Do animals go to heaven? Are they too important in the lives of today's Christians or not important enough? Ask four different pastors and you're likely to get four different answers, (i.e. "Yes," "No," "I don't know," "We can't be sure.") With Christian parents in mind, Cold Paws, Warm Heart tackles these questions from a Biblical standpoint. Twenty-nine books of the KJV Bible and over two-hundred and fifty verses later, Cold Paws, Warm Heart gives simple direct answers to the questions, "How does God feel about animals?" "How are we supposed to treat them?" and "Do animals go to heaven?" The answers given are illustrated with stories from the Bible, fascinating interviews and stories from several knowledgeable persons, and the author's own personal experiences with animals. Cold Paws, Warm Heart makes it easy for Christian parents to answer their children's questions about animals and heaven with confidence. Debra DeBlock-Hayford was born in Tampa and has lived in Florida all her life. This is her first published work. The subject is one close to her heart, animals. The Hayfords have welcomed many animals into their lives. Whether short-term or long-term, each animal left its mark and a story to tell. Today, Debra resides in Land O'Lakes, Florida with her husband, John, and their teen-age daughter, Holland. Other members of the family include Suzette, a Standard Poodle, and cats, Grey Boy and Mr. Bingley.
