When humans first started to think about God times were very tough, life was a bitter struggle and naturally people hoped and prayed for a super being to help them, comfort them. The dominant religions of today reflected that attitude, made God in the image of the most powerful man of those days, the king, master or Emperor. This super being is our savior, will save us from having to face a tough, difficult life. If we pray hard, this super being will give us eternal childhood; life in a protected bubble. That has been the narrative of the past and sadly, still remains the narrative of the present. It is time for a paradigm change--time for the strong to write a new narrative about Faith and God. Time to stop asking God for this and that and start saying,"What can I do for God?"… (mais)

I hate giving bad reviews (especially for books I receive for free), but this was utter drivel. I was expecting a researched, analytical review of religion and beliefs, but instead it was just the rantings of someone who quite possibly got their data from a 10-year-old's social studies report. It is a disgrace to theology and I could poke so many holes in this theory that the book would look more like a sieve. To make matters worse, the trite points that were attempted could have been (and were) summed up in the first few pages. Those points were then repeatedly bashed to death for many more. Eventually I gave up and skimmed the rest of the book. Needless to say, it didn't get any better. ( )

Heaven Vs Reincarnation by S. Dharma is quite repetitive. It keeps making the same points over and over again that heaven is for the weak and reincarnation is for the strong. The author bases his argument on the Hindu faith. He dislikes other religions and feels atheists and agnostics may be good people worthy of everlasting life. For he wrote that what God is concerned about is character. Dharma isn’t a believer in miracles and doesn’t feel anything in life comes easily. It’s his belief that to win favor with God people have to do the hard work, and make amends for their shortcomings. According to this belief sin doesn’t exist. It’s all karma and reincarnation. So he asks the question why must people grovel asking God for help? It’s up to us to do the hard work in our lives, and opt for a better rebirth. Dharma sees our goal as being born again and again to be of service to mankind. For him this is the best solution rather than being reborn as an insect, animal, plant, or rock just like being in heaven. It’s an interesting book that certainly shows no regard for Christian beliefs. Although he does mention some prominent Christian believers like Saint Teresa, Martin Luther King, Jr., and president Jimmy Carter as supporting some of his beliefs. ( )

I had hopes that this would either be a philosophical work or a religious studies study. Instead what I read was a poorly written book that was full of bad rhetoric and very repetitive. It was as if he had to write his unsupported and uninformed opinions over and over just to get the amount of words required to have a small book.There are many contradictions with some of the examples that the author uses.

He of course is a strong supporter of his type of Hinduism and reincarnation that is not the same Hinduism that he claims is wrongly practiced by over a billion followers. And any non-Hindu religion is just a fantasy that relies on beginning for pity. Though all that he proposes that leads to a good life and reincarnation are all principles from the New Testament. Either he has never read about any other religion in his life including Hinduism or he is being dishonest.

I have a self imposed rule that once I start a book I must finish it. I almost broke my rule for the first time in over half a century. Do your self a favor and do not read this book. ( )

This was not what I expected. I had hoped the book would provide more of a world view but it had a more narrow focus. ( )

I was frustrated by the excessive repetition of the basic premise of this book which seems to be; embrace reincarnation and all that is wrong in the world will be remedied, eventually. The author seems quite sincere in his point of view, but his writing style was not a smooth flowing expression of his ideas, it was more like hearing someone on a soapbox in the park belting out a religious imperative for the passersby.
