Summary
In this light-hearted tour of the afterlife, Albrecht Grealle takes aim at some hard-hitting questions: What is it like in heaven? What about hell? What happens to people who have suffered horribly in this life? How do we reconcile that suffering with the idea of an all-loving God? Is there sex in heaven? What about tea? During pauses in the tours, Gralle delves into his own struggles with faith, speaking directly to people who wonder how a modern, rathional person can believe in the absence of proof. The result is a thoughtful take on the meaning of our lives on earth that is grounded in the writings of Swedish scientist-turned-seer Emanuel Swedenborg. -- publisher description
