of Heaven by Canadian Science
Fiction novelist Mark A. Carter
is a tear jerker and
a page turner telling the
story of a Seraph who loves
Christ, commits a crime for
love during the Crucifixion,
and is punished for two thousand
years. It is about a writer fighting to recover from a chronic
illness who is tempted by the Devil,
and ends up writing a book that influences future generations.
And it is about the end of the world, as we know it, and the
new world that lies ahead. It is about the evolution of humankind
from a corporeal to an
ethereal path. It is about miracles. It is about belief.
Mister Carter's lavish romance
takes us from the Crucifixion,
to the present, and from the near future to a future
millions of years from now, and our destiny.
"I based the book on a short
story that I wrote called, 'The Promise.'
It was about a writer, tempted and tortured by the
Devil, who promised God
that he would write a book for him if
God helped him recover from a chronic illness. When the
story expanded to a novella, I thought of calling it
Dialogues with the Devil because
Lucifer was so prominent in the story. For the fun of
it, keep track of the Devil's
various names in the book.
When the story expanded to the
size of a novel, and then an epic, I renamed it
Hephzibah of Heaven because
Sheba was the glue that held the
three stories together."
of Heaven will break your heart and make it anew.
And if your faith has been sleeping, it will reawaken. You will
believe. If you are an avid reader of romances, you need to read
this high romance.
