In Heaven As On Earth Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of In Heaven As On Earth

Dr. Peck's story revolves around Dr. Daniel Turpin, a psychiatrist, who lies dying from lung cancer with his two children around him. Daniel is able to feel himself leave his body and knows that he has died. While in “heaven” Daniel encounters other spirits, some in purgatory and some in hell. The allegorical “hell” was quite amusing for those souls depicted living in the bottom of trash can, working for Amalgamated Systems!! Daniel is also able to go back to earth to “check-up” on his children and to visit his former residence that he once shared with his beloved wife. Greeters help Daniel with his adjustment to the afterlife and he learns that he cannot interfere with earthly doings, yet he does have freedom of choice.

We experience Daniel's partial review of his life and his thirst to serve God. The Greeters inform Daniel that there are many committees in heaven, if he so wishes to serve. As Daniel comes to terms with the afterlife and his comfort level takes him out of his paradigm, he becomes adventurous and wants to see and experience more.
