AfterLife: There Will Be Trouble by E. Vince presents Christianity as a source of comfort, hope, and peace in the midst of tribulations. As the theme "The redemption of God in our hearts and minds" implies, it depicts God as a loving father who gave everyone free will and is welcoming to everyone regardless of their pasts and life decisions. It suggests what life after death could look like—the involvement of God in our lives even when we are unaware.

Karen, a dying woman with a congenital heart disorder, tries to bring her family together in the short time she has. A perpetually angry and frustrated husband and a rebellious teenage daughter are sure to make her efforts fruitless. With only her young son willing to openly share in her pain, she dies with regrets and worry. The other side appeared to be the opposite of everything she's ever had, offering so much joy, comfort, and new knowledge she found exciting. But even the prospect of an exciting spiritual journey couldn't keep her mind away from worrying about the family she left behind. This brought about the reason for a rescue mission with the help of an angel and a new family she found in the afterlife. Get a copy of this book to find out more.

I love that this book brings hope to people who hold Christianity and God close to their hearts. It sheds light on values, the ripple effect of decisions, the imperfections of human nature, darkness and how undeserving we are on earth, the unconditional love of God, and the purpose of free will. It shows how differently people can react to the same situation. It also brings a fresh perspective to the view of the afterlife and the effect of the intensity of negative human emotions.

I found the concept of "Paradise" interesting, even more so for its details and sophistication. How the dead appear as infants spiritually until they attain spiritual growth, the Belush'ya school of young souls being a catalyst, the assignment of buddies, an angel as a guardian, the reunion of families, tribal and angelic family positions—all of this offers a new view to the several existing ones of what exists after death. Demons, depicted as shadows, and their growth, fueled by how much power we give them, further prove that negative energy grows only when we feed it. I also loved the thoughtful maps and drawings that were added to the book.

As much as this book would give hope to the right audience, it might evoke arguments among critics and people of conflicting beliefs. I'd recommend this book to religious people who are going through dark times, whose faith is dwindling, and who doubt the presence of God in their lives. It would also be a good read for people who seek a fresh perspective on the issue of the afterlife. There were no errors in this book, and I'll rate it a 5 out of 5 stars because I disliked nothing about it.

This is just another confirmation that no one knows what will happen after death No one ha ever been there and come back. I am willing to appreciate the comfort that this depiction hold. Thanks!
