About the Author

Peter Baldwin Panagore earned his BA in English from the University of Massachusetts and a M.Div from Yale University. He was ordained in the United Church of Christ and served churches in suburban Connecticut and Maine. He is the writer, on-air talent and host of a daily two-minute broadcast on 2 NBC stations in Maine, reaching an audience of 350,000 a week. He is the fifth minister of First Radio Parish Church of America (founded in 1926).


"United Church of Christ minister Panagore offers a harrowing account of a near-death experience when he was a young man in 1980 on an ice-climbing adventure in Alberta, Canada. Along with a more experienced climber, Panagore set out on a trip that took him to Lower Weeping Wall, where the two mountaineers found themselves trapped as they descended the face of the frigid mountain wall. After their rope became snagged and they were overcome by hypothermia, frostbite, and exhaustion, Panagore lost consciousness, his body shut down, and he nearly died. What happened on the other side of death changed Panagore's life, resulting in his pursuit of a master's degree focusing on systematic theology and Christian mysticism. Feelings of overwhelming love, forgiveness, and caring--but also of shouldering the burdens of others who he hurt during his lifetime on Earth--met him on the other side; he also encountered God. Readers who have a fascination with near-death experiences and mysticism will be drawn into Panagore's remembrances of dying on the side of that mountain and the unexplainable feelings he encountered, and may find comfort in his assurance that death is not to be feared.

"Heaven is hot right now--not in temperature, but in public interest. Everyone who longs to get a glimpse of the afterlife will be grateful for this gripping first-person account by Peter Panagore, who dies on a cold mountainside after a heart-pounding ice climb in the Canadian wilderness. There he meets the God who made him and knows him--the God who is loving, all-powerful and real. This book will give hope and confidence to all who wonder about what lies beyond our earthly existence." --Henry G. Brinton, senior pastor of Fairfax Presbyterian Church in Virginia and author of The Welcoming Congregation: Roots and Fruits of Christian Hospitality--Reviews
"Heaven is Beautiful is a profound, true story offering amazing proof that there is more. This book and its illuminating truth pushed my restart button!
