The Happiness of Heaven By a father of the Society of Jesus
 Picture
Publisher: John Murphy & Co., 1871 Baltimore, MD.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 16mo - over 5 - 6" tall This book bears the imprimatur of the Catholic Church. "..What sublime descriptions do not the Holy Scriptures give us of the blessed City of God! Her walls are built of jasper-stone; but the City itself is of pure and shining gold, like to clear crystal glass. And the foundations of the City are adorned with all manner of precious stones. Her gates are pearls. The very streets are transparent as glass. This glorious City of God has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in her; for the glory of God is her light.. It has been the aim of the author of the following pages to discover the meaning concealed under those enticing figures. In his exposition of 'The Happiness of Heaven' he has endeavored to follow the teachings of the most approved theologians of the Church. Moreover, mindful that our Diving Model spoke of the Kingdom of Heaven in parables, he has laid aside, as far as possible, the technical language of the schools, and has replaced it by illustrations, which are better adapted to the capacity of all.." 372 pages.

Garrett, Augusta Browne  
The Precious Stones of the Heavenly Foundations, With Illustrative Selections in Prose and Verse
 Picture
Publisher: Sheldon & Company, 1859 New York.
Book. Book condition: Fair. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall "As an heir, pressing earnestly onward to take possession of his newly-acquired desmesne in a far off country, not only frequently consults his chart in order to ascertain the safer and more expeditious way thither, but also assiduously seeks to inform himself concerning the estate itself, of its situation, its advantages, its comforts, and its beauties; - so, a religious inquiry into the momentous future whither we are all journeyers, is the most rational of all pursuits, and always beneficial; for, the more the mind is abstracted from earthly, and fixed on divine things, the better will it be fitted for entering the Inheritance of the Saints in Light. God is a God of Beauty, of Grandeur, and of Order..The subject of the ensuing pages - a series of reflections on some of the figurative external beauties of the Heavenly City, is, it is believed, in its views and treatment, original. There are brief dissertations on the twelve precious stones which, engraven with the names of the Holy Apostles, garnish the foundations of Heaven, with the significations which seem most appropriate to each, and relative texts of Scripture. Associated with every stone are a few precious gems of human thought in lingual setting, genero9usly similar in character. They consist of both prose and poetry, and with two or three exceptions, have exclusive reference to the future life. Some of them are extracts from eminent authors, but a majority are beautiful waifs which have been gathered while floating by on the current. With these are interspersed a few original poems and reflections.." 328 pages + 4-page list of books published by Sheldon & Company. Book is in FAIR condition; cover missing over spine; binding still good; text pages clean and complete. No dust jacket.

Thomas, Harvey M.  
Heaven's Open Door, or, A Plain Path to Heaven
 Picture
Publisher: Messengers of Hope, Inc., 1996 Cambridge, MD.
ISBN: 1886787026 Book. Book condition: Near Fine. Near Fine. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "That there exists a place called heaven there can be nor room for doubt. There are too many facts on earth that sweep away the vagueness. To mention just a few, consider the numerous cases on record in which those who were near death have seen loved ones or friends who had long since passed on. The very longing of the soul for life, and its dread of death, speaks powerfully, that there must be something infinitely better than anything this death-dealing world can ever provide. The beauty of our earth's springtime resurrection from its winter of cold chilling deadness, cannot fail to foreshadow for us a new life in a new world. And in addition to all the above, we are witnesses to the historical fact that the coming of Jesus Christ to our earth, wrought in it a mighty change. He not only told us He came from heaven, but He actually opened up the way by which each of us could become qualified citizens of that beautiful country. This book attempts to delve a little deeper into that splendid heavenly heritage that awaits each believing member of the human family." Messengers of Hope is a Christian publisher located in Cambridge, Maryland. xvi + 195 pages. Book is in NEAR FINE (almost new) condition. Dust jacket is in VERY GOOD to NEAR FINE condition.
