Only three weeks after launch, Pastor John Hagee’s explosive new book, The Three Heavens: Angels, Demons and What Lies Ahead, topped Nielsen BookScan’s nationwide sales tracking for nonfiction religion trade paperbacks.
The Three Heavens, a blend of Bible, science and true stories, explores the ongoing battle between angelic and demonic forces. It was No. 2 on BookScan for all nonfiction religion books, No. 11 for all adult trade paperbacks.
The Three Heavens also is the highest-ranked Christian book on USA Today‘s best-seller list.
“Readers respond to the real-life stories of people who experienced heaven and came back to describe it,” said Hagee, New York Times best-selling author and founder of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio. “We all are fascinated to learn of the ages-long battle—continuing today—between angelic and demonic forces.”
The Three Heavens paints a vivid picture of this supernatural war, describing its effect today and in eternity.
In the First Heaven, Hagee explores what we see with our natural eyes: the beautiful, mysterious, majestic universe of sun, moon, stars and other celestial objects. In clear, engaging writing, he carries readers to the Third Heaven—Paradise, a place of eternal splendor—with firsthand accounts of people who died, saw the Third Heaven and returned.
Then comes the question: If there is a First Heaven and a Third Heaven, is there a Second? From extensive biblical knowledge, pastoral experience and a large network of expert colleagues, Hagee explores the Second Heaven—a battleground where an ongoing war between the forces of good and evil plays out … affecting us on earth now.
The Three Heavens is a biblically reasoned, vividly written exploration of how God’s enemies work; how God’s angels protect and defend; and ultimately what awaits those who accept His invitation to spend eternity with Him.
John Hagee is the author of multiple best-selling books. His most recent New York Times best-seller, Four Blood Moons, inspired a docudrama recently in theaters as a Fathom Event that sold out nationally, prompting a nationwide encore.
