"Who's Got A Ticket?
Remember those ticket machines you see at bakeries and ice cream shops? The sign that says TAKE A NUMBER, and when you come in, you grab that little ticket and stand around, trying to find something to do, until the clerk calls out your number. You hand the guy your ticket, give him your order, and then all in a rush you're done and out of there.
Well, the moment you were born, you grabbed a ticket. And no matter how you spend your time kicking around in this world, finding something to do, at some point you're gonna have to give up that ticket. You're done, and you're out of here.
Just like that.
You see, it doesn't matter if you're a hero to your grandson. It doesn't matter if you're a boy who beat cancer as a baby, a grandmother who cooked unbelievable lasagna, or even the famous golden boy of the political world. You are going to die. And you don't know when.
As they say in the movies, "Nobody gets out of here alive." (pg 4-5)
The question is, what do you believe happens after you die? Is there a heaven and a hell? Is there life after death? Is there a God? Are these second chances after we die? Do we have a soul, and what does it look like? What qualifies a person to get into a heaven? What does Jesus have to do with it all?
In his latest book, Frank Santora, fills readers in with the most amazing analogies that you can't help but understand the meaning to everything he discusses in After You Die. He begins the book with analyzing if there is life after death and what happens to our bodies when we die. Unlike most people believe, humans are not machines. We can not simply be restarted like a car when we stop running. No amount of food, water and oxygen, the three vital things all humans need to survive will help once we are dead. So what really happens?
As close to end time events as I believe we are, this book is a compelling read to anyone who wants to know what happens when we stop breathing. Contrary to popular opinion we only have two choices of where we end up when we die, heaven or hell. There is no in between place, and hell is not where you will spend time partying it up with all your friends. No one should ever want to wind up there. So what can you do to make sure you don't? You will have to pick up a copy of this book to find out more, but a great place to start is in church asking Jesus Christ into your life as your personal Savior, then you will want to make sure you spend your time learning more about God, heaven and where you will be spending an eternity, cause it's going to be amazing for those of us that will be going. Do you know where you will be going after this life ends? I would encourage you to not wait if you don't know. You're ticket may be up before you know it!
I received After You Die by Frank Santora compliments of Howard Books, a division of Harper Collins Publishers for my honest review and have to say this is one of the best books that explains things in such a great way, everyone can understand. It even contains some points that atheists will often argue against such as Big Bang versus Intelligent Design. Like I stated earlier, the stories and analogies that Frank Santora uses makes this a useful tool that anyone can relate to no matter how young or old you are. I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars and think that every single person should pick up a copy of this book, especially those that wonder what happens after we die! It's a compelling look into our futures!
