In Heaven Right Now: Prophet Chronicles, Melvin Abercrombie shares the truth about vampires and explores the contention that 90 percent of religions are wrong about what they teach their followers concerning what happens when they die. Abercrombie, a former Christian minister and founder of Broken Wing Ministry, has completed the initiation of the real vampire through Temple of the Vampire in California. In his third book, he presents an inquisitive examination of religion and vampires while sharing the realities of what it is like to have an immortal soul. Abercrombie dispels common myths and brings a new perspective as he teaches others that vampires are not afraid of the cross or the sun, that they do not drink blood, and that they do not transform into bats or wolves. Instead, vampires live in the temporary mortal flesh to feed, drink, and enjoy their five senses and live to teach the truth about reincarnation. We really are all in Heaven Right Now, and this informative exploration encourages you to shake off previously learned perceptions about death and accept the real truth.

The Final Chapter From Billy Graham While his earthly vision dims, the glory of heaven is illuminated as Billy Graham, the beloved evangelist, shares from his past, and his present, the reality of eternity. Although Billy Graham may no longer preach from the stadiums of the world, in this book you will sense his heart still beats strong with the resounding assurance that he will spend eternity with Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. In Where I Am, Mr. Graham invites and strongly encourages all of us to contemplate our eternal hope. When asked, “Where is Heaven?” Mr. Graham has wisely replied, “Heaven is where Jesus Christ is, and I’m going to Him soon.” The greatest promise ever given to the human race came from the lips of our Redeemer when Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me...I go to prepare a place for you...I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (John 14:1–3). Just after his ninety-fifth birthday, Mr. Graham proclaimed with resolve, “When I die, tell others that I’ve gone to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ—that’s where I am.” Flap Copy: As our nation and world travail in the midst of political, economic, and cultural uncertainties, we can find comfort in the hope that comes from the unchanging truth of God’s Word. Whether talking with a US president, a world leader, or the common man or being interviewed on network television, Billy Graham has always begun his answers with “The Bible says…” In Where I Am, Mr. Graham shares what the Bible has to say about eternity from all of its sixty-six books; messages of truth, warning, love, and the certainty of the future, all gleaned by a man who would like to be remembered solely as a preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Each short chapter examines the reality that each of us chooses where to spend life after death: Heaven or Hell. From the Old Testament writer who composed “Show me Your ways, O Lord” (Psalm 25:4) to the New Testament writer who penned the words of Jesus, “Whoever believes in [Me] should not perish” (John 3:16), there is hope for anyone who puts his or her faith and trust in the One who gives us the promise, “Where I am, there you may be also” (14:3).

If life is about the journey and not the destination, could it be that this is heaven —this physical life we are living here on Earth? What we experience in our daily lives often feels like anything but heaven. But what if we understood how powerful we are —that we are powerful enough to mold both our internal and our external reality? Anita Moorjani, the New York Times bestselling author of Dying to Be Me, is convinced we can do exactly that. The process, she explains, requires dismantling many cultural myths mistaken for indisputable truths. Beliefs such as "We get what we deserve," "Loving ourselves is selfish," and "Coincidences are just that —coincidences," are ingrained within us from birth, pervasive and influential, leading to generations of misguidance. Following her near-death experience, Moorjani began to embody truths she learned in the other realm, discovering that letting go of these outmoded myths allowed her to experience heaven not as a physical place but as a state of mind, right here and right now. In this examination of our common myths, she shares stories and examples from her own life, revealing the lies beneath the surface of what she was taught and absorbed. By freeing ourselves from these falsehoods, Moorjani asserts, we can leave fear, heartache, and self-imposed boundaries behind and instead live lives full of purpose and joy.
Once we have encountered the Lord Jesus, how do we keep growing in Christ? How do we let the Lord mold us and make us into missionary disciples capable of spreading the gospel?

John Riccardo helps us dive into the Scriptures so that we can apply them to our daily lives. In his inspiring and incisive way, Fr. Riccardo addresses the obstacles we all face in becoming mature disciples. How do we learn to forgive? How do we combat fear and understand suffering? How do we worship the Lord, love others as Christ loves us, and fully surrender our lives to God? If you've enjoyed Fr. Riccardo's gifts of teaching and preaching through his broadcasts and podcasts, this book is for you!
Dr. John A. Huffman, a leading figure in evangelical circles, says: “Dwight Carlson has courageously tackled some of the toughest questions about heaven/hell and who will and will not be saved…One cannot read this book and remain content to have easy answers to heavy, complex questions. Instead one is overwhelmed with God’s grace....Don’t read [Who’ll Be in Heaven and Who Won’t] unless you are willing to think, have previously unquestioned presuppositions challenged and to consider that perhaps when the veil of mystery is lifted you discover a God more demanding in his righteousness and more mercifully generous in the scope of his salvation than you have previously considered.” The author asserts that there is a significant body of crucial information about life after death that is not being communicated to the average person on the street. Apropos is John Sanders’s statement: “I have found that many laypeople have hopes for the unevangelized but do not know how to articulate and defend such hopes. Within evangelicalism, the wider hope is more popular in the pews than in the pulpits.” In fact, it has been suggested that “evangelical leaders have managed to keep a tight lid on this volatile topic.”[i] [i] John Sanders, No Other Name: An Investigation into the Destiny of the Unevangelized (Eugene, OR: Wipf and Stock, 2001), 23, 20.
