Campus Ministry and The Paul E. McKeever Chair in Moral Theology
present a lecture by
author of A Travel Guide to Heaven
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 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. Combining the clarity and logic of C.S. Lewis
with a terrific sense of fun and adventure, DeStefano creates a
brilliant, reassuring portrait of heaven, which has intrigued and
puzzled humankind throughout history.
Anthony DeStefano has received many prestigious awards from
religious organizations throughout the world for his efforts to
advance Christian beliefs in modern culture. These include an
honorary doctorate from the National Clergy Council and the
Methodist Episcopal Church's Joint Academic Commission, as well as
the "Defender of Israel" medal from the Jerusalem Center for Peace
Studies conferred on him in 2003.
