Book Review: Heaven is in Your Future

HEAVEN IS IN YOUR FUTURE: The gift you cannot refuseHEAVEN IS IN YOUR FUTURE: The gift you cannot refuse by David Arthur DuRocher
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The conclusion of the book offered the theories proposed in the book as an alternative to the traditional Christian theory of salvation. I’m glad that was clarified, because this is definitely quite a different interpretation of a traditional Biblical view of souls, salvation and the Cross. DuRocher offers his personal revelation that in fact reincarnation is consistent with Christianity, and Christians are only here to aid others on the easy passage to heaven rather than be burned into heaven by fire. We all make it, however, as evidenced by the title. There is no hell in store for any soul, only the Kingdom of Heaven.

While I appreciated that multiple translations were cited and stated in the text, the reading became a little redundant because of the verses written several times each. I think that it would have been simpler to cite what was changed in each translation rather than rewrite them. In addition I thought it was a little disingenuous for DuRocher to consistently say things like “it is clear that the only interpretation is….” when it obviously was not, given that his interpretation was admittedly a break from the norm. I also was frustrated personally, as a Christian, as I did not buy his explanations at all. Reincarnation and all roads leading to heaven is a seductive thought, and it was clear that DuRocher was applying it where he wanted to see it. I did not see him address verses like Hebrews 9:27, which clearly states “All people are destined to die once, and then the judgement.” I would also be curious how he responds to Proverbs 30:6, which cautions about adding or detracting from God’s word, as several times he essentially says, “what Jesus meant to say was….” In short, if you are looking for what you want to hear, this is for you. If you want to hear what God has to say, read the Bible.
