"Heaven is a pleasure palace, a fairyland, a nature preserve, a ?city, shining on a hill,' a great big family reunion, and a never-ending vacation, all rolled into one. It's the ultimate adventure for travelers of all ages, and a place of supreme happiness for the entire human race. And the best news is that after we finish our lives here, we can all go there — if we choose." — A Travel Guide to Heaven
"Books on prayer are legion, most often focusing on why we should pray and how to do it correctly. DeStefano, author of A Travel Guide to Heaven, offers readers a refreshing look at this evergreen topic by focusing on 10 prayers God 'always' answers. 'Why don't people take advantage of prayers that work? One big reason is that they are so caught up in prayers that don't always work,' says DeStefano. He offers readers this guarantee: 'before you even get to the last page of this book, your life will begin to change before your eyes.' Prayers include 'God, show me that you exist,' 'God, forgive me,' 'God, give me courage' and 'God, lead me to my destiny.' DeStefano uses the Christian Bible as the foundation for his work, not offering quick fixes but instead expounding on the need for true repentance, right motives and genuine commitment. More conservative camps will most likely cluck at what they see as DeStefano's lack of firmness about salvation as a prerequisite to both heard and answered prayer, but a careful reading shows that the author understands faith, not selfishness, is the foundation for these prayers. His cheerful style and heartfelt faith make this an optimistic look at a timeless subject."

"Do we really need another book on prayer? We certainly need this one! Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To is remarkably different and refreshingly direct. It takes the reader straight to the heart of the issue of answered prayer and leaves him or her there wanting more—of God, of course. This book will go on my shelf beside the great classics on prayer."

"Anthony DeStefano has once again drawn his readers into the mystery of God's love and invited us to reflect more deeply on our relationship with Him. In a simple yet profound way, Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To offers insights, and indeed a practical wisdom, that will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled with personal prayer. I recommend this book to any and all who are searching for a fresh perspective on the meaning and value of a life of prayer, and, ultimately, for a more fulsome encounter with the Living God."
Cardinal Renato Raffaele Martino
President, Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace
"Forget angels playing harps. In this fascinating, comforting book, (A Travel Guide to Heaven) DeStefano takes the reader on a tour of heaven, painting it as a dynamic place of unlimited joy, and using Scripture and dramatic imagination to fill in details about the afterlife. 'God doesn't throw away the good things he creates,' he writes, an idea which is the basis of many of his speculations about heaven. Heaven is a tangible place, believes DeStefano, and at least part of it will be a transformed new earth. People will have their own recognizable bodies, only perfected. DeStefano tackles tough questions about heaven, including the role of angels, the measurement of time, marriages and whether pets will be there ('Of course!'). Fears of boredom are dispelled with his depictions of possible activities ('How about a tour of the Andromeda galaxy?') and creative work ('Books will be written and read, public structures will be built and utilized'). However, he writes that nothing will compare with the thrill of meeting God, the source of true happiness. DeStefano persuasively argues that the idea of heaven is a positive force on earth, since 'faith in God and heaven makes you more interested in what you do in this life—not less.' He is neither an academic nor a professional theologian, which gives the book its delightfully conversational tone and frees him to conjecture without restraint. Many readers will find DeStefano's solid Christian framework reassuring and his exciting picture of heaven compelling."
