I ask you to join Team Eben.

Help us spread the word about The Map of HeavenIf you have 2 minutes, you can help us reach out and show people the truth: you are loved, you are not alone, and there is more to heaven and earth than you have dreamed.

Beginning today, you can post a review on Amazon. Amazon visitors often use other users’ reviews to decide whether to order a book.

Your review–just a line or two long–will really help. Click here to get to the Amazon page (here for Amazon UK), and then scroll down to the “Create your own review” button, as in the image above.

Last, if you haven’t already, read my essay in this week’s TIME Magazine (link), “Science Is Being Forced To Take the Afterlife Seriously.” It’s an adaptation of material from the book, and I hope you enjoy it.

    Please forgive me if this is a bit “off-topic,” but this is as good a place as any: I was unable to get through on your appearance on Coast to Coast AM this morning (too many calls ahead of me), so I’ll “try again,” if that would be alright:

    1) What (if anything) did anyone in heaven tell you about Jesus, when you visited? [E.g., physical appearance, or: did angels/people *worship* Jesus, etc.? I ask because we’re taught to ‘Test the Spirits’ in theology and Bible school (I John 4:1-3) ad James 2:19. The fallen angels believe, but they don’t confess openly, for fear of reprisal.]

    2) I’m sure you saw babies in heaven, but I’d like to know, how do babies achieve salvation? (I ask this because my faith teaches me that people need ‘faith,’ something impossible for babies; they will be in heaven for the time being, but when/where/how will infants who died in infancy get a chance to exercise Free Will and accept/reject God like the angels -one-third of whom fell, or humans, only some of whom will accept/have faith in God?)

    3) If you saw, say, Gabriel, Michael, or some other angel, what’d they look like?

    Thank you,
