Publisher's Summary

Trudy Harris began her career with Hospice in 1981, eventually becoming the president of the Hospice Foundation for Caring. This collection of more than 40 true stories of Harris's patients offers readers an incredible glimpse at what lies beyond and what the living can learn from the dying. Her patients have described to her visions of angels and loved ones who have gone on before, the sounds of ethereal music, colors that did not exist on earth. She has been with hundreds of patients as they took their last breaths and knows the kinds of questions that both the dying and the loved ones they are leaving behind ask.

  • What do you say to a loved one who is dying?
  • What happens when we die?
  • How can you make a dying friend feel safe?
  • Does a dying person really see angels, hear music, or see friends and family members who have already died?

Tender, heartbreaking, and eye-opening, Glimpses of Heaven offers a window into the world beyond and life after death.

truly an inspiration

Any additional comments?

This compilation of true stories tells and shows, with great clarity, what people saw as they were dying. This unique collection of stories range from young to old. Each story has a unique angle, overflows with compassion and is truly an inspiration.

Connie Wetzel’s narration was excellent. This book is perfect for an audiobook, because it has wonderful places to stop and absorb what you’ve just listened to-then start again when you are ready.

Some of the reviews have complained that this book wasn’t biblical enough-it doesn’t matter if it is or not. The message is loving and doesn’t need to be biblical. It teaches the listener that our amazing God meets us at the level we’re comfortable with and goes from there. People interested in near-death experiences will find this book a delight

Peace in the understanding

If you could sum up Glimpses of Heaven in three words, what would they be?

I enjoyed this book. Nice to hear the account people gave at the end.

Narration is odd

This book is a reverent/ sad book and the tone of the narrators voice is just so odd and makes me feel weird listening to it. I have to read it in paperback because the narrators tone of joyfulness almost when talking about terminally ill people is making the book so weird !! The book itself is amazing, please consider a new narrator !

An intriguing account of people preparing for and passing from this life

The author includes a variety of experiences working in a hospice environment.

These stories provide a compelling body of evidence that there is life after death and the God loves his children. This life is our Father's schoolhouse and he has a plan for each of us.

Many people question why a loving God and Father would allow people to suffer and experience terrible loss and pain. But God granted us agency and these life experiences will bring us the compassion that God's plan is to teaches us.

To Much Religious Reference

This book assumes that everyone believes the same things, for the most part. Too much for my taste. A lot of similar circumstances with family and people. I'm sorry but it sounds made up.

Not worth listening to ...

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

badly written ,...badly edited...no real substance

Would you ever listen to anything by Trudy Harris again?

No

How did the narrator detract from the book?

ultimately this story is about how to find Jesus....its religious stuff..it should have been spiritual....

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

dissapoitment
