A recent Newsweek poll reports that 76 percent of Americans believe in heaven. Yet even avid believers have difficulty conjuring up more than vague images of halos, harps, and wispy angels in flowing robes. Anthony DeStefano knew there had to be a more complete, meaningful, and comforting vision of what heaven is like, and A Travel Guide to Heaven is the entertaining and enlightening result.



Have you thought about Heaven lately? Wonder what it’s like? How you can get there? A Travel Guide to Heaven explains it all. And while it may be your final destination, it will be the best trip you ever took. Heaven, it turns out, really is Heaven!” - Regis Philbin

Angels All Around Us (paperback)

3267

In Angels All Around Us (previously titled The Invisible World in hardcover), the international bestselling author of A Travel Guide to Heaven and Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To explains the awesome and mysterious reality of the spiritual dimension that surrounds and permeates our very existence. All aspects of the spiritual realm are discussed, including the existence of angels and demons, the whereabouts of loved ones who have passed, the gift of grace, heaven, hell, and even the presence and activity of God in our lives.




Reading Angels All Around Us is like spending time with a best friend who is able to take the intricacies of faith and break them down into easy lessons anyone can understand. - Maura Poston Zagrans, bestselling author of Miracles Every Day

The increasing secularization of society has led, in the words of Pope Benedict XVI, to a sort of ‘eclipse of the sense of God.’ Anthony DeStefano’s book, Angels All Around Us, is a welcome attempt to remind Christians of truths which, though mentioned explicitly in the Gospel and belonging to the deposit of faith, in recent decades have been overshadowed. His latest book is a much-needed effort to utilize modern methods of communication to spread the Gospel message and also to work toward a greater Christian unity. - Archbishop Rino Fisichella, President, Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, Vatican City, Rome

Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To (paperback)

2182

Soft Cover

By Anthony Destefano


From Publishers Weekly: "Books on prayer are legion, most often focusing on why we should pray and how to do it correctly. DeStefano 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."

“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

Over the centuries, Our Lady has visited the people of Earth many times. On each of these occasions she has dressed very differently.

By reading this book, children will not only learn about the Mother of God, but will also learn the main purpose of her life—to love and serve her son, Jesus Christ, and to lead others to do the same.

DeStefano finds a fresh take on the events that lead to Easter. Using a small scriptural reference to the unridden donkey that Jesus rides in triumph into Jerusalem, DeStefano imagines a transformative relationship between a small, weak donkey and a figure who gives him strength and asks him to have faith. The text’s rhymes (“No matter how much he tried or he cried/ This was a donkey no one could ride”) make for easy read-aloud. Cowdrey’s illustrations focus on the donkey, conveying the development from initial lethargy to the donkey’s energetic and confident strength. It’s a welcome change from Easter chicks and bunnies. Ages 5–up. - Publishers Weekly

Roxy the Ritzy Camel
