In this evangelistic book, John Bolin follows a fiction-meets-nonfiction approach to lead readers to a surprising encounter with Jesus—as they ponder the reality of heaven and how to get there.
The Two Doors of Heaven begins with an extended story of Jack, a guynext- door kind of person who is killed in a freak accident while sitting at a coffee shop. He awakes in the afterlife and is taken on a journey toward his moment of judgment before God. Along the way he meets several people who help him unravel life’s meaning.
The second part of the book is like a personal conversation with the author. Bolin anticipates the questions and reflections readers have and helps them explore the real issues faced in regard to the two doors of heaven.
“Every one of us has a reason— for what we do, for where we end up…”
Journey with a man named Jack to the other side of eternity. After dying in a freak accident, he enters the afterlife with four others. In this new, hyper-real existence, they each see a vivid replay of their lives, complete with answers to haunting questions. Then comes the startling truth about what happens next.
Two doors appear. One leads up. The other…down. Which will it be?
Jack’s inevitable destiny echoes the choices he made on earth. What if you could control where you’re headed?
Maybe you can. Find out what the two doors of heaven reveal for you…
Story Behind the Book
“In The Two Doors of Heaven, I want to lead non-Christians down the pathway toward a genuine encounter with Jesus. I want to catch their attention, then capture their hearts. My sense is that people today are increasingly haunted by questions about the life after this one. Vast numbers of them are not suppressing the issue of what eternity will mean for them personally, but are actively exploring it (as evidenced by the sales of books like The Five People You Meet in Heaven ). They sense that what they do and think and believe today has a definite connection with getting into heaven—but they’re by no means clear about it.”

The Two Doors of Heaven
Chapter OneLunch Break
Jack Gates should have known something was about to happen. His morning had felt so strange. Something about it seemed different, almost distant, like scenes played in slow motion.
Anxious to get his blood moving again, he shifted uneasily in the cheap swivel chair and glanced around the hotel conference room-a room that was feeling smaller by the minute. Is everyone here as zoned out as I am? He studied a few of the forty or so faces lit by the big-screen video in front of them. Amazingly, they were still paying attention, and some were even scribbling notes. Incredible, Jack thought.
He had been sitting for hours at the seminar on professional and personal fulfillment. Twisting his wrist toward the light of the screen, he glanced at his watch, a Tag Heuer rip-off. 11:48. Twelve minutes till lunch. An eternity.
He stared again at the PowerPoint statements on the screen, leaned back, exhaled, and slipped both hands in his pants pockets. In one of them, he felt a piece of paper. He pulled it out-for the third or fourth time this morning-and discreetly set it beside his yellow pad on the table in front of him. Folded, it looked like a creased twenty-dollar bill. But when you opened it, you discovered it was some sort of religious tract-a trick designed to make you pick it up.
It had worked well enough on him. Hurrying to the seminar room this morning, Jack had turned a corner and seen it lying on the hallway floor. Just as he reached down and grabbed it, he heard others approaching behind him, and he was too embarrassed to drop it after seeing what it...
