Synopsis by Jeremy Wheeler
An elusive spiritual landscape that has inspired countless works of art, intrigued scholars, influenced politics, swayed the course of nations, and determined how people throughout history have lived and died, "Heaven" is the subject of this documentary that originally aired on The History Channel. The opinions of prominent leaders and religious scholars offer compelling insight into the concept of Heaven and explore the theory that people who have not accepted Jesus as their personal lord and savior will not be permitted into the pearly gates. From the ancient Egyptians' concepts of the afterlife to the ideas put forth during the Renaissance and the unique visions of the Puritans, this video goes beyond the Bible to explore the concept of Heaven as seen from a variety of religious vantage points.
