The Great Divorce is a classic by C.S. Lewis (the author of the Narnia books) on heaven and hell. It's probably one of my personal top ten most-loved books of all time. Lewis follows the damned as they take holidays to heaven, and are met by the redeemed who try--and mostly fail--to convince them to stay. It is an incisive take on human nature and how we cling to pride and self-righteousness even on the borders of heaven, as well as a fascinating look at heaven itself: where things are so much more real than on earth that the damned appear there as ghosts. It's a great read to flesh out your picture of what eternity is really like. Price $13.99
